Where does the slur “Queen Hillary” come from?

Yes, I know, Hillary Clinton’s husband is a former President of the United States. Yes, I know that they probably used some influence to help her win the Senate seat in New York, though she still had to get elected.

But she ran for the Democratic nomination in 2008 and was defeated. Then she was picked to be Secretary of State by President Obama and then confirmed.

This tells me that she has been good about getting elected, though she has lost one. What exactly is “queen like” about that?

Nevertheless, that phrase is used by liberal detractors (often Sanders supporters) and conservative detractors alike.

What gives?

Note: I didn’t see anyone tab Jeb Bush (or George W. Bush for that matter) as “King” even though they had a father who served as President and they came from a genuinely aristocratic family.

  1. It comes from her sense of entitlement and its her turn to be president.

    • “sense of entitlement” is what insecure dudes tend to call it when highly qualified women refuse to deny that they are highly qualified.

      The queen slur comes from sexism, period. As the OP noted, the same slur was not applied to Bush, though it would have been far more appropriate.
