I agree.  I don't have a problem with that either on of them said.  Neither of them was trying to downplay slavery. 

Very few people try to downplay slavery. Sure, there are some, but really, it's a very small minority.

I do not believe Dr. Carson meant anything negative about the situation and was simply trying to deliver a message about how the US itself is full of immigrants from different backgrounds and different situations.

Women in Elizabeth Warren's office make less than men - report
Published April 05, 2017
Washington Free Beacon

The gender pay gap in Sen. Elizabeth Warren's office is nearly 10 percent wider than the national average, meaning women in the Massachusetts Democrat's office will have to wait longer than most women across the country to recognize Equal Pay Day.

Equal Pay Day, created two decades ago by the National Committee on Pay Equity, is scheduled by using the Census Bureau annual unadjusted gender pay gap to determine how far into the next year women would have to work to match annual earnings of men. Last year's figures, showing that women earned 79.6 percent of what men earned, put Equal Pay Day on Tuesday April 4, more than three months into the calendar year.

However, women working for Warren were paid just 71 cents for every dollar paid to men during the 2016 fiscal year, according to a Washington Free Beacon analysis.

The median annual earnings for women staffers, $52,750, was more than $20,000 less than the median annual earnings for men, $73,750, according to the analysis of publicly available Senate data.

When calculated using average salaries rather than median, the pay gap expands to just over $26,051, or about 31 percent.

Flashback – MSNBC’s Chris Matthews: ‘Hitler Didn’t Use Chemical Weapons’ (VIDEO)
Cristina Laila Apr 12th, 2017

Yesterday, Press Secretary Sean Spicer came under fire for misspeaking after he compared Assad’s use of chemical weapons to Hitler.

Spicer said that Hitler didn’t use chemical weapons. Of course Sean Spicer apologized and clarified his statement, however; that didn’t stop the leftists from crawling out of their holes to call Sean Spicer a ‘Holocaust denier’; Nancy Pelosi and others even called for his firing. Really?

Well, here’s MSNBC’s Chris Matthews back in 2013 claiming Hitler didn’t use chemical weapons. Is the Anne Frank Center and other leftists going to come out now and call for his firing and accuse him of being a Holocaust denier? Probably not, because he’s a precious leftist and they are allowed to say what ever they want.

Chris Matthews: “If you basically put down a red line and say don’t use chemical weapons, and it’s been enforced in the Western community, around the world–international community for decades. Don’t use chemical weapons. We didn’t use them in World War II, Hitler didn’t use them, we don’t use chemical weapons, that’s no deal.”

Report: Bernie Sanders Was Paid Over $1 Million in 2016
By Jeffrey Rodack   |   Monday, 05 Jun 2017

Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., made over $1 million in 2016 — with $795,000 of it coming from his best-selling book, "Our Revolution," his U.S. Senate financial disclosure revealed.

Aside from his book, Sanders took in another $63,750 for his upcoming book: "Bernie Sanders' Guide to Political Revolution" and $6,735 in royalties from his 1997 book, "Outsider in the House," the Seven Day newspaper in Vermont reported.

"That's more than $865,000 for peddling his working-class ideas," wrote the paper's John Walters. "No bad."

On top of that, the newspaper noted all rank-and-file members of the Senate earn at least $174,000 a year.

This puts the "self-proclaimed Democratic socialist" in the top 4 percent of Americans in terms of income, The Daily Caller said.

The website said Sanders, who made an unsuccessful bid for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016, has made a political career out of attacking the wealthy.

The Daily Caller also noted Sanders owns three homes, including a $600,000 home on the shore of Lake Champlain.

I didn't know he attacked millionaires much, but you must admit that the past several months have been the "big bang" for him in his very long life and the time when he's due for his biggest push. 

So he made about a million bucks in his busiest year.  I don't see how it's inconsistent with anything he's said.

Not too deep a video, I must say.  Easy to watch it and keep track.

But it's difficult to find inconsistencies with only the one word left unedited.

He's capitalizing on and profiting from his position as a public servant, where his primary message includes attacking people and companies that make and have money. 

I think he knows a person needs money to survive, though.  It's the centerpiece of his most meaningful stand.  That's why he repeatedly spoke about "decent paying jobs" disappearing into the corrupted pits of China (and he's the only one who expressed anger and outrage over the undeserved trading status given to them, as they treat their citizens like trash).

