Hillary Clinton: Feminism's False Prophet

She will do the movement no favors.

|

Barring a miracle, Hillary Clinton will be elected president in less than two weeks. And this will be in no small part because Donald Trump is a foul and strutting misogynist whom a lot of women can't stand.

Still, Clinton's victory will be no victory for feminism. In fact, it would have been far better for the movement if she had lost to a good man rather than won against a bad one.

Ever since the Access Hollywood tapes surfaced, showing the Republican nominee boasting about sexually assaulting women, every time he opens his mouth, a new victim comes forward and Clinton's lead with women widens by several points.

Clinton claimed during the final debate that he demeans and belittles women – and as if to prove her right, Trump called her "what a nasty woman." And a CBS poll earlier in the week suggests that women agree, with seven out of 10 saying that they feel that Trump does not respect them. The same poll gave Clinton a 19-point lead among women. But even worse for Trump, in key swing sates, Clinton's gender gap has widened from 5 to 15 points. Even evangelical women and military wives are utterly disgusted by Trump and flocking to Clinton.

All of this makes Clinton a shoo-in for the Oval Office, which wouldn't be a problem if she were a genuinely good or even decent candidate. But she's not. And brushing her flaws under the rug, whatever the political exigency now, won't be good for the feminist movement in the long run.

One does not have to be a Clinton basher to point out there is something screwy about her whole posture toward women. She now insists that all victims of sexual assault deserve to be taken seriously and chastised Trump for not apologizing to the women he's insulted and allegedly assaulted. But at the Wednesday debate, when asked about her own husband's sexual misdeeds, she pretended like she didn't hear the question. And she herself hasn't been exactly easy on her husband's victims. Indeed, there is no denying that one reason Trump is getting away with his sexual misconduct is because her husband, whom she enabled, got away with his.

Nor did she play fair to get a plea deal for a 42-year-old who raped a 12-year-old girl in 1975. Granted, she took the case only very reluctantly. However, after she did, she resorted to every trick in the book — including suggesting that the girl fantasized about older men — to get her client off the hook. This would be fine if she believed that accused rapists deserve strong due process protections. Or that it is the duty of lawyers to defend their clients in the most aggressive way possible. Or if she at least explained that her position has evolved and she has come to understand that the victims of sexual assault bear a special burden and therefore deserve special protections (debatable though that is).

But she has done none of that and feminists have not pushed her to clarify.

The conundrum for feminists is that if they ask Clinton to reconcile her actions and positions, they risk exposing her hypocrisy and making her vulnerable in the face of an intolerable alternative. But if they don't, they end up undermining their own credibility and effectiveness. They can't even acknowledge that Clinton cannot use the bully pulpit to make sexual assault a big issue of her presidency. Most men would have been able to do more if they chose.

Symbols and icons are important mostly when a movement is still trying to propel itself. But for all of Clinton's talk of breaking the highest glass ceiling in the world, the fact of the matter is that the notion that women are as capable as men of occupying high office is now firmly entrenched in the zeitgeist. A female U.S. president was a question of when not if.

Hence, absent Trump, there would have been no harm if the movement had waited a bit longer for a more worthy female candidate and fully confronted the flaws of the present one. Trump is a walking, talking scandal of a type the country has never seen. But Clinton is no slouch either. The latest WikiLeaks revelations show that her controversial use of a private email server for classified communication as secretary of state was just the tip of the iceberg. The leaks confirm suspicions that her staffers destroyed emails after Congress issued a subpoena for them, something that would have gotten mere mortals criminally indicted for obstruction of justice. And then there are accusations of pay-to-play — that the friends of the Clinton Foundation received preferential treatment from the State Department when applying for government contracts for the post-earthquake reconstruction of Haiti.

It would have been good for feminism if it had taken a pass on Clinton's candidacy in light of all this. Instead, it now gives the impression, in the immortal words of Lena Dunham, that women simply "vote their uterus." It is fashionable these days in lefty circles to insist that identity is not something you are born with, it is something that is imposed on you. To think otherwise is to be guilty of essentialism and confuse category for identity, a cardinal sin.

