VIDEO: Students are ‘Ready for Hillary’ just because she’s a woman
- Hillary Clinton supporters at the University of Washington were asked why they supported the former Secretary of State.
- Answers ranged from “she’s a woman," to “because it’s time we have a female president."
It seems many students at the University of Washington can’t think of any reason why they should vote for Hillary Clinton in 2016 — other than her gender.
Campus Reform headed to Seattle, Wash., and asked several college students if they were “ready for Hillary” and why they would vote for her.
“She’s a woman, and that’s literally all,” one female student told Campus Reform.
“Because it’s time we have a female president,” another woman said.
Clinton, who is 67-years-old, kicked off her presidential campaign last week with an event in Iowa, an early caucus state. During the small roundtable meeting at Kirkwood Community College, the former First Lady blasted CEOs and hedge fund managers for the amount of money they make.
"There’s something wrong when CEOs make 300 times more than the typical worker,” she said.
"And there’s something wrong when hedge fund managers pay lower tax rates than nurses or the truckers that I saw on I-80 as I was driving here over the last two days," Clinton also said.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, the former secretary of state has an estimated net worth of $21.5 million. Clinton regularly charges universities massive speaking fees, upwards of $200,000 per speech, while discussing the evils of income inequality.
