Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton just released a divorce notice. This is a developing story, but what we already know is sad. Americans nationwide are stunned.
Appearing on The View, ABC’s midday talk show, Clinton recounted her friend choosing to accept the wishes of a child wanting to change genders and compared it to her decision to stay with then-President Bill Clinton.
She said it “was really gutsy” for her friend to say, “I’m going to respect the feelings of my child as hard as it is for me to understand this.” Before sharing this story, Clinton called her choice not to leave Bill “gutsy.”
“I think when the question was asked, personally, everybody faces a moment of decision, and you have to reach deep down inside and decide what’s right for you to do and hopefully it’s reached with love and understanding,” she continued.
Let’s get something clear: Not only is this a strange comparison to make — she got away with it only because she was on a liberal talk show — there was nothing “gutsy” about choosing to stay with President Clinton.
Hillary’s political future was directly tied to her husband. Divorcing him would have ended her political ambitions and possibly even ended Bill’s presidency. She stayed because it was politically convenient. That’s all.
