Hillary dons leather superhero cape and scolds O’Reilly and Spicer for sexist, racist behavior

Powered by Topple

To the thrill of liberal women everywhere, Hillary Clinton donned her superhero cape and came out swinging against White House press secretary Sean Spicer and Fox News host Bill O’Reilly.

The former Democratic presidential candidate spoke in San Francisco Tuesday at the Professional Business Women of California conference, firing shots at President Trump’s administration and criticizing Spicer and O’Reilly’s separate incidents with women that same day.

“Just look at all that’s happened in the last two days to women who were simply doing their jobs,” she said.

Clinton claimed Spicer “patronized” April Ryan, Washington Bureau Chief for American Urban Radio Networks, during an exchange at Tuesday’s White House press briefing.

Spicer’s frustration with Ryan’s questions about the administration’s alleged ties with Russia brimmed over as he tried to move on to other topics, telling the reporter to stop shaking her head at him. After another confrontational question a short time later, Spicer accused Ryan of being “hell-bent” on portraying a certain image of the White House.

“April Ryan, a respected journalist with unrivaled integrity,” Clinton said, defending the correspondent, “was doing her job just this afternoon in the White House pressroom when she was patronized and cut off trying to ask a question.”

Clinton also slammed Fox News anchor Bill O’Reilly, referring to a “racist joke” he made about Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters. O’Reilly’s comment on the air Tuesday that Waters’ hair looked like a “James Brown wig” set off a torrent of criticism from hyper-sensitive liberals.

The Fox News host capitulated with an apology later in the day and addressed the issue again in his network show, “The O’Reilly Factor.”

“One of your own California congresswomen, Maxine Waters, was taunted with a racist joke about her hair,” Clinton told the crowd at the gender equality conference.

“Now too many women, especially women of color have had a lifetime of practice taking precisely these indignities in stride,” Clinton said. “But why should they have to? And any woman who thinks this couldn’t be directed at her is living in a dream world.”

Funny how the feminist champion did not have any sisterly support for White House counselor Kellyanne Conway when Democratic Rep. Cedric Richmond made a crude and sexist “joke” about her. The Louisiana congressman’s vile comment that Conway looked “familiar” on her knees in an Oval Office photo sparked outrage even from liberals.

But while even Chelsea Clinton slammed Richmond’s remarks, for which he would not apologize, her mother remained conspicuously quiet.
