Hillary Clinton: Nobody Said A Word When It Was My Fake Severed Head

“I’ve always just sucked it up,” Clinton said about the gender bias she’s experienced as a successful woman working in government. “I sucked it up in ’08 when some really unpleasant things happened to me ... And I sucked it up in the 2016 campaign when I was called names and things were said and done to me.”

She added, “We recently had this big kerfuffle ― this condemnation of Kathy Griffin ― for the picture she had of herself holding a head of Trump like a play on Perseus holding the head of Medusa,” Clinton said.

“They were selling T-shirts and mugs at the Republican [National] Convention with Trump holding my head. Nobody said a word. Not a word!”

The anti-Clinton merchandise created during the 2016 campaign was disgustingly sexist, featuring profane slogans calling her a “bitch,” “tramp” and even more crass terms.

I do not know how she coped with all that crap. I just don't know how she managed it. She's gotta be the strongest woman on earth. I keep thinking - a latter-day Joan of Arc.

6. Did this bloody head of Hillary get much reaction during Halloween last year?

I didn't see one but I was in ICU for 10 days starting the 18th so I wasn't paying attention to much back then.

The clod says it was a gag.

If it was a "gag" why not use an animal or a witch? (although the asswipe might say that he did use a witch)

8. Yeah, I remember that ....

Which is WHY I don't want to hear ONE word about Kathy Griffin.

NOT...ONE...DAMN...WORD.

I wish Dems had bought up HILLARY'S severed head, but uh no they didn't. Something about flying high, being better than them

Pointing out obvious double-standards is NOT a bad thing ....

Yes. We can't do it all, Dem leadership. We can't make the media take notice.

You have to take them down publicly on their hypocrisy and lies, and you have to keep up a steady drumbeat.

12. DOUBLE STANDARDS yet again! Double standards throughout the ENTIRE campaign...

... from the beginning to the end, the double-standards couldn't have been more obvious (and insulting and infuriating).

What's even more concerning is when I see people whose hatred and resentment toward Hillary makes them feel justified in actually DEFENDING the double-standards (or by playing dumb and denying that it exists at all).

37. Ted Nugent called Obama a "sub human mongerel".

And then there was some right winger calling Michelle Obama "an ape in high heels". And they have the nerve to say we're disrespecting their president? GTFO!!! We're just getting started!

18. I remember the nasty anti-Hillary stuff that they were hawking at the Repug convention.

You don't see that kind of nastiness on the Democratic side, yet Republicans get outraged or have a fainting spell at the least criticism. Perseus/Medusa? How many Trumpers would even get it? It came to my mind, being an English major, but I really wouldn't blame anyone else for not thinking the same. I assume that was Griffin's reference, but there are plenty of bloody heads displayed in history and literature. OTOH, Obama with a bone through his nose and a spear, etc. didn't get anyone fired, as far as I know; and I found it VERY offensive.

28. the difference is like in all US politics - 1500 coordinated radio stations decide what is

and what isn't acceptable and what's important in US politics - that's why trump's guys studied talk radio in 2014

how can there be hypocrisy if 1500 radio stations say it all day?
