Senator Kelly Loeffler of Georgia is in one of two crucial Senate race runoffs in that state, and today she tweeted the following:
I’ve lived the American dream. I went from the farm to the Fortune 500.
I want Georgians to have the same freedom & opportunities I had. And it won’t be possible if we go down the road to socialism.

CNN’s climate correspondent Bill Weir took a short break from the global warming alarmism in order to provide this commentary about Loeffler’s background:
Good news, Georgia!
If you live on a farm, you now qualify to marry the Chairman of the New York Stock Exchange! https://t.co/dLXFantplB

Yeesh! Imagine the journo meltdown if a conservative commentator/journalist said something similar about a liberal female politician.
You should delete this and apologize. Rather gross.

CNN and TikTok users seem hellbent on handing the Senate over to the GOP, which is odd to me as they don't seem to be political allies.

I think I speak on behalf of rural conservatives everywhere when I literally beg of you to maintain this line of reasoning in the Georgia senate races.

THIS. Is CNN.
Trying to imagine the pile on if a conservative commentator was this flippant about the (far less flattering) romantic escapades behind Kamala Harris' political ascent. https://t.co/Aeay2o08l7

If you are going to dump on Loeffler (who was already a successful professional when she got married) for benefiting from her husband's career, you may want to look at Kamala Harris' relationship with Willie Brown. Or are only Republican women fair game? https://t.co/eUEGWPVfeE

The latter. Definitely the latter.

Sorry, Bill. Shoveling manure for CNN doesn't qualify you as living on a farm.

Bill, come on man. This is a really gross statement.

Are you serious with this take? Are you actually suggesting that her success just came from marriage? Because it sounds like you should read a bit more.

Good news, Bill! You work for a network that entertained a Malaysian airliner being sucked into a black hole.
