Hahahaha some silly woman thought she could do a high-level job but tv personality Matt Lauer put her straight. He wanted to know if she was going to be able to do the high-level job and take care of her children. He also asked her if she got the job because she’s a fuzzy touchy-feely wooooman, because why else would anyone ever hire a woman for anything, except wet nurse or prostitute.
Today Show host Matt Lauer on Thursday asked General Motors CEO Mary Barra if she felt she could run a company and be a good mother during an interview about the company’s controversial recalls.
“I want to tread lightly here,” Lauer said before launching into a question about why Barra got the CEO job, noting that she is extremely qualified.
“But some people are speculating that you also got this job because as a woman and as a mom because people within General Motors knew this company was in for a very tough time and as a woman and a mom you could present a softer image and softer face for this company as it goes through this horrible episode. Does it make sense or does it make you bristle?” he asked.
“Well it’s absolutely not true,” Barra responded. “I believe I was selected for this job based on my qualifications. We dealt with this issue — when the senior leadership of this company knew about this issue, we dealt with this issue.”
No no, that can’t be right, because no woman could be qualified, she must have landed the job because the guys at GM – which is more of a guy thing, you know – wanted a mommy figure.
Lauer then asked Barra about her children, noting that her kids have said they will hold her “accountable for one job and that is being a mom.”
“Given the pressures of this job at General Motors, can you do both well?” he asked.
“You know, I think I can. I have a great team, we’re on the right path,” Barra replied. “I have a wonderful family, a supportive husband and I’m pretty proud of the way my kids are supporting me in this.”
Then he asked her if she’d had plastic surgery, and what size bra she was wearing, and if she knew how to throw.