Yet feminists flocking to Clinton risk giving the impression that they are, like The Nation's Liza Featherstone, for her because electing the "first woman president of the United States" would be "significant." Featherstone is a long-time critic of Clinton's and also acknowledges that, given Clinton's many flaws, it would be good for the movement to criticize her. But others have no such qualms, acting more like "vulgar" feminists — rather than mature ones whose concerns as women are part of a more capacious identity based on a whole range of interests from foreign policy to national security to the economy. *

After the first Clinton-Trump debate, Michelle Vitali mused: "Imagine a woman who showed up unprepared, sniffling like a coke addict and interrupting her opponent 70 times. Let's further imagine that she had five kids by three men, was a repeated adulterer, had multiple bankruptcies, paid zero federal taxes, and rooted for the housing crisis in which many thousands of families lost their homes. Wait… there's more: She has never held any elected office in her life."

It was a brilliant observation that instantly went viral not only because it captured Trump's "yuck" factor but the sexist double standard that working women face in America: namely, that women not only have to be better than men to get to the top but they also have to play by the rules.

But the low bar that Clinton had to cross with Trump as her opponent is a breach of standards in its own right. So feminists should take their victory, but taking joy in it is another matter.

  1. Why Hillary Clinton is Bad News For Feminism Everyone, Everywhere on Earth: New at Reason

    New and improved title. No charge!

    1. A feminist being bad for feminism is the better title and perspective.

      1. Why is she bad for feminism?

        First of all, she is not a female.
        That thing is a psycho hose beast. The devil incarnate only shoots fire out of fire shooting orifices.

        It has no functioning organs that would make it human.

        1. I’m making over $15k a month working part time. I kept hearing other people tell me how much money they can make online so I decided to look into it. Well, it was all true and has totally changed my life.
          Go this web Site and click to Tech tab to start your work… http://www.Trends88.com

  2. Yes Hillary is horrible and her agenda is to institutionalize everyone as either a criminal (predator, rapist) or mentally ill (rape victim, opiate addict). However I can handle the Bolsheviks. It was the Nazis that really scared me.

    1. You forgot to add ‘gun enthusiast’ to Hillary’s list of the mentally ill.

      1. Race mania, hate-based cognition disorder, Trumpagnosia, Trumpalogia, Trumparrhea.

    2. being a rape victim is not a mental illness you jackass.

  3. Wouldn’t would would would would wouldn’t.

    1. ? Which direction are you counting from?

      1. The real question is, when did Crusty become so picky?

  4. ‘…Donald Trump is a foul and strutting misogynist whom a lot of *people* can’t stand….’

    Fixed, but the result is the same.

  5. “And this will be in no small part because Donald Trump is a foul and strutting misogynist”

    Nice, how you got that right in without wasting any time. Bravo!

    1. Saved me the time of bothering with the rest of it.

  6. “Her record is badly tainted”

    Her taint is well recorded, however. Thanks SugarFree.

    1. What people really want is the taint

  7. You lost me at Hillary and taint.

  8. “It’ll soon be all over for Donald Trump”

    I used to hope for a Trump win so that I could witness Hillary cry herself to a fatal dehydration. Now I can add Dalmia to the list. Please, Science, let it be so.

    1. If the polls keep moving in the direction they have been over the last 2 weeks, it will be dead even by election day. That means inevitable landslide I guess. I don’t claim to know much about this stuff.

      Sometimes I just want Hillary to win. Because if the massive amount of corruption that ensues don’t wake the sheeples up and start a revolt, nothing will and we’re fucked anyway.

      1. Trump’s up in Florida in the latest Bloomberg poll. Interesting…

        1. I’m in an early voting state where I already cast my ballot for Trump. Wasn’t the candidate I wanted, but since Gary Johnson imploded in a supernova of ineptitude and I agreed with him on a few important positions, he was the best candidate remaining in the race. I felt good about the ballot when I submitted it, I feel good about it now.

          Today a buddy of mine at work came in to talk to me about the election. He voted Clinton on his ballot because he couldn’t stand Trump. I get why he couldn’t stand Trump…he and his family immigrated here and he was hurt by Trump’s stance on immigration. But he also is a person of integrity and he said he hated himself for voting Clinton as he cast his ballot. Now, he regrets his vote because he realized that he voted for someone who thoroughly despises this country (which my friend loves) and betrayed it repeatedly for money rather than vote for a man he found merely distasteful and it eats at him.

