2020’s Kirsten Gillibrand: I’m Not Doing Well Because of Sexism


In an interview with CNN this weekend, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, still struggling to get any voter support for her 2020 presidential aspirations, said that sexism was the likely cause of her failing campaign. Refusing to acknowledge the possibility that her dull personality, her tiresome brand of feminism, or her simple lack of widespread name recognition could be to blame for her nonexistent poll numbers, Gillibrand pointed her finger at “gender bias” when asked to explain why she’s been “underestimated” in the race.

“I think it’s just gender bias,” she said. “I think people are generally biased against women. I think also biased against young women. There’s just bias and it’s real and it exists, but you have to overcome it.”

Not sure if Gillibrand, 52, is trying to apply the “young women” label to herself, but hey, more power to you.

Gillibrand expanded on why she thought she had a chance at the nomination, despite having to climb the sexism hurdle.

“Voters will give a woman a shot,” she said. “They just have to get to know her. They might make a judgment without knowing her, but once they meet her and know who she is and why she’s running, they will give her that opportunity. If I’m going to be the candidate of the women’s vote, which I fully intend to be, those voters might not come home until October or November or December.”

As the 2020 Democratic primaries move forward, expect to hear a lot more of this kind of nonsense. So far, Gillibrand is the only candidate we’ve seen really leaning into this excuse for not doing well, but it’s probably only a matter of time before Elizabeth Warren, Amy Klobuchar, and Kamala Harris look at their poll numbers, scratch their heads, and then join the feminist bloggers who insist that all political coverage of all liberal women is mired in sexism. It happened in 2016, it’s already happening this year, and it’s going to get a lot worse before it gets better.

God, can you imagine the kind of liberal media shield that would go up for a Democratic female president? They spent eight years telling us that every criticism the GOP threw at Barack Obama was tinged with some kind of racism. With a female president, this idiotic “sexism” shield would be even more potent.

At least Obama had the good taste to never say, “Hey, you can’t say that about me, I’m black!”

Gillibrand can’t even let others do the complaining for her.

What do you think?

  1. just like hillary…..ignores her obvious faults and can’t accept any responsibility for her self. And she thinks that people want to be led by an incompetent egotist?? GROW UP

    • What arrogance by Ms Gillibrand, if folks dont like it blame sexism. How about the fact that she’s entirely NOT presidential material???

      • Nothing for her in this situation!! Sexism is not a word in our language or culture!! Stick it where the sun don’t shine on you!! Consider that NO ONE LIKES YOU!! Feel better now?? Get mental evaluation, ASAP!!

    • I wish the people of NY would wake up and vote this useless politician out of office. But, honestly, the people of NY are waking up..they are beginning to see that Cuomo, DeBlasio, Schumer and Gillibrand and others are really hurting their state. I can see these four gone next election cycle. Democrats are good for nobody except their own pockets

    • Amen!!! She is oblivious like Hillary was to her faults. Suffers from what all the Democratic candidates experience – permanent loss of integrity and grasp of reality.

  2. O how disingenuous of you Kirsten Gillibrand. Truth is you my dear self obsorbed person ,fall smack dabb in to the category of delusional NIT WITs . Sexism isnt your problem. Your main concern should center around the obvious.. Which of course is this, 33% of our electorate is completely ignorant, gullible or extremely niave !
    ( In other words DUMB AS A BOX OF ROCKS.) Split 20 ways leaves you holding A marginal 3% support of the dumbest of dumb indiviiduals whom should by all logic be forever band from voting!

  3. It isn’t her gender it is because she swings back and forth from one loose cannon idea to the next looking for some way to fool voters into thinking she is anything but a loon! She is as scatterbrained as they come. As for Kamala she is a wise mouthed witch that thinks prostitution is an honorable profession…wrong! Klobuchar isn’t smart enough to get out of the snow storm. Voters would back an intelligent forth-coming woman but not these phony females.

  4. Kristen Gillibrand whatever you do I can help you find the real reason you are down in the polls.
    Your a phony, an opportunist, care about only number one like all Socialist. So look in the Mirror and what you see is the problem. Get real you have done nothing as Schumer’s lackey.

  5. Would I expect any less? Excuses and blame coming from a marginal politician as to why she is such a loser.

  6. I wonder if this moron will ever grasp that the sexism she feels is in her mind? Within her own pathetic cranium? Probably not. Morons do not catch on easily.

