Oh Boy, Hillary Stepped In It, Didn’t She?

This was one helluva unforced error. Hillary Clinton at Nancy Reagan’s funeral praised the former First Lady for her voice in speaking out about AIDS and awareness.

Say what?

Those of us who were in the trenches during the 80’s and 90’s remember those years with clarity and Nancy Reagan (nor her beloved Ronnie) wasn’t an ally. In fact, their silence on AIDS was what bred the “Silence = Death” activism.

Nice going Hillary. You just lost a huge swathe of queer folks who were waffling between you and Bernie Sanders.

About Sharon Cho

As a child, I was sickly and so spent countless hours in bed with only my imagination to accompany me. 50 years later, my imagination demanded that I write things down and offer it to folks and so here I am, sharing my stories. Hope you enjoy.

  1. That’s a big slip and not easily corrected, if at all. Still, as an observer from the UK, any President whose name doesn’t start with “Tr” and end with “ump” is an okay state to exist. Demagogy at its best, in fact, having observed demagogy at its best in Greece, he is above and beyond any existing or past demagogue.

    How are you, Sharon? How’s your writing going?

    • Still non-existent at this point but getting closer.

      As for Clinton, we still like her. It’s just she’s asking for votes and making a gaffe like this doesn’t do her any favors.

      • Yeah that’s understandable. That was a massive slip on her part. I think the entire world is watching the US Presidential campaign nervously. I know I am and I am usually avoiding politics. Still, this time I’m like “please not Trump” and such. Anyone but him. He scares the hell out of me and I don’t even live there.

        All my comments are visible again. Better use my WordPress address from now on as it seems to be allergic to all my other emails.

      • Forgot to say: hope you get your writing mojo back soon. I want to read the next installment in the series. 😀

  2. Tried leaving a comment but not sure what happened. WordPress is weird on me these days. 😀

  3. She’s apologised for the gaffe. MY other two comments disappeared, WordPress hates me today. *sigh*