No, I'm willing to call him for inconsistencies but I'd need to see them first.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders called "butch queen" by Daily Beast writer and the left is silent
By Todd Starnes
Published July 24, 2017
Fox News
 
Even the “Mean Girls” weren’t this mean.

Just moments after President Trump promoted Sarah Huckabee Sanders to the role of White House press secretary, she was attacked by a swarm of woman-hating liberals.

Click here for a free subscription to Todd’s newsletter: a must-read for Conservatives!

First, the propagandists at The New York Times and MSNBC questioned Sanders’ character and called her a liar, but now journalists are attacking her physical appearance.

Ira Madison, III, of The Daily Beast, likened Sanders to a drag queen in a hateful posting on Twitter.

“Butch queen first time in drags at ball,” he tweeted to his followers – along with a photograph of the press secretary.

Madison is the same “journalist” who cracked a racially-charged “joke” about Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ Asian-American granddaughter during his confirmation hearings. His tweet implied Sessions had borrowed her from a Toys-R-Us store so that he could use her as a political prop. Madison later apologized and deleted the tweet.

And he also penned a disgusting attack on Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson – wondering if his rule in the Trump White House was going to be “house or field.”

Hollywood was especially unkind to Sanders.

“I fetl like Sarah Huckabee Sanders left and right eye switched places or something,” comedian Akliah Hughes wrote on Twitter.

“Sarah Huckabee Sanders looks like every woman eating lobster on a cruise ship,” “Family Guy” writer Damien Fahey tweeted.

Could you imagine the hellfire and brimstone that would’ve rained down had a journalist or comedian made similar remarks about former first lady Michelle Obama?

The outrage over the attacks on Sanders has been limited to a few conservative publications and this column.

There has been no outcry from the feminist movement or female news commentators or enlightened liberals.

It’s as if the “Nasty Woman” crowd pulled their “p---y” hats over their eyes and ears – hoping to tune out the anti-woman hate spewing from the left.

The same thing happened when “Saturday Night Live” skewered her in a deplorable body-shaming sketch.

Meanwhile, the mainstream media spent the weekend attacking the newly-appointed White House communications director for what they perceived to be sexist comments directed at Sanders.

Anthony Scaramucci told CNN’s Jake Tapper that he’s only asked one thing of Sanders.

“Sarah, if you’re watching,” he said, “I love the hair and makeup person that we had on Friday, so I’d like to continue to use the hair and makeup person.”

Critics pounced and accused Scaramucci of making comments regarding Sanders’ personal appearance. That was clearly not the case – but it did not seem to matter to the mainstream media.

His comment generated headlines in the Washington Post, The Hill, Newsweek and the list goes on and on and on.

And yet those same news outlets ignored The Daily Beast smear. It’s the kind of double standard conservative women have come to expect from the mainstream media.

Kellyanne Conway offered some sound advice to Sanders on Sunday – suggesting she ignore the “jackals and hyenas” attacking her.

Anthony Scaramucci, incoming White House communications director, shakes hands with the White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders as he takes the podium at the daily press briefing at the White House, Friday, July 21, 2017, in Washington.

“[The] irony of modern feminism is that they look right past sexist comments said about conservative women, definitely pro-life women like Sarah and me,” she told “Fox & Friends.”

Some might call Madison a thug or a bully or a small-handed guttersnipe who gets his jollies by smacking around women with cheap, misogynistic words.

And they would not be incorrect.

But if it’s all the same – I’ll just call him a sexist pig.

FLASHBACK: After Black Radical Massacred Dallas Officers, Obama Didn't Condemn Black Racism
By JAMES BARRETT
August 14, 2017 

President Donald Trump is under fire from the left for his initial failure to specifically condemn white supremacy, the KKK, or the violent Alt-Right after a white nationalist drove his car into a group of counter-protesters in Charlotttesville, Virginia on Saturday. Instead of singling out white supremacy, Trump condemned "hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides." But while Democrats and the mainstream media have suggested Trump is tacitly condoning white racists by failing to call them out by name, the reaction from the same folks to President Obama's similar response to the racially motivated Dallas massacre was very different.

In the summer of 2016, at the height of the public outrage over the high-profile police shootings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, black nationalist Micah Xavier Johnson took his sniper rifle and shot and killed five Dallas police officers. President Obama's responses to the sequence of events was widely praised by the press.

Responding to the outrage over Sterling and Castile, President Obama said their deaths were "not isolated incidents" but were "symptomatic" of a criminal justice system plagued by "racial disparities." That evening, during a Black Lives Matter rally, Johnson opened fire on Dallas police officers, shooting a dozen officers, five of whom died from their wounds. Before the police were forced to shoot him dead, he told them that he was deliberately targeting "white people, especially white officers" and that the Black Lives Matter movement had inspired his actions.

"The suspect said he was upset about Black Lives Matter; he said he was upset about the recent police shootings. The suspect said he was upset at white people. The suspect stated he wanted to kill white people, especially white officers," Dallas Police Chief David Brown told reporters.

In his initial response, Obama, like Trump, did not single out black nationalists or the movement associated with the heinous act. Instead, Obama said that he was "horrified" by the "vicious, calculated and despicable attack on law enforcement."

"There is no possible justification for these kinds of attacks or any violence against law enforcement," said Obama. "Anyone involved in the senseless murders will be held fully accountable. Justice will be done."

Obama also used the moment as an opportunity to push for more gun control. "Today is a wrenching reminder of the sacrifices they make for us," Obama said of police officers. "We also know when people are armed with powerful weapons, unfortunately, it makes attacks like these more deadly and more tragic."

(Then-presidential candidate Trump did not mention black racists or BLM in his initial statement to the massacre either, tweeting instead, "Prayers and condolences to all of the families who are so thoroughly devastated by the horrors we are all watching take place in our country." In other words, he handled it similarly to the white supremacist terror attack in Charlottesville. As for presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, she also did not specifically mention the racial movement in her response; in fact, she made sure to include the phrase "peaceful protesters" as a nod to Black Lives Matter activists, tweeting, "I mourn for the officers shot while doing their sacred duty to protect peaceful protesters, for their families & all who serve with them. -H.")

When Obama was given more time to address the Dallas massacre at the funeral of the five officers, he not only did not condemn black nationalists or radical Black Lives Matter activists, he used the platform as a way to double down on his gun control agenda, reiterate his claim that systemic racism plagues the criminal justice system, and push for more public investment in minority communities and schools. The media largely fawned over the "Lincolnesque" speech. A few excerpts from his highly political remarks:​

"I understand how Americans are feeling. But I'm here to insist that we are not as divided as we seem. And I know that because I know America.

"Centuries of racial discrimination didn't simply vanish with the end of lawful segregation. We know it. Although most of us do our best to guard against it, none of us is entirely innocent. No institution is entirely immune. That includes our police departments. We know this.

"Also, as a society, we choose to underinvest in decent schools.

"We allow poverty to fester so that entire neighborhoods offer no prospect for gainful employment.

"We refuse to fund drug treatment and mental health programs.

"We flood communities with so many guns that it is easier for a teenager to buy a Glock than get his hands on a computer or even a book.

"And then we feign surprise when, periodically, the tensions boil over.

On Monday, after being hammered for his initial response, Trump again addressed the heinous attack in Charlottesville, this time condemning white supremacists groups by name:

Racism is evil. And those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo Nazis, white supremacists and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans. We are a nation founded on the truth that all of us are created equal. We are equal in the eyes of our Creator. We are equal under the law. And we are equal under our Constitution. Those who spread violence in the name of bigotry strike at the very core of America.

Her spin on this should be pretty funny.  She's not the brightest bulb.

Nancy Pelosi's father helped dedicate Confederate monument

By Brooke Singman
Published August 24, 2017
 
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has ramped up calls to remove "reprehensible" Confederate statues from the halls of Congress -- but left unsaid in her public denunciations is that her father helped dedicate such a statue decades ago while mayor of Baltimore.

It was May 2, 1948, when, according to a Baltimore Sun article from that day, “3,000” looked on as then-Governor William Preston Lane Jr. and Pelosi’s father, the late Thomas D’Alesandro Jr., spoke at the dedication of a monument to honor Confederate generals Robert E. Lee and Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson.

The article said Lane delivered a speech, and Mayor D’Alesandro “accepted” the memorial.

“Today, with our nation beset by subversive groups and propaganda which seeks to destroy our national unity, we can look for inspiration to the lives of Lee and Jackson to remind us to be resolute and determined in preserving our sacred institutions,” D’Alesandro said in his dedication. “We must remain steadfast in our determination to preserve freedom, not only for ourselves, but for the other liberty-loving nations who are striving to preserve their national unity as free nations.”

He added: “In these days of uncertainty and turmoil, Americans must emulate Jackson’s example and stand like a stone wall against aggression in any form that would seek to destroy the liberty of the world.”

With President Trump cautioning that the drive to purge Confederate statues could represent a slippery slope, the White House has flagged Pelosi's family history as she fuels the statue opposition.

Counselor Kellyanne Conway tweeted an earlier article from RedAlertPolitics noting Pelosi's father's role.

"That's rich," she wrote.

CONFEDERATE STATUE FUROR HITS CAPITOL HILL AS PELOSI AND OTHERS SEEK REMOVAL

Last week, more than a half century after Pelosi’s father honored the Lee-Jackson monument, it was removed from its post along with three other Confederate statues in Baltimore, according to the Baltimore Sun. The removal came as numerous monuments were removed, vandalized or otherwise being debated in the wake of the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va., where a counter-protester was killed.

Pelosi’s office did not respond to Fox News’ request for comment on her father’s involvement with one of the Baltimore monuments.

But Pelosi, D-Calif., has been outspoken in fueling the backlash toward symbols of the Confederacy. Last week, she urged House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., to remove the 10 Confederate statues memorialized on Capitol Hill “immediately” if “Republicans are serious about rejecting white supremacy.”

When asked why Pelosi, after serving as House speaker for years, never pushed to remove the 10 figures, her office noted that she directed the relocation of the Robert E. Lee statue from Statuary Hall to the basement of the Capitol, known as the crypt.

“As Speaker, we relocated Robert E. Lee out of a place of honor in National Statuary Hall – a place now occupied by the statue of Rosa Parks,” Pelosi said last week.

Flashback clip shows Clinton saying illegal immigrant children ‘should be sent back’
Published September 08, 2017
Fox News

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is encouraging her supporters to “fight with everything” they've got to defend the Obama-era program that stops illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. at a young age from being deported.

But just a few years ago, in an interview that has resurfaced online, Clinton called for sending back illegal immigrant children who crossed the border to “send a clear message” that such crossings won’t be tolerated by the United States.

That interview, conducted in June 2014 on CNN, has been shared online by critics as Clinton protests President Trump’s decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program.

“We have to send a clear message, just because your child gets across the border, that doesn't mean the child gets to stay,” Clinton said at the time. “So, we don't want to send a message that is contrary to our laws or will encourage more children to make that dangerous journey.”

Clinton, though, was not speaking about DACA recipients -- rather, she was referring to the surge of illegal immigrant children crossing the border from Central America.

Clinton argued the children should be reunited with their families.

“They should be sent back,” Clinton said.

DACA recipients, often referred to as "Dreamers," generally have a longer-term connection to the U.S., having lived in the country for years and obtained work permits under the program.

Trump announced earlier this week that the program, established in 2012 by then-President Barack Obama, would be ended after six months.

PRESIDENT TRUMP'S STATEMENT ON DACA

The Trump administration argues Obama didn’t have the authority to enact the policy and says Congress should take up the issue.

Democrats, including Clinton, have expressed worries that the move will lead to the deportation of those who came out of the shadows to obtain DACA status.
“No time to waste - we've got to fight with everything we've got to #DefendDACA,” Clinton said this week.

Obama cashes in on Wall Street appearances, report says
Fox News
President Obama set to cash in from Wall Street
But didn't he call them 'fat cats'?

Former President Barack Obama has been a busy man.

Obama, last month, addressed clients of Northern Trust Corp. in New York to a tune of $400,000, Bloomberg reported, citing a person familiar with the appearance.

The report said Obama, last week, also met with the private equity giant the Carlyle Group—which was unreported-- and spoke about his time as president. He is reportedly due to deliver a keynote at a Cantor Fitzgerald health-care conference.

Ken Lewis, a spokesman for Obama, told Bloomberg that he gives speeches that are “true to his values.”

