Cosmo Mag Called Out for Dems-Only List of Women Who Could Be President
Cosmopolitan magazine published an article on women who could be the first female president. The problem? Out of all the women mentioned in the magazine, not one was a conservative.
Writer Rebecca Nelson highlighted seven women who are supposedly “generating 2020 buzz": Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), Tammy Duckworth (D-IL), Kamala Harris (D-CA) and Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), Facebook executive Sheryl Sandberg and Oprah Winfrey.
"Unlike past elections, where one woman competed in the primaries against a gaggle of men, this time, there’s a slew of eminently qualified women waiting to run," Nelson wrote.
Critics were quick to point out that Nelson neglected to mention strong conservative women like Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME), U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and former technology executive and 2016 presidential candidate Carly Fiorina.
On "Outnumbered" today, Mike Huckabee said many of the writers and editors at Cosmopolitan live in a liberal "bubble," and they're out of touch with everyday Americans.
"They still are confused as to how Donald Trump won," Huckabee said. "They haven't gotten over that yet, because they're disconnected from a whole bunch of America."
Trish Regan said they should have at least "thrown a bone" to conservatives by including one non-liberal in the list.
"I think that many members of the media have one view of the world, and they don't even want to entertain the other views," Regan said. "They're not even going to entertain the idea that a Republican [woman] could possibly win after Donald Trump."
