I have been following journalist Kaitlan Collins on social media for a long while. She came to my attention last year, soon after the Inauguration, when she asked some tough questions of Sean Spicer during a Press Briefing. That stuck with me because, at the time, she was the White House Correspondent for The Daily Caller, a conservative outlet started by Tucker Carlson.
The tough questioning during those briefings clearly caught the attention of CNN, as well, which hired her away last summer. She’s 25 years old, and she’s worked her way up from entertainment reporter on a conservative website to a somewhat seasoned reporter on CNN now.
Anyway, she appeared on Jake Tapper’s program yesterday to talk about Rep. Patrick Meehan, who is in the midst of a sexual harassment scandal after he made romantic overtures to his much younger aide, which he claims she invited him to do by asking him out for ice cream.
Let’s let Kaitlin Collins set the record straight on the relationship between an older male employer and his younger female subordinate, in case it’s not abundantly clear.
A message from @kaitlancollins to grown men: The young women that work for you do not want to date you. They do not want to be your soulmate. They do not want to get ice cream with you. They do not want to be your partner. I shouldn’t have to tell you this. pic.twitter.com/C3WiQGIhAH— The Lead CNN (@TheLeadCNN) January 24, 2018
tl;dr: No one wants to fuck you, old men.
Oh, and on the Andrew McCabe situation, Collins has a few words for Trump defenders there, too:
People who are defending Trump asking McCabe who he voted for by saying they have also asked people who they voted for are hilarious. 1) You aren’t the president 2) It wasn’t about an election you were a candidate in 3) You weren’t asking the acting FBI Director.— Kaitlan Collins (@kaitlancollins) January 24, 2018
