More “pearls of wisdom” from Hillary Clinton’s new book “what happened” states that she was made to spend hundreds of hours getting her makeup and hair done because we’re all really really sexist, you guys…
“I’m not jealous of my male colleagues often, but I am when it comes to how they can just shower, shave, put on a suit and be ready to go. The few times I’ve gone out in public without makeup, it’s made the news,” she wrote, according to Newsweek magazine. She says she was “shocked” to discover how much time and money it took to get her “television ready.”
Apparently, in the time since she was First Lady, the nation’s Patriarchy has expanded exponentially, driving women to spend hours and hours fixing their hair and putting on their face, lest their husbands and other male members of society see them in their natural state, and immediately ramp up their oppression.
Clinton, however, was “forced” to prep for hours in advance of any media appearance, and spend thousands of dollars on ill-fitting coats and terribly tailored pantsuits, just so she could be “taken seriously” by a media that was booking hotel rooms for her coronation back in August of 2015.
It takes a lot of effort, Clinton writes, “just to be a woman in the public eye.”
Republican women candidates, like Carly Fiorina, on the other hand, were viciously mocked for their hair and makeup – and Clinton, whose “feminism” is limited to an embrace of only her own ideological sisters, made nary a peep.
There’s also the matter of personal choice: Angela Merkel and Theresa May are often pictured without makeup (though May is never pictured without fabulous shoes), and Clinton has long been vocal about breaking the mold. Back when she was First Lady, she openly insulted women who stay home with their children, claiming they did little but “bake cookies and have teas,” as though she was somehow better than America’s domestic engineers. She didn’t have to spend 600 hours getting painted and coiffed if she didn’t want to.
