Jimmy Kimmel Writer Pans Karen Pence’s Dress, Calls Her a “Hate-Mongering Bigot”

Twitter bullies are out trolling the fashion choices of the Second Lady. The harshest and most out-of-place criticism came from a female Jimmy Kimmel show writer, who ironically called it unkind to demean women with whom you disagree just one year ago.

This week, Vice President Mike Pence and his wife Karen hosted King Abdullah II and Queen Rania of Jordan for dinner at their residence.

The media latched on to how Twitter “dragged” Mrs. Pence’s outfit as “mall-bought,” “too tight,” and “too short.”

Mean girls on Twitter will always look for opportunities to impune a woman’s appearance, especially if they are connected to the Trump Administration. However, the harshest criticism came from Bess Kalb, an Emmy-nominated female writer for the Jimmy Kimmel show.

In a string of tweets, she demeaned Karen Pence’s outfit, marriage, faith, and politics:

@BessieKalb: OMG MOTHER KAREN TURNING IT OUT FOR QUEEN RAINA OF JORDAN HONEY YOU SEXY HATE-MONGERING BIGOT HOT NEW JERSEY AUNT!!!!!!!!!!!

THIS JUST COMING THROUGH THE WIRES: MIKE "MIKE" PENCE WILL INDEED SERVE HIMSELF TWO GENEROUS SCOOPS OF MOTHER IN THE NAVAL OBSERVATORY THIS EVENING, HETEROSEXUALLY AND WITH AN UNNERVING AND FRANKLY UPSETTING GUSTO!

In one tweet, she says she’s had a lot of wine, so perhaps her excuse is that this was the result of drunk tweeting. But there’s no excuse for demeaning another woman just because she’s apart of the Trump Administration.

The irony is that one year ago Kalb traded barbs with tv host Meghan McCain, daughter of Republican Senator John McCain, for making fun of Hillary supporters in a series of tweets. One tweet stood out:

@bessbell: More upsettingly, this video you tweeted shows women crushed by her loss. And mocking them for it, whether or not you agree, seems unkind.

Perhaps Ms. Kalb should take a dose of her own medicine about being unkind and mocking women with whom she disagrees. If you’re going to champion women, champion all women.
