• This Liberal Senator Just Accused Obama of Sexism

    There’s a very public civil war raging right now between the Obama administration and several anti-trade liberal Democratic Senators.

    The debate is over the Transpacific Trade Partnership, a trade deal being called Obama’s landmark trade legislation.

    The big beef is between Massachusetts Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren and Obama. For weeks these two have been battling each other over whether the White House should be given fast-track authority in negotiating trade deals. Obama called Warren’s criticism of his deal “absolutely wrong” while Warren bashed Obama for pursing the deal in secrecy.

    But as far as Ohio Democratic Senator Sherrod Brown is concerned, Obama’s criticism went way too far.

    “I think by just calling her ‘another politician,’” Brown says Obama disrespected Warren. “I’m not going to get into more details. I think referring to her as first name, when he might not have done that for a male senator, perhaps? I’ve said enough,” Brown continued, suggesting sexism from Obama.

    “I think the president was disrespectful to her by the way he did that,” Brown told reporters Tuesday. “I think that the president has made this more personal than he needed to.”

    Brown’s comments came just as a majority of Democratic Senators defied Obama and voted to block trade measures from proceeding on the Senate floor.

    President Obama campaign hard for Senator Warren and, for her part, the freshman senator has not called Obama’s criticisms sexist.

    Nevertheless, all this blue-on-blue violence is primetime entertainment.
