The best part about this brilliant take-down is that Trump’s guy has absolutely no idea how badly he is being humiliated.
In this new Trump-America misogynists think they have license to make sexist attacks on women…especially women in power…without concern of negative consequences. And, big surprise, many of these assholes are surrogates of Donald Trump.
But women are keenly aware of what’s going on. And they’re not having it.
On Tuesday night, CNN political analyst Kirsten Powers expertly took down Trump surrogate Jason Miller after he made a sexist comment about Senator Kamala Harris.
Earlier on Tuesday, Harris participated in the grilling of Jeff Sessions at the Senate Intel Committee hearing. All of the Democrats asked tough questions. And several of them pushed aggressively. But by Tuesday night Trump surrogates were attacking just one of them. Kamala Harris.
Miller complained about Harris’ questioning. And then called her “hysterical.” Kirsten Powers immediately called him out.
“How was Sen. Harris hysterical? I don’t really understand that. I mean, she was asking some tough questions.”
Miller then, seemingly caught off guard, tried to justify his comment.
“From my perspective — my, I would say, objective perspective — I mean it was … it didn’t seem like there was any effort to try to get to a real question or get to the bottom of it.”
Powers fired back, “I think she asked a lot of questions, actually. She was very dogged.”
Miller pathetically responded, “Look, I have my opinion on that. I think she was hysterical.” He then commented on some of the tough Democratic men. But he insisted that they were not hysterical.
Giving him just enough rope to hang himself, Powers very sarcastically said, “But he wasn’t hysterical and she was. OK, I just wanted to clear that up. Got it.”
