SHOCKER: Teachers Union Leaders Devastated that So Many Members Voted Trump.
Apparently one in five members of the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) voted Trump and one in three — an even higher percentage of members of the National Education Association (NEA) — went for the real estate mogul despite what union leaders advocated, according to USA Today.
As a result, union leaders are scrambling to try to figure out why so many of their own members broke for the GOP on Election Day. But at least one union chief is calling her own members “sexist” over it all.
In recent comments, AFT President Randi Weingarten accused her own membership of sexism for refusing to vote for Hillary.
“Frankly I was always concerned about whether the country was ready to have a female president,” Weingarten said. “There was an intensity of hatred that male political figures never get. So I think we’re never really going to understand it.”
Why are people in Democrat-dominated professions so sexist?