          (cont)

        2. My point is, he’s a good guy and he voted from principles. If he’d given it another day before voting, that vote probably goes to Trump rather than Clinton, because he sees the shit piling up about Clinton too. And I suspect that a lot of people going to the polls during the election, after seeing all the other stuff that Project Veritas and Wikileaks keep releasing on Clinton are going to come to the same conclusion…because I’m betting there are a lot more people out there like my friend than people who ignore Clinton’s crimes. And I think the closer we get to this election, even with early balloting…the worse this election gets for Clinton.

      2. Sadly, the sheeples won’t revolt, because apparently you can’t be guilty of corruption if you have a vagina.

  9. SD; DR

  10. Do not speak of Hillary’s taint.

  11. Why Hillary Clinton is Bad News For Feminism: New at Reason

    Because all women hate each other. They’re like cats.

    They are acting more like “vulgar” feminists[…]

    I don’t believe there’s another modality of feminist, Shikha. Women concerned about the civil rights of other women are called libertarians whereas women who show a propensity for group-think, insularity and bigotry against men are called feminists.

    1. And the former group is like bigfoot, not proven to actually exist.

  12. “It was a brilliant observation that instantly went viral not only because it captured Trump’s “yuck” factor but the sexist double standard that working women face in America: namely, that women not only have to be better than men to get to the top but they also have to play by the rules.”

    It’s a feminist mantra, that *instantly went viral because* it’s a feminist mantra. It did not “go” viral. It never left. Its omnipresence is as pronounced as its inaccuracy.

    Why Are Women Still Not Running for Public Office? http://brook.gs/2bXYJHB via @BrookingsInst

    1. http://press.princeton.edu/titles/10033.html “Brooks’s overall analysis indicates that female candidates do not get penalized disproportionately for various behaviors, nor do they face any double bind regarding femininity and toughness.”

      I would say that feminism should have a better prophet than you, Shikha, but it’s probably impossible to portray it any better without being totally fictional. In that respect, you have done well.

      1. My last 20 years of work experience is that women are almost always treated with kid gloves compared to men. And I’ve seen zero lack of women being promoted compared to men. I fail to see any of that. Must be my privilege filter not letting me see it. Either that or this article is talking bullshit. One of those is true.

        1. Same here. But the agitating won’t stop until the quotas are achieved.

          1. Rhywun: “Same here. But the agitating won’t stop until the quotas are achieved.”

            There won’t be any equlibrium, apart from that of predictable and permanent agitation.

            1. Death ytp wreckers and right-deviationist sabateurs!!!!

          2. Nope, won’t stop even then. Did it stop on universities when women became almost 60% of students? No, still lots of female only scholarships, and none for men. Now they over 50% of each department.

            It never ends. Even when every CEO and senator and judge is a woman and 99% of homeless are still men, they’ll still be driving men out of middle management positions to make room for any woman they can find.

            It’s never about equality. They don’t want to be merely equal. They just want more.

        2. I see the greatest problem arising from inconsistency. Men tend to generally act like men, with all the according trade-offs and reactions. Whereas women tend to adopt male elements in isolation. A simple example of that is trying to imitate male body language. Another is imitating male behavior during meetings, but being unwilling and/or unable to do so outside of meetings. Naturally, they won’t be seen as the same as men, and such arbitrary and dissonant combinations will lead to complications.

          1. What I mostly see these days, and it hasn’t changed too much, is that men tend to get along well with men at work, and women and men tend to get along equally well. But women, if you have enough of them in an organization, there will always be some of them that are cattty with other women. The least provocation will bring out the claws.

            1. Dang, Hyp. Ditto again.

            2. I’ve worked in a field that’s dominated by women for almost a decade, and let me tell you what I’ve learned.

              Men are at the Hospital to make money at a lucrative trade, and most have very few illusions about the profession beyond that.

              Women are at the Hospital to make money at a trade, and form a community.

              This has been true of every job I’ve had at every hospital and health group I’ve been employed at. Not saying it’s necessarily bad or evil, but it’s definitely a thing. I’m pretty sure at this point that women are behind 85% of culture. We’re basically an underground matriarchy where men are figureheads that exist to take blame.

            3. Abso-fucking-lutely. My thinking is feminism was created in order for certain women to order around all other women, and when they reached critical mass, they added everything else.

        3. I have worked with far too many women in the last 30 years who have avoided punishment for bad behaviour in the workplace, or who have been promoted “because vagina.” There most certainly was a time when women were unfairly pigeonholed, but those were The Elder Days back in my mis-spent youth.

