Honest to blog, Sen. Amy Klobuchar is announcing her 2020 Goat Rodeo run, and instead of looking at her policies, Tiger Beat on the Potomac (and others) tell us that she’s a bitch:
“MINNEAPOLIS — Sen. Amy Klobuchar is pitching herself for the White House as the common-sense Midwestern answer to President Donald Trump — while former staffers portray her as a brutal boss who mistreated them.
“The run-up to Klobuchar’s expected presidential campaign launch on Sunday has been sidetracked by former aides, speaking anonymously for fear of retribution, who described a toxic office environment including demeaning emails, thrown office supplies and requests for staff to perform personal chores for the senator. It’s a sharp departure from the public brand that Klobuchar has built to get to this moment: a pragmatic, aw-shucks Minnesotan who gets things done and wins her state by landslide margins.”
Well, it’s not “But Her Emails,” but it might be much worse because Americans go for the ol’ “character counts” bit of politics, and no one likes a bitch, amiright?
Anyway, this is going to be the shorthand for her, the media has already branded her. Bank on it: every single piece on her from here on out will mention this “controversy.”
