On November 8th, American voters elected, not the first female president of the United States — an exceedingly qualified, tough, smart woman named Hillary Rodham Clinton — but a sociopathic reality TV star whose racism, misogyny, and stubborn ignorance made his run seem like little more than a bad joke… Until it was too late.

With many of us still reeling at this new reality in the U.S., we’re wondering how this happened and what to do next.

In this episode, I speak with Sarah Slamen, a political consultant and women’s rights activist based out of Houston, Texas. Sarah worked for Bernie Sanders and cast a vote on Tuesday for Hillary Clinton.

    I don’t know of any other site like this one anywhere…. But maybe others can recommend something good? WoLF is an organization you could look up though, to connect with radical feminists?

    Are you on drugs?

      No I’m not on drugs. White men are blaming Trump’s victory on “identity” politics including your male savior Bernie Sanders. They harassed women and black people the entire primary. Do you have progressive amnesia?

        Our male savior?
        Yeah you’re definitely on drugs…

    • Dear Prudence

      White men are blaming “identity policies” (women and black people) for electing Trump. What about that implies I’m “on drugs?”
      Maybe since you’re not from the US you don’t have the capacity to understand.
