Hillary on GOP Criticism of Her Looking Too Serious: ‘It’s Especially Tricky For Women’

During an interview excerpt of her interview that is set to broadcast NBC’s “The Tonight Show” that was aired on Saturday’s “MSNBC Live,” Democratic presidential nominee former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton discussed Republican criticism of her looking too serious, and stated, “It’s especially tricky for women.”

Clinton said, “It’s especially tricky for women. It just is, because there’s a lot of serious things, the other night I was on a show and being asked about ISIS, and Iran, and I was serious. These are important issues that the country needs to talk about, and the Republicans were saying, oh, she looked so serious. Well, you don’t talk about ISIS with a big grin on your face. They’re a barbaric, evil group that we have to defeat and wipe out, but it is a constant balancing act. How do you kind of keep the energy and the positive spirit, while taking seriously what you need to?”
