We already knew that Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand is a vapid bubblehead … but it never hurts to be reminded. Fortunately, she reminded us today with this humdinger of a line at the CAP Ideas Conference:

Wow, Kirsten. That is, like, so deep.
This is also 100% my take on the situation https://t.co/8a2iW79SCX

And I'm sure the seals clapped. Is this the dumbest thing anyone's ever said? Maybe. It's at the very least an honorable mention

@SenGillibrand is redefining stupid one statement at a time.

Not only that, but it’s pretty damn sexist, too:
Apparently gender stereotyping is OK when it's meant to boost women https://t.co/deX00uud3I
