Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) on Thursday slammed Vice President Pence for having said he would not dine alone with women, calling it outrageous.
In a brief interview with MSNBC, the 2020 presidential candidate was asked what she thought about Pence.
I disagree with him when he suggests its not possible to have meetings with women alone by himself, she said. I think thats ridiculous the idea that you would deny a professional woman the opportunity to have a meeting with the vice president of the United States is outrageous.
Harris was referring to comments Pence made to The Hill in 2002, in which he said he never eats alone with a woman other than his wife. The comments were later resurfaced by The Washington Post in 2017, sparking a furor.
Alyssa Farah, Pences press secretary, quickly responding to Harris in a post on Twitter, knocking her for repeating this false claim.
"Hes elevated women to positions of leadership throughout his career & relies on their advice & counsel, Farah wrote. Get your facts straight.
Harriss comments regarding Pence were prompted by MSNBC host Peter Alexander asking for her take on fellow 2020 presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass) saying Pence is not an honorable person.
I disagree with most of what the vice president stands for, when he makes decisions about our LGBTQ community in a way that doesnt understand that they should be entitled to full equality and all rights under the law as any other American, Harris said in response.
Pence, a devout and outspoke believer in the Christian faith, previously opposed same-sex marriage and is not viewed as an advocate for LGBTQ rights.
I disagree with him when he suggests its not possible to have meetings with women alone by himself,
Not with two bit sluts like you and other democrat females.
This clown slept her way to her job by being Wilie Brown’s arm candy.
The lack of self-awareness in this day & age is astounding.
“To be a fly on the wall when Kamala had her first meeting with the married Willie Brown.”
Well, Princess Kamala was in Willie’s fly.
One on one is so provincial. She probably prefers three or more men at a time.
Very well said.
Gee, I didn’t have any problems with 3 recent “exams” by an exceptionally HOT colo-rectal surgeonette. And no one else in he room.
What's the Cherokee phrase for "you'e got a lot of nerve"?
On the military academy where I’ve worked since ‘88 it has ALWAYS been forbidden for any staff to council or engage in any closed door official or unofficial activity one on one with any female. Even if the staff is female and the subject is male. Even counselling for evaluations between superiors and subordinates.
I think thats ridiculous the idea that you would deny a professional woman the opportunity to have a meeting with the vice president of the United States is outrageous.
He's not denying a professional woman the opportunity to meet him...(the twisting)
he's deny a professional woman the the opportunity to meet him alone. (the turning)
I think she would be a nightmare but no one is going to stop her from running b/c of the NBC angle.
No politician should meet alone with anyone in this day and age. Always have someone around imo.
Apparently Harris doesn’t like men she can’t blackmail with lies and innuendo. Too bad slut.
Kamala Harris, a certified whore, complaining about a man with standards and values he chooses to uphold... priceless... which is more than can be said for her. Pence’s high standard of accountability is the opposite of that held by the low senator from California.
This “Me-too” proofs Pence, given his position as a Christian lightning rod. Many ministers do the same as a matter of prudence and remaining transparently scandal free. This doesn’t mean every single man in every single situation has to follow that rule. But in many situations it is wise.
Absolutely, and it boggles the mind that someone like Harris would try to belittle VP Pence on this issue.
Women in ministry often follow an analogous rule.
Spiritually, since Pence has his hands in a ministry related to sexual trouble, it’s smart. It closes off an avenue that Satan might take. He should calmly ignore the catcalls of those who don’t understand because they can’t understand.
