Maybe the reason 59 percent of men didn’t vote for Hillary Clinton was that they knew she really doesn’t like them.
Throughout Clinton’s Tuesday speech to the Professional BusinessWomen of California conference, the failed presidential candidate criticized White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, Fox News host Bill O’Reilly (though neither by name), her male colleagues at the Rose Law Firm, NASA and even a Harvard professor.
Clinton, who largely took a negative posture during the speech, suggested when ideas from men and women are treated differently in a staff meeting, women “pool our respective reactions” to zing men in response.
“Nice thought. A little slow on uptake, but good idea,” she proposed saying.
She threw the former managing partner of her law firm under the bus when she recounted a story of being pregnant while working.
“I’d walk down the hall getting bigger and bigger, they’d turn their heads. They didn’t want to talk about it,” Clinton said.
She claimed she kept “raising the idea of what kind of time off do I get,” and she was, of course, ignored by the pig men.
“Chelsea comes early. I have her late one night, the next morning really early my phone rings and it’s our managing partner. He doesn’t say congratulations. He doesn’t say hope you and the baby are fine. He says, ‘When are you coming back to work?'” Clinton said to groans and hisses from the crowd.
“Maybe four months,” Clinton said she replied.
Clinton later recounted being rejected by NASA as a teenager — because she was a woman.
“Being told I was being excluded not because I couldn’t meet the physical demands and my eyesight was so bad, but because I was a girl really stung,” she said.
Hillary said she was rebuffed by a Harvard professor, whom she did not name.
While considering law school, Clinton said she talked to a Harvard prof at a cocktail party and told him she was trying to decide on a school.
“We don’t need any more women,” she claims he said, triggering boos from the audience.
“I was filled with this fundamental belief that it was not only unfair, it was just plain wrong that you would exclude people just on the basis of whatever, you race, or gender, whatever,” she said.
“Then I had experiences in my own life that said ‘ah ha,’ you know, one of those moments that you don’t forget and you kind of keep in the furnace to fuel your efforts going forward,” Clinton said.
