men ask nepotism questions regarding Luke Russert (in response to his ageist question to Pelosi) [View all]

In reaction to today’s presser, Twitter lit up with offended women, among them noted Democratic Strategist and pundit Hilary Rosen. “Note to Luke Russert: Mitch McConnell is 70, Harry Reid is 73. Oh and Bob Schieffer is 75. Think they should step aside? #NewGuysRule?” she asked on Twitter.

The men, meanwhile, lobbed nepotism charges, asking, “Luke Russert was qualified for this job just out of college? Or did he have Daddy help him get this job? Also known as NEPOTISM. Step aside Luke for someone who can actually earn your job.” A female watcher added, “OMG I can’t believe he asked such a question! LOL I’m glad Nancy shut him down. He’s such an ass.” And another: “Hmmmm…..Maybe you were laughed off and booed because you were offensive? Ponder that Luke.” And another: “They are 70+ but they’re fine leaders. How immature & arrogant you are. Did you learn nothing about respect from your Dad?” And another: Not just Pelosi was insulted! You managed to insult ALL women! #LOSER.”

Back to the males: “Well, Luke, you got your job due to nepotism. I think you should questions regarding legitimacy of employment.” This gentleman added, “BTW did your balls taste, because Nancy served them up to you.”

Watch the C-SPAN clip here. Quasi coming to Luke’s defense, CNN’s Dana Bash remarked on Twitter… “I have never seen Nancy Pelosi play up the pro woman theme as she is doing now. Even joking about the scary sight of all men at the table.”
