Ellen Whines over ‘Amazing’ Hillary Being Held to ‘Different Standard’ (NewsBusters)

During her softball interview with Democratic vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine on Monday, self-avowed Hillary Clinton supporter Ellen DeGeneres bemoaned a supposed double standard against the former Secretary of State: “So Hillary is, it seems – and I've said this before – that she is held to a different standard than Donald Trump is. Would you agree with that?”

Kaine predictably agreed: “Yeah, I think that's true.” DeGeneres continued: “...because she’s an amazing woman but there's so much judgment on her charm, her personality, whatever...” Kaine lamented: “Do you smile enough? You know, ‘She doesn't look presidential, does she fellas?’ Which is, you know, what Donald Trump said.... But that is a challenge that she's had to deal with her whole life and she's got to deal with today.”
