Sexist Comments from Outgoing Democrat Senator Tom Harkin … “She is Really Attractive and She Sounds Nice” … “I Don’t Care if She’s as Good looking as Taylor Swift”
WELCOME TO THE DOUBLE STANDARD OF LIBERAL, DEMOCRAT POLITICS … WHAT PARTY HAS THE WAR ON WOMEN?
He said what? As reported at Buzz Feed, Retiring Democratic Iowa Senator Tom Harkin told Iowa voters that they shouldn’t be fooled because Joni Ernst is “really attractive” and “sounds nice.” HUH? The outgoing Harkin made these sexist comments and the crowd actually clapped and cheered. Just curious, how many of the Neanderthals is the crowd are the same people who talk about a GOP war on women? You folks may want to check your knuckles for scrape marks as they appear to be dragging on the ground, including you also, Tom Harkin.
Some folks want to make excuses for Tom Harkin because he is a relic and a dinosaur; however, that does not excuse those in the Democrat supporters in the audience clapping, nor the fact that if Harkin was a Republican the MSM would be making this a front-page October surprise issue to turn the election.
“You know in this Senate race I’ve been watching some of these ads and there’s sort of this sense that [people like] Joni Ernst,” Harkin said. “She is really attractive and she sounds nice, but I got to thinking about that and I don’t care if she’s as good looking as Taylor Swift or as nice as Mr. Rogers, but if she votes like Michele Bachmann, she’s wrong for the state of Iowa.”
But what what else would you expect from a desperate and pathetic political party who finds their Senate control slipping and Republican challenger Joni Ernst surging into the lead for the Senate seat in Iowa. The final Des Moines Register poll had Joni Ernst up by 7.
Wall Street Journal White House correspondent Carol Lee said that Iowa voters are “definitely down” on President Obama and the Democratic Party, creating a distinct advantage for Republican Senate candidate Joni Ernst over Democratic incumbent Bruce Braley.
“I talked to a bunch of voters at that event and some of them coming to that event had voted for Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012 and had regretted voting for him,” Lee said.
“The voters there are definitely down on the president and really looking for somebody different, and [Ernst] seems to be tapping into some kind of sentiment there and it looks like she’s actually going to wind up winning.”
Lee said outgoing Democratic Senator Tom Harkin’s recent comments warning Iowa voters not to be fooled by Ernst because she is “really attractive” and “sounds nice” may backfire on Tuesday.
“If there’s one thing that any politician, particularly a seasoned one like Harkin should know, you don’t talk about women’s looks in that way,” Lee said.
Imagine, just imagine if a Republican, male Senator said the following, “I don’t care if she’s as good looking as Taylor Swift …” Sen. Harkin, I guess it really was time for you to retire. And speaking of Taylor Swift, she had a comment for you below and your mean, sexist comments.
Tom Harkin and Democrats … “All you are is mean and a liar and pathetic and alone in life and mean and mean and mean and mean!!!!! ALL YOU ARE EVER GOING TO BE IS MEAN!”
Republican Senate candidate Joni Ernst said Monday she was “greatly offended” by Sen. Tom Harkin’s remarks last week that Ernst wasn’t fit to be Iowa’s senator just because she’s “really attractive and she sounds nice.”
Ernst fired back Monday on Fox News and said Harkin would have never made those comments if she were a man.
“I was very offended that Sen. Harkin would say that. I think it’s unfortunate that he and many of their party believe you can’t be a real woman if you’re conservative and you’re female,” Ernst said. “I believe if my name had been John Ernst attached to my resume, Sen. Harkin would not have said those things.”
