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.
eBay BANS Six Dr. Seuss Books That Will No Longer Be Published Due to “Racist Images”
This is getting completely out of hand.
The hysteria continues: eBay has banned the reselling of six Dr. Seuss books that will no longer be published due to “racist imagery,” saying that these listings now violate their policies.
eBay had emailed people who put the books up for sale early Thursday morning. With a subject line titled “Your listing was removed: Offensive material policy,” eBay’s email reads as follows:
“We had to remove your listing because it didn’t follow our Offensive material policy. Listings that promote or glorify hatred, violence, or discrimination aren’t allowed.
“Dr. Seuss Enterprises has stopped publication of this book due to its negative portrayal of some ethnicities. As a courtesy, we have ended your item and refunded your selling fees, and as long as you do not relist the item, there will be no negative impact to your account. Please review our Offensive Materials Policy prohibits this item for more information [sic].
“You can’t relist items we’ve ended. Please ensure your current and future listings follow this policy.”

The six books that Dr. Seuss Enterprises said they would no longer publish include And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street, If I Ran the Zoo, McElligot’s Pool, On Beyond Zebra!, Scrambled Eggs Super!, and The Cat’s Quizzer.
Big League Politics reported Tuesday that a school district in northern Virginia stopped celebrating Dr. Seuss on Read Across America Day because of the “racial undertones” of such books. Although the district said they would not ban Dr. Seuss books from their libraries and classrooms, there’s no doubt they’ll consider removing the six books now considered irredeemably racist.
eBay is probably the first domino to fall. Expect Amazon and others to follow suit.
