Women Still Not Treated As Equal
The latest example comes as Democratic presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton leaves a 911 memorial program early because she doesn’t feel good.
Cue the right wing conspiracy machine, again. Tabloid headlines become major media “stories” filled with supposition. Her opponent, fake billionaire misogynist deadbeat Donald Trump, tweets “she’s unfit to be president” and other unsubstantiated stuff. Breaking news on Fox and CNN have her at death’s door.
At least the soap opera dialogue has moved on from her underestimation of the % of deporables in Trump’s basket. Polls reveal that the number of racists, misogynists and right wing extremists is a larger portion than half of Trump’s supporters.
What got my goat was reading the updated reports after her doctor stated that Hillary has been taking antibiotics since Thursday to treat pneumonia.
I can specifically recall being on tour, singing at various west Texas high schools while taking antibiotics for “walking” pneumonia. (at least that’s what they called it back then) If she is giving speeches and making appearances, her bout of pneumonia is not the life and death event that the headlines claim.
If you have ever taken antibiotics, you may have discovered that being in the hot sun does not make you feel good while taking them. I know this from personal experience. Some of you know this. Some doctors even advise you to stay out of the sun. That would explain everything to every ones satisfaction, if she were a man.
However, I just read a BBC bulletin that stated this;
Analysis - Anthony Zurcher, BBC News, Washington
“George HW Bush once vomited on a Japanese prime minister. His son fainted in the White House after nearly choking on a pretzel. Franklin Roosevelt hid his serious health conditions, and John F Kennedy never spoke of his debilitating back condition.” (Link to source)
He then goes on to write how worrisome it is that Hillary has pneumonia and how that may make people feel she is unfit to be president when they vote in November.
WTF! If she were a man, they would be writing about how brave and strong he is for getting back out on the job after a short rest.
People with clenched fists can not shake hands.
