If you’re still taking Sen. Elizabeth Warren seriously to any degree, this should cure you of that particular ailment.
According to Fox News, Warren has promised that if she’s elected president, then at least half of her cabinet will be filled with women and non-binary people:
Warren, who is currently sitting in third in most national polls behind former Vice President Joe Biden and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, wrote Tuesday in a lengthy post on Medium that she will build “a Cabinet and senior leadership team that reflects the full diversity of America, including having at least 50 [percent] of Cabinet positions filled by women and nonbinary people.”
Warren’s pledge is part of a series of reforms she laid out in order to “rebuild the government swiftly, and make fundamental changes” after President Trump leaves office.
Nevermind filling it with the most qualified people. The only qualifications you need to meet in order to make it into Warren’s inner presidential circle is to be born with a certain set of chromosomes or suffer from a nasty case of gender dysphoria.
What I think may social justice warriors like Warren fails to realize is that this is sexism at its best. She’s essentially ignoring men who may be more qualified for the job simply because they’re men, and will, instead, hand it off to someone simply for their identity.
Instead of having a room full of people who are experts at what they do, you’ll have a room full of people who have little idea of what they’re doing and trust me, it’ll reflect within the country.
This is why I can’t see Warren as a serious candidate. She’s not taking being the leader of the free world very seriously. Instead, she’s treating it as a showcase for her own wokeness.
