Thursday night, Hillary Clinton officially became the first female in American history to become the presidential nominee of a major political party. It was a historic night for women in politics, and to the surprise of absolutely no one, the gross men of social media were out in full force to ruin it all.
During her historic speech, Hillary was inundated with tweets from dudes commenting on—what else?—her smile. Seriously, guys?
Political and foreign policy blogger Steve Clemons offered up this critique of Hillary's speech, suggesting that she should've smiled more.
Thankfully, Clemons later saw the error in his ways and apologized.
For those of u stopping by to note my unintended sexist comment that @HillaryClinton should smile I completely apologize 1/2— Steve Clemons (@SCClemons) July 29, 2016
and regret the comment. I admire HRC & Tripped clumsily in critique. While I thought she did lecture too much, like Obama does, spch good— Steve Clemons (@SCClemons) July 29, 2016
