  1. โ€œIf you can’t explain it simply,ย you don’t understand it well enough.โ€ Albert Einstein

    1. @kilgoring troutless If I was only interested in opinions that agree with mine, then why would I be here in this liberal echo chamber?

    2. @Doug H So you can troll and criticize all you hear but either don’t understand or reject because it doesn’t fit in your world view.

  2. The problem was, she wasn’t trying to define the word ‘woke’. She was trying to redefine the word ‘woke’ to fit her narrative.

    1. Democrats: We follow the science.

      Also Democrats: Men can get pregnant. ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚

    2. Just like dems doing for every other word in the dictionary . Examples ( Women, Transitory , Liberal , Racist , Fascist , Nationalist , Nazi )

    3. โ€‹@Tony-md7dk Tony, where are you? Probably still trying to dig yourself out from under the avalanche

    4. I liked it – when it just meant a passive adjective of
      another adverb to being awake & ready for breakfast!

  3. I woke up this morning and woke was on my mind. Woke was on my mind. Somebody needs to woke the right to what it means.

  4. She was smart enough to know that it was going viral, but dumb enough to never look it up. ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿคฃ

    1. I liked it – when it just meant a passive adjective of
      another adverb to being awake & ready for breakfast!

    2. @Jack N What is the definition of the word then? I believe the definition that she gave on social media is what the current definition is. Is it not?
      If you believe that it means “alert to racial prejudice and discrimination”.
      I think that is what it used to be used for back in the 2010s but it no longer means what you think it does. Slang words such as Woke, definitions change along with the culture. It has never connotation now, not a positive one.

  5. She could’ve said woke is when you wake up in the morning…that would’ve been a better answer then the one she gave.

    1. Reductive, but accurate. Unfortunately, she understood the question, she just didn’t know how best to avoid it.

    1. It’s complicated, but she touches on what the definition is… ‘redo society to create new hierarchies of oppression.’ I would add the word ‘dishonestly’ to the start that statement.

  6. Why did I have this thing in my head all of these years thinking WOKE is the past tense of WAKE silly dumb ole me?.๐Ÿค”

    1. Woke: *_Falsus in uno, falsus in omnibus._* (โ€œFalse in one thing, false in everything.โ€)

  7. Hereโ€™s what she thought it meant but couldnโ€™t say it out loudโ€ฆ

    โ€œWoke is our catch-all pejorative to avoid having to acknowledge even basic tolerance and empathy toward people we consider undesirableโ€

    1. โ€‹@Tony… I have to disagree with you…
      As an Eisenhower Republican turned Independent, the country and the Congress USED to get along, and work together for the good of the Country…
      And then along came Gingrich and the GOP’s Hate & Discontent politics began…
      It has evolved so radically, in large part due to the BBC (boys billionaire club) and their billion dollar buyouts of Republican politicians…
      But the MAGAT’s have taken the GQP to a whole new lower level… and now you even lie about that, and try to convince everyone that you really aren’t lying…
      I often wonder if you are so truly delusional that you actually believe the BS you are spouting…

    2. @Tony Hey there, fool! Which side is trying to *CANCEL* certain books? Next time, *THINK* before you type!

    3. Well, I liked it – when it just meant a passive adjective of
      another adverb to being awake & ready for breakfast!

    4. @Targg The Wise What is a woman? Your mom and all those other people that share physical similarities with your mom but are younger and will never ever talk to you at parties, each and every one of them.

  8. Wow! She was given the opportunity to address a national TV audience about an issue that is important to her, and she completely blew it.

    1. CNN: Random conservative woman can’t define “woke” = big deal
      CNN: Supreme Court Judge can’t define “woman” = who cares
      Keep up the good work CNN.

  9. So, she said her book spends an entire chapter defining ‘woke’ but she can’t define woke. Ignorance must be bliss.

  10. This is sooo hilarious, she’s got on the “I’m smart glasses” and is surrounded by books she’s probably never actually read!!๐Ÿ˜‚

    1. Seriously ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ I was thinking the exact same thing ๐Ÿ˜–๐Ÿ˜–๐Ÿ˜–๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  11. Everyone coming up for election should use this clip, and ask their opponents what it is. They should also remind everyone the true meaning. Learning about something to try not to repeat wrongs isn’t a bad thing.

  12. One telling thing I noticed: Ms Mandel didn’t stutter or stammer ONCE until asked by a Black woman to define woke. She was perfectly coherent and articulate until a black woman caused her to completely short circuit in spectacular fashion.

  13. The funniest part of this will always be I can not define woke but wrote an entire chapter about defining woke, lol.

  14. Wow!!!! Imagine going on national TV to spout a view point and not even having a definition readily available. And who said she had 15 seconds? The host never gave her time limit to define the word. She’s ridiculous
