For some reason, my brother insisted I watch this video of Kirsten Gillibrand trying to sound “down with the shtruggle” during her MLK Day appearance at an Al Sharpton event in NYC.
Mark dubbed it cringeworthy — describing it as Kirsten “doing her best Flip Wilson/Reverend LeRoy impersonation.”
That description alone sent a cringe through my body so forceful it prompted a Lupus flare.
I told him there wasn’t enough money in the world to get me to watch it – not even for comedic value.
But Mark wouldn’t take no for an answer. He told me to pay special attention to Al Sharpton’s face. It pretty much says it all.
After several minutes of back and forth, I finally relented.
You’d think I would know better than give in to my brother. After all, he’s the guy who talked me into putting a worm in my mouth when we were kids.
And after watching this cringeworthy video, I think I prefer the worm.
She’s horrible, isn’t she?
In less than two minutes, Kirsten Gillibrand totally redefined cringeworthy.
The only way she could have been worse is if she took a page from Hillary’s campaign book and put on a fake black accent.
Mark was right about one thing. Al Sharpton looks more flummoxed than usual.
After two minutes of talking and pointing (what’s with all the finger pointing?!), did you get even the slightest impression that Kirsten Gillibrand has a powerful message that deserves to be heard?
This speech is such a cliché-ridden pile of pabulum, she makes Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez look like a deep thinker.
All I can glean from that plethora of platitudes is:
“I’m white and a mother. That’s why I should be a part of this fight against racism. And that’s why I’m running for President.”
I think a losing sixth grade debate team could wipe the floor with this vapid lightweight without even breaking a sweat.
I’m telling you. If Kirsten Gillibrand is still in the 2020 race by the time the Iowa Caucus rolls around, I’ll be stunned.
She brings absolutely nothing to the table.
And as I mentioned the other day, Kirsten is a completely untested candidate.
Sure, she won reelection in New York. But when you’re a Democrat, the only way you could lose a Senate race in New York is if you were dead. And even then, you’d probably still win.
Kirsten didn’t even have to campaign in 2018. That’s how easy it is to win as a Democrat in New York State.
She’s never had to compete against fellow Democrats.
And if this hollow, cringeworthy campaign speech is the best she can deliver, Kirsten will get eaten alive.
Mark emailed me this video. He said this one has a clip that’s even more painful.
And he’s right. It’s so cringeworthy, now I need medical attention.
