Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is back with an important message — not only is climate change real and important, it is very sexist.


“I would say that particularly for women, you’re absolutely right, they will bear the brunt of looking for the  food, looking for the firewood, looking for the place to migrate to when all of the grass is finally gone as the desertification moves south and you have to keep moving your livestock for your crops are no longer growing, they’re burning up in the intense heat that we’re now seeing reported across North Africa, into the Middle East, and into India.”

“So yes, women once again, will be the primary…primarily burdened with the problems of climate change.”

At this same event at Georgetown University, Clinton complained of the sexism and misogyny she believed influenced Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign.

“Some of it was old fashioned sexism and a refusal to accept the equality of women and certainly the equality of women’s leadership,” she said. “And some of it as an outgrowth of all of this anxiety and insecurity that is playing on people and leading them in a hunt for scapegoats.” (RELATED: Clinton: Misogyny And Sexism Played A Role In Trump’s Campaign)
