The race for the presidency is heating up as Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump both try to dismantle each others credibility. This time it is a rumor from the 90s that is haunting the Clinton campaign.
The rumor states that shortly after her husband took office, Clinton made disparaging remarks about nurses. She allegedly referred to them as glorified baby sitters or under-educated, overpaid maids.
Despite the lack of evidence supporting the authenticity of the statement, it has proved very difficult to quell. Even after a decade, the rumor has continued to be a blight to her career. Quote Still Haunting Hillary Clinton
According to Snopes, accusations continued well over into the 2000s. It has also accompanied her every time the she bids for political office. Like us on Facebook
Back in February of 2008, the alleged quote once again reared its ugly head. In a message to AllNurses, a user inquired regarding her statement about nurses being glorified babysitters.
The inquiry was revealed to be a last resort in finding information regarding the matter after searching the web to no avail. For her sake, the user hopes that the rumor is proved to be false, as nurses comprise a large voting population.
In every case where the authenticity of the rumor is challenged, many people claim that they distinctly remember her saying such statements. However, when asked to provide concrete evidence, they simply reason out that the statement was made in the 90s when information was not readily available.
The rumor once again appeared on the same forum last month. This time it claimed that Mrs. Clinton called nurses overpaid and nothing but doctors handmaidens.
This month even saw an image of a message from a friend nurse making rounds on social media. It suggests that people reconsider voting for Clinton due to her disparaging statements.
Despite this, the American Nurses Association has put their support behind Hillary Clinton as they did back in 2008. It is still unclear whether her opponent Donald Trump will make use of the allegations come the debates.
Someone who provides their boob for sucking upon???
“What do you think I’m gonna do, stay home & bake cookies?”
One of my favorites/sarcasm off.
Yeah, and as soon as you become a drooling idiot laying in a bed wearing adult diapers you’ll wish they were there for you.
I just hang my head
She has no taste in clothes and always walks around looking like a clown.
I saw the same picture in the dictionary while I was looking up “worthless turd.”
It’s actually a twofer, because Cher’s one too! Bless Webster!
Misleading header=====there is no direct quote.
Suddenly I’m not feeling so well.
She has gotten away with acting like she is smarter and better than everyone else for quite a long time.
Wish this could be verified, because it sounds exactly like something that witch would say, and I would pay good money to hear Kellyanne Conway jump all over it.
Hillary is ready for her close up.
Hillary has also been quoted as referring to both Jesse Jackson and Robert McIntosh as “niggers.” Two “niggers” and a “fucking Jew bastard” for Hitlery but we’re supposed to believe Trump is the Bigot....
Whatever Happened to Baby Hillary?
She's never spent time in a hospital. The bedsheet-changing is handled by aides. These days you need your bachelors degree in nursing to get hired, and many have masters degrees. They are highly trained professionals. I was in the hospital not that long ago, and I found all my nurses to be superb human beings.
