It's All She Has: Hillary Clinton PAC Accuses Marco Rubio of "Mansplaining"

She hasn't done anything, she hasn't accomplished anything, and she has nothing to her credit, except for four dead Americans and a thick passel of lies.

So all she has is the But I'm a Girrrrrl card.

And she'll play it forever. And ever. And ever.

The quote her PAC takes out of context was an anodyne statement from Rubio, explaining his finances to Becky Quick, who interrogated him about them, that he'd had to "explain" to his wife why Sally Mae was taking $1000 out of his account every month.

For Hillary's PAC, that becomes "mansplaining" to the little woman.

The attack from Priorities USA--a step short of calling the surging Republican sexist--stemmed from his comments in which Rubio said he struggled to explain his student loan debt to his wife after they were married.

The 15-second video takes the longer quote out of context, as Rubio was under pressure to explain his family’s financial choices during the debate.

The video, which is already drawing criticism on Twitter from Republicans, appears targeted to rile up Clinton’s democratic base, rather than appealing to independent voters.

It reveals the extent of the Clinton allies' worry about the potential matchup between the charismatic and youthful Rubio--whom Jeb Bush’s campaign has termed the "GOP Obama" --- against the former [old, ugly, fat and drunk] Secretary of State.

Meanwhile, they don't talk about the real patriarchy. In Egypt, for example, a woman was seen on video being assaulted by a man; on Egyptian TV, a presenter asked her if she was "dressed appropriately" and if that might have prompted her beating.

The woman was just wearing jeans and a sleeveless shirt, without any cleavage.

The TV presenter also appears to be a woman.

But she knows who writes her checks.
