RNC Chairwoman Blasts Michelle Obama Over “All men, All white” Statement

POLITICS

The chairwoman of the Republican National Committee fired back at Michelle Obama on her Twitter account this morning, just days after the former First Lady told a crowd that the Republican Party was dominated exclusively by white men.

“Unfortunate Michelle would disregard the contributions of conservative women and people of all backgrounds with one sweeping, false accusation,” chairwoman Ronna McDaniel tweeted, referring to the statements made by Mrs. Obama at the Pennsylvania Conference for Women earlier this week.

“What you can see is this real dichotomy—on one side of the room, it’s a feeling of color, on the other side of the room, it’s literally gray and white. Literally, that’s the color palette on one side of the room” Michelle Obama told the crowd in Pennsylvania, recalling her visit to Congress for a State of the Union address. “On the other side of the room, there are yellows and blues and whites and greens. Physically, there’s a difference in color, in the tone. … Because one side—all men, all white. On the other side – some women, some people of color.” She also told TV producer Shonda Rhimes “I looked at that and thought, ‘No wonder we struggle. No wonder people don’t trust politics. We’re not even noticing what these rooms look like.’”

Of course, Mrs. Obama could not be more wrong, and luckily the Republican Chairwoman was quick to address that fact. Shortly after her tweet about the contributions of conservative women, McDaniel posted about Elise Stefanik, the youngest woman ever elected to Congress. Stefanik, a Republican who represents the 21st District of New York, was the target of attacks by some Democrat lawmakers who labeled her a “child” because of her young age.

“Democrats love to call themselves ‘feminists’ but the second a woman doesn’t fall in line with their liberal ideology, she’s attacked” McDaniel tweeted. This also brings to mind Kellyanne Conway and current White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, both of whom were even targets of vicious leftist slander.
