Elizabeth Warren was successful in blocking key provisions of the Trans-Pacific Partnership today. Naturally, Obama’s feelings were hurt and he called her “just another politician”. I have been waiting for this day a long time. Democrats throwing a victim identification card in Obama’s face. Sticking it to the man!
From The American Spectator:
Sen. Sherrod Brown, the unabashed progressive Senator from Ohio, did not take kindly to President Obama’s designation of Sen. Warren as nothing more than a run-of-the-mill elected official with no market value. And to prove that he was offended, he told a reporter, in only mildly uncertain terms, that the President was a big, fat sexist.Democratic senator Sherrod Brown is subtly accusing President Barack Obama of sexism in his attacks on Senator Elizabeth Warren, also a Democrat.
“I think the president was disrespectful to her by the way he did that…made this more personal,” Brown told reporters.
“I think referring to her as her first name, when he might not have done that for a male senator, perhaps–I’ve said enough.”
Live by the sword of identity politics, die by the sword of identity politics, I suppose.
Enjoy the show, there is going to be a lot more where this came from for the next year and a half.
