I looked back at the posts from the week after she was out sick, thinking maybe her behavior might have been different? Nope. Same ol' criticism of AOC and Omar, plus lots of pontificating about what the Dems need to do (or else we deserve trump). If she was grieving a miscarriage she sure hid it well.
I do believe it's true she had a miscarriage, but this faux grief (and her attitude of "poor little me will get through this somehow") reeks of manipulation. Her dad's been gone for almost a year; this will give her some fresh new hardship to bring up in every conversation for the next year, despite the fact we know she wasn't interested in having children. Miscarriage is tough, but certainly not a stigma and not something you advertise in the NYT unless you are looking for attention.
