Former Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown and current US Ambassador to New Zealand & Samoa is under investigation by the State Department for … well, I’ll let Scott tell you:
Brown said the official complaints related to comments he had made at a party in the Samoan capital, Apia, where he told attendees they looked “beautiful” and could make hundreds of dollars working in the hospitality industry in the US. Brown and Huff said they had “no idea” the comments would be regarded as offensive.
THIS IS SCOTT BROWN GIVING SCOTT BROWN’S DEFENSE, and it’s terrible. Imagine the attendees’ version of events?
This isn’t the first accusation of inappropriate conduct against Brown – last year, Fox News host Andrea Tantaros accused Brown of sexually harassing her. UPDATE: Brown was also accused of sexual harassment by a 1998 campaign worker in 1998 (thanks to @bratknits for pointing it out). Strangely, none of today’s media coverage of the Samoa incident mentions the first two accusations.
According to Brown, the problem with the people of Samoa (and apparently Fox News hosts) is that they’re way too politically correct:
“I was told by my people that you’re not Scott Brown from New Hampshire any more, you’re an ambassador, and you have to be culturally aware of different cultures and sensitivities,” Brown said. “We are in a different culture: even though we all speak English, sometimes when we say one thing it means the complete different thing.”
In Scott Brown’s mind, if he was at UNH and told some students they were hot and could pick up a ton of tips showing leg to old men at hotel bars on the Vineyard, that would be completely acceptable.
From constantly calling Elizabeth Warren “Pocahontas” to endorsing Donald Trump to repeatedly trying to sell pyramid schemes and scam “medicine” to his supporters, Scott Brown has done everything in his power to show us that the one big election he won was a total fluke and he’s done nothing but throw away all the good will it earned him.
