MSNBC host S.E. Cupp on Wednesday doubted that having more female legislators in Congress would result in any positive changes.
Cupp and the other hosts of The Cycle were discussing President Barack Obama’s dinner with all 20 female senators. Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) had claimed the female legislators could help bring people together to produce a budget deal.
“Wow, she is giving us a lot of credit as women,” Cupp remarked.
“I think it’s silly and sort of a narrow view of politics to suggest this dinner with 20 women senators is going to solve all these problems Klobuchar was laying out and that the problem with Washington is too much penis, essentially. There’s just too much penis in Washington and not enough uterus. I think that’s really silly.”
Cupp noted women were just as capable as men of making bad decisions, citing the reality TV show The Real Housewives of New Jersey.
Cupp’s co-host Krystal Ball said one dinner with female senators obviously wasn’t going to solve all the nation’s problems, but she did think there were “too many penises” in Washington. She said behavioral research had found women tended to be more collaborative than men.