          The upside to so many more women having positions of relative power these days is that they’re now forced to confront the conundrum of other women in the workplace getting away with all manner of shit, which the more powerful women have to punish now “because fairness.”

          Salty ham tears ensue. And that’s a good thing.

          1. It is always a joy to see the facial reaction when women realize how scheming other senior/junior women are in the business world.

        4. My wife was much better at earning money and getting promoted than I was.

          And then she stayed home with the kids.

          Blame men?

        5. My wife was much better at earning money and getting promoted than I was.

          And then she stayed home with the kids.

          Blame men?

    2. “the sexist double standard that working women face in America: namely, that women not only have to be better than men to get to the top but they also have to play by the rules.”

      This is pure unadulterated bullshit. It’s pretty much the opposite of the truth. Women are treated more softly in the workplace than men are. Most of the companies I work with, a woman can pretty much get away with anything by crying. Sorry, but that’s the truth. They can also wear open toed shoes and no socks. Are there any men here who can show up at work with no socks? When will men be liberated?

      1. Men are sock puppets.

        1. All of which belong to Tulpa.

      2. The claim that ‘in order to get to the top, women have to be better than men and they also have to play by the rules’ in an article discussing Hillary Clinton is so outrageous that it rises to the level of high comedy. Thanks for the laugh.

    3. Actually, we don’t have to “imagine” what it is like for a woman to show up unprepared and perform badly in debates. All we have to do is remember how women like Vitali treated Sarah Palin.

      1. But she had the wrong kind of vagina! Namely, it had an (R) next to it. Well, that and no one in their right mind really seemed to like the woman. It’s clear that this cult of feminism is merely a puppet to the Progressive movement, unmoored from any semblance of actual purpose, when you examine it for any length of time.

    4. that women not only have to be better than men to get to the top but they also have to play by the rules.”

      When the fuck did Hillary ever get to the top by playing by the rules? That bitch has been breaking laws and flouting ethics her entire adult life, she’s fucked up at every level of government she’s been involved in, and look where it’s gotten her–on the cusp of becoming the most powerful national executive on the planet.

      If anything, her career is a testament to how the elite flout the rule of law to procure and consolidate power for themselves, not how she had to be “better” than the boys to gain position.

      1. Good point.

        Hillary got to the top by marrying the right man. Which, when you reflect on it, is entirely consistent with traditional stereotypes of how women supposedly advance in the world.

  13. “Save us from the scary man, Hillary!”

    Good grief.

  14. I’m bringing Reason’s Handy Guide to Downballot Libertarians and Principled Conservatives with me to the polls. With Hillary in office, the key is to ensure gridlock for the next 4 years until the presidency can be handed down to its rightful heir – Rand Paul. (Or Austin Petersen?)

    Jill Stein approves this message.

    1. So you and AddictionMyth are the same person, which means you’re also shreek. Good change up on the writing style, Butthead.

  15. I don’t know if Hillary is smearing feminists with her taint or if it’s the other way around, I’m just glad I’m not Crusty.

    1. I suspect Hillary is smearing her taint with feminists.

      1. I mean, have you ever tried to pull apart a grilled cheese sandwich? Because that’s what the words “Hillary” and “taint” together evoke in my mind.

  16. Let’s look at the ways Clinton can help the feminist cause:

    -pro-abortion judges on the Supreme Court

    -doubling down on Obama’s crusade for campus inquisitions

    -proving that holding the correct feminist positions can help save a candidacy which would otherwise have sunk under the weight of multiple scandals

    -etc.,

  17. It would *not* be a victory for feminism even if Clinton beat a good male opponent.

    The very fact that this is being looked at as a ‘male/female’ means feminism has lost. If Clinton gets elected *because she’s a woman* – that’s a betrayal of what feminism stood for. And she can’t get elected because she’ll make a good president. Because she won’t. She’ll be W Bush’s 5th term.

    Good opponent, bad opponent, as you point out – her flaws means that a Clinton victory hurts feminism. Long-term it hurts feminism far more than a Trump win could do.

    1. Feminism is already dead, all they’re doing now is deciding who gets to keep the corpse.

      1. Crusty has dibs on that, no doubt…

  18. There have got to be better ways to get clicks.

    1. Write anything about weed or Mexcian ass sex, that works for libertarian clicks.

      Seriously, if they replace every Trump article with one of those, that would be nice. Trump was fun for a while, but it’s getting tiresome.

