Warren talks about sexism, getting 'Hillary'd' on the campaign trail [View all]

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) on Monday night talked about how she deals with sexism on the campaign trail after a student at a CNN town hall asked her if she was worried she’d get “Hillary’d,” or held to a higher standard than a man.

Warren responded to the question by recounting how she had defeated former Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.) in 2012, even though she said most Democrats in the state didn’t believe a woman could defeat him.

“I jumped in the race and sure enough the only coverage is about what I’m wearing, about my hair or my voice or if I smiled enough,” Warren said.

The Massachusetts Democrat said that every day she’d seek out a young girl and get down on a knee and tell the child that she’s running for Senate “because that’s what girls do.”


If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
