Feminist Icon Gloria Steinem Apologizes After Saying Young Women Only Support Bernie Sanders To Impress 'Boys'!
This is probably not a smart move…
After causing a huge controversy over the weekend by asserting women who support presidential candidate Bernie Sanders are only doing so to impress "boys," feminist icon Gloria Steinem has apologized.
On Friday night during an appearance on Real Time with host Bill Maher, Steinem's initial comment about girls supporting Sanders instead of Hillary Clinton fell VERY flat:
"When you're young, you're thinking, ‘Where are the boys? The boys are with Bernie.'"
WTF? What kind of patronizing crap is that??
Maher leapt on her comment immediately during the show, responding:
