Thursday on MSNBC’s The Last Word, host Joy Reid reacted to Sen. Elizabeth Warren‘s exit from the presidential race by stating that women “had it in their grasp and let it go,” and “should just do differently” by being “the hungriest constituency” and insisting on a woman president even if she isn’t perfect.
“What I would say to women is that you’ve probably been voting for flawed male candidates your whole life,” Reid said. “I always say the hungriest constituency wins, right? Hillary Clinton couldn’t even win a majority of her sisters. And so, the reality is, when women get good and ready to have a woman president, they will insist on it. They won’t care if the person isn’t perfect. They won’t demand that they tell them what moisturizer they use. They will insist on it.
“Women had it in their grasp and let it go, and I think next time, women should just do differently,” she added.
Never mind “flawed.” If Democrats want a female president, they need to nominate a woman who isn’t a terrible human being.
