Kirsten Gillibrand on The View made me want to scream!

Last edited Wed Apr 24, 2019, 02:16 PM - Edit history (1)

Yeah, I watch. No Megan today. But Joy Behar directly challenged her on Al Franken and she had the gall to reply that the “big donors and Democratic elites” wanted him back but ordinary voters didn’t. I almost threw my prodigious coffee mug at the screen.

Thank goodness she’s got a snowball’s chance in hell.

Thanks. Had to get that off my chest.

Edit for footage. Start at 3:30. I paraphrased but watching it again pisses me off even more.

If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden

and is still pissed off because I won't get to do it again, wants him back very much (no offense to Tina Smith, who seems to be doing a pretty good job). I double-dog-dare her to come to Minnesota and say that; she'd be ridden out of town on a rail by a whole lot of ordinary voters.

11. "big donors and Democratic elites" wanted him back but ordinary voters didn't."

 

How does she know this? Did she offer polling data on this information?

I don't think her problem with raising money is only about Al Franken. She seems to want to put the blame there, but there are other reasons. Mainly, I think it is her former incarnation as being pro gun and having other right leaning policy positions. In a national primary race, that is a lot harder to overcome than at the state level.

Though I do give her a lot of credit for voting against every single one of Trump's nominees.

She may be the first to drop out.

Joy Behar was clearly angry. She started off by saying Al was her friend and his powerful voice had been lost. KG just blew that off, ignored it completely. It was an insult. It was clear she wasn’t much liked at that table.

I have watched several interviews that she has had where the question of Al Franken has come up. She clearly does not want to discuss what happened. She just blows it off and continues with her talking points. It seems she cannot admit her mistakes or make an apology. I want a person of substance as our next president, and I don't believe she fits my criteria. We have a great field of candidates to choose from and we can do better.

I can't stand to listen to her. She lacks the ability to project and to speak with the confidence and self-assured demeanor that one naturally expects from someone who's vying to become the Leader of the Free World.

Timidity never wins and would never garner the respect and demand the attention that's needed when dealing with hostile adversaries.

118. That was then...

 

this is now. Since the railroading of Senator Franken I have seen Senator Gillibrand taking credit for her role frequently. There was a post on DU that showed an email from the Gillibrand campaign that was citing her brave actions getting Franken to resign as a reason to send her money. In contrast I don't remember Senator Warren mentioning it once since the Franken's resignation. You may want the world to see Senator Gillibrand as one of many, but she is pretty busy telling us she led the charge. Any way carry on, those windmills aren't going to tilt themselves.

So many issues, and this is the one that she is "attached" to, and she's not found a way to defend it in a way that wins over so many Dems, nor has she found a way to get anybody to move on beyond that one issue.
In a campaign that has what is almost an embarrassment of highly qualified candidates, she gives everyone a quick and easy reason to check her off of the list.

And for the record Behar, Maddox and Hayes never brought with any of the 35 others. Like I said, it’s a double standard.

"this is the one that she is "attached" to, and she's not found a way to defend it in a way that wins over so many Dems, nor has she found a way to get anybody to move on beyond that one issue."

With so many seeking the one spot, getting trapped in one issue can be the kiss of death (so to speak). She is not working herself out of the mess she's in. Sorta' like John Kerry - decorated war veteran, attacked by the "Swift Boat" mob. In his case, it was BullShit, yet he did not have a swift, solid defense or attack against it.

As for KG, the attacks may or may not be BullShit - but she's not coming up with a meaningful way to get anybody to move on or consider whatever else her strengths as a candidate may be.

The Democratic candidate will need a solid core of support to win in 2020. Seems pretty obvious, at least to me if you've read anything else on this thread, that she's gonna' have a very difficult time getting even a minimal amount of support from Democrats.

She was also paid $100,000 by Stone a week prior. Gillibrand carries water for repugs for her own advancement and she's anathema to me.

