Hillary Clinton faced a brutal backlash on social media Friday after she compared the United States to Afghanistan and Somalia because of the Supreme Court’s decision on abortion.
“It’s so shocking to think that in any way we’re related to poor Afghanistan and Sudan,” she said Friday in Little Rock, Arkansas. “But as an advanced economy as we allegedly are, on this measure, we unfortunately are rightly put with them.”
“This struggle is between autocracy and democracy from our country to places we can’t even believe we’re being compared to,” Clinton said.
“One of the stories ingrained in my mind is that often black women, even women of education and affluence like Serena Williams, come close to dying when she gives birth because people are not paying attention to her,” Clinton said.
