    I've been waiting for Dick for two days on this, and he's failing. So, fine. Here.

    The quote:

    "And, when you’re young, you’re thinking, where are the boys? The boys are with Bernie..."

    In a case of talk-show Interruptus, I misspoke on the Bill Maher show recently, and apologize for what's been misinterpreted as implying young women aren't serious in their politics. What I had just said on the same show was the opposite: young women are active, mad as hell about what's happening to them, graduating in debt, but averaging a million dollars less over their lifetimes to pay it back. Whether they gravitate to Bernie or Hillary, young women are activist and feminist in greater numbers than ever before.

    What does she think was misinterpreted about what she said?

    What else could she have meant?

    She didn't mean for people to get mad about it. Duh! You can't talk to those young airheads who haven't been through the struggle though.

    I believe Gloria believes that these women believe all the boys believe in Bernie.

    Or ask if she's ever been in Lena Dunham's (ahem) kitchen.
