During Nancy Reagan’s funeral, Hillary Clinton went on national television and praised the Reagans for starting a “national dialogue” at at time when nobody wanted to talk about AIDS, or do anything about AIDS.

In 1984, even after tens of thousands of gay Americans had died from the disease, the Reagan administration was still joking about it.
