And there, folks, is another bold and double underlined example of the sexist double standard in how male and female political candidates are covered. Males who exhibit this behavior are "driven," or "focused". Women are "cold," "bitchy," "mean," etc.

It's flat out not fair, and I say that as someone who's not really at all a Klobuchar supporter coming out of the gates because I think she's way to squishy in love with the concept of bipartisanship the same way Obama was at first to her own detriment.

But these things need to be said now, because they same bullshit is going to be deployed against every female candidate in the Democratic primary and it's not right. It's not.
Agreed. I will say that whipping out a comb and eating a salad with it, then making the staff clean it is kinda odd. However, it does show resourcefulness when faced with a utensil shortage.

Feinstein responded in a tweet about the Sunrise Movement meeting.

Only she called them the "Sunshine Movement" instead...

The Democratic Party has a generation problem as well as an oligarch-ball cradling problem.
