During an interview on Chelsea Handler’s Netflix talk show, the 82-year-old feminist — who said young women supported Bernie Sanders so they could meet boys — said the American people are “punishing” Clinton over her pneumonia diagnosis.

“First we punish [Hillary] for being too vulnerable to be president and then we punish her for being not vulnerable enough. It’s so frustrating. I can’t bear it. I really can’t bear it.”

Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton coughs during a Labor Day rally September 5, 2016 in Cleveland, Ohio. Hillary Clinton launched the home stretch of her US presidential bid aiming to solidify her advantages over rival Donald Trump, with both candidates converging on working-class Ohio as ground zero of their 2016 campaign battle

“I mean, we weren’t for Sarah Palin because she was a woman,” Steinem continued. “Hello! It’s not about biology. It’s about people who stand for the majority dreams and concerns and so on. And if they also have the experience of walking around for a lifetime as an African-American person, a female person, a gay or lesbian, it helps — because they can empathize. But it’s the representation and the issues that come first.”

“I think [mental] health and sanity plays a factor, which is why we don’t need Trump.”
