Celebs React to Hillary Clinton's Statement on Reagan & AIDS

Hillary Clinton has apologized after praising the late Ronald and Nancy Reagan for being early AIDS advocates when in reality, they were silent about the cause.

The presidential candidate spoke to MSNBC at Nancy‘s funeral on Friday (March 11) in Simi Valley, Calif.

“It may be hard for your viewers to remember how difficult it was for people to talk about HIV/AIDS back in the 1980′s and because of both President and Mrs Reagan—in particular Mrs Reagan—we started a national conversation, when before nobody would talk about it, nobody wanted to do anything about it,” Hillary said on camera. “And, you know, that too is something that I really appreciate was her very effective but low-key advocacy, but it penetrated the public conscience, and people began to say ‘hey we have to do something about this too.’”

After Hillary‘s inaccuracies were pointed out, she issued an apology statement.

“While the Reagans were strong advocates for stem cell research and finding a cure for Alzheimer’s disease, I misspoke about their record on HIV and AIDS. For that, I am sorry,” she said.

    Just proves how an out of touch, privileged, life long millionaire politician can’t recall something so vital that I, myself, remember from when I was 15. Happy to see so many LGBT folks deciding that they will not vote for her because of this ridiculous flub.

  • MIT SCIENCE EXPLORATION LABS

    More alien commie Democrat douches speaking loud and proud about their embracing and spreading AIDS while inhumanly speaking in favor of Americans and everyone else suffering from the very real disease and indignity of Alzheimers. Hooray for NYLAWood, you homeless, sexless, loveless and brainless alien LOSERWOODS!!

    The reason she got it wrong is very simple. Anybody with any connection to the gay rights movement is aware of Act Up and the Silence=Death movements, and how horrible the Reagans were on the issue of AIDS. Clinton doesn’t know that because before 2013, she had zero association with any gay rights movement, except to oppose their goals.
