Former aides said Klobuchar berated them, physically threw objects at them, made them do her personal chores, undermined their advancement to other jobs and created an anxiety-ridden workplace that led to high staff turnover and trouble hiring new talent.
The political world has largely received these stories as sexist criticism, dismaying and infuriating former aides who experienced Klobuchar’s fury firsthand which is why you’ve heard nothing about this in the MSM. Tweets by prominent Democratic strategists Hilary Rosen and Patti Solis Doyle show their ire at Klobuchar’s history being addressed:
I am bothered by hit pieces on @amyklobuchar suggesting that she is tough on staff. I’ve never worked for an “easy” boss whom I respected. Amy is a smart, hardworking and dedcated leader. I am not troubled by former staffers who aren’t.— Hilary Rosen (@hilaryr) February 6, 2019
But the staffers are fighting back. “None of what we are saying has anything to do with Amy being ‘likable’ or ‘emotional’ or whatever other nonsense people throw out at women,” said a former female staffer. “It’s that she is a terrible manager and abusive to her staff. I can’t emphasize enough that there is a big difference between being demanding and being abusive.”
The New York Times also published a new report with additional details on Klobuchar’s conduct, including her tendency to blame her aides for all of her problems, such as stymied political ambitions and the state of her marriage.
Klobuchar has responded to the reports by saying she is tough, not abusive. On Rachel Maddow’s MSNBC show, and in similar comments at a CNN town hall, she said, “I’m going to take the high expectations and bring them out to the country because if we want to really get these things done, some of these things should happen.”
Klobuchar is a victim of sexism cry the usual suspects but the staffers are infuriated at this defense. “We have been evolving in how we think about sexual harassment in the workplace, and we’ve been evolving in how we think about bullying in school, and we should be evolving in how we think about bullying the workplace too,” said another former Klobuchar staffer. “It’s not right and it’s not good for women to excuse bullying and cruelty because the person who’s doing it is a woman. That’s going to set women back.”
Klobuchar faced allegations of mistreating her staff as far back as 2006, when she was the Hennepin County attorney in Minneapolis ― undercutting the Wall Street Journal’s view that the upset aides are just a bunch of snowflake millennials.
“I’m hearing people saying, ‘They just didn’t know how to work in a high-pressure environment,’ or ‘they couldn’t take the high stakes or the tough boss or the tough feedback.’ It’s incredibly insulting. It’s gaslighting,” said one of the former Klobuchar staffers. “It’s the kind of thing people tell people who have been abused. It’s not abuse, you just didn’t live up to the standards, and that’s your fault.”
The question for voters to decide is whether they can support a woman who they feel is ‘Minnesota nice’ when they discover she is anything but.
If you’re a Trump supporter, then I ask for you to help Laura Loomer, a Jewish investigative journalist, who is running for Congress in President Trump’s home district. She’s put a fork into her primary contenders even as they cling to a fleeting hope. Loomer’s running against Pelosi’s best friend and 4 time incumbent, Lois Frankel, with a large war chest. President Trump retweeted a tweet of mine in support of her on 12/28/19 (if you don’t know, she’s been deplatformed for exposing Ilhan Omar) and he’s rented her emails for fundraising for his account twice in the last week, so he’s supporting her without officially endorsing her until the primary field clears out. She’s got big name endorsements from Judge Jeanine, the Limbaugh team, Roger Stone, Brandon Straka, Michelle Malkin and many others because of her willingness to take on corruption. Below are a few videos if you’re not familiar with her.Donations of all sizes add up. (Just ask Bernie Sanders.) https://secure.lauraloomerforcongress.com/jr Donate here
Jewish journalist, Laura Loomer, made her name investigating corrupt politicians such as the Clintons, James Comey, Mad Max, and many others. She was the first reporter to investigate Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib before they were elected. She was deplatformed from Twitter for a post she made stating that Ilhan Omar was anti- Jew and pro Sharia. CAIR (Hamas) lobbied Twitter to remove her. Because a group of Saudi investors own a large chunk of Twitter stock, Loomer was booted from the platform. Facebook and Instagram did the same several months later. Loomer attempted to fight back, but the MSM and RINO’s were to PC to help her out. Michelle Malkin remained in support of her and called out the MSM. Loomer realized if she was going to effect change in this country, she would have to run for Congress to take the swamp head on. She announced a run for Congress last August in President Trump’s home district. https://secure.lauraloomerforcongress.com/jr Donate here
Loomer has filed lawsuits against Big Tech for bias against conservatives, monopolistic behavior through anti-trust, and election interference as they refuse to let her back on social media even as a candidate. Some might say, ‘This doesn’t affect me,’ but I’d say you’re wrong. Another post of mine is about a long term police officer in Florida who got suspended for ‘liking’ a post of his wife’s on Facebook that criticized Omar and Tlaib. Loomer has been suspended from more than just social media for being outspoked. She’s banned from Uber, Uber Eats, Lyft, PayPal, Venmo, GoFundMe, medium and several others. She also had her bank account at Chase Banks temporarily closed down. https://secure.lauraloomerforcongress.com/jr Donate here
On 12/28/19, President Trump retweeted a tweet of mine in support of her. This week he’s renting her emails out for fundraising. We’re hopeful that a full fledged endorsement is coming soon as he’s been taking incremental steps. Judge Jeanine, Michelle Malkin, Brandon Straka, Roger Stone, and the Limbaugh teams have endorsed her because of her relentless pursuit of the truth. If you want to help her, please donate anything you can afford. Small amounts are welcome and add up.
