Hillary Clinton apologized Friday for praising the late Nancy Reagan’s response to the 1980s AIDS crisis on the day of the former first lady’s funeral.
Hillary had said, “It may be hard for your viewers to remember how difficult it was for people to talk about HIV/AIDS in the 1980s.” Clinton added, “With [Nancy’s] very effective, low-key advocacy…it penetrated the public consciousness and people began to say: we have to do something about this too.”
The comments were not well received on the Left.
