Sarah Ferguson . . .

Says that she was the "most persecuted woman ever in the Royal Family".

Anne Boleyn can't even shake her head over that statement.

Jen Psaki Has Certainly Pissed Off Somebody.

Twice, now, I have seen a particularly unflattering picture of Ms. Psaki posted as a thumbnail over a click bait title. The first title made mention of some luxurious home she has (I don't recall the exact adjective)--because I guess living in a nice house makes her a hypocrite for supporting social programs that help the poor. The other click bait title (which I am NOT about to click on) shows up on my Huffpost feed and reads: "Take a look inside Jen Psaki's repulsive life." "Repulsive life" ?! Why don't they just come out and say she has cooties?

The picture chosen to make her look bad shows her with very large breasts and despite the way it is cropped, I suspect she may have been pregnant when it was taken.

Mind you, I'm not saying that pregnant women are unattractive--much less "repulsive"--but a woman carrying all that extra weight may feel ungainly which affects posture and mood and thus result in photos that are less than stellar. And of course, that is the point.

Psaki is attractive, in a polished, professional way--unlike the painted dolls of Fox News. The way she handles herself and her job is also polished and professional, so people gunning for her, her boss and the current administration need to dig out photos that make her look as bad as possible and attack her on whatever grounds--however flimsy--that they can find.

The whole thing is childish, ridiculous and obviously sexist. And, in a way, it highlights just how competent Psaki is. Because if they had anything substantive to work with, they would use it.

About Collimator

I love logic and respect feelings. My aspiration here is to engage in reasoned discourse. I believe that Truth Leaks. It may take the time span of a Grand Canyon to wear away at human deceit and denial, but truth always carves its own path.
