Excuse me?

What part of Ms Foroohar, other than her name and genetics I presume, is Iranian? Upbringing? Education? She is not an Iranian product or have I missed something?

Bill Maher didn't announce her name very clearly at all!

I had watched some clips from this before - because I love Chris Matthews - but I had no idea this lady was Iranian. Kudos to her! Barikalla. And Bill Maher: Please pronounce and say her name: Rana Foroohar!!

Bullying: I love how she engages and doesn't just wait her turn! That guy next to her was being such a bully: "What will you do?" And she slammed it - and explained exactly what she would do! Bullies always throw the "what will you do?" line - often to women. It's bullish and a manipulative line: "what will you do?" as if there's no way there could possibly be a solution to the question at hand. They just block it with that line: "What would you do?"  "Don't you understand this problem is as complicated as the moon landing? I guess not... little lady... tell me, what would you do?" That's esentially "what will you do?" means when a man asks it of a woman. A male rarely asks that question  of another male guest.  Luckily,  Ms. Foroohar didn't let him get away with it. Without huffing or puffing, she simply let him know exactly what she would do! And a great answer, too! Grand job!

Thanks for the post mehrdadm!

love her

by nozarmahallati on

Classy looking, articulate, great voice, smart and making a difference by wriiting great articles ina widely read magazine.

Iranian women ROCK when given the opportunity.

Lets imagine her in a good old Islamic nation like Iran or Saudi Arabia....what do you think she'd be doing there and then?
