Here’s a great take on our kick ass strong lady journalists these days.
The only good thing coming out of Trump’s daily press briefings AKA campaign rallies, are all the kick ass female journalists getting under his thin skin and getting the appreciation they deserve.

It’s abundantly clear, He’s the Nasty One
In case you missed it, yesterday the President joked about his lifelong passion – trying to fuck supermodels – in the middle of an attempt to blame others for the hundreds of thousands of Americans who may die during the coronavirus. pic.twitter.com/R4Pr4lyJ2t

Governor Kate Brown ain’t Nasty. Snaps up to the Governor of Oregon for helping New York with ventilators. Takes a brave lady to ship ventilators out of the state right now. Also takes a smart one. Think Cuomo will help her when the time comes? Damn straight. Power + Compassion is a winning combination. Thank you for your leadership Gov.Brown.
New York needs more ventilators, and we are answering their call for help.
We'll be sending 140 ventilators to help NY because Oregon is in a better position right now. We must do all that we can to help those on the front lines of this response.

Let’s lift domestic abuse victims whenever possible.

Here’s a hell of a profound observation….
A man I talked to yesterday was upset after a walk outside. He said he no longer found it relaxing and being hypervigilant to see no one was near him was exhausting. His enjoyment was ruined.
I said, "Hey, now you know what it's like to be a woman. ALL THE TIME."
