Former Secretary of State and Democratic candidate for president, Hillary Clinton, is one of the phoniest politicians that we’ve ever seen.
She used her husband Bill’s career as a catapult for her own and then acted as though she was qualified to be the Senator of New York and Obama’s Secretary of State. Hillary acted as though the presidency was owed to her, which turned even the most liberal Democrats off in 2016.
But you’ll never believe Hillary Clinton’s phony comment about the upcoming Academy Awards.
Although it’s perpetuated constantly, Hillary Clinton is no friend to women. She pretends to support women’s rights, but that couldn’t be further from the truth.
The prime example is her apathetic approach to the decades of adultery committed by her husband. Did you ever hear Hillary Clinton stand up for women who accused former President Bill Clinton? Some of the accusations against him were absolutely heinous.
Was she concerned with Bill’s (and maybe her) connection to former child rapist Jeffrey Epstein?
Hillary also had a bone to pick with white women, in the same vein of “basket of deplorables,” she was insulting to those who voted for now-President Trump. According to her, they caved to ”ongoing pressure to vote the way that your husband, your boss, your son, whoever, believes you should.”
The point is that she’s not the “feminist” champion that many feminists think she is.
And that’s why Hillary Clinton’s comment that she was “disappointed” by the lack of female director Oscar nominees is completely phony.
Hillary Clinton was at this year’s Sundance Film Festival to promote director Nanette Burstein’s new docuseries, “Hillary,” which examines her journey in her attempt to become president. At a Q&A she was asked, “Why were no women directors featured among the 2020 Academy Award nominees?”
She responded, “I am always fascinated by who gets nominated and who doesn’t and having just worked with a superb woman director. I was disappointed that there weren’t more women in the director slot to be nominated because I think that there were several that did incredibly good work. Like everybody else, I’ll tune in to see what happens.”
Amongst some female directors that the Academy could have considered were Greta Gerwig for “Little Women” and Alma Har’el for “Honey Boy,” Marielle Heller for “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood” and Lulu Wang for “The Farewell.”
And to be fair, they are legitimate candidates. Each had a unique and distinct direction that were better than many male directors this year. After all, only five women in the history of the Oscars have ever made it onto the ballot – Lina Wertmuller (1976′s “Seven Beauties”), Jane Campion (1993′s “The Piano”), Sofia Coppola (2003′s “Lost in Translation”), Kathryn Bigelow (2009′s “The Hurt Locker”) and Greta Gerwig (2017′s “Lady Bird”). Bigelow is the only one to actually take home the honor.
But the problem is that Hillary Clinton had the audacity to say this, as if she was a champion for women not getting their comeuppance. We all know her feeling that way couldn’t be farther from the truth. That makes her comment phony. That makes her a phony.
It would be different if she was a champion for women’s rights, but when you look at her track record for women, it doesn’t get any more hypocritical.
