Hillary Clinton has repeatedly criticized Trump as a bad role model for girls while holding herself up as a symbol of feminism. How is a rapper who sings “I got 99 problems but a b**ch ain’t one” a good example for girls?
Back in 2008, liberals hated Hillary Clinton because she represented a threat to Obama so it was OK for them to demean and insult her. In fact, the Obama campaign used Jay Z’s offensive song at a victory event in 2008.
The Huffington Post reported:
At Obama Victory Event, Campaign Played Jay-Z’s “99 Problems (But A Bitch Ain’t One)”
PRESIDENTIAL hopeful Barack Obama claims to run a clean campaign, but someone in his camp took a swipe at Hillary Clinton through the candidate’s theme song.
As Obama and his wife, Michelle, strolled triumphantly into his victory party in Des Moines, Iowa, on Jan. 3, Jay-Z’s “99 Problems” was blaring. In it, Jay raps, “I got 99 problems, but a bitch ain’t one.”
Some listeners took it as a not-so-sly reference to Hillary.
“We didn’t know he used that,” a shocked Clinton spokesperson said.
Flash forward to 2016 and everything is different.
Now it’s OK for Jay Z to do benefits for Hillary. CNN reports:
Jay Z to headline concert for Hillary Clinton
Rapper Jay Z will headline a concert for Hillary Clinton in Cleveland before Election Day, according to a Clinton aide.
The event — which aides expect will draw thousands — is part of an ongoing series of concerts that aim to motivate young people to turn out for Clinton the way they turned out for Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012.
Jay Z’s event is targeted specifically at young black voters, an electoral demographic that has been reluctant to rally around Clinton, in part, because of comments she made in the 1990s and her support of President Bill Clinton’s crime bill.
No hypocrisy to see here, folks. Move along.
