Sherrod_Brown_USCB_photographThe liberal culture of flopping to the floor and demanding Mommy’s hugs at the slightest provocation has found a new target for its temper tantrums…

…that horrible sexist male chauvinist, Barack Obama.

During a dispute with fellow Democrat and Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren over a trade bill, Obama remarked, “The truth of the matter is that Elizabeth is, you know, a politician like everybody else.”

That informal approach sent Ohio Democrat Senator Sherrod Brown into an MSNBC-worthy snit.

“I think the president was disrespectful to her…I think referring to her as first-name when he might not have done that for a male senator,” wailed Brown.

As a former senator himself, Obama has often referred to members of that chamber by their first name.

Among them…male senator Sherrod Brown.

“(W)e announced the work that we’ve done, in conjunction with Sherrod, to make sure that we’re filing a new World Trade Organization case challenging China’s illegal trade and subsidies in autos and auto parts,” Obama said in a 2012 AFL-CIO convention address in Ohio.

But as usual, reality is not enough to placate rabid leftists trained to be offended by everything.

Brown continued to react to the difference over the issue by equating it with raw bigotry, as he has been trained to do.

“I think that the president has made this more personal than he needed to,” claimed Brown over the trade bill that has never become personal.

Obama is hardly anti-Warren. In fact, Warren gained fame as Obama’s nominee to head a consumer advocacy board.

But liberal grievance culture preaches that any difference of opinion with a liberal is, in fact, actual evil.

Rather than discuss the issue at hand, Brown is following the liberal playbook Obama helped write by demanding that Obama be silenced.

But Obama is fighting back, something he would claim is sexist if it were anyone else.

The White House has demanded Brown apologize for doing what they have done to anyone who questions the White House by assigning “hate” to a difference of opinion.

“There are a number of instances where the President has used the first name of the senator to reference them in public, both men and women, including multiple instances in which he’s referred to Sherrod Brown as Sherrod in public setting,” said White House press secretary Josh Earnest.

“I believe that Sen. Brown, given the opportunity to consider his remarks, will then offer up an apology because he’s a stand-up guy,” Earnest said.

Brown refuses to deviate from Obama’s accuse-them-of-being-bigots strategy by apologizing to Obama.

“Sen. Brown believes that this debate shouldn’t be personal, but about getting best possible deal for American workers and American manufacturers,” said Brown’s office.
