CNN's Dana Bash Reveals Male Senators Have Creepily Discussed Her Weight Too

Posted: Updated:

CNN's Dana Bash revealed on Thursday that she has been on the receiving end of some pretty gross comments from male senators during her career as a congressional reporter.

Bash was talking with Brooke Baldwin about Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand's eye-opening disclosure that male colleagues of hers had openly and lewdly discussed her weight on repeated occasions.

Bash agreed with Gillibrand's statement that only older men said these kinds of things, but she was very clear that they occurred.

"After I had my son three years ago, I got some comments that would blow you away from male senators...talking about getting my figure back and things like that," she said.
