Just as Democrats played the race card in 2008 and 2012 when Barack Obama ran for president, they are now resigned to playing their second favorite card — the gender card. In 2008/2012, any criticism of Barack Obama was swiftly met by cries of racism! 2016 is set to be only slightly different. Because Hillary Clinton is as white as they come, instead Democrats must resort to saying that criticism of the lackluster candidate is the result of sexism.
For most of her campaign, Clinton has denied that she plays the gender card — despite its painful obviousness — but now, Hillary appears ready to embrace the “woman card.”
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is fundraising off of Donald Trump’s assertion that she was simply playing the “woman card” to win the presidency.
“Well, if fighting for women’s healthcare and paid family leave and equal pay is playing the woman card, then Deal. Me. In,” she said during her victory rally in Pennsylvania.
Clinton’s campaign is now capitalizing off of her frequent usage of the gender card by selling little pink cards that say “Woman Card.” One must wonder, though, did somebody at Clinton campaign headquarters design it to look like a subway ticket on purpose for a laugh? We all know how much trouble Hillary has with those.
