Skip to comments.Kirsten Gillibrand the "Hottest" Senator, Reid Says (Flashback)
Posted on 12/12/2017 11:23:20 AM PST by SkyPilot
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid raised eyebrows at a New York City fundraiser hosted by Mayor Michael Bloomberg Monday morning when he referred to Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand as the "hottest member," according to CNN.
Gillibrand, who was seated only a few feet away from Reid at Bloomberg's New York townhouse, flushed with embarrassment at the comment, CNN reports.
According to a Politico source, Reid delivered remarks praising New York's senior senator, Chuck Schumer, before turning to Gillibrand and adding that, "many senators are known for many things," and that "we in the Senate refer to Sen. Gillibrand as the hottest member."
Reid spokesman Jim Manley acknowledged that Reid made the comment, but emphasized that the Nevada senator had then gone on to compliment Gillibrand for a variety of non-physical attributes, including her extensive knowledge of securities law. "What can I say, she made The Hilll's 'Most Beautiful' list," Manley said to Politico. "Of course [Reid] also went on to praise her skill and tenacity and described her as an effective member of the New York delegation as well."
"The Leader was saying nice things about the work Senator Gillibrand and Senator Reid have done together over the last year and half, and made a joke referencing to the Hill article from earlier this year," Gillibrand spokesman Matt Cantor said this morning to CNN.
"Senator Gillibrand has the utmost respect for Senator Reid and looks forward to continue working together to repeal [Don't Ask Don't Tell], pass 9/11 health, and create good-paying jobs across the country," Cantor said.

So today President Trump hit back to her attacks upon him in a Tweet, and Sen "Pocahontas" Warren accused Trump of "Slut Shaming" Gillibrand?
This is beyond strange.
And what Reid did was........what? That wasn't sexual harassment in the workplace? Reid was the Senate Majority Leader at the time.
Weird. Just weird. What the heck is going on there inside Washington DC?
There’s a reason why Trump used the term “lightweight” in his Twitter post about her this morning. Apparently she’s got an IQ somewhere around room temperature, from everything I’ve read.
Wouldn’t it be funny if they had gotten together when he was divorced?
(Reid) referred to Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D) of New York as the hottest member of the Senate. Senator Gillibrand, who was there, turned red at this remark, according to Politico, which broke the story.
In January, he was involved in another controversy, when a book about the 2008 presidential campaign quoted him as saying that the US was ready to embrace Barack Obama because he was light-skinned and had no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one.
I’d hit it.
She earned the nickname "Silly Gilly" in New York after years of exposing herself as an air head.
Are those handcuffs on her left shoulder?
I just heard on the news that 58 or so Females in Congress have demanded an investigation in to Trumps Tweet about Gillibrand.
Why do All these Females in Congress think she is a Prostitute??
I believe she spent a quarter of a million of campaign funds on a total makeover years ago!
Is it true Blondes have more fun?
There are 21 if memory serves female senators at the moment.
“Apparently shes got an IQ somewhere around room temperature,”
Degrees F or degrees C ?
I guess the check to weight watchers bounced.
Just the latest Democrat “cackler” ... or yapping poodle if you prefer. Pelosi doesn’t make sense any more; Squaw Gray Beaver is just too loud; and Kamala Harris is both too loud and too obnoxious)
So she decided to over compensate and go after Trump over these ridiculous allegations.
Trump hit back.
Then Warren steps in the middle of it all, and accuses Trump of "slut shaming" her.
I guess when Trump said she would do almost anything for money, and then said she had been "USED" by Bill and Hillary Clinton, it sent Warren over the edge. Trump is living rent free in all of their heads.
Harry Reid is kind of old.
Just remember Rats, when you point your finger at someone, three fingers point right back at you.
Did Crazy Joe grope her?
Yes. I thought she was once a prosecutor or DA, which would make the handcuffs make some sort of sense, but looking at her bio she was just a lawyer before being elected to the House.
