So, let’s see if can make sense of this. When Donald Trump speaks of women as sex objects, he is bad. When Hillary Clinton treats males of the species the same way, she is being charming and playful — even liberated.
That would seem to be the logical takeaway from an incident that occurred at one of her campaign rallies back in May. Clinton was droning on in her usual robotic voice when a couple of chiseled dudes in the audience doffed their shirts to reveal that the Clinton “H-is-for-hospital” logo had been tattooed or drawn on their chests.
It wasn’t immediately clear if these two were members of “Hunks for Hillary,” a group of body builders, some of them gay and coupled, who have … er — come out in support of the Democratic nominee.

In any case, when the pair at the rally offered Clinton the shirts off their backs, she became visibly sidetracked. Ultimately, she confirmed as much, announcing at 0:15 in the video that follows:
I got to admit it is a little distracting standing up here looking at ’em.
What makes all of this ludicrous is that feelings of attraction for the opposite sex are both normal and biologically driven: Think procreation.
Oh, and for those who would argue that Trump’s behavior is more crass because he has made it clear he ogles and objectifies women, Hillary Clinton has proven she is susceptible to the same earthly impulses and urges.