“His paid speeches in part have allowed President Obama to contribute $2 million to Chicago programs offering job training and employment opportunities to low-income youth,” he said.

Fox Business reported in April about Obama’s upcoming speeches. Another spokesman told FBN that Obama—as a candidate—pulled in more money than any candidate in history, and went on to “implement the toughest reforms on Wall Street since FDR.”

In 2009, Obama famously lashed out at bankers, calling them “fat cats” who don’t get it.

“I did not run for office to be helping out a bunch of fat cat bankers on wall Street,” he told “60 Minutes "They're still puzzled why is it that people are mad at the banks. Well, let's see," he said. "You guys are drawing down $10, $20 million bonuses after America went through the worst economic year that it's gone through in -- in decades, and you guys caused the problem. And we've got 10 percent unemployment."

The Wall Street Journal at the time described the relationship between the White House and Wall Street as “frosty from the start.”

Sean Coffey, a Democratic donor, told Bloomberg, “Not everyone’s going to be a Jimmy Carter, who does purely good works after he gets out. “I don’t think getting any grief for doing this is going to bother him at all.”

They all knew this dude was a pervert and said nothing.  Accepted his money.  Propped him up.  Then were outraged when Trump engaged in locker room talk. 

Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow And Others Say Harvey Weinstein Harassed Them
“I had a bad experience with Harvey Weinstein in my youth,” Jolie told The New York Times.
By Jenna Amatulli

On Tuesday, The New York Times published reports from several A-list celebrities including Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow, Rosanna Arquette and more to add to the mounting allegations against film executive Harvey Weinstein.

This new report details instances of Weinstein luring women “to a private place to discuss films, scripts or even Oscar campaigns,” trying “to initiate massages,” touching them inappropriately, taking off his clothes in their presence or offering them “explicit work-for-sex deals.”

Angelina Jolie told the publication that during the late-’90s release of “Playing by Heart,” Weinstein “made unwanted advances on her in a hotel room, which she rejected.”

“I had a bad experience with Harvey Weinstein in my youth, and as a result, chose never to work with him again and warn others when they did,” Jolie said in an email to the Times. “This behavior towards women in any field, any country is unacceptable.”

Gwyneth Paltrow told the Times that she was invited to Weinstein’s suite at the Peninsula Beverly Hills hotel for a work meeting shortly after the producer hired her as the lead in the Jane Austen adaptation “Emma” at age 22.

Paltrow claims Weinstein put his hands on her, attempted to massage her, and invited her to his bedroom. Paltrow left immediately and told her boyfriend at the time, Brad Pitt, about it. Pitt subsequently went to Weinstein at a movie premiere and “told him never to touch Ms. Paltrow again.”

Paltrow said Weinstein’s backlash after that episode was “brutal,” adding that Weinstein screamed at her “for a long time.” She feared losing her role in “Emma,” but “insisted that he put the relationship back on professional footing.”

In addition to Jolie and Paltrow, Rosanna Arquette recounted a time when she said Weinstein asked her to “stop by the Beverly Hills Hotel to pick up a script for a role.” After being “told to head upstairs, which she found odd,” she found Weinstein in a bathrobe, “complaining of neck pain and asking for a massage.”

Arquette said “she tried to recommend a professional masseuse, but Mr. Weinstein grabbed her hand and pulled it toward his crotch.” She immediately withdrew from the interaction, causing Weinstein to boast about “the famous actresses he had supposedly slept with.” He then said, “‘Rosanna, you’re making a big mistake.’” In response, Arquette said to Weinstein that she wasn’t “that girl.”

“I will never be that girl,” she said as she left the hotel. She didn’t get the part she went to get the script for.

The New York Times first detailed numerous accusations of sexual assault against the producer late last week.

Imagine the outcry if the owner of a bakery talked to a gay couple like this.

Gay coffee shop owner kicks Christians out of cafe, goes on vulgar rant — it was all caught on video

A Seattle, Washington coffee shop owner kicked a group of Christians out of his shop last week because their presence was “offensive” to him.

What were they doing there?
The group had been handing out booklets to Seattle citizens which addressed sin, the Bible, and abortion.

According to The Liberator, the group decided to take a break and stop for coffee at nearby coffee shop, Bedlam Coffee.

The site reported that one of the baristas told the owner what the Christian group had been doing outside on the streets of Seattle, and he didn’t take it well.

