Major media report that four nice white men are running for president. Pete Buttigieg is on the cover of New York Mag. Beto O’Rourke is on Vanity Fair. Biden and Bernie are the favorites. If you’re excited to hear the big news that Beto reads books, well, Elizabeth Warren has written 11 books, and  Kamala Harris and Kirsten Gillibrand are both published authors. You've heard that Buttigieg speaks Norwegian, but did you hear that Kirsten Gillibrand speaks Mandarin? Tulsi is the only one to challenge American military exploits, so of course she is especially anathema to the media. 

There are still articles on whether or not a woman can win. Of course they can! They won midterms in a great pink wave. Most of the female candidates have won every single race they’ve run in. Male candidates? Not so much.

You had something special to say about all the other women candidates except Tulsi. What's with that? The MSM is really blacking her out. And there are many amazing things about her, as well. #1 she has the courage to speak out against our regime change wars, which is remarkable coming from someone who served in the Iraq War, and who still serves in the National Guard. Speaking against war is very definitely a feminine trait, but I haven't heard any of the other female candidates say one word about it.

I can't help but get the feeling that the media have decided that if they cover Kamala Harris, they've done their bit for feminism, so it's ok to ignore Gabbard.
