It’s rough out there for Hillary Clinton these days, even when she leaves the country.
Clinton was in Wales over the weekend to receive an honorary doctorate from Swansea University, but was met with protesters, including Kirsty Lloyd, who told her to her face that “Bernie would have won.”

“Only you could lose to Trump,” the student said.
The former first lady and failed presidential candidate was outside the university for a meet and greet when the woman approached her. As soon as the sharp words came out of Lloyd’s mouth, Clinton turned around and quickly shuffled herself back inside.
Clinton was being honored by Swansea “in recognition of her commitment to promoting the rights of families and children around the world, a commitment that is shared by Swansea University’s Observatory on the Human Rights of Children and Young People,” according to a statement by the university.
When the failed candidate arrived at the university, she was met with a mixture of cheers and loud boos from the crowd.

Lloyd, who was one of many protesters in attendance, shared her feelings about the honor with the London Economic.
“She lost,” Lloyd, a Welsh Biochemistry student, told The London Economic of why she was protesting.
“Hillary Clinton cheated Bernie Sanders of his nomination. And all those drone strikes that killed women and children which are illegal contradict the reason she is being given a doctorate – which is for doing things for women and children all over the world. The main thing she’s done for women and children is kill them drone strikes,” Lloyd stated.
“Bernie would have won” is a popular meme used by Sanders supporters to troll Clinton voters who refuse to acknowledge that the Democratic Party actively worked to prevent the Vermont populist senator from winning the nomination.
Coronavirus Pandemic Has Significantly Decreased Annual US Births
The virus has created a baby bust.
The coronavirus pandemic has significantly decreased new births in the United States in the year 2020, setting the country back demographically in an era where annual births are already at record lows.
The Wall Street Journal cited research conducted by the Brookings Institute which projected the United States would have more than 500,000 less births in 2020 than it did in 2019.
“The think tank has forecast between 300,000 to 500,000 fewer births in the U.S. next year, compared with a drop of 44,172 last year. Its analysis, partly based on what happened following the 2007-2009 recession, is that weaker job prospects equate to fewer births. “Women will have many fewer babies in the short term, and for some of them, a lower total number of children over their lifetimes,” reported the WSJ.
Births in the United States had already reached record lows in 2019, and stand to be much lower this year because of the virus. The Brookings Institute is basing their projections on the aftermath of the 2007-08 Great Recession, and points to damaged economic prospects for women from the virus as a critical factor in dissuading families from having children.
Liberals generally oppose the notion of pro-family natalist policies to increase the U.S. birth rate. Potential solutions could include funding fertility treatment for those seeking to conceive, paid family leave, tax credits for the parents of children and subsidized childcare.
It’s likely the drop in birthrates will reverberate in years to come, potentially creating demographic problems for America, which already isn’t producing enough new babies to create a sufficient societal, labor and tax base in future decades.
