The world was stunned last week when former first lady Nancy Reagan passed away at the age of 94. Afterwards, Hillary Clinton made a rare classy move when she paid tribute to Reagan. However, Clinton then quickly reminded us just how shameless of a liberal she really is…
Democrat presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton’s willingness to pander shamelessly to the despicable crackpots who support her reached a new high — or low — this week when she issued a sick apology to them for saying something nice about late former First Lady Nancy Reagan.
“It may be hard for your viewers to remember how difficult it was for people to talk about HIV/AIDS in the 1980s,” Clinton said Friday, according to The Daily Caller.
She added, “With (Nancy Reagan’s) very effective, low-key advocacy … it penetrated the public consciousness and people began to say, ‘We have to do something about this too.’”
Those kind words of truth apparently ticked off her supporters, including hate-monger Dan Savage, who responded in rage by slamming Clinton for praising a woman whom he believed possessed a “homophobic, hateful, appalling, murderous record on HIV/AIDS.”
Rather than stick up for the deceased first lady, however, Clinton chose to issue a pitiful apology via Twitter.
“While the Reagans were strong advocates for stem cell research and finding a cure for Alzheimer’s disease, I misspoke about their record on HIV and AIDs,” she wrote. “For that, I’m sorry.”
How utterly pathetic, especially given that on Feb. 6, 1986, President Ronald Reagan announced that he intended to make AIDS one of the “highest public health priorities,” according to The New York Times.
Hateful critics like Savage argue that both Nancy and Ronald Reagan waited for five years to bring up the issue, and while that happens to be true, even Clinton admitted that AIDS was incredibly taboo during that time in American history.
Nearly everybody, from legislators to media pundits, refrained from talking about AIDS due to its connection to the homosexual lifestyle, which at that point in time was frowned upon by most Americans.
It took a while for the Reagans to speak out about AIDS, but eventually they did, and the movement they spurred went on to help save countless lives.
While Clinton tends to be a pretty unsavory individual, her initial comments about Nancy Reagan were spot-on. By withdrawing them and issuing a sick apology, she did nothing more than malign one of the greatest first ladies in American history.
She also made it clear to America why she does not deserve to be in the White House.
