Former first lady Michelle Obama recently talked about women who voted for President Donald Trump instead of Hillary Clinton, but some women are not happy about that.
“Any woman who voted against Hillary Clinton voted against their own voice,” Obama told the audience recently at a marketing conference in Boston.
However, Tammy Bruce is not happy with this:
And what exactly does that mean? After all, the feminist movement was about women becoming free to be able to make choices that best suited us. I don’t remember any discussion that our independence really meant we should do whatever Hillary Clinton and her minions told us to do.
Someone should alert Michelle Obama and Hillary Clinton that the feminist movement was not about switching out the men we were told were controlling our lives only so ambitious, condescending, and smug women could lecture and shame us instead.
“It doesn’t say much about Hillary, and everybody’s trying to worry about what it means for Hillary and no, no, no what does this mean for us as women?” Obama asked. “That we look at those two candidates, as women, and many of us said, ‘He’s better for me. His voice is more true to me.’ To me that just says, you don’t like your voice. You just like the thing you’re told to like.”
Yet Michelle Obama wasn’t the only person smearing millions of American women as dumb and empty-headed, or worse, mentally ill, because they – gasp – are thinking for themselves.
Hillary Clinton was also diagnosing them with the same self-loathing disrespect. Because, let’s be honest, at some point you run out of Russians, sexism and misogyny to blame for losing the election.
Clinton took aim. In an interview on “AM Joy” on MSNBC, the defeated presidential candidate commented on why women voted for Donald Trump.
“When I see women doing that, I think why are they publicly disrespecting themselves?” Clinton said. “Why are they opening the door to have someone say that about them in their workplace? In a community setting? Do they not see the connection there?”
