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.
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.
