College Women Tell NBC They Were Offended Hillary Clinton Played Gender Card
During an appearance on MSNBC, NBC reporter Tamron Hall said that the college women she spoke to after Thursday’s Democratic presidential debate were “offended” after Hillary Clinton made appeals to the fact that she’d be the first female president.
Hall said that in a randomly-selected group of college students she spoke to, “the young women there did not care that Hillary Clinton could be the first woman president.”
“That’s crazy!” NBC’s Chris Jansing responded.
“In fact, several of them were offended when she brought the line up pointing to the fact, ‘How can I be establishment, I’m a woman running for president,’” Hall said.
She then played a few of her interviews with the young women. “I think you have to realize that everybody’s human and you have to go for who has the best ideals, and just because she’s a woman doesn’t make her the best candidate,” one told her.
“I also am a woman,” another said. “I also face discrimination being a woman. Her feminism does not represent my feminism, and I think that’s really important to differentiate that.”
