Leftists love to declare themselves moral arbiters, particularly within the confines of setting standards of interpersonal behavior. However, they eventually come to find out they themselves are rarely able to adhere to the standards they set.
The whole "every woman has a right to believed and heard when she declares she was sexually harassed/assaulted" was the proverbial exploding cigar in the leftists' collective face when one of their own high profile elected officials (Al Franken) was drummed out of the U.S. Senate.
Another leftist lament was their concern that strong "progressive" female senators Kamala Harris (D-CA) and Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) were the victims of what they felt was GOP misogyny due to separate incidents of them being interrupted and/or "mansplained."
But what Sens. Harris and Warren supposedly endured was nothing in comparison to what Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen had thrown her way by Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ).
Anyone with a scintilla of rational thought could ascertain that the treatment of Nielsen was far more outrageous than anything a female "progressive" ever suffered. So given the standard set by proggies, Booker not only "mansplained" but was a flat out misogynist bully.
Ah, but when questioned on the subject by CNN's Jake Tapper, Sen. Booker was downright indignant.
Sen. Cory Booker responds to RNC claims that he was "mansplaining" the DHS secretary: "It’s a little insulting to say that I should be treating Cabinet secretaries one way or another depending upon their gender" https://t.co/oXFJgMbY8o https://t.co/A8PgO45hV5 — CNN (@CNN) January 17, 2018
You might wanna have a discussion with your fellow progs there, Sen. Booker. They are the ones who proclaim that women in Washington should be treated with verbal kid gloves by male colleagues. Until then, enjoy being called on y'all's naked hypocrisy.
