Do Republican Men know how to interact with women? How Sen. Kennedy proved they do not!

In what was supposed to be an easy round of questioning for supreme court nominee Amy Coney Barrett (ACB), Louisiana republican Sen. John N. Kennedy showed us why many get turned off by GOP men sometimes.  In what seems like a joke to him, he asked a super insensitive question.

He clearly thought he was asking a sincere an easy question, when he asked the nominee, who does laundry at her house. Remember ACB is a mother of 7 and a wife, in addition to being a well qualified federal judge.  That was a terribly insensitive question to ask. It leaves us wondering out loud when  these men will learn not to ask or say stupid things when they interact with women. 

Naturally, there was swift backlash or mockery if you will. 


What’s our conclusion: 

GOP men must learn something from Democrat men and start striking the right tone with women, whether those women are conservative or liberal. It will help their politics.
