Quote of the Day

Donald Trump appears not to think much before opening his mouth, a quality his supporters deem not scary but "refreshing."  They apparently see Trump as expressing all the angry, ugly thoughts they're afraid to say out loud themselves.  Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton is forced by the sexist norms and constraints of our society to overthink every word she utters and every move she makes.  Sure, you can say that Hillary has a cautious or non-transparent personality if you want, but bear in mind that her personality was shaped by decades in politics and the public eye in the very crucible of constant sexist condemnation.
-- Sally Kohn, "Trump's 'size' is now a campaign issue. How's Hillary Clinton supposed to deal with that?"
