Julius Caesar's great-great-granddaughter
I remember when Bill Clinton was first elected. He wasn't my choice for president - he was too facile, too much of a schmoozer for my taste. (I don't remember who I preferred, but it was definitely not Al Gore - I knew a cousin of his and a more obnoxious, worthless waste of space I have never met).|
I also remember when Bill Clinton became president and put his wife Hillary in his cabinet. OMG, you would have thought he proposed that she run through the street naked. Women were NOT supposed to be in positions of power, or helping their husband with his job, or anything like that. No, women were supposed to be no more than beautiful social butterflies that took care of the children and the house and maybe talked about something they thought was important. But only one thing, and only if asked.
Then Hillary proposed a single-payer system of healthcare, and that was even worse. Because that was socialized medicine, and we all know that socialism is just godless communism under a different name.
When single-payer failed, Hillary retreated to the FLOTUS role. And of course there were jokes made about her being a lesbian. Because all strong women are either sluts, dykes, hags or ice queens, depending on how much the speaker wants to fuck them, and how approachable they appear to be for said fucking.
I even knew a particularly conservative religious person who was APPALLED because when Hillary's father died, she decided to memorialize him by using her maiden name - in addition to, not instead of her married name.
Now, remember all these people who were critical of Hillary when her husband first became president. How often have these people believed and spread whatever lies and B.S. they heard? How many people, if faced with resistance to one lie, would change the lie till there wasn't resistance?
And how many of y'all out there could have handled that onslaught with the humor and grace that Hillary has?
You go, Hillary - it's your turn to shine.
