Oh no, no, Gayle King of CBS News is triggered! She feels, excluded
CBS host Gayle King, pointing to a photo of President Donald Trump and Republican Party leaders taken Wednesday night at the White House, told outgoing Speaker Paul Ryan she felt “very excluded” because they were only white males in the photo.
“When I look at that picture, Mr. Speaker, I have to say, I don’t see anybody who looks like me, in terms of color or gender,” King said, emulating the analogy made popular by former President Barack Obama.
“You were one of the main people that said you wanted to do more for the Republican Party—you wanted to expand the base,” King reminded Ryan. “When I look at that picture, I have to say, I don’t feel very celebratory. I feel very excluded.”
Quick, someone pass me some tissues, this is soooooo sad. Not not sad that King feels “excluded”, sad because she is so hung up on skin color and gender
“I don’t like the fact that you feel that way,” he said. “And we need more minorities, more women in our party, and I’ve been focusing on that kind of recruitment.”
What a missed opportunity for Speaker Ryan. Here is what he should have said
“I am sorry that you base your feelings so heavily on your race and gender. I see you as an individual, not as a member of a group. The fact is skin color and gender do not define people. Their values, principles, and personalities do. I think you should join the vast majority of Americans who are well past caring about their “identities” and are above pigeonholing people based on those identities as if everyone’s thinking must conform to fit that “identity”! God made each of us unique, and I celebrate that. I also celebrate the diversity of thought and ideology that has nothing to do with the identity-obsession the left constantly pushes.”
But, of course he missed the opportunity to say something meaningful and opted for political speak. Very sad.
Someone ought to interrupt Gayle King’s pity party long enough to show her this
