[Ed. – A more fitting photo of Pelosi is the one above, which shows her pouting throughout Trump’s first SOTU address.]
The image Nancy Pelosi added to her Twitter profile last week shows her as the plucky woman at a table full of gray men, standing up and wagging her finger at Donald Trump like a scolding schoolmarm, just before stalking out of the meeting.
She must imagine it portrays her in a good light. It doesn’t, no matter how many progressive women share it triumphantly on social media as a symbol of female empowerment. It’s more a symbol of female entitlement.
It’s an embarrassment to women who want to be judged on their merits, not given special treatment by men through melodrama and flouncing hysterics.
The photograph was taken in the Cabinet Room by a White House photographer Wednesday, during a meeting with Democratic lawmakers on a serious topic which has been lost in all the fangirl, “boss move” eulogizing in the media about Pelosi.
