I have tried to stay out of the presidential campaign this season. We have a series bad and worse choices, and it is rather sad to see our political system devolve to such a state. That said, I have been waiting for Hilary Clinton to play the woman card. She took her time with it. I expected it to happened earlier last summer, however, she waited until Bernie Sanders began to beat her in the polls and in primaries.
The reason is simple: young women are voting for Sanders. That has to hurt Clinton, who assumed she would snatch up the female vote with ease. In response to this, Gloria Steinem and Madeleine Albright made statements attacking those female voters. Albright said they would go to hell for not supporting Clinton, and Steinem accused them of supporting Sanders because they want to have sex with Sanders’s male supporters.
It seems the Clinton campaign wants to go the “vote for me because I’m a woman” route, complete Clinton claiming she is an outsider because she is female.
This is the sort of thing I cannot take seriously, and thankfully I am not the only one. Lauren Southern released a satirical video about her support of Clinton:
