Hillary is traveling the country, claiming that she is a champion of women and attacking Trump for his leaked, vulgar comments. At the same time, she’s touting celebrity “allies” who have a history of publically referencing females in derogatory, demeaning - and sometimes, violent - ways.
Trump’s comments caused disgust and outrage across the country—and rightly so; but let’s not be deceived by the other side. Before throwing stones, Hillary and her supporters should take a look in the mirror.
Warning: Crude language below.
1. Bill Clinton
We don’t need leaked audio tapes to know how Bill Clinton has spoken about or treated women. Even those who weren’t alive for his presidency, know about the scandal that defined his time in office. He, too, has had multiple women come forward accusing him of sexual assault.
L.D. Brown, an Arkansas State Trooper who worked on Bill’s security detail in the mid-1980s, also revealed during his deposition for the Paula Jones sexual harassment lawsuit in 1997 that Bill played the same sexist game as Trump - he would rate women based on their appearance.
“Grading, as degrading as it may sound, is something that he and I both would do. Every—pretty much every pretty woman that we would see: eight, nine, ten, seven, six, whatever,” admitted Brown.
Brown was also asked if he solicited women for Bill. His answer: yes.
2. Jay Z
The 46 year-old rapper announced he would host a free ‘Get out the Vote’ concert for Hillary in Cleveland, Ohio on November 4. In his 2002 song “B**ches and Sisters,” he rapped about “b**ches” getting “what they deserve.” And then there’s this whole stanza:
“You ain't no better cause you don't be f**king rappers / You only f**k with actors, you still getting f**ked backward / (B**ch) Unless you f**ked a dude on his own merit / And not the way he dribbles or ball or draw lyrics / You’re a (B**ch), No ma, you're a (B**ch).”
Other questionable titles include 2011’s “That’s My B**ch” with Kanye West - another Clinton supporter; “99 Problems” which generously features the words “b**ch”, “hoes” and the n-word; and “P***y” with R.Kelly. Classy.
3. Pusha T
Another rapper who supports Hillary has built his business on selling lyrics that degrade women. His 2015 song “Got ‘Em Covered” included:
“All of you lil' n*ggas quote all of the wrong figure / Poke all of the wrong b**ches / And follow the wrong n*ggas."
And 2013’s “Numbers on the Boards”:
“Ballers, I put numbers on the boards / Hard to get a handle on this double-edged sword / Whether rappin' or I'm rappin' to a wh**e / Might reach back and relapse to wrappin' up this raw...Ballers, I put numbers on the boards / Can't a b**ch live and say I bought her Michael Kors?”
Is this how Hillary wants to teach our children to respect women?
Pusha T joined Tim Kaine on the campaign trail a few days ago to discuss police brutality. During the conversation Kaine told Pusha T, "I'm so impressed with not only your art but that you are speaking a message to people and helping to advance our country and our commonwealth.” We’re not impressed with his art or the message it seems to send.
4. Snoop Dogg
Here are lyrics from the rapper’s 1993 “Ain’t No Fun (If the Homies Can’t Have None)”:
“I have no love for h*es that's somethin' that I learned in the pound / So how the f**k am I supposed to pay this h*e / Just to lay this h*e I know the p***y's mines / I'ma f**k a couple more times / And then I'm through with it, there's nothing else to do with it / Pass it to the homie, now you hit it / 'Cause she ain't nothin' but a b**ch to me / And y'all know, that b**ches ain't shit to me.”
Why isn’t Hillary denouncing this?
5. Trevor Noah
In March 2015, the new Daily Show host faced backlash for jokes he posted to Twitter between 2009 and 2012. The tweets were labeled as anti-Semitic and sexist.
"Oh yeah the weekend. People are gonna get drunk & think that I'm sexy!" - fat chicks everywhere.— Trevor Noah (@Trevornoah) October">https://twitter.com/Trevornoah/status/124793524095... 14, 2011
Another read: “In Thailand hookers are so cheap, even cheaper than food. Tough choice between Big Mac and Quarter Pounder Deluxe.”
And another: “A hot white woman with a** is like a unicorn. Even if you do see one, you'll probably never get to ride it.”
He even made a joke about domestic violence
Originally when men proposed they went down on one knee so if the woman said no they were in the perfect uppercut position.— Trevor Noah (@Trevornoah) December">https://twitter.com/Trevornoah/status/281753454278... 20, 2012
And yet Noah has consistently blasted Trump for his remarks about women, specifically when Trump commented on former Miss Universe Alicia Machado’s weight.
Oh the hypocrisy.
