The Washington Post further embarrasses themselves and the journalism profession…

Remember as you read these lies below from the Washington Post today – that Trump proposed the women’s leave bill currently in Congress, that his policies and tax cuts are wonderful for American families and that the WaPo and other liberal idiots would literally do anything – EVEN BETRAY THEIR OWN AGENDA – to save a LIBERAL horse’s ass like Al Franken, a bad comic and a worse politician.

Washington Post — As a feminist and the author of a book on rape culture, I could reasonably be expected to lead the calls for Al Franken to step down, following allegations that he forced his tongue down a woman’s throat, accompanied by a photo of him grinning as he moves in to grope her breasts while she sleeps. It’s disgusting. He treated a sleeping woman as a comedy prop, no more human than the contents of Carrot Top’s trunk, and I firmly believe he should suffer social and professional consequences for it.

But I don’t believe resigning from his position is the only possible consequence, or the one that’s best for American women.

Cynics on both the right and left will presume I am passing by this particular steam tray on 2017’s smorgasbord of feminist outrage because Franken is a Democrat, and so am I. (I was even his proud constituent for two years.) In the most superficial sense, this is true. But it’s meaningless to say it’s because I am a Democrat without asking why I am a Democrat. If you understand what it means to be a Democrat today — that is, why it makes sense to vote blue over red in this highly polarized political environment — you can understand why it might not make the most sense to demand Franken’s resignation, effective immediately.

I am a Democrat because I am a feminist who lives under a two-party system, where one party consistently votes against the interests of women while the other sometimes does not. 

If women are gullible enough to buy this nonsense, they deserve the leaders the Democratic Party has presented them with — mostly liars and rapists.
