Forget the donkey. Forget the sheep. Forget the inn keeper.

In the school nativity, the one role that nobody – in the history of school plays – wanted to take was 'Narrator No.3'.

Demoted to third place, those unfortunate enough to 'win' the role were forced to stand without name, passing a script among their peers as they gazed into the audience of proud parents snapping away on their disposable cameras at their sons and daughters, who stood proudly at the front of the stage dressed as Mary, Joseph and Angel flippin' Gabriel.

Well, take this feeling of dissapointment and times it by a thousand for US Senator Amy Klobuchar from Minnesota who has just been identified as 'a woman' in a photo with two other senators.

So far, nothing out of the ordinary.

I mean, I too would want to take pictures if I was standing on the podium at Trump's inauguration, just so whenever I felt sad about my own life, I could take out the photo and laugh at that time a walking sweet potato became President of the US.

No name.

No title.

Just 'a woman', despite the fact Klobuchar holds one of the highest political office positions in US history and it's the same profession as McCain and Sanders.

Unsurprisingly, the error didn't go unnoticed.

And they wonder why we marched…
