"Trevor Noah Says Some Candidates Have Policies, Others Have Male Privilege"

"‘I’m Just Going to Wing It’

Monday night’s CNN town halls with five Democratic presidential hopefuls provided great monologue material on Tuesday. The late-night hosts took on statements by Elizabeth Warren, Amy Klobuchar, Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris and Pete Buttigieg.

Trevor Noah said that while “for months now, Warren has been releasing policies faster than Netflix releases documentaries about serial killers” and Harris issued a “powerful threat” to Congress regarding gun control, Buttigieg’s sidestepping questions about actual policies revealed his male privilege.

“You have to admit, running for president as a man is so much more fun because as a woman, you have to bring extra homework. Elizabeth Warren calculated 2 cents on every dollar over 50 million. Kamala is breaking down the statistics on maternal mortality as relates to race and class. But a dude can come and be like, ‘Yeah, I’m just going to wing it.’” — TREVOR NOAH

Have a rec. I never cease to be amazed at how much more difficult it is for women to be taken seriously no matter how accomplished they are.

4. I understand his point, but....

 

I understand his point that he is a man and thus gets that privilege. What I don't like is the dismissal of him being a gay man like that he has not faced or does not face discrimination! As a gay man, he will be subject to horrendous bigotry from the right with likely death threats based on his sexual orientation. So, take a step back and remember that point.
