Default White House press secretary Sarah Sanders body-shamed by LA Times columnist

Another example of the conservative war on women.

Wait, what? Ya mean it was a lib who fat-shamed a woman? Well then it's obviously ok then.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders body-shamed by LA Times columnist | Fox News

Quote:
Los Angeles Times political columnist David Horsey body-shamed White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders in his latest anti-Trump hit piece, describing her as a “chunky soccer mom.”

Horsey originally wrote Wednesday that Sanders “does not look like the kind of woman” that President Donald Trump would chose for the high-profile role, assuming he would prefer “sleek beauties with long legs and stiletto heels” who could pass for “arm candy” in addition to serving as the White House’s top spokesperson.

The Times’ two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist and columnist went on to mention that first daughter Ivanka Trump and first lady Melania Trump are closer to the “Barbie dolls in short, tight skirts” that he envisions Trump preferring at the press briefing podium on a regular basis.


“By comparison, Sanders looks more like a slightly chunky soccer mom who organizes snacks for the kids’ games,” Horsey wrote. “Rather than the fake eyelashes and formal dresses she puts on for news briefings, Sanders seems as if she’d be more comfortable in sweats and running shoes.”

That wasn't nice.

He apologized.

Quote:
"I want to apologize to Times readers — and to Sarah Huckabee Sanders — for a description that was insensitive and failed to meet the standards of our newspaper," Horsey's statement reads.

"It also failed to meet the expectations I have for myself. It surely won't be my last mistake, but this particular error will be scrupulously avoided in my future commentaries. I've removed the offending description."

one can only be body shamed if they give that power to another by giving a rats ass what they think.
this whole body shaming thing is made possible because we stopped teaching “sticks and stones...etc...”

Our society has become so consumed with physical attributes, they seemed to have forgotten the 'skin deep' phrase.

Ye of perfection of both natural skin and brain, step forward.
