Senator Claire McCaskill Encourages Men to ‘Just Shut the Hell Up’


In a video that aired last night during The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, Missouri senator Claire McCaskill finally told the men of the Senate what they’ve needed to hear for so long: Shut up already!

“It’s not that women don’t value your thoughts,” Senator McCaskill kindly explains. “It’s just that we don’t value all of them. The world doesn’t need your opinion on everything. For example: what women do with their bodies. Hush.” She then rattles off a whole list of topics men’s opinions are no longer needed on:

 Star Wars
  Shonda Rhimes
  Body-hair removal
  Harry Potter
  Nut allergies
 Star Wars again
  All art in general
  Whether to brine the Thanksgiving turkey
  Ethics in gaming journalism
  This post

Okay, I may have added that last one.
