We join the Dames today on your favorite podcast covering sexism as they enjoy wine in a can. Hold on to your britches because Kelly and Tracy get feisty with each other in this episode, and agree there are just some things they will disagree about until they’re dead.
Congresswoman Tlaib Curses
The Dames begin by talking about the statement Congresswoman Tlaib from Michigan made on Swearing-in Day that caused an uproar. She said, “We are going to impeach the motherfu@#$!.” Kelly argues that it’s sexism – a double standard for women. A man (Trump) has used the same language and gotten away with it. If you can’t beat him, might as well join him, right? Tracy thinks that Talib has tarnished all the achievements that came with her election to office. Get yourself some popcorn; the discussion gets heated and entertaining.
Courage to Run Back at It
Frieda Edgette joins the Dames to discuss Courage to Run, a nonpartisan 5k run/walk based in D.C., and its path for 2019. Courage to Run is growing and plans to use the political “off” year to build up support for women to live healthy and lead effectively. You can listen to the first time we spoke with Frieda here.
Elizabeth Warren and Likeability
Finally, The Button has Kelly and Tracy talking about Elizabeth Warren’s Presidential Run once again; it’s only been a week since she stepped into the presidential election and the lady shit has already hit the f#$% fan. What is the issue surrounding women candidates? If the issue isn’t likeability than is it just sexism and misogyny? Or is there more to it than that?
Just two weeks from the midterm elections and the President has called Stormy Daniels “horseface”. Tracy and Kelly talk about Carly Fiorina’s recent column calling the statement disrespectful but pointing out that women have bigger problems. Then they stop to enjoy some Worthy Cabernet Sauvignon.
In the new segment, “Google News Button,” they talk about Rachel Hundley, a Sonoma, California City Councilwoman who was slut-shamed for her actions as the appointed mayor. Then things get really crazy when they review the recent Business Insider article about the unreal life of Melania Edwards. They don’t appreciate her. At all. Seriously. They kinda hate her. And their very charmed lives are nothing like that bitch’s make-believe fantasy life. (We’re sure she’s actually a lovely person.)
After a few weeks of the emotional rollercoaster dealing with challenges to women’s role in our country’s future, Tracy and Kelly spend this episode enjoying being friends, because science.
Did you know that science says women get actual hormonal benefits from their girlfriends, and that women who swear are more loyal and trustworthy? Friends can even make you less likely to catch a cold.
