I’m not going to say this is a lie, weirder things have happened, but, come on. Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren claims the she was sexually harassed by a colleague when she was a law professor. In fact several democrats have come forward to claim victimhood at the hands of evil men. Democrats turned a blind eye to serial rapist Bill Clinton and sexual predator Harvey Weinstein for decades, but suddenly it’s trendy on the left to be outraged by something they have tolerated and encouraged for so long.
Meet the Press reached out to all 21 female Senators to get their stories about sexual harassment and only got 4 (all democrats), most of whom weren’t harassed at all. Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill told this story when she was seeking advice from a male state lawmaker about getting her bill passed:
“I cautiously approached the very powerful speaker of the Missouri House of Representatives. He looked at me and paused and he said, ‘Well, did you bring your kneepads?’ I do think he was joking, but it was shocking that he would make that joke to a colleague,” said McCaskill.
Okay, even McCaskill thinks that guy was joking so let’s call this first one BS; she wasn’t harassed.
Next, North Dakota Senator Heidi Heitkamp talked about how a male law enforcement official said something to her after she made some sort of an effort to curb domestic violence:
“He put his finger in my face and he said, ‘Listen here, men will always beat their wives and you can’t stop ‘em,’” said Heitkamp.
That might be “mansplaining” but it’s not close at all to sexual harassment. So far these ladies are 0 for 2.
Hawaii Senator Mazie Hirono had the least credible sexual harassment story by claiming men have asked her out on dates:
“I’ve been propositioned by teachers, by my colleagues, and you name it,” Hirono said.
0 for 3, which brings us to Elizabeth Warren who said a colleague once invited her to his office:
“He slammed the door and lunged for me. It was like a bad cartoon. He’s chasing me around the desk, trying to get his hands on me. After several rounds, I jumped for the door and got out and I went back to my office and just sat and shook and thought: ‘What have I done to bring this on?’” Warren said.
Warren also mentioned that she kept this attempted attack to herself, which adds zero credibility to her story.
Maybe this did happen, but Warren looks a sissy little boy, so I doubt it. Then again, some dudes have very weird fetishes. If I had to venture a guess, I’d say that Warren’s colleague was just trying to play “Cowboys and Indians” and she misinterpreted it. If it happened when she was a law professor, that’s back when she was pretending to be a Native American princess. It seems cultural appropriation really does have a price.
