Kamala Harris Rips Pence For Impeding Women’s Opportunities. Female Advisor To Pence Slams Harris To The Mat.
On Thursday, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) made a nasty assertion about Vice President Mike Pence, claiming that he denied professional women meetings and thus impeded their careers. That prompted Alyssah Farah, a senior advisor to Pence, to denounce Harris, snapping on Twitter, “Get your facts straight.”
Interviewed on MSNBC, Harris was asked about former Vice-President Joe Biden’s comment that Pence “a decent guy”:
Harris responded nastily:
I disagree with most of what the vice president stands for, when he makes decisions about our LGBTQ community in a way that doesn’t understand that they should be entitled to full equality and all rights under the law as any other American. I disagree with him when he suggests it’s not possible to have meetings with women alone by himself. I think that’s 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.”
Farah slammed Harris to the mat:
Hi, @SenKamalaHarris: I’m a female Senior Advisor to Mike Pence & am wondering why you are repeating this false claim? He’s elevated women to positions of leadership throughout his career & relies on their advice & counsel. Get your facts straight.
