Donald Trump has admitted to having affairs.
Hillary Clinton’s husband had an affair.
But somehow, instead of going to either Donald Trump or Bill Clinton for comment on their own actions, the media is now focusing on Hillary Clinton.
I’ve just watched CNN spend half an hour talking about how Hillary Clinton should respond to Donald Trump’s latest attack, an attack based on the actions of Bill Clinton. Trump’s hypocrisy aside, the coverage has been deeply troubling, and is another example of the sexist double standards that still exist in our society, double standards that Trump is now exploiting for political gain.
Bill Clinton and Donald Trump must answer for their past actions, not Hillary Clinton. It’s time for the media to realize this and put an end to sexist double standards.
