Kirsten Gillibrand’s fundraising has been so anemic that she may not be able to participate in the party’s presidential debates — unlike Andrew Yang and Tulsi Gabbard, who already have made the cut.
It turns out that, at least in a crowded field, being stupid and unprincipled can be a handicap for a Democrat. Who knew?
Kirsten Gillibrand, who managed to become a U.S. senator only because Hillary Clinton vacated her seat to become Obama’s SecState and the governor of New York wanted a woman to fill the seat, miraculously transformed from a Blue Dog Democrat representing a conservative upstate district into a full blown progressive when winning a statewide election was necessary.
Now that she is running for president, it’s getting more difficult to conceal her vacuity. People are noticing, even in the Washington Post, the New York Times, and New York Magazine (which, after all, want a strong opponent for Trump):
On a visit to South Carolina, she went to a meeting in a chicken-&-waffles restaurant and began eating her chicken with a fork, then noticed that others were using their hands, and politely asked the owner what was better. Upon being informed that she should use her hands, she did so. But it was too late; her true nature as an out-of-touch fraud had been revealed.