  7. between you ,elizybets warennegal and aoc there isn’t enough brains to register on a micro-scale . YOU ARE LIKE A TEEN GIRL WITH A SCIMPY DRESS THAT SHOWS FUR SCREAMING AT PEOPLE FOR LOOKING AT YOU. GO GET A LIFE SOMEWHERE ELSE IN SOME OTHER COUNTRY CUBA/ VENESUELA/ RUSSIA /CHINA ….JUST NOT THIS ONE…

  8. This has nothing to do with her being a women. It’s because she’s an idiot that she’s getting no support.

  9. Kirsten Gillibrand is my Senator from NY State! I had the distinct honor to vote against her in the last election! She won anyway! She occupies the seat of her predecessor, Hillary Clinton, and was hand walked into office by the NY State Democrat machine. She has a near perfect record of having done nothing for her constituents during her tenure in office! In that, she is much like Hillary!
    Take my word for it, her word is no good at all! She will say anything and support most any cause if the end result gets her on the positive side of vote procurement!
    She is a flipflopper and a liar and cannot be trusted! Gender has nothing to do with her failure to become relevant as a candidate for any election!
    If it matters to anyone, she also has a profanity vocabulary and a foul mouth to support it!

  10. You are not doing well because you are a female liberal socialist democrat with a female liberal socialist platform. No one should enter presidential race without being sure they can endure to the end. This is not sexism. You are sounding like Hillary. Yo blame something else other than yourself. What a waste od all of these donors money on cadidates who are going nowhere. I am not wasting my money on a known loser.

  11. Oh boo hoo hoo. Another poor me whiny liberal. It’s always some ones else fault. Girl, you just aren’t packing the equipment. Get a grip.

  12. wouldn’t you love to be sitting at the dinner table every night with this trashy mouth , clinton suck ass, i don’t think so .hopefully in 2024 we will have a real lady with class,and brains running for president # NICKI HALEY

  13. If sexism is to blame for her unpopularity, then it is reverse sexism. Because women outnumber men in almost every eligibility category in the 2016 general election. That’s why it was never a valid reason when Killary claimed discrimination and “weak minded” women who voted what they where told to by “the men” in their lives.

  14. It because she an moron that why . go home and stop your lieing socialist agenda face it no one is going to vote for you because can’t non of you do what Mr.Trump has done for our nation economy. We had a soicalist democrats in office for 8 years and our nation economy went to shit because of you all soicalist high taxes EPA REGALATION kills jobs you wanted everyone to be on foodstamp and welfare. Fuck all that shit we want less gov.lower taxes and more jobs

  15. ” I think also biased against young women.” STFU You couldn’t be dumber. Between you Cuommo Deblasio and AOC You three are the dumbest of all citizens in the USA. I can’t believe NYers are voting idiots like you into office.

  16. Gillibrand is not doing well because she is a back-stabbing, flip-flopping, and lying crook. Gender has NOTHING to do with it. Now she has finally been caught for her involvement in NXIVM as a formal member along with her father and stepmother. This is a notorious sex cult who has blackmailed several people in congress and judges into keeping them from being indicted. That plan has failed because the trial is taking place.

  17. Gillibrand your not doing well not because of sexism your not doing well because your a idiot a moron a bimbo you couldn’t run a ice cream truck as far as you becoming president not a chance in hell nobody likes you you might get 5 votes and all family

  18. To Quote Speaker:Nancy Pelosi regarding the infamous AOC, a glass of water could have been elected to Secretary of State Hillay Clinton Senate seat in the highly Democratic State of New York. What has she done that would want anyone to vote for her? I suggest like AOC, nothing.

  19. She is not a good “fit” for President of the United States. It has nothing to do with her sex, race or faith. She just doesn’t have what it takes for the job. As with most of those running for President in 2020.

  20. It’s not due to sexism, it’s simply because she just doesn’t have the brains to do the job of president.

  21. Gillibrandt is part of a women Liberal Regressive Demonkkkrat party that is actually antithesis of what a republic is about. They are dumb, dumber and dumbest to say the least which is typical of our modern Liberal women nowadays.
    Whatever happen to the Barbara Jordan’s brands of the past. Gone when she die.
