Politico Plays Plays Softball With Freshman Kansas Rep. Sharice Davids



In a series of interviews with freshman Reps. across the nation . . . Politico took their time posting this one to the Internets because it's kinda cringe-y and certainly an example of otherwise hard-nosed newsies being VERY nice to an elected official.

Here's the prologue to the talk . . .

"Sharice Davids’ story may not sound like the average biography of a lawmaker, but it’s a story millions of Americans know intimately. She’s the oldest of three and was raised by a single mother in the military, the first in her family to go to college, starting at community college and ending with law school at Cornell University. From there, she took on the very male dominated world of MMA fighting. In 2018, in a midterm of historical firsts, she became one of the first two Native American women elected to Congress ever, and the first lesbian to represent her district that she was able to flip from red to blue for the first time in nearly decade."

Take a look at maybe one of the nicest political chats we'll see all year:



You decide . . .

What the actual hell!!??!! Nice job Politico - use a black and white, photo-shopped image to portray the freshman Congresswoman to make her look almost exactly like Sitting Bull. Nice race baiting strategy there.

I think the interviews were supposed to be more personal. You kinda get a feel for how she is outside of publicity, I can see why she got more votes than Yoder. A real person rather than just a politician.

Barf............Puke.........Disgusting..........Full of lies.

First off MMA is mixed gender fighting and yes while mostly men fight in the sport does not mean she broke any barriers by any means. She won a bout in 11/2013 at Harrah's here in KC by submission. In 3/2014 in Wyoming she lost a bout via 3 round decision. Davids was favored to win by 82% and got beat and was the last time she fought. Took one beating to send her home to momma crying. I might add her last opponent went on to gather 4 more wins and is still fighting ranking 483 of 1232 fighters having a career 15 amature and professional bouts as of 3/2019.
So Davids was a 2 and done which regulates to a nothing career in MMA and was never ranked.

Look the lady has never really excelled at anything and how the hell she got elected is still troublesome to many people. Her work experience is a nightmare read that many companies would pass her over for better candidates.
She was elected based on supposedly being a lesbian, a fighter which come on she wasn't and an Indian.

Nothing in her career has made her a worthy candidate for the office she is in. She can't even hold a talk with anyone unless the whole thing is scripted and heavy edited like this fluff piece is.

Easy to see her PR group is still trying to sell her because they know the next election won't be a sweeping win like this last one was. Yes Davids will be a one and done lesbian in the political field much the same as her so called fighting career was.

It's racist all right, brilliant observation, she does look like sitting bull...shit.

I'm also sick of hearing how her mother was a single mom and raised three kids but they also want you to know she served.

They want you to know how sharice started low with community college and worked up.....well of course she did she's an indian and is supported by the GOV. things most of us don't get!

BTW she's done nothing!

I love how the same people that can't stand Davids would probably line up to kneel before Trump, who is easily the most underqualified for his post of any politician in America (or possibly the rest of the world).

She ran a business that failed before she ran for Congress. So we elect someone who isn't even competent enough to run a small business.

The fact she opened an office in Wyandotte County tells me everything I want to know about her. A county with the motto of where's my free stuff? No fan of Yoder, but this so-called raising star of the socialist party is a big hit with the free stuff groups. Where do the people paying the bills stand while she's making a name for herself?

Sitting Bull-shitting and talking with her hands WAY TOO MUCH! said...

Like, um, yeah, like, and, uh, I, I, uh, like, you know?

We hear her "accomplishments" but I think most are not real. What is her actual third district home address, does she maintain a place to live here? Give me her college GPA. Give me her class ranking at Cornell. How many times did she take the Bar exam, did she actually take it or pay someone to do it for her? Give me her record in MMA (apparently 1-1). Tell me about her business acumen (none that succeeded) Give me the facts of what she actually has done. Show me her tax returns from the past six years. I didn't vote for her and never will. So far I have contacted her office twice through email and gotten one response that did not relate to my question or comment. She plays identity politics because she can't stand on her merits.

SHUDUP, already! REALLY, nobody needs to know WHAT WAY YA LIKE TO PLAY TO GET LAID!! said...

We don't see HETERO listed in the bios of sane people. Why do HOMOS have their sexual preference of gay or lesbian listed? Oh, I get it---IDENTITY POLITICS!

Butthurt bitch.

Say something in her favor. She was elected on identity politics and has done fuckall while she's been in office.

Looking forward to hearing your opinion.

I too am a story Americans know intimately. I was born, noticed I had a dick, accepted it as meant to be, and didn't have to worry about my parents saying.. would you like to be girl? Or my peers saying.. no you are not a man, your a freak with that thing, grow some boobs!

Did they ask her "boxers or briefs?" Or would that be too adversarial for Politico?

she got elected by all the new to kansas idoits mainly from KCMO who voted for this crap and ruined KC then they move to KS and JOCO and vote for the same crap.

The racist, misogynist, angry white males checking in are just sad.

Yoder lost by 10. Get over it.

One term wonder. Will be swiftly forgotten. She will accomplish nothing.
