KAROL MARKOWICZ: Hillary apologists’ response to collapse is demeaning to women.
Former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm joined in, tweeting that “’powering through’ illness is what women do: Stoically, every. single. Day.” as if Hillary was battling the sniffles.
Or her Hillary fan club is going with the canard that all women get overheated, so fainting in public like this and losing a shoe as you’re dragged into a van is standard. Liberal blogger Melissa McEwen wrote that male members of the media “would do well to listen” about the “heat sensitivity” that women face.
We’re all victims, apparently, and need men to understand us and Hillary Clinton to lead the way.
When Democratic political operative David Axelrod tweeted “Antibiotics can take care of pneumonia. What’s the cure for an unhealthy penchant for privacy that repeatedly creates unnecessary problems?,” MTVNews correspondent Jamil Smith shot back, “Ending sexism would help.” Hillary is secretive to the point of self-harm because of men, obviously.
Was it stoicism or an unstoppable hunger for power that drove Hillary to get ill enough to collapse at an event and have to be carried away? It’s not just women we’d criticize for taking risks with their own health, and the health of those around them. But Hillary always has her fallback excuse: Stop being mean to me, I’m a woman.
Women are too weak to handle fall weather, apparently, but still strong enough to be President.
