Hillary On The Attack - Slams Everything Trump Has Done, Takes Spicer To Task

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made her first major public appearance since losing the 2016 election to President Donald Trump. Clinton was invited to speak in San Francisco at the Professional Businesswomen of California Conference. Clinton had nothing but Criticism for the POTUS and his press secretary.

Clinton was finally able to joke about her crushing loss in November, saying that 'other than the White House', there was no place she would rather be. She then proceeded to slam the GOP on issue after issue, particularly hitting hard on the Trump administration's treatment of women.

According to Clinton, representation of women in top jobs in Washington are 'the lowest in a generation'. She claims that she was appalled at photos recently circulated in the news that show Republican lawmakers-- all men-- gathered around a table negotiating health care legislation for women. She commented about a meme that parodies the moment, featuring a panel of all dogs making laws about feline care.

Clinton had some scathing criticism for the White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer as well, though she did not mention him by name. She brought up a recent incident at a press conference when Spicer argued with journalist April Ryan. Ryan asked a question and as Spicer tried to give answers, she continued talking and shaking her head. Spicer asked her to stop and listen.

Clinton says Ryan was shut down for doing her job.

"April Ryan, a respected journalist with unrivaled integrity, was doing her job just this afternoon in the White House press room when she was patronized and cut off trying to ask a question," Clinton said.

"One of your own California congresswomen, Maxine Waters, was taunted with a racist joke about her hair," she adds. Waters has been outraged by Trump's win, and has been calling for the president's impeachment for months.

"Now too many women, especially women of color, have had a lifetime of practice taking precisely these kinds of indignities in stride. But why should we have to? And any woman who thinks this couldn't be directed at her is living in a dream world," Clinton continued. "I mean, it's not like I didn't know all the nasty things they were saying about me. I thought some of them were kind of creative. But you just have to keep going."

There’s been some buzz that Clinton might be considering a third bid for the presidency in 2020; if this is true, then this might be considered her first campaign speech.
