Susan Sarandon in two Tweets, on the same day

Tweet 1: Scolding Elizabeth Warren as insufficiently committed to the cause of equality and fighting the elites


Susan Sarandon Verified account
‏@SusanSarandon

Susan Sarandon Retweeted Elizabeth Warren

Is this meant to be ironic after you just endorsed Clinton???

Susan Sarandon added,
Elizabeth Warren @SenWarren
Government should be accountable to the people, not Wall Street lobbyists, deep-pocketed donors, and secretive Super PACs.



Tweet 2: Italian cashmere!

‏@SusanSarandon

Don't be a Susan Sarandon.

As Mama said, if you don't have something good to say about someone, then just don't say anything.

Well, I guess I can't say anything about Susan's meteoric rise to becoming queen of nitwits then

(Special mention goes out to Roseanne Barr whose also in the running with Susan for nitwit queen).

57. Sanders called HRC unqualified after she implied he was

...and the WaPo ran a headline that she called him unqualified.

I don't know if Blue Nation Review has a lot of readers but some who read it post links at DU and Twitter.

I don't think Weaver was being sexist:


A top aide to Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders warned late Tuesday that rival Hillary Clinton is running a divisive campaign that is hurting party unity.

"Don't destroy the Democratic Party to satisfy the secretary's ambitions to become president of the United States," Sanders campaign manager Jeff Weaver told CNN.

"We want to have a party at the end of this that we can unify," he added.

60. yes, Sanders called her unqualified because he didn't bother reading past

 

the headline of a Washington Post article. There's irony there if you look for it.

This wasn't Weaver's only offense (he also mansplained to Barbara Boxer how she had no right to feel afraid of an angry mob), but it was his most shining example:

http://www.vox.com/2016/4/6/11378306/hillary-clinton-lol-ambition-attack

fter Sanders won the Wisconsin primary Tuesday night, CNN's Jake Tapper asked Weaver whether the Sanders campaign is prepared for a tougher, possibly more negative campaign. Weaver countered, however, that the Clinton camp needs to stop going on the attack.

"This is what I would say to them, which is, you know, don't destroy the Democratic Party to satisfy the secretary's ambitions to become president of the United States," Weaver said. "We want to have a party at the end of this we can unify. Let's have a tough debate. Let's talk about the issues there's a sharp contrast between the two of them. But let's not denigrate other people's supporters and tear the party apart."

How audacious of Clinton (who remains the party's frontrunner) to want to win her race! It's not like she's been called "one of the most broadly and deeply qualified presidential candidates in modern history," or spent time in the White House, or organized one of the most powerful fundraising operations in the election. Seems like someone sprinkled a bit too much presidential ambition in her oatmeal this morning, amiright?

When asked by CNN's Chris Cuomo to comment on Sanders's assertion that her ambitions are "destroying the Democratic Party," she simply took a moment for a hearty laugh. After catching her breath, she called the idea that she's too ambitious "ludicrous" and went on to tout her work defending and fundraising for the party for the past 40 years.


Of course criticism about Clinton is expected from her opponent's campaign manager. And while some male candidates are called "too ambitious," women's ambitions are often conflated with selfishness.

Weaver's comments don't exist in a vacuum. They reflect the classic gendered critiques made of powerful women. While leadership and likability go hand in hand for men, the opposite is true for women. Study after study shows that women are often punished for seeking positions of power and are less likely to be promoted for those roles despite having equal or better skills than their male counterparts.

In fact, Weaver's description of Clinton fits so neatly into the stale sexist stereotype about powerful women that there's an actual Onion article from 2006 called "Hillary Clinton Is Too Ambitious to Be President." Ten years later, it seems like instead of progressing on female leadership, we're even farther away from reckoning with it.

Clinton knew smashing the glass ceiling of presidential politics would be arduous, but she probably didn't know it would include seeing a decade-old Onion headline become reality.


Weaver's comments were a sexist dog whistle. We can all look forward to his absence from the national conversation going forward.

64. so what?

 

Sanders campaign did a 1-2 punch of calling her "unqualified" and then said she was destroying the party because of her selfish ambition.

In other words, they were telling her to know her place and get back under the glass ceiling, and to not screw things up for the men. Despite the fact she was more qualified and had spent decades building the party Sanders had joined only in order to further his own presidential ambitions, and which he had sued and accused of committing felonious violations of federal banking law.

http://www.usnews.com/opinion/blogs/opinion-blog/articles/2016-04-15/sanders-self-righteousness-allows-sexist-overtones-in-attacks-on-clinton

I repeat, Jeff Weaver is a sexist asshole and he will not be missed when he goes back to his comic book store.

And after that sexist 1-2 punch they tried to land (but whiffed on badly) please spare us the idea that they were the victims of an ugly smear campaign.

69. why did Weaver feel compelled to criticize someone seeking

 

to be the first woman president in our history for being ambitious?

And, on a related note, how does such an attack make sense given that Bernie Sanders was running for the same job?

Sanders's dumb comments about Clinton being unqualified maybe can be described as an impulsive, uninformed, rash blunder.

Weaver's comments played on a very well-known trope, on the other hand, that women deserve special criticism for trying to break into the boys' club.

41. Gasp! The evil Susan Sarandon!

 

I will never understand Hillary supporters obsession with this woman. Reminds me of the right wing practice called, scapegoating.

66. They don't like to hear the truth.

It is incongruous that someone who has built a reputation for taking on Wall Street is supporting someone who thinks Wall Street is just fine, and is on their payroll.

77. Thelma & Louise

 

If you can't talk about the real issues, you talk about Susan Sarandon.

I liked Thelma & Louise. I watched it on the movie station not long ago.

43. I guess their both hypocrites

Sarandon for not be excited for the first woman nominee and Warren for letting bernie die on the vine


So it cancels out. Have a great weekend.

51. It's a contradiction that

...Susan Sarandon doesn't trust HRC to regulate Wall St, and Sarandon likes free clothes?

If so, I have the same contradiction.

59. She's a hypocrite. She has no problem with quid pro quo as long as she's the benefactor.

87. So Sarandon is in charge of deciding government policy now? If not, who gives a damn.

61. +1 She made a TV commercial with her own money, asking why we were going to war in Iraq.

Something, "Before we go to war in Iraq, I would like to know what Iraq did to us, wouldn't you?"

I wish someone had answered her question before the invasion wrought so much death, destruction and havoc.

The bit about cashmere is nonsense, typical of the obvious desperation to post negative things.

80. Classic. And you know what's really funny?

Those clothes are hideous, like something Virginia Woolf would wear to scrub the WC.
