Yes, that caption is click bait exaggeration, but actually only by a little. Feminists have not said explicitly that Hillary is too mentally and emotionally weak to be president. They have, however, said it implicitly by saying that, to the extent she didn’t completely destroy Trump during the first debate, it was because she was struggling under the severe handicap of dealing with his sexist conversational style.
In other words, they’ve pretty much admitted that the woman seeking to lead a country and to do battle on Americans’ behalf at home and abroad can’t handle dealing with men. They’re just too overwhelming for her.
If you doubt my take, get a load of the whiny feminist headlines that have taken over my Facebook feed, thanks to my living in a Blue enclave:
Stephen Colbert blasted the different expectations for the presidential candidates in their first debate in a live “The Late Show” Monday night.
“Hillary (Clinton) had to be confident without smug…commanding without shrill,” Colbert said.
I don’t see anything “shrill” about Hillary. She hectors, rather than shrieks. Remember this:
Not shrill, just angry and entitled.
Call it “mansplaining,” “bropropriating,” or “Kanye at the VMAs,” women are familiar with being interrupted by men when they speak.
So when Donald Trump repeatedly interrupted Hillary Clinton at Monday night’s debate — 51 times, according to Vox — it hit home for much of the audience.
Women have been interrupted by men in professional settings for decades. Whether it’s Kanye West cutting off Taylor Swift at the MTV Video Music Awards or an executive halted midsentence by her peer in a corporate meeting, studies have found that men are more likely to block women from talking entirely, to correct them, and to prevent them from using expletives.
While feminists and their pajama-boy men are rushing to Hillary’s defense, conservatives are robustly castigating Donald for not being tougher in his dealings with Lester Holt, who interrupted him constantly and framed all the questions to support Hillary’s Leftist agenda. Sure, Holt was mean to Donald, but if you can’t stand up to the moderator, are you really going to be able to stand up to Putin? Or Kim Jong Un? Or all those nasty Republican men in Congress? Or the Iranian Mullahs? We expect Donald to do so, but we’re being told that Hillary cannot.
In fact, a lot of women have managed to rule in a man’s world without have the rules remade for them: Boudica, Queen Elizabeth I, Catherine the Great, Golda Meir, Margaret “Iron Lady” Thatcher (who relished, not ran from or whined about, the fight), Indira Gandhi, Angela Merkel (Hillary’s favorite), Corazon Aquino, etc. All were strong women who managed to deal with mansplaining in macho cultures.
And then, of course, there’s the whole Trump is “sexist” charge, which is just the 2016 version of 2008’s and 2012’s claim that “everyone who doesn’t support Obama is racist.” With this charge floating in the air, there’s a lot of smug laughter on the Left and head shaking on the right about the fact that Trump refuses to let go of the whole Alicia “Miss Piggy” Machado thing.
What many have already forgotten is that Hillary brought the matter up, out of the blue, as a way to avoid Benghazi, the Clinton Foundation, pay for play, Bimbo eruptions, etc. People will also forget the details of Trump’s fighting back. What they will remember is that Machado willingly put her body on display to win a prize, then let that same body run to fat, then did porn, and then was involved in murder. It’s not about sexism, it’s about the facts.
And another thing: Republicans are wrong to tell Trump not to attack Hillary about Bill’s women. Bass ackwards wrong.
If Hillary’s now going to play the sexism card against him, Donald should beat her around the head with it. There’s nothing pro-woman about Hillary’s brutal, endless, and successful efforts to destroy the women that Bill raped, assaulted, or lied about having slept with. Hillary is the ultimate unfeminist, one who put her male husband’s career over women’s health, safety, and honor. As Hillary herself said of women who have survived precisely the kind of sexual assault Bill visited upon them, “Don’t let anyone silence your voice. You have the right to be heard. You have the right to be believed and we’re with you.”
Feminists are doing their damndest to prop Hillary up. This is going to backfire, as they’ve been locked too long in their pretty pink caves and have lost perspective. Otherwise, they wouldn’t shout from the rooftops that Hillary is too weak to function in what is, after all, a world that is predominantly populated by male leaders.
Moreover, they’re setting her up for a huge fall regarding her whole claim that Donald is sexist. At least he has the excuse that he’s a man. Hillary, however, is a traitor to her sex.
