Hillary Clinton Again Failed To Smile Exactly The Correct Amount
It turns out — according to the critics — that women can smile not enough AND too much
Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is a woman, and therefore is often asked/ordered to smile more, usually by men who really should know better. But, it turns out not only must women smile — there is a very precise amount of smiling that is the correct amount.
Earlier in the primary season, it was popular in certain quarters to encourage the former Secretary of State to smile more:
Smile. You just had a big night. #PrimaryDay

Clinton wasn’t the only woman running for president who was told to show those teeth. Carly Fiorina mentioned being told she “didn’t smile enough” during the Republican primary debates, a position that CNN’s Michael Smerconish, among others, was proud to hold.
Thanks for the shout out @CarlyFiorina – I am the one who said you need to smile more…..that wasn’t so hard was it?

So, Clinton did smile last night — either in deference to her critics, or because she really was having fun watching Trump fall all over himself — and guess what happened?

Who told Hillary Clinton to keep smiling like she’s at her granddaughter’s birthday party?

At one point, she even did a shoulder shimmy.

Many people enjoyed this. But not all!
Something very screwy going on here. https://t.co/eNnuOq6148

It’s almost like she can’t win with some people, no matter what she does!
I leave you with this, from “Dilbert” cartoonist Scott Adams, whose titular character doesn’t even have a mouth:
