1. I love Kate McKinnon. But, I didn't love the 'drunk on power' portrayal of @SpeakerPelosi on #SNL last night. Coupled with the Furies piece in NYT by @maureendowd it's particularly troubling.
2. No one plays harder ball or behaves more brazenly than @senatemajldr, and he is backed by a #GOP that will not be dissuaded by concerns of ethics, compassion or decorum. This is what we're up against. We voted in a blue wave, but, specifically, a wave of women leaders.
3. I don't imagine you voted for this female leadership because you wanted to continue on the destructive path of Trump and the #GOP. Yet, right away, we're placing patriarchal constructs on these women and judging them on likability, niceness, and decorum.
4. Make no mistake, these women leaders are here to fight and save our democracy. They are here to win. And that's exactly what we need. Don't hamstring them with condescending gender-based double-standards. It's long past time to move past it.
