    As sexual misconduct scandals hit Capitol Hill, it makes even more sense for the party to run a female candidate against the sexist president. This year, Franken emerged as an outside contender for the presidency in 2020. The former Saturday Night Live comedian, elected in 2009, is an effective and studious senator who’s earned the respect of his peers—and, lately, the fear of his opponents, as he’s been one of the Senate’s most ruthless interrogators of Trump nominees and one of his party’s most entertaining critics of the president. Now, his job is in serious jeopardy and he’s out of...

    Halloween is over, but Hillary is still out there scaring America. Appearing on Trevor Noah’s show last night, Hillary told Noah, “I’m still ready” to be president. Her line came in response to a blooper roll Noah ran in which a number of people, including Sean Hannity, mistakenly alluded to Hillary as president.

  • Michelle Obama says men are 'entitled,' 'self-righteous' because women protect them too much

    Michelle Obama says men are 'entitled,' 'self-righteous' because women protect them too much Fox News Former first lady Michelle Obama explained Wednesday at a summit in Chicago that she believes men are “entitled,” and that women protect them too much. Speaking at the first Obama Foundation international summit, Obama -- one of the event’s headliners -- said that men are essentially babied and protected by women, while women are raised to be “strong.” “It’s like the problem in the world today is we love our boys, and we raise our girls,” Obama said. “We raise them to be strong, and...

    My kids didn’t have school the day after Donald Trump won the presidential election and eventually, near noon, they came into my room to see what was wrong with me. Perhaps they’d come to me at their father’s prompting. Perhaps they’d heard me weeping. They’d never seen me this way before. Inconsolable. “Hillary didn’t lose!” I insisted, as they sat on the bed around me, even as Hillary’s voice drifted into the room — her concession speech, on the radio downstairs, my husband shouting up, “Honey, you should come listen to this!” I would not listen. I would never listen....
  • Clinton: There's a 'game that’s being played to keep women in their place'

    While promoting her newly released memoir, Hillary Clinton has placed blame on several factors for her loss to Donald Trump last November — from her own mistakes, to Russian interference in the U.S. election, and the late intervention by then-FBI director James Comey. But Clinton has also spoken candidly about how deep-rooted sexism played a hand in her defeat, and about the double standards she faced as the first woman nominated by a major party for president in America’s 240-year history. In an interview with the New York Times published Saturday, Clinton spoke further about how misogyny is used as...

    With Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton's stunning election night loss to now-President Donald Trump, the largest glass ceiling in American politics remained intact. The literal glass ceiling at the Clinton election-night party at the Javits Center in New York added insult to injury for those hoping to see the election of the first female president. Of the United States' 44 presidents, all have been men. But with Donald Trump struggling with strikingly low approval ratings in his first year in office, some are already envisioning the 2020 field. [Snip] Here are eight women who could, potentially, become the first female president...
  • Washington Post Agrees With Clinton: She Lost Because She's a Woman

    In Monday’s Washington Post, the media’s pathetic attempt to blame everyone but Hillary Clinton for her election loss trudged on. Today’s paper highlighted a study by two professors at the University of Texas at Dallas, that surveyed what voters felt about women in the workplace, and whether or not their answers fit into a “traditionalist” or “progressive” mindset. The survey’s writers concluded that their six question survey found that Clinton was correct: “Negative attitudes toward women affects voters in 2016, and the impact of these attitudes influenced the outcome of the election.” The study’s writers, professors Harold Clarke and Marianne Stewart, found...

    Actress Zoe Saldana says the election of Donald Trump taught her that sexism is a more “aggressive” problem than racism in America. “There was a realization that I just had in this last election is that, that America is racist — of course, there’s racism everywhere, I’m not saying that there isn’t — but I think that sexism is much stronger and it’s much more aggressive,” the Guardians of the Galaxy star said in an interview on SiriusXM’s “Sway in the Morning.” Saldana conceded that there are women in various leadership positions today, but argued that “CEOs are primarily males”...

    My fellow women sisters, what just happened today in France is a big blow (no pun intended) for our cause. A total travesty. Please join me in sisterhood for a women's rights march on the famed Avenue des Champs-Élysées. We are going to take back our vaginas from the oppressive supporters of Macron who defeated Le Pen today. Le Pen did not break the glass ceiling today, thanks to all the misogynist, vagina-grabbing men who voted for Macron.

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) is already worried about the GOP's chances of keeping the White House in 2020. In a panel discussion Tuesday, Cruz warned that Democrats, led by Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), could retake the White House in 2020 if President Trump and Republicans fail to overcome party divides that threaten their ability to govern.
  • ‘Meet the Press’ Debates If Hillary Lost Because of the Country’s ‘Misogyny’

    In a ridiculous discussion that sounded as though it belonged in a forum of a left-wing website, the panel on Sunday’s Meet the Press bemoaned how the country’s attitude towards women cost Hillary Clinton the White House. Moderator Chuck Todd read from the recent NYT column of Nicholas Kristof, who described Clinton’s idea of Trump voters as “I don’t agree with him, I’m not sure I really approve of him, but he looks like somebody who’s been president before.” Paraphrasing Clinton, Todd suggested that “she believed misogyny played a much larger role in this than it’s been analyzed by many...

    Hillary Clinton told attendees at the Women in the World conference that "misogyny" played a role in her electoral defeat to Donald Trump last November. Curiously, she made that obvervation in response to a question about why white women didn't vote for her. Apparently, she believes that some women hate themselves because they're women.

    Hillary Clinton said Thursday that misogyny "certainly" played a role in her bruising defeat to Donald Trump in last year's US presidential election, giving her first public interview since that shock loss. "I don't know that there is one answer," she told the Women in the World Summit in New York when asked why a majority of white women voted for a Republican who had boasted of groping women. "Certainly misogyny played a role, I mean that just has to be admitted," added the former secretary of state, who was treated to an ecstatic welcome and standing ovation from the...

    But when the cameras are rolling and you’re a 35-year-old woman who should know how much symbols matter it leaves all kinds of uncomfortable questions: What is Ivanka Trump up to, anyway? What is her strange, as-yet-undefined mission in the White House? And, if it’s not too much to ask, where is her stepmother and what has she done with her? No one envies Melania having to fill Michelle Obama’s shoes — at least some of her reticence is justified. , Michelle Obama set a high watermark in so many areas: mother, wife, style icon, role model to women around...

    Hillary Rodham Clinton has had an odd career for a feminist icon. Her main occupation has consisted of being the long-suffering wife of a powerful man, infamous for treating subordinate women as disposable conveniences, who abused her ruthlessly and humiliated her publicly. In exchange for standing by her man, she was given an orphaned Senate seat in New York, where she did not live, and two shots at the presidency, which she lost to an unknown back-bencher from Chicago in 2008 and to a reality-television host in 2016. Margaret Thatcher she isn't.

    One of the many, many consequences of Donald Trump’s victory Tuesday night is that the nation will have to wait at least four more years to see a woman elected president. Hillary Clinton’s loss came as a devastating blow to many people across the country eager to see a woman take office. But among Tuesday’s winners is California’s new Democratic senator-elect, Kamala Harris, who may be the next best hope for shattering that glass ceiling.
