NICE TRY! Susan Rice Blames Racism And Gender Bias For Unmasking Backlash

Former Obama security adviser Susan Rice has a new excuse for the growing furor around her unmasking scandal. You’ll never guess what it is. It’s racism and sexism. That’s the only reason anyone is mad, according to her.

Susan Rice suggests race, gender bias linked to ‘unmasking’ backlash

Susan Rice, the Obama national security adviser under fire over her alleged involvement in the “unmasking” of Trump associates during the 2016 presidential election, suggested in a fresh interview that race and gender might be playing a role in the scrutiny she’s faced.

In an interview with journalist Michael Tomasky for New York Magazine, Rice reportedly questioned the criticism she’s faced dating back to the Benghazi controversy.

“Why me? Why not Jay Carney, for example, who was then our press secretary, who stood up more?” she asked.

Tomasky noted in the piece that Carney “isn’t an African-American woman, of course” and apparently asked Rice whether that is the key factor. Rice, in response, left the door open:

“I don’t know… I do not leap to the simple explanation that it’s only about race and gender. I’m trying to keep my theories to myself until I’m ready to come out with them. It’s not because I don’t have any.”

It’s so typical. She can’t just accept responsibility for her won actions.
