Hillary Clinton Goes Viral On ‘Humans Of New York’

Share

Hillary Clinton recently spoke to Brandon Stanton, the photographer behind Humans of New York, and recounted an experience where she was taking an admissions test for law school and was heckled by several men.

She described the scene on the Humans of New York Facebook page: “And while we’re waiting for the exam to start, a group of men began to yell things like: ‘You don’t need to be here.’ And ‘There’s plenty else you can do.’ It turned into a real ‘pile on.’ One of them even said: ‘If you take my spot, I’ll get drafted, and I’ll go to Vietnam, and I’ll die.’”

“It was intense,” she continued. “It got very personal. But I couldn’t respond. I couldn’t afford to get distracted because I didn’t want to mess up the test. So I just kept looking down, hoping that the proctor would walk in the room.”

Clinton, who has been the target of much sexist commentary during this election cycle, explained how this scene impacted her future poise: “I know that I can be perceived as aloof or cold or unemotional. But I had to learn as a young woman to control my emotions.”

    It’s kinda hard reading about such abusiveness but not unbelievable as it’s still in effect to this day seeing as how she’s being treated by her competitors and haters.

    I believe her “draft “story as much as I believe her story about being named after Sir Edmund Hillary. The latter was proven to be a whopper of a lie by simply checking her birthdate which was 6 years before Sir Edmund even became a known celebrity and I would bet my house that her “draft” story is just as manufactured as the source of her name. She’s a congenital liar, it’s part of her very DNA, so anything she says, including giving you the time of day, has to be immediately considered a lie.
