Last night, the President of the National Organization for Women piled on Sen. Sherrod Brown’s claim that President Obama’s criticism of Sen. Elizabeth Warren as “a politician like everyone else” smacked of sexism and microagression.
This morning, the White House, already reeling from the mass defection of Dems over the Trans-Pacific Partnership, demonstrated exactly how stining Sherrod’s comments were when they used today’s press conference to demand that Brown take his turn on the Naughty Step.
The White House responded Wednesday to Sen. Sherrod Brown’s criticism of President Barack Obama’s treatment of fellow Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren.
White House press secretary Josh Earnest said Brown is “a stand-up guy.”
“I’m confident after he’s had a chance to look at the comments he made yesterday that he’ll find a way to apologize,” he told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Wednesday.
The last thing the White House needs right now, in the midst of realizing that they’re truly grappling with lame duck status, as even their own party can’t get behind the President’s agenda, is to fracture a key voter demographic they need to communicate with in order to subtly stick it to Hillary Clinton shortly before the primaries.
