Republicans in Congress and around the country don’t just disagree with Hillary Clinton; they loathe her. They didn’t just aim to defeat her; they throw themselves full bore into destroying her. It’s hard to say which case of Republican derangement syndrome is worse: that directed toward the woman who aspired to the Oval Office, or their visceral hatred of the black man who actually occupied it for eight years.
Racism, yes. Misogyny, yes. I simply don’t know any other way of explaining it.
Hillary gets pushback even now, some of it quite vicious, when she speaks out about the election or about Trump. I think at this point she’s earned the right to say whatever she wants. I look forward to hearing from her, and I hope she keeps speaking out.
