Democrats frequently like to style themselves as defenders of women.
But many have gone out of their way to attack and defame the women who have featured prominently in the Trump administration.
President Donald Trump has put a lot of women in positions of power in his administration and perhaps no one has been closer or more of a stalwart than his White House counselor, Kellyanne Conway.
Of course, that has earned her the ire of Democrats.
But former Democratic political candidate Pam Keith went after her in a disgusting tweet that mocked her looks.
So @pamkeith of Florida posts and deleted this snarky disgusting post. Shame on you. R/T and let everyone know who she really is and what she really things. #rude #slam #snarky #democrat #pamkeith. pic.twitter.com/hDUPJQPiWT

“Can you believe Kellyanne is 53 today? I turned 51 in Nov. And I’m not even wearing a drop of makeup,” Keith tweeted, comparing herself to Conway, and trying to age shame her.
Initially, some of her followers then posted pictures of themselves compared to Conway, also mocking her looks.
But then the backlash began.
Your insides make you far uglier than anything else. How 'feminist' of you to criticize another woman's looks because you hate her.

Can you believe Pam Keith turned 51 in November?
I turned 41 in February. And I’ve never once felt the need to act like a vindictive adolescent girl, shaming others for their physical appearance in order to feel better about myself. pic.twitter.com/ANnd26RbeU

What is wrong with you people ?! You shame a woman for her looks? You compare your looks with hers? All because she disagrees with you on politics. Even playground bullies won’t go this low. SHAME ON YOU.

So weird of Pam Keith to do this, since just a year ago, she was insisting that female politicians be talked about only in terms of their policies, leadership and ideas. I wonder when she gave up on that? pic.twitter.com/aPHLXa22q9

Keith later appears to have deleted the tweet.
It’s not hard to see why Keith lost her efforts to win Democratic primaries for both Congress and Senate in Florida. This comment was not an unusual one for her as she frequently posts nasty comments about President Donald Trump and other Republicans.
From Fox News:
Missy Crane, a writer for conservative pundit Wayne Dupree’s website, wrote that she could argue “Keith is one of the most vulgar, unprofessional Democrat women” and the attack on Conway took her “usual disgusting behavior to new lows.”
“She decided it’d be a great idea to compare herself to Conway in one of the most desperate narcissistic tweets ever,” Crane wrote. “It felt like a poorly written scene from the geriatric ‘Mean Girls’ sequel.”
