Women who don a suit for their position of power are often referred to as lesbians as some sort of insult, like their want for something usually held by men makes them automatically gay. Oprah has been one of these women, but Hillary Clinton seems to get the rumors and jokes even more than others. Today on The View, co-host Jenny McCarthy perpetuated that myth while discussing the Clinton’s marriage, saying of Bill and Hill:
A new book called Blood Feud: The Clintons vs. the Obamas was just released from conservative author Edward Klein, who has claimed to know female lovers of Hillary’s, though no one has ever stepped forward publicly. Hillary has been a strong supporter of women and the LGBT community, but that doesn’t mean she’s gay any more than her short haircut might. The politician and former first lady has enough integrity that I’d like to think she’d be out and proud were she gay or bisexual. And I’d still vote for her. Hillary in 2016!
“Maybe he has his girlfriends and she has her girlfriends, you never know. Maybe they have an arrangement.”
p.s. Jenny McCarthy, you can leave The View now. Bye!
