A phrase that brought controversy to the Democratic primaries | The Tylt
At a NY Bernie Sanders rally, physician and health care activist Paul Song referred to Hillary Clinton and politicians that are "beholden" to big corporations as "Democratic whores." Bernie Sanders repudiated the remarks the following day, but the hashtag #DemocraticWhores was already trending.
The Democratic primary started off very cordial compared to the GOP, but has taken a more fierce turn as of late. Many Hillary supporters have used #ImWithHer as a rallying cry for Hillary. That call is even more poignant with the gendered tone of the currently trending #DemocraticWhores.
So where do you stand? Is "#DemocraticWhores" a useful criticism? Do you think the Democratic party has a problem with corrupt politicians?
Or should that term not even be thrown around - especially not in reference to Hillary? #ImWithHer
