Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager is a passionate advocate for equality — especially in the booty.

According to the latest release of Wikileaks emails, John Podesta made the lewd remark in August 2014 to a donor to the Center for American Progress who was doubting the liberal think tank published on its signature Think Progress site an essay by rapper Nicki Minaj.

The post was titled “Nicki Minaj Doesn’t Think Her Butt Is Unacceptable.”

Herbert Sandler, a wealthy bankroller for the Center, asked “what’s this got to do with Think Progress and the issues it purports to raise?” 

Mr. Podesta, a former president and now chairman and counselor for CAP, replied “Gender and racial and booty equity.”

The Clinton campaign has attacked Donald Trump incessantly for lewd and objectifying comments about and to women, comments Mr. Trump has dismissed as “locker room” talk.
