“I just can’t put him and Barack Obama in the same sentence, same room, same job description.”

You're not alone

“a very friendly guy, charismatic in that boastful, macho, alpha-male way.”

Isn't that kinda what you are Madonna?

Madonna is spot on in this case.

Well, Madonna, best stick to pulling down your pants during concerts. Hillary didnt lose because she was a woman. She lost because she was Hillary and so many people who ordinarily wouldve voted democrat just cant stand her. The democratic party probably would have won with any ither candidate (including a woman).

9 ( +11 / -2 )

I didn't support either candidate but I don't like people only voting someone because of physical appearances or fame. Yes, let's vote for Clinton so she can be the 1st woman president. Her policies/scandals don't matter but she is a woman and that is all that matters. I am sure Trump got a lot of fame votes too.

6 ( +7 / -1 )

In my opinion, those who voted for Hillary hate women more.

0 ( +8 / -8 )

It could also be said that some women love powerful and abusive men,same as how a lot of women are attracted to bad guys.

I guess it comes down to what Hillary tried to do while her husband was in office. Health care. Hmmm, that doesn't make sense. I guess it had to do with her voting record as a senator. Hmm. Well, maybe it was her what? You gonna claim Begazi was all her fault and not the firewall between it and her office? Why didn't the blame go to the secretary of defense? I remember my mother, (white and 90) saying some years ago she couldn't stand female journalists or politicians. Then again, Sarah Palin was a governor. Maybe it all comes down to perk.

There is a long list of things I don't like about Clinton.

She voted for the war in Iraq, she supported TPP (until it was an election year) and she is very friendly with Wall Street and I suspect owes people there favors. Worse of all she cheated to win the primary and then rewarded Wasserman Schultz for helping her do it.

Then there are the e-mails and a lot of other things I don't have time to list.

She lost to Trump because she was a very bad candidate.

Probably not far from the truth. In the work environment women will quite happily stab another woman in the back before they would a male worker.

Dre Hund, youre very selective in what hillary did. Just her nasty, duplitious performance in the primaries ( let alone all the other pre campaign stuff) was enough to signal what kind of person she really is.

1 ( +3 / -2 )

♂ vs ♀, white vs black, blah blah blah Trump won because he is a man? No, it was exactly because of people like you that half of the country can't stand anymore.

1 ( +3 / -2 )

No, it was exactly because of people like you that half of the country can't stand anymore.

It wasn't even half the voters, much less half the country.

"They just can’t be heads of state,” said Madonna.“

Because she's some kind of authority figure? Lolz.

-2 ( +3 / -5 )

strangerland, you still pedalling that irrelevant line? Even Ms Ego hillary doesnt go there. haha.

-4 ( +1 / -5 )

actually Hillary won the popular vote. misogyny is a popular word recently that few seem to understand. belongs more properly in lands such as afghanistan or pakistan. using it so freely makes it meaningless.

4 ( +5 / -1 )

Reckless, the "progressive" regressives on this site have no problem cheapening the meaning of words if they think it serves their golden gal hillary.

-2 ( +1 / -3 )

Madonna is really showing her ignorance. their have been many female elected leaders in the world. even in that muslim island of enlightenment pakistan.

-3 ( +1 / -4 )

their have been many female elected leaders in the world. even in that muslim island of enlightenment pakistan.

And yet none in America, which Americans generally consider to be enlightened.

-1 ( +4 / -5 )

Well, strangerland, if the dems had selected a viable female candidate she probably would have won. Selecting a candidate as loathed as hillary was sheer stupidity and the dems got what they deserved. but blaming "mysoginy" for the hillary debacle is laughable.

2 ( +4 / -2 )

Well, strangerland, if the dems had selected a viable female candidate she probably would have won.

Well, if she hadn't had a multi-year smear campaign run against her over a non-existent email issue, she probably would have won. The question is whether the smear campaign was born of misogyny, or just anti-liberalism.

I don't presume to know. Neither do I call the fact that she won a significantly larger number of votes, but won't be selected by the electoral college, as misogyny.

-4 ( +2 / -6 )

get real. she couldnt even refrain from dirty tricks and corruption against bernie in the primaries for petes sake, and THAT cost her the votes of those who maybe would have grudgingly voted for her. smear campaign? with the whole biased "liberal" media going overboard to get her elected? whoa!

2 ( +4 / -2 )

They were successful in getting people to like her more than Trump, and in getting most voters (by a long shot) to vote for her over Trump.

-3 ( +3 / -6 )

I'll say this; given the avalanche of media bias agaist trump and for hillary during the whole campaign it is a real testament to trumps ability that he won. that is undeniable.

1 ( +3 / -2 )

It was balanced against the smear campaign made against Hillary, that both side's media played endlessly. That's the only reason he won.

-3 ( +3 / -6 )

there was no balance. everybody knows that!

