MSNBC Host Suggests Klobuchar Staff Mistreatment Reports Are Sexist — Says Men Aren’t Called ‘Bossy’

During a roundtable discussion on MSNBC, host Stephanie Ruhle had a debate with contributors Evan Siegfried and Christine Quinn concerning reports accusing 2020 presidential candidate Amy Klobuchar of employee abuse.

As IJR previously reported, Klobuchar is facing criticism for allegedly having a toxic work environment and mistreating her employees. However, Siegfried slammed comparisons to President Donald Trump as justification for Klobuchar’s behavior.

“Whataboutism is the argument being made that minimizes and deflects from the misconduct of others, and I think it’s wrong,” Siegfried said.

The discussion quickly switched to saying that Klobuchar was targeted based on her gender.

“I am so sick and tired of almost every time a woman steps forward to move up in position, whether it’s political or in business or anywhere, she is all of a sudden the meanest, cruelest manager in the world,” Quinn said.

Ruhle also pointed out issues with a woman being called “bossy” but did not give exact examples of a double standard.

“Give me an example of when we called a man bossy,” Ruhle said. “[…] When a woman stands up and is strong and commanding, she’s called bossy. When a man stands up and does the same thing, people say, ‘He’s strong.'”

The presidential candidate has admitted to being tough on staffers but has not admitted to other reports of mistreatment.

She’s a BITCH to the HELP. THAT’S ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT A PERSON.

It has also come out that guidance to new employees has been given indicating that they should tidy up after her, such as in her hotel room. That’s just inappropriate for any politician, no matter which gender.

This completely ignores that the allegations about Klobuchar being “difficult to work for”, a bully, and a “mean girl” (actual quotes) are coming from her former staff.

So is Ms. Ruhle implying that Klobuchar only hired “sexists”? Or is Ms. Ruhle trying to deflect and throw up a smokescreen?