...To me that disqualified her more than anything else. I'm in the NY media market so I was aware of her well before her national profile and her self-serving nature has always come through in everything she's done and said. And given that pretty much most politicians are to some degree self-serving and with inflated ego (ESPECIALLY NYC politicians), for her to stick out as such should show just how bad she is in that regard.

Franken was just the incident that opened everyone else's eyes it seems.

but NY isn't a shoe-in for Democrats. There are many deep red areas in NY. Otherwise the NY Senate and House would be completely blue, and it's far from that. Rural areas especially go for Trump. I live in western NY. The city of Buffalo is blue, but get outside of the city and it's dead-red. The same with the Rochester area, Syracuse area, and Albany area. The southern tier of NYS might as well be Kentucky. All apologies if you live in the southern tier.

Monroe County can actually be quite conservative, especially once you leave Rochester. But Hillary carried it, as did every Dem presidential nominee since Dukakis, I believe.

In '16 Trump ran up his numbers in NY in the rural areas, just like he did in every other state. Hillary still crushed him. If Gillibrand were the nominee against Trump she'd carry NY easily by virtue of being a quasi-conservative Democrat. I'm not worried about losing NY.

Now Pennsylvania would be a problem, though. As would Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin and, yes, Minnesota. That's if Gillibrand were the nominee.....

Then there was the Franken thing. On top of all that, after Hillary handed her the NY Senate seat on a silver platter, she threw Bill Clinton under the bus saying he should have resigned because of Blowjob-gate.

Watching that video you posted made me want to puke because of what a fraud she is. I had to laugh, though, when she had one of those homina homina moments when she was asked about how she felt about Biden's touchy feely moments. That was right after she asked about her role in the Franken resignation.

She pounced on Al Franken and led the charge without even stepping back to look at the evidence, or even to consider that the charges against him might have been a Republican set-up. If, heaven forbid, she ever became President, the Republicans would be able to play her like a f-ing fiddle! Heck, she might even be a useful idiot who would be Putin's second choice for President in 2020!

How can she say it’s just donors and elites when I see tons of comments every where I post upset at what she did to Al.

If it was as bad as she said why haven’t we heard of Al going to court? She just wanted to take the competition out, I thought he was going to run and I would have voted for him.

And this performance solidifies her lead in last place.

She seems to me to be playing a tape in her head rather than actually reacting to and having compassion for others. She straight up insulted Joy with what she said and then without a breath shilled for her website and donations. It was as though she has a canned response and cares not one bit about actually saying what she had worried about, feared, thought...I do not want that woman in power.

136. Gillibrand blew her big chance to expose Roger Stone

 

Al Franken is/was innocent. An investigation would've exposed Roger Stone's rat-fucking and all the other dirty republican/fascists in this scam.

Gillibrand apparently had cred in helping real victims of sexual assault and sexual harassment. (So I'm told, I didn't even know who she was until she stuck a shiv in my senator's back.)

Given her track record on this issue, she would have/could have investigated this and exposed it. That might've put her ahead of others running to be the Democratic candidate for president.

But nope. She didn't. Roger Stone's a rat from way back. Gillibrand could have shown another generation his dirty work. He took hacked emails from that stinky rapey guy who was recently drug out of the embassy, Assange (sp?)

And instead I had to sweat out that 2018 election for Tina Smith, and sweat out all the Russian/fascist hacking and meddling.

146. I was just at the point where I thought we might possibly win with a female nominee....

 

But to see all the gendered attacks on Gillibrand makes me think my first instinct was correct.

Sexism is so pervasive, people don't really see it. Yes, even women. Even Democrats.

To talk about her voice, her being brittle and entitled.... all those things I only hear about female candidates?

It makes me really, really nervous. At least most white people agree racism is bad. Sexism? No one even wants to admit it exists -- or, if it does, it couldn't possibly be true of YOU.

Just knock it off. You don't support her? Fine. Try and do it on the basis of something other than anti-woman cliches.
