Hillary’s Struggle to Get The Dem Nomination is FREAKING OUT FEMINISTS
Some feminists are unhappy that Hillary Clinton is having trouble sealing the deal with Democrat primary voters, especially young people. Haven’t they heard that she’s a woman?

Feminists Melt Down Over Unlikable Hillary Clinton
After months of polls, pontification, and fevered speculation, the Iowa caucuses—and with them, the first official votes of the 2016 presidential primary—are finally in America’s taillights. The biggest loser, at least according to conventional wisdom, might be Donald Trump, who came in second to Ted Cruz, almost lost to Marco Rubio, and eventually erupted in an epic Twitter meltdown, complete with accusations of foul play and a dramatic demand to redo the entire Iowa vote.
But there’s another loser here, one who has long been overshadowed by the media’s love affair with the frenetic Mr. Trump. That would be Hillary Clinton, America’s supposed feminist icon who barely squeaked past wild-eyed, tufty-haired socialist Bernie Sanders. According to the latest counts in Iowa—counts that may yet be challenged by the Sanders camp—Clinton “won” by fewer than four delegates, with the help of at least six coin tosses.
Poor Hillary. She just can’t seem to catch a break. Recall that in 2008, Hillary lost Iowa not only to a young, fresh, and charming Barack Obama. She also lost, albeit by one point, to the very smarmy John Edwards. This time around, when the stars were allegedly cast her way, a whopping 84 percent of Democratic voters under the age of 30 “Felt the Bern,” pulling for Sanders; Hillary, for her part, dominated the senior demographic.
This has led certain feminists to the verge of a nervous breakdown. Why, the chorus goes, is Bernie cast as the future, while Hillary gets painted as “the establishment”? Hillary Clinton is a woman, didn’t you notice?
Read the rest here.
According to some feminists, Hillary should be president just because she’s a woman.
That’s only fair, right?
