Rosie, Let’s Respect Women When Even When We Disagree
Yesterday on Twitter, Rosie O’Donnell said that Sarah Huckabee Sanders, White House press secretary to President Donald Trump, will “sit in hell” for “doing exactly what he [Trump] wants.” O’Donnell’s comments aimed at delegitimizing Sanders’ qualifications were in response to a tweet by MSNBC host Nichole Wallace:
and who on trumps team would ever consider doing that - she is doing exactly what he wants - and she will sit in hell - no doubt https://t.co/FfU8ztkiq7— ROSIE (@Rosie) January 23, 2018
It’s actually time for someone to sit SHS down and say “yes, you have a tough job, yes, you are smoother than Spicer and more stable than Mooch, but if you ever use your taxpayer funded job again to denigrate the Intelligence of a reporter or a sitting US Senator, you’re fired”— Nicolle Wallace (@NicolleDWallace) January 22, 2018
Dismissing conservative women in leadership positions is not new for O’Donnell. Rosie's tweet came just a day after she attacked CNN’s Chris Cuomo for interviewing Kellyanne Conway who she denigrated as a liar:
Chris - spare us ur journalistic heroics - she lies Chris - u put her on - and u act stunned - indignant - YOU KNOW SHE LIES - WE KNOW SHE LIES - STOP TALKING TO HER CHRIS - u r no ones hero captain obvious - YOU ARE THE GATEKEEPERS CUOMO!!!! DO UR JOB DAMN IT #DONTBOOKLIARS— ROSIE (@Rosie) January 23, 2018
There’s nothing wrong with disagreement, but disagreement is no excuse for objectification or disrespect. This is unacceptable language to use against any woman regardless of political ideology. We cannot allow a double standard.
It’s time to recognize, include, and champion ALL women everywhere. Please click on the social media icons below to share this story with your friends and family.
