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.”

Welsh woman meets Hillary Clinton. Tells her 'Bernie would have won…only you could lose to Trump'#HillaryClinton #donaldtrump #berniesanders #swansea

“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.

Country Band that Changed Name from “Lady Antebellum” to “Lady A” Now Suing Black Artist That Originally Used Title

They changed their name because of supposed Confederate ties.

A country music band that changed their name from ‘Lady Antebellum’ to ‘Lady A’ in the wake of the George Floyd race riots is now suing the singer who originally used the title, who is black.

The band had announced it’d change its name in the wake of criticism from liberals, who took offense at the word ‘Antebellum-‘ a phrase sometimes used in historical writings to describe the American South before the Civil War. The group instead opted to call itself “Lady A,” a name, as it turns out, was already in use by Seattle-area blues and folk singer Anita White.

The dispute between Lady Antebellum and White has been identified as a striking example of liberal hypocrisy and self-aggrandizement, with the band making a supposedly virtuous stance and sacrifice by changing their name, utterly ignoring that they were usurping on a musical name already used by a black artist.

In a new development highlighting the Nashville act’s bad faith, the band is now suing White, claiming that they’ve always had the name she’s used as a legal trademark and refusing any claim of monetary damages from the name change on the part of White.

Today we are sad to share that our sincere hope to join together with Anita White in unity and common purpose has ended,” the group said in a statement. “She and her team have demanded a $10 million payment, so reluctantly we have come to the conclusion that we need to ask a court to affirm our right to continue to use the name Lady A, a trademark we have held for many years.

If Lady Antebellum proves successful in getting the government to recognize their copyright claim to ‘Lady A,’ the artist that originally used the name will have no choice but to surrender it to the more commercially known and influential musical act.

Observers of the situation immediately slammed the country music group for its disrespect for the title’s existing user.
