CNN's Kirsten Powers Shuts Down Ex-Trump Aide’s Sexist Dismissal Of Kamala Harris
Huffington Post - 8 months
A former aide to President Donald Trump got schooled live on CNN after his sexist dismissal of Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.). Jason Miller, now one of Trump’s in-house surrogates at the network, accused Harris of “hysteria” for her dogged line of questioning during Tuesday’s testimony from Attorney General Jeff Sessions before the Senate Intelligence Committee. CNN political analyst Kirsten Powers wouldn’t let him get away with it.  “How was Sen. Harris hysterical?” she asked on “Anderson Cooper 360” on Tuesday night. “I don’t really understand that. I mean, she was asking some tough questions.” Miller claimed Harris’ questions amounted to a “completely partisan screed.” POWERS: “But how was that hysterical?”   MILLER: “From my perspective ― my, I would say, objective perspective ― I mean it was ... it didn’t seem like there was any effort to try to get to a real question or get to the bottom of it.” POWERS: “I think she asked a lot of questions, act...

See email I just received from Fox News contributor Kirsten Powers
Fox News - about 4 years
Under ordinary circumstances I would ask a colleague before posting an email but I figured that it might look self serving if I did and Kirsten said yes. So..without asking her….I am posting below the email I received from her that she did not send to get attention but to get help for others. The content of the email says a whole lot about Kirsten….and you may not have known what she does when she is not on TV. The email was sent to a broad distribution of people. Makes me proud to have Kirsten a colleague. Read: —- Hi — As I’m sure everyone has noticed…it is VERY cold in DC. Now just imagine if you were outside most of the day and night with no way to get warm. This is the plight of many of DC’s homeless. I have been working with a few homeless shelters and they are DESPERATE for coats for the homeless. They additionally need gloves and hats. If you have anything that you are not using and would like to donate them, you can give them to me and I’ll get them to the shelters...

Wendy Davis and the Pete Wilson Factor
Huffington Post - about 4 years
The past couple of weeks have been challenging for Texas State Senator Wendy Davis's campaign to become the next Governor of Texas. Wayne Slater's Dallas Morning News article about Davis's life story, particularly the fact that her children stayed with her husband in Texas while she attended Harvard Law School, has triggered a series of attacks on Davis's character by conservatives, many of which are of a sexist and vulgar nature. As Kirsten Powers pointed out in The Daily Beast: Since news broke in the Dallas Morning News that the Texas gubernatorial candidate had support from her then-husband while she attended Harvard Law School, conservatives have been apoplectic. The right has been heaping scorn upon Davis because she and her husband decided that their children should stay in Texas with him while she studied in Boston...For crying out loud, she didn't leave her children on the side of the road. She left them to live with their father. It's fair to criticize Davis for her mislead...

    Powers opposed the Iraq war and supports the right of countries to choose their own governments free of outside influence.

Powers briefly dated former Congressman Anthony Weiner in 2002, and remained his close friend after their romantic relationship ended. After initially defending him when the story of Weiner's sexting scandal surfaced in May 2011, Powers later condemned his conduct and called for his resignation from Congress.
