Oprah Winfrey has been a champion for liberal causes for years. Discrimination, racism and sexism are among the positions he has stated strong support for. So, it comes as a bit of surprise that her recent endorsement of Hillary Clinton for President because she’s a woman strikes like classic sexism.
According to The Blaze:
Oprah Winfrey has endorsed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton for president.
“Regardless of your politics, it’s a seminal moment for women,” Winfrey told ET. “What this says is, there is no ceiling, that ceiling just went boom. It says anything is possible when you can be leader of the free world.”
Winfrey went on to say that she believes the U.S. is about to elect the first woman president in the country’s history.
“It’s about time that we make that decision,” the venerable talk show host said.
Winfrey was once floated as a possible vice presidential pick for presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump, though the real estate mogul later said that was a joke.
It’s interesting that she uses the term ‘regardless of your politics’ when referring to Clinton. Yet, it’s easy to see that if the first woman nominee was a Republican, she’d probably be quiet on the subject.
Voting for someone just because of their sex seems like classic sexism. But, apparently, since Hillary is a Liberal, it’s okay?
