Former President Bill Clinton stated that his wife his wife, Democratic presidential candidate former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, is held to “some different standards” in response to a question from MSNBC Political Reporter Alex Seitz-Wald on whether Hillary is qualified to be president, and whether a man with her track record would face the same criticism broadcast on Friday’s “The Place for Politics 2016” on MSNBC.
During his report, Seitz-Wald said that he asked Clinton about charges that Hillary is unqualified to be president, and whether a male candidate with Hillary’s experience would face the same charge.
Clinton answered, “I think she’d be the best president, and I think it’s obvious by a country mile, and that’s all that matters to me. Yes, I think there are some different standards. Some of them are subconscious.”
