In the many years we’ve been covering politics on Twitter (the many MANY years), we have yet to see anyone who struggles to articulate why they dislike Nancy Pelosi or Hillary Clinton. Most people have a laundry list of policies, events, behaviors, talking points etc. that they can name off at the drop of a hat if they are asked about why they don’t like these Democrat dinosaurs.
And if Poli-Sci Professor Jennifer Victor had just ASKED why people dislike Nancy and Hillary things would have gone much more smoothly for her … but she didn’t.
Don’t like Pelosi, but can’t quite articulate why? Felt the same way about Hillary Clinton? Time for some deep self-reflection about gender bias and leadership.

Because you know, clearly the only reason anyone would dislike Hill-dawg and Nancy is because of gender bias.
You're the reason why young people are so scatter brained. Political science isn't real "science" and it's a worthless academic field.
People don't like #HillaryClinton because she wears her sociopathy on her sleeve.

Feel the same way about her as I do about Harry Reid. So put your gender card away.

Even the Left doesn’t care for these two ladies … is that still a gender bias thing or do we just assume that for people on the Right?
I can 100% articulate why I don't care for either of them. It starts with the DLC and ends with the biggest wealth inequality since the gilded age. Pelosi won't back Medicare for All and touts her biggest strength as fundraising from oligarchs and honestly the list goes on and on

Oh, I can articulate why on both of these people… ?

All of my votes for Nikki Haley say you’re a clown.
Time for reflection on how people don’t like clowns.

Republican women don’t count, silly.
This is why a lot us think SJWs are a joke.

I know exactly why I don’t care for either. Gender doesn’t guarantee character.

I've never met anyone who was unable to articulate the myriad of reasons. If your first response to someone disliking a politician's policy ideals is to assume it's based on sex, it's time for some deep reflection on your intellectual capabilities and propensity for hysterics.

What are you saying? Give them a pass on being despicable human beings just because they are female? That's sexism.

I’ll take “problems nobody has” for $1,000 Alex.

Welp, if the good professor was indeed worried people couldn’t articulate why they don’t like Nancy and Hillary she learned otherwise.
