“I think she’s a c—,” Alyssa Mastromonaco told the “Pod Save America” podcast earlier this month, after Sinema refused to side with other Democrats regarding the filibuster. “That’s what I have to say.”
Mastromonaco chose a fairly large platform for her profanity-laced remarks: Volgens Chartable, the podcast has enormous reach, and is the seventh-highest news program on Apple Podcasts.
The comments came in a segment on “notably bad punditry.” Mastromonaco was asked to weigh in on a Washington Post article titled “How Kyrsten Sinema defended the filibuster – and bipartisanship.”
WAARSKUWING: GRAPHIC LANGUAGE
Spesifiek, there was a quote from the piece, “Sinema also exhibited passion about something that doesn’t usually elicit such emotions in politics these days: bipartisanship and moderation.”
“You guys, I have real issues with her,” Mastromonaco said. “They are many-fold.”
She singled out a speech Sinema gave on the Senate floor.
“She talks about the ‘disease of division,’” Mastromonaco said about the senator. “She gave the speech as Joe Biden was on [syne] way up to the Hill. So anyway, it’s the s—tiest, grossest, most disrespectful thing she could’ve done. I think she’s a c—. That’s what I have to say.”
The hosts, also ex-Obama staffers, laughed in response, before one asked, “Do we have to beep that?”
“Geen, because I’m a woman,” Mastromonaco replied. “Ek is 'n vrou, OK?”
Then she continued, “It was so many layers of a—holeness, like you know that she played a combative video game before she went down to the Senate floor, and was like, ‘You are a maverick. You are a maverick!’ And b—-, you’re not a maverick. OK? Geen. You’re trash.”
The conversation then moved to the late Sen. John McCain, also of Arizona, who pundits often referred to as a maverick in the Senate.