1 ( +3 / -2 )

Sure there was - the absolutely ridiculous things he said were balanced out by the things they said about her, which enabled him get enough electoral college votes to win (but not as many votes from the people of course).

Election is done, get over it

Madonna is so very right.Jealousy at its pettiest.53% of women voted for Trump. And I don't wanna hear any BS about his policies.His decency as a man is a disgrace and the women who voted for this serial philanderer,thrice married, sexist dick should hang their heads in shame.What did the suffragettes go through all they did just for you to show your bad heart?

-1 ( +2 / -3 )

"Madonna is voicing despair over Donald Trump’s election victory...."

No doubt.

"... and blamed women, saying they had a “tribal inability” to accept a female president."

No, they had a tribal inability to accept a corrupt, nasty liar under FBI criminal investigation president.

53% of women voted for Trump

Nope, it's 53% of men voted for Trump. 54% of women voted for Hillary:

http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2016/11/09/behind-trumps-victory-divisions-by-race-gender-education/

Women supported Clinton over Trump by 54% to 42%. This is about the same as the Democratic advantage among women in 2012 (55% Obama vs. 44% Romney) and 2008 (56% Obama vs. 43% McCain).

By 53% to 41%, more men supported Trump than Clinton (the 12-point margin is identical to the margin by which women supported Clinton). The advantage for Trump among men is larger than the 7-point advantage Romney had in 2012 and much different than in 2008, when men preferred Obama over McCain by a single point. Trump’s performance among men is similar to that of George W. Bush in the 2004 and 2000 elections, where he won men by 11 points in each election.

How can anyone not see that these two statistics are wrong, just by looking at them? If more than half of women and half of men voted for Trump, he'd have more than half the vote. Which, as we all know, he didn't.

It's amazing that someone would post these numbers without realizing this.

Hopefully the Woman of the Year can give feminists something to think about. It's not just the guys' faults....and no, I'm not part of the MRAs, which I think are the weakest humans on the planet.

Har, har, har. Nice one, Mike. She's another member of an elite chastising "white woman trash".

With that modifier, that's right. Overall, Trump won 58% of the white votes.

Overall, Hillary won 54% of the women votes.

Pretty dopey comments from Madonna.

Clinton might have won if she was the dem nomination in 2008, but it was a different kind of glass being broken then.

Her being a woman has muting to do with the outcome, and seriously I don't think a lot of women are surprised that men talk this stuff behind their backs. At the end of the day the election was about changing direction rather than putting this filth bag in office over a woman.

Men protect each other, and women protect their men and children.

Women protect their men?? In what capacity? C'mon Madonna you can be less ambiguous than that without upsetting your 50-something fan base.

“Women hate women. That’s what I think it is,” Madonna told the music magazine.

More likely that women hate women that use their husbands career to get to the top and then claim she earned it when she didn't.

It could also be said that some women love powerful and abusive men,same as how a lot of women are attracted to bad guys.

Must be why Hillary married Bill. He treated her like a doormat and she stood by her man through every extra marital affair, sexual assault and rape. Most women don't admire Hillary Clinton as some heroic figure who was done wrong by her lecherous mate. She used his talents and achievements to boost her career prospects all the while claiming she clawed her way to the top by her own. Americans knew that was a lie.

Maybe they do, but that description does not fit Hillary. She has more than enough personal qualifications to make her president.

Which is likely why so many more people voted for her than Trump.

Madonna on Trump victory: 'Women hate women'

It seems Madonna is confused and taking Hillary's defeat too personally. The dislike for her carefully cultivated persona does not equate to dislike for all women.

She has more than enough personal qualifications to make her president.

Her qualifications prior to Bill's election as attorney general of Arkansas were not at all exceptional. Do you honestly believe that Hillary got that board of directors job at Wal Mart due to her business acumen? She used the platform she gained from staying married to a successful man ( who incidentally seemingly preferred other women to her ) to advance her own prospects. No way she becomes Senator of New York coming from Arkansas had she not become a feminist icon while ( Bill's ) First Lady. I don't fault her for using her husbands success to advance her own career. I do fault her, and feminists in general, for claiming credit for Hillary's achievements and ignoring the fact that she got where she did by riding her husbands coattails. Margaret Thatcher climbed her way to the top. Hillary rode the escalator.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

The question is why would anyone vote for Hillary? At 25 scandals over 40 years (1975 - 2016), that's more than a scandal every 2 years. 'Most-qualified candidate in history' doesn't mean 'candidate with the most baggage', does it?

I guess Madonna doesn't use Google. Or has someone to do her googling for her, and that someone is filtering it.

Ridiculous. She was more qualified to be president when Bill became president, than Bill was.

Temperamentally, yes, which is a low bar. Politically, maybe not, since because of her aloofness and unpopularity.

Is she telling men hate men so Trump lost? no,,,,, understand she needs publicity but .....
