Hillary Clinton isn’t just winning the Democratic nomination, she’s doing it in the face of an unprecedented onslaught from the right, left and media. At BNR, we will not shy away from calling out sexism and misogyny wherever and whenever we see it.
There’s not much to say about this Vanity Fair article other than that it’s repugnant and sexist.
We’ll leave it to Bernie Sanders to provide context:
“I think for a variety of reasons, Hillary Clinton has been under all kinds of attack for many, many years. In fact, I can’t think of many personalities who have been attacked for more reasons than Hillary Clinton. And by the way, let me be frank and I’m running against her: Some of it is sexist.I don’t know that a man would be treated the same way that Hillary is.”
Vanity Fair should be ashamed of publishing such a demeaning headline. When you ask if the candidate with millions more votes and more enthusiasm than anyone in the race has “outstayed her welcome,” there’s only one word for that.