  19. Anti-Immigration Restrictionism Is for Losers

    Anyone who diagrees with Shikha is a loser. That’s some real professionalism there.

    1. You’re usually more verbose than this, Tony. Correct The Record doesn’t pay by the word anymore?

      1. Also, it’s a dumbass “movement.” What better crutch for a bunch of complainers to claim that you deserve something simply because you have a snatch?

      2. Hillary isn’t a real feminist because her husband fucked other women… very lame.

        1. Hillary isn’t a real feminist because she fucked over the women her husband fucked, T.

          1. Stale hypocritical rightwing trash.

            1. Dull hypocritical leftwing offal.

              1. Seriously Tony. The fact that you are a mindless sheep for all things leftist does not negate the fact that hillary clinton is criminal scum.
                She also did try to destroy those women that her husband was poking because she knew it was bad for her power aspirations. She is a total fraud and you know it.

                At least smart people on the right are willing to admit when we have gone awry. We all know Bush was very bad. We all know that Romney was a joke and that trump is a joke.
                Can one moron on the left admit that your people are sum too?

                And you are a fucking idiot.

            2. Sorry Tony the commie – I still won’t hold my nose and waste my vote on your candidate, Hillary Clinton – the racist warmonger and sworn enemy of individual liberty.

        2. You used to put more effort into constructing your strawmen. This is disappointing.

        3. Most true feminists I know would leave a man as promiscuous as Bill.

          1. A real feminist would say a woman gets to make such decisions freely on her own.

            1. Yes, they would. I was simply stating the choice that most I know would make.

            2. Men on the other hand should have to pay women who leave them a stipend for life.

              /feminist: consistency is overrated.

      3. You just need very few words at 15 cents a word to buy the stuff Tony drinks. He’ll be passed out in vomit on his mum’s basement floor by 4pm.

    2. Tony disapproves? Must be pretty good for a Shikha article

  20. Clinton claimed during the final debate that he demeans and belittles women ? and as if to prove her right, Trump called her “what a nasty woman.”

    It’s not like he was wrong on that point. Just ask her Secret Service detail.

  21. “The conundrum for feminists is that if they ask Clinton to reconcile her actions and positions, they risk exposing her hypocrisy and making her vulnerable in the face of an intolerable alternative.”

    No it isn’t, Shikha. Feminists lost their credibility twenty years ago when they lined up to defend Bill Clinton in the face of allegations of his mistreatment of women. Betty Friedan responded by actually calling Slick Willy the “women’s President” and accusing Republicans of trying to deprive women of “their” President.

    There is no “conundrum.” Feminism has long become an adjunct of the Democratic Party and, like any other political interest group, it trades off political support in exchange for goodies like government-mandated free contraceptives. Principals, not principles, matter.

    There are many reasons to oppose Trump that most of us were aware of months ago. Phony newfound outrage over mistreatment of women on the part of anyone named Clinton, or anyone supporting someone named Clinton, is not one of them.

    1. This. I still remember how hard I laughed–in derision, not humor–at the “journalist” who declared that she would like to give Bill a blowjob to “thank him for keeping abortion legal”. Aside from the sheer absurdity of the premise–that abortion would have been outlawed if not for him–it was the sound of the modern, powerful, independent “I am woman hear me roar” feminist reflexively wanting to pay a man for his protection by servicing him sexually.

      1. it was the sound of the modern, powerful, independent “I am woman hear me roar” feminist reflexively wanting to pay a man for his protection by servicing him sexually.

        You think you’ve made some sort of valid, logical point there? Nope. And it’s the same problem with this whole “takedown” of Hillary – to the extent that modern powerful independent feminists act like modern powerful independent feminists that’s a wonderful thing. And to the extent they don’t? Well, that’s just because they’re victims of false consciousness or the enforced constraints of the patriarchy. See how that works? Anything good I do is to my credit, anything bad I do is all your fault and to your discredit. Heads I win, tails you lose. And it’s like that with absolutely everything the left touches, double standards for all.

  22. Feminism sold it’s soul to protect Bill Clinton.

    Dalmia can chant ‘long live feminism’ all she wants but it is not coming back to life.

  23. Kinda triple-dipped this column… First the preview for it a few days ago, then the actual column in The Week and now reposting another version (edited? I dunno, I’m not going over there to read it) of it here.

  24. I Quit my office-job and now I am getting paid 99 USD hourly. How? I work over internet! My old work was making me miserable, so I was forced to try something different, 2 years after…I can say my life is changed-completely!

    Check it out what i do:===> http://www.works76.COM

  25. “Imagine a woman who showed up unprepared, sniffling like a coke addict and interrupting her opponent 70 times. Let’s further imagine that she had five kids by three men, was a repeated adulterer, had multiple bankruptcies, paid zero federal taxes, and rooted for the housing crisis in which many thousands of families lost their homes. Wait? there’s more: She has never held any elected office in her life.”

    None of which are federal crimes.

    1. Imagine a man was witnessed by his press secretary, secret service guard, driver, and police officers beating his wife on multiple occasions. Would he still be running for president?

      Then why is Hillary?

  26. “Clinton claimed during the final debate that he demeans and belittles women ? and as if to prove her right, Trump called her “what a nasty woman.”

    How can it be “demeaning and belittling” if it’s 100% correct?

    1. Just wait till she gets called ‘bossy’ for sending nonviolent people to prison as president, what an outrage.

  27. I like how the fact that Hillary is a serial unabashed spousal abuser (physical abuse, what’s more) is such a big issue. I mean it’s great to see her made to account for her hypocritical feminist outrage while she exploits double standards to get away with abusing her spouse, something for which I thought there was no excuse.

    Really, I’m so pleased to see how everyone in the media noted, while they were between going after Trump for his pussy grabbing, that Hillary’s is the female equivalent of a wife beater, and so can’t really claim to be any better. Glad to see Reason mentioning it too.

    Seriously though, am I really supposed to believe Hillary doesn’t hate the half the species I belong to as much as Trump disdains women?

  28. BUT SAGGY OLD VAGINA!

    I have to vote for her, she has an extra hole in her genitals!

  29. I told this womyn Hillary supporter that I won’t hold my nose and waste my vote on Hillary Clinton because she is a bigger warmonger than Dick Cheney and supports the racist and un Constitutional war on drugs.

    This womyn said – “even if that is true, it’s about time for a womyn president even if she is a racist warmonger and sworn enemy of individual liberty. There were male presidents who were racist warmongers and sworn enemies of individual liberty – now it’s Her Turn!”

  30. If you like what Obama has done for race relations, you’ll love what Hillary will do for gender relations.

  31. “women not only have to be better than men to get to the top but they also have to play by the rules”

    I’m always amazed at the degree to which women believe this. But it’s pretty much directly proportional to the degree to which women feel, and need, a connection to society. They should read Emerson:

    “Your genuine action will explain itself, and will explain your other genuine actions. Your conformity explains nothing. Act singly, and what you have already done singly will justify you now. … If I can be firm enough to-day to do right, and scorn eyes, I must have done so much right before as to defend me now. Be it how it will, do right now. Always scorn appearances, and you always may.”

    In other words, most women simply care too much about what others think of them, and believe that society gets to permit them or forbid them to do whatever it is that they want. Men, by contrast, say to society, “Well if I do what I want, what are you gonna do about it?” Men always say that. Society often has no answer. And therefore, society doesn’t have any beliefs or expectations that it can get men to behave any other way. And therefore society doesn’t try. Women could have that. But the boldness and don’t-give-a-damn quality that is the foundation of it has to come from within. (Sarah Palin, whatever else can be said of her– and a lot could be– has that quality, and I bet envy of it rots Hillary Clinton’s heart.)

    Trump is admittedly this principle taken to extremes.

    1. So very, very true. Feminism has absolutely pigeon-holed women in ways the 1940’s could never have.

  33. The short version of this article is that women are more interested in what you say than in what you do.

    This is obvious to every man, ever.

    And it is why the feminist movement was doomed.

    If you have any doubts, google up “It wasn’t me” by Shaggy.

  34. Same old, same old. When haven’t feminists compromised their values because “the alternative was worse”? Time to acknowledge they don’t hold those values. If they did, they could never support a Clinton.

    Just admit it. They’re ideologues posing as feminists.

  35. Donald Trump is bloviating buffoon and, arguably, a sleazy con artist who made millions by stiffing contractors, exploiting bankruptcy laws, selling credulous students a worthless “education,” etc. — in the private sector. Hillary Clinton is a corrupt politician who made millions by selling influence with and from her position as a public official, including to foreign governments as the U.S. Secretary of State. These are not remotely comparable. Trump committed fraud. Clinton committed treason.

  36. My, how silly much of this column sounds today…
