Hillary Clinton is coming to the defense of Congresswoman Maxine Waters and reporter April Ryan who were both recently targeted by White, pompous, right winged men.

During the Professional Business Women of California conference on Tuesday afternoon, Trump’s presidential campaign opponent opened up to a large crowd about the sexism that exists in the workplace, especially when it comes to Black women.

“Just look at all that’s happened in the last two days to women who were simply doing their jobs,” she said. “Too many women, especially women of color, have had a lifetime of practice taking precisely these kinds of indignities in stride. But why should we have to. And any woman who thinks this couldn’t be directed at her is living in a dream world.”

Both incidents not only sparked outage across the country, but sparked the now viral hashtag, #BlackWomenAtWork.

Earlier this week, Fox News host Bill O’Reilly suggested he couldn’t pay attention to Waters’ recent comments on Donald Trump supporters because he “was looking at the James Brown wig. Do we have a picture of James Brown? It’s the same wig.”

Mere hours after Bill’s controversial remarks became a national headline, American Urban Radio Networks reporter April Ryan was targeted by White House press secretary Sean Spicer. After Ryan suggested the White House has a Russia issue to tackle, Spicer fired back: “Please, stop shaking your head again.”

The attack on Black women from the right really shouldn’t be surprising to anyone. African Americans, particularly women, were not fans of Trump or his politics. Exit polls taken in November show that 94% of African American women voted for Secretary Clinton during the 2016 Presidential election.

Sources tell E! News that the two are working on something special.  “They are discussing working together. They aren’t dating,” the insider explained. “Abel is always thinking about new collaborations with talented artists. Abel has many female friends and most of them are in the industry.”

Now that we can forget about naming these two the new it couple, we are now more concerned about what they have up their sleeves.
