Sarah Huckabee Sanders is the latest victim of complete utter disrespect garnered at conservative women. Last week she was named the new acting Press Secretary for the President of the United States of America. Her new primary responsibility is to act as spokesperson for the President, senior executives, and their policies.
That’s a huge accomplishment and one that should be celebrated.
She is only the 3rd woman to hold this prestigious position since President Herbert Hoover named George E. Ackerson press secretary in March of 1929.
Only two other women have held the position.
The first was Dee Dee Myers who was appointed by President Clinton in 1993. She served until December of 1994. Interestingly enough, according to a September 1994 article in the New York Times, Clinton chose her as part of his gender diversity commitment and when he gave Leon Panetta more power to make decisions — Panetta wanted to fire her. President Clinton thought it would look bad so they gave her a “promotion” to “Assistant to the President.”
In her 2008 book, “Why Women Should Rule the World,” Myers often complained about the lack of consistent access to the President’s inner circle and that she wasn’t paid the same as the previous male press secretaries.
That can’t be true, right? I thought the left was all about ending the gender pay gap?
Dana Perino was the second female to serve the country as press secretary. She was appointed by President Bush in September of 2007 and held the position until the end of his administration in January of 2009. She went on to have a successful career in broadcasting as a co-host of Fox News’, “The Five.”
In keeping with the Left and MSM’s effort to completely ignore accomplishments made by conservative women — Huckabee Sanders was only in the position a few moments before she was maliciously attacked by The Daily Beast’s, Ira Madison III.
He tweeted out, “Butch queen first time in drags at ball.” — accompanied by a photo of her standing behind the podium.
Yes, that’s right. He compared the press secretary of The United States to a guy in drag at his first drag ball. Of course, this is the same racist moron who made the Toy’s ‘R Us joke about AG Sessions’ granddaughter who happened to be Asian.
Where were the feminists? Where were the protests? Where were the pink pussy hats? Why does he still have a job at The Daily Beast? Crickets.
I’m still waiting on Hilary Clinton’s statement or tweet in support of Huckabee Sanders. After all, isn’t she the voice and supporter of all things feminism? Maybe the statement was accidentally deleted.
I wrote an article wondering where all the media love was for Kellyanne Conway considering she shattered the glass ceiling by being the first woman to ever manage a winning presidential campaign. She was also met with media hostility.
Conway was on “Fox & Friends” and shared her support of Huckabee Sanders, stating that “The irony of modern feminism is that they look right past sexist comments said about conservative women, definitely pro-life women like Sarah and me.”
I don’t agree with most anything that comes out of Nancy Pelosi’s mouth, yet when she was voted in as the first woman Speaker of the House — I applauded her and her accomplishment. It was a huge deal.
Don’t you find it interesting that the only Presidents to appoint women in this position was a conservative in Bush and a President who would be considered a conservative today — Bill Clinton? No appointments from the Nobel Peace Prize winner and woman’s rights advocate, Obama? In 8 years? I guess Linda Sarsour wasn’t available?
Woman march in the streets to protest the fact that they don’t have the same rights as men yet they ignore Sharia Law, FGM and making sure that women — all women regardless of political affiliation — have a voice.
Until NOW or these protests organized by a terrorist sympathizer, Linda Sarsour, include all women — their mission will be ignored and nullified.
From Kellyanne Conway to U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley — and now Sarah Huckabee Sanders – if you’re not a progressive, left-wing, pro-abortion woman — you’re invisible.
For conservative women who break the glass ceiling for amazing political accomplishments — it’s a shame that glass is a one-way mirror.
