People following politics over the last two years have probably heard the “war on women” phrase Democrats use to discredit Republican policies on birth control and abortion. Actress Lisa Kudrow is not one of those people.
On the “Overtime” segment from HBO’s Real Time this past Friday, a viewer-submitted question asked Kudrow if she thought “the Republican war on women is still an important issue to voters.”
After a pause, Kudrow looked uncomfortable and asked, “the Republican war on women?”
Host Bill Maher repeated the question to a look of complete confusion on Kudrow’s face.
“There’s a Republican war on women?” she said. “On which part of being a woman?”
Maher went on to explain that Republican candidates in 2012 suffered some electoral defeats for comments they made on abortion and contraception but that that wasn’t repeated in the 2014 midterms.
“Yeah,” Kudrow replied, still apparently unaware what this whole “war on women” shit is about.
