Apparently liberals are only willing to stand up for feminism when the female in question is a Democrat.
Following her promotion from deputy to head White House press secretary, journalists on the left have been willfully harsh on Sarah Huckabee Sanders this week. A writer from the Daily Beast, Ira Madison III, stooped beyond low, however, tweeting out a picture of Sanders giving a press briefing with the caption: “Butch queen first time in drags at ball”.
The response from the left has been the definition of hypocritical, as the exact same people who condemned right figures like Trump and Bill O’Reilly for their misogyny are taking pleasure in piling on Sanders with irrelevant criticisms of her appearance.
“I fetl like Sarah Huckabee Sanders left and right eye switched places or something,” comedian Akliah Hughes wrote on Twitter.
“Sarah Huckabee Sanders looks like every woman eating lobster on a cruise ship,” “Family Guy” writer Damien Fahey tweeted.
Switch Sanders with Michelle Obama and the outcry from the left would be enough to crumble a castle. But Fox News Todd Starnes notes that no such uproar has taken place.
When newly hired White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci made a comment about Sanders’ hair and makeup person, it generated headlines in the Post, the Hill and Newsweek.
“Sarah, if you’re watching, I love the hair and makeup person that we had on Friday, so I’d like to continue to use the hair and makeup person,” Scaramucci told CNN’s Jake Tapper.
And yet following the Daily Beast smear, nothing.
