Gender politics for me, but not for thee? That’s the Hillary way.
Here’s what she had to say earlier:
TIME: Clinton says Fiorina shouldn’t get a pass because she’s a woman http://t.co/t495mejGIj

More from TIME:
Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton says Republican rival Carly Fiorina should not be judged any differently just because she is the only woman candidate in the Republican presidential race.
“I’m always in favor of women running,” she told TIME in an exclusive interview. “But people need to hold women’s policies up to light and determine what their answers to problems would be before deciding to support them. I’m willing to subject myself to that process and try to earn every vote; I assume any woman running would do the same.”
Ah, but Hillary is not just any woman. Which is why she thinks that she should be judged differently because she’s a woman. Her woman-ness is one of her merits, you see:

Don’t focus on her record! Focus on her ladyhood. That’s what really matters.
@HillaryClinton How is being a woman a merit?
— Politically Hank (@LogicallyHank) October 12, 2015
@HillaryClinton surely, if you believe in gender equality. Being a man or a woman has equal merits, no?
— Harry Pratt (@HarryUoL) October 12, 2015
@HillaryClinton Does that mean that it is a lack of merit to not be a woman? Cause that sounds sort of sexist.

@HillaryClinton being a woman is not a merit. It is what it is. Sheesh.

"Don't vote for me because I'm a woman, vote based on my merits (dems don't do this anyway) like that I'm a woman…" smh @HillaryClinton

@HillaryClinton is this a joke? Can you imagine if a man claimed being male as a "merit"?! Shows just how lacking in substance she really is
— The Pretty One (@Th3Pr3ttyOne) October 12, 2015
Yes, a very white woman but isn't that sexist ? Imagine a man saying that. Got anything else ? Anything ?

@HillaryClinton How stupid, it's not about gender!

@HillaryClinton You could become an honest woman and that would help people of all gender persuasions, no?

Hillary? Honest? Fat chance.
@HillaryClinton you realize how idiotic you sound right?

In a word, Hillary:
