AUDIO: Kevin Cramer Mocks Attire of Women in Congress

Kevin Cramer

Kevin Cramer called Democratic women U.S. representatives “weird” and suffering from a “disease” for showing up in white clothing to President Donald Trump’s address to Congress yesterday.

“Did you notice how poorly several of them were dressed as well?” Cramer said with a laugh on a syndicated North Dakota radio show today. “It is a syndrome. There is no question, there is a disease associated with the notion that a bunch of women would wear bad-looking white pantsuits in solidarity with Hillary Clinton to celebrate her loss. You cannot get that weird.”

Democratic representatives wore white, a symbolic color of the suffragette movement, to oppose “Republican attempts to roll back women’s progress,” CNN reported.

Cramer’s remarks, first reported by Politico, did not go unnoticed in his state. The state Democratic-NPL Party jumped on the opportunity and immediately used his comments as a fundraising tool.

“Thanks for the fashion tips, Kev!” the email reads. “Kevin Cramer doesn’t represent North Dakota values and he doesn’t represent North Dakotans. …Pitch in $5 and we’ll turn the tables on Kevin Cramer and the NDGOP in 2018.”

As Politico has reported, Cramer has discussed a possible run against Heidi Heitkamp, North Dakota’s Democratic U.S. Senator, in 2018. If that happens, it will be an interesting contest between a woman and a man who criticizes women’s clothing.

  1. Apparently inbred jackass Kevin Cramer has nothing better to do with taxpayers time and money than bother hardworking women. It’s strange Kevin Cramer has no problem with Kellyanne Conway squatting in the oval office though. I wonder why that is?

  2. Doesn’t sound like he’s thinking he’s a fashionista…..sounds like he wasn’t on the Hillary bandwagon….my God….settle down and get excited about things that really matter..seriously!!

  3. I wear white when exercising my constitutional rights in solidarity with Women Who Vote, the originals, the suffragettes.

  4. Now if some rightwing nutcases were wearing white hoods to show their solidarity to their grand wizard Trump, I’m sure Cramer would be ok with that. No “disease” there at all.
