Just like how telling someone to “chill” only makes them more angry, referring to a woman as “hysterical” is an adjective to stay away from, according to the ladies of ABC’s the View.
During Friday’s show the ladies got into the much discussed Senate Intelligence Committee hearings, specifically when Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) was interrupted during her questioning of the witnesses and called “hysterical” by former Trump campaign adviser Jason Miller.
Co-host Joy Behar said, “So the former aide Jason Miller it was said he was being hysterical, quote, unquote. Do you think they would use the word hysterical against a male senator?”
“They would never do it, and I know Kamila Harris. She is one of the most even-keeled stately people. She is a former prosecutor and she was using that experience to kind of cross-examine him. Don’t we want that?” replied host Sunny Hostin.
Jedediah Bila took up the mantle of what sounds like every man in a failing relationship by saying, “If you watch her, and I have watched her repeatedly, she doesn’t oftentimes let people answer the question. That is a fact. She doesn’t let them answer to the point where they are, like, ‘can I answer the question?’ You need to be careful in this country or anywhere when you label everything sexist. She is a big girl, smart and confident and capable. I don’t need to feel sorry for her in this situation.”
And it ended in realistic fashion.
Hostin said, “Calling a woman hysterical is sexist.”
Bila conceded, “OK, that’s fine.”
