    Why would the Secretary of State have an unmarked map in his office? Because he liked the pretty colors?

    Plus a powerful man dragging women into an inner office to drop the F Bomb and get in their face in an attempt to intimidate them sounds way too much like a Weinstein tactic.

    Definitely. "When you're Secretary of State, you can get away with anything."

    She had nothing to prove to him. He’s a misogynist ******* just like the rest of them.

    BREAKING: Secretary of State Mike Pompeo issued a scathing statement accusing NPR reporter Mary Louise Kelly of lying about their alleged off-the-record deal after she detailed a heated exchange between the two that ended with Pompeo forcing her to pick Ukraine out on a map.

    "It is worth noting that Bangladesh is NOT Ukraine," Pompeo wrote, insinuating that she misidentified the country.

    I’m going to guess that the journalist who has a master’s degree in European Studies from Cambridge knows where Ukraine is. Just a guess, though.

    A phrase coined by an iron worker diversity chair comes to mind: “Male, pale, and stale.”

    Washington Post journalist Aaron Blake wrote a scathing piece accusing Secretary of State Mike Pompeo of "gaslighting" NPR's Mary Louise Kelly after the Trump official insinuated that Kelly, a veteran journalist with a master's degree in European Studies, misidentified Bangladesh as Ukraine on a map.

    "Pompeo could have mentioned a country that is actually near Ukraine, and it still wouldn’t have been believable given Kelly’s background. Mentioning a country in South Asia is patently ridiculous. Indeed, the mere fact that he challenged Kelly on the subject in the first place suggests he doesn’t really know who he was dealing with.”

    He's a misogynist *******.

    The idea that someone born in Germany, who graduated with honors from Harvard, would think that Russia invaded a country they needed to cross effing China to get to proves that Pompeo is the imbecile here.
