That just might be the first time I have seen a politician answer a question. With an answer that relates to the question.
I’ve been pretty cynical about Senator Gillibrand’s candidacy, but DAMN that was good. She could not have answered that better.
I never cared about Kristen Gillibrand, but she answered it perfectly on this question.
She could've silenced them on the "opioid" crisis. When it was the crack epidemic user and dealers were both jailed and sentenced the same. The GOP said it was a matter of personal responsibility. Now that opioids are doing the same thing to white communities now its a public health crisis and users require treatment and not jail sentences.
White Privilege = Opiod Crisis Response Act for opiod epidemic vs Crime Bill of 1994 for crack epidemic.
You know that that questioner went away pissed, right? Because they "Don't see colour!".....
Now that is how you answer a delicate question as this, honest pay almost all the time. I believed majority of the audience were white
This was actually a very impressive answer from her that I didnt expect
OMG!!!! This is the BEST ANSWER to that question that I have ever heard!!!!!
Her teamed has trained her well. Answer was right on!
It is so important that this came from a white candidate. Making this more equal should never take away from the other side!
I liked her the moment I first heard her speak on Rachel Maddow. Very smart lady with her heart in the right place. She won't get the nomination but she definitely stood out to me.
Damn, who's this lady? She just appeared on my radar for not answering a question with another question, and telling the truth from a compassionate point of view.
Damn!!!!! Powerful, she included everyone without down playing thier struggles.
🙏🏽 Amen I hope all Caucasians heard and understand this woman’s answer. But that may be asking a lot.🤷🏽♂️
Senator Gillibrand good job, I applaud your efforts to understanding
This goes to show when someone wants to understand they can actually get it.
The sad thing is she has to explain this.
That was leadership. Thank you Kirsten Gillibrand for addressing her question with knowledge, compassion and respect.
At least say her name in the video. Loved this response. Gillibrand definitely has my attention now