What did he say?
The owner, in the video, approaches the Christian group and tells them they have to leave.

“I’m gay, you have to leave,” he said. “This is offensive to me. I own the place. I have the right to be offended.”

The group attempted to tell the owner that they hadn’t left any of their pamphlets in his shop, but the owner wasn’t hearing any of it.

Repeatedly telling them to “shut up,” the owner said, “There’s nothing you can say. This is you and I don’t want these people in this place.”

The Christians pressed the owner as to why he is so opposed to their presence in the shop, and that’s when things got extraordinarily vulgar.

“Can you tolerate my presence? Really?” the owner asked. “If I go get my boyfriend and f**k him in the a** right here you’re going to tolerate that? Are you going to tolerate it?”

Becoming increasingly agitated, the owner yelled, “Answer my f***ing question! No, you’re going to sit right here and f***ing watch it! Leave, all of you! Tell all your f**king friends don’t come here!”

As the group begins collecting their belongings to leave, one of the women in the group addresses the owner directly and tells him, “Just know that Christ can save you from that lifestyle.”

“Yeah, I like a**,” the owner spat. “I’m not going to be saved by anything. I’d f**k Christ in the a**. Okay? He’s hot.”

As the group left the shop, one of the women in the group told the owner that she would be praying for him.

The video, shared by Facebook account Abolish Human Abortion, has received over 400 views at the time of this writing.

*face palm*

Hillary Clinton calls Trump 'sexual assaulter' in BBC interview, but says Bill's behavior 'in the past'
By Alex Pappas, Fox News

Hillary Clinton moved to take the heat off Harvey Weinstein Friday by outright calling President Trump a “sexual assaulter” – while roundly dismissing past allegations of sexual impropriety against her husband as old news.

Clinton made the comments during an interview with BBC's Andrew Marr, who asked about the allegations of sexual assault made against Democratic mega-donor and Hollywood producer Weinstein.

“This kind of behavior cannot be tolerated anywhere, whether it's in entertainment, politics,” Clinton said. “After all, we have someone admitting to being a sexual assaulter in the Oval Office.”

Marr responded by pointing out Clinton has dismissed allegations made by women against her husband, former President Bill Clinton, that Trump highlighted during the hard-fought presidential campaign.

“That has all been litigated,” Clinton replied. “That was subject of a huge investigation in the late '90s and there were conclusions drawn. That was clearly in the past.”

CLINTONS NOT SPEAKING TO EACH OTHER AFTER FIGHT, AUTHOR SAYS

Clinton, in her accusation against Trump, was referring to the infamous "Access Hollywood" tape of Trump in 2005 in which he said he can “do anything” to women as a star, including grabbing “them by the p----.” Trump later apologized for his comments and called it “locker room talk” but has never admitted to sexual assault.

After the video surfaced in October 2016, Trump held a press conference with Paula Jones, Kathleen Willey and Juanita Broaddrick, who had all accused Bill Clinton of sexual misconduct in the past.

In the latest interview, Clinton expressed disappointment the "Access Hollywood" tape didn’t sink Trump in the campaign.

“The really sad part of the campaign was how this horrific tape, what he said about women in the past, what he said about women during the campaign, was discounted by a lot of voters,” she said.

Clinton, who is on a tour promoting her memoir about the campaign, also said she was “really shocked and appalled” at the recent revelations about Weinstein.

“He's been a supporter -- he's been a funder for all of us, for Obama, for me, for people who have run for office in the United States,” she said. “So it was just disgusting and the stories that have come out are heartbreaking. And I really commend the women who have been willing to step forward now and tell their stories.”

Weinstein has raised thousands for the Clintons.

A White House spokesman did not return a request for comment.

But earlier this week, White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway called Clinton a "hypocrite" on women's issues.

“She needs to not be a hypocrite about women’s empowerment and what it means to be pro-woman,” Conway told Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom.” “She is on a book tour talking about herself and a campaign she lost—not talking about women’s empowerment, she’s not trying to help victims of sexual assault.”

Conway also blasted Clinton for taking five days to release a statement condemning Weinstein: "I felt like a woman who ran to be commander-in-chief and president of the United States, who talks about women’s empowerment, took an awfully long time to give support to these women."
