Another notable Democrat has unloaded on Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) after she refused to go along with party leaders in the Senate to ditch the filibuster earlier this month in order to pass a voting reform measure she actually supports.

In an interview on “Pod Save America,” Alyssa Mastromonaco, a former high-level aide to then-President Barack Obama, called Sinema a “c**t” and a “b**ch” while unleashing other R-rated remarks in an unfiltered, unchallenged tirade.

“That’s what I have to say,” Mastromonaco said after referring to Sinema with the C-word, Fox News reports, adding:

Mastromonaco chose a fairly large platform for her profanity-laced remarks: According to Chartable, the podcast has enormous reach, and is the seventh-highest news program on Apple Podcasts.

The comments came in a segment on “notably bad punditry.” Mastromonaco was asked to weigh in on a Washington Post article titled “How Kyrsten Sinema defended the filibuster – and bipartisanship.”

Warning: Graphic language

In particular, there was a quote from the Post that said: “Sinema also exhibited passion about something that doesn’t usually elicit such emotions in politics these days: bipartisanship and moderation.”

That set Mastromonaco off.

“You guys, I have real issues with her. They are many-fold,” she said, moving to focus on Sinema’s Senate floor speech where she repeated her earlier opposition to caving on the filibuster, a rule dating back to around 1837 that requires a 60-vote majority to move most legislation in the chamber.

“She talks about the ‘disease of division,’” Mastromonaco said about the Arizona Democrat. “She gave the speech as Joe Biden was on [his] way up to the Hill. So anyway, it’s the s**ttiest, grossest, most disrespectful thing she could’ve done. I think she’s a c**t. That’s what I have to say.”

Both podcast hosts, who are also former Obama administration figures, laughed, with one asking: “Do we have to beep that?”

“No, because I’m a woman,” Mastromonaco replied. “I’m a woman, OK?”

Continuing, she also referred to Sinema as “trash.”

“It was so many layers of a**holeness, like you know that she played a combative video game before she went down to the Senate floor, and was like, ‘You are a maverick. You are a maverick!’ And b**ch, you’re not a maverick. OK? No. You’re trash.”

Fox News adds:

Sinema and fellow moderate Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin, of West Virginia, broke party ranks last week and voted against abolishing the Senate’s filibuster, as well as against an exception to the filibuster that would have allowed Democrats to pass their voting legislation with a simple majority.

“These bills help treat the symptoms of the disease, but they do not fully address the disease itself,” Sinema said at the time. “And while I continue to support these bills, I will not support separate actions that worsen the underlying disease of division affecting our country.”

Others came to Sinema’s defense, including fellow Arizona Democratic Sen. Mark Kelly, who is up for reelection this year, who pushed back on state party members after the censured Sinema.

“Senator Kelly does not support the censure,” a spokesperson for Kelly told the Arizona Republic, Just the News reports.

“While they came to different decisions on this vote, he looks forward to continuing to work with Senator Sinema on Arizona priorities, as they have done during his first year in the Senate to pass critical infrastructure investments that will create good-paying jobs,” the spokesperson added.

Others supported Sinema as well.

Phelim McAleer, an Irish American filmmaker who is currently working on a Hunter Biden biopic, said in his own podcast addressing Mastromonaco’s remarks: “These are the hypocrites who say they are against bullying – whilst being the vilest bullies of all.”

Separately, in a joint statement with his documentarian partner Ann McElhinney, he called on Mastromonaco to apologize to the Arizona moderate.

“So much for being the adults in the room! Isn’t it funny how those who praise ‘civility’ and ‘women’s empowerment’ can be the worst at actually empowering women to make their own decisions? Will Alyssa apologize for her vile comments?” McElhinney said.
