This is how Peggy Noonan got owned when she insulted Congressional women showing their solidarity


Former Reagan speechwriter Peggy Noonan humiliated herself on Twitter Tuesday night during the State of the Union by mocking what female House Democrats were wearing, taking particular aim at Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.).

In a show of unity during the speech, Democratic congresswomen wore white attire to honor the women’s suffrage movement 100 years after women gained the right to vote. The visual was powerful, especially since a record number of women are serving in Congress.

“Wearing suffragette white is a respectful message of solidarity with women across the country, and a declaration that we will not go back on our hard-earned rights,” Rep. Lois Frankel (D-Fla.) told CNN.

Apparently, Noonan did not feel the same way about women’s rights because she criticized their attire on Twitter by comparing it to straitjackets, a word she couldn’t even use correctly. She also attacked Ocasio-Cortez for not smiling during President Donald Trump’s speech.

As we all know, there’s a special place in hell for women who don’t support other women, and twitter users gave her hell for such an insulting attack.

As for Ocasio-Cortez, she swiftly fired back at Noonan by pointing out Trump’s speech was not impressive.

Noonan should be ashamed of herself. Without the women’s movement she would not have the right to vote and she certainly would not have been a presidential speechwriter or a columnist for the Wall Street Journal. She should have been respectful and supportive of all the Democratic women who beautifully and gracefully wore white to make a powerful statement in solidarity with women everywhere. Instead, she betrayed women and embarrassed herself by joining in on the hateful anti-women sentiment that has taken over her own party.
