Hillary Clinton: US did not 'deserve' Trump presidency

Adjust Comment Print

Clinton was critical of Trump's reality campaign tactics and questioned whether she should have provided more entertainment to voters who responded to Trump's brash style. "You know, you didn't like black people getting rights; you don't like women, you know, getting jobs; you don't want to, you know, see that Indian-American succeeding more than you are - you know, whatever your problem is, I'm gonna solve it", she added. Yes, women who voted Republican only did so because they are afraid that ol' Bob is going to come home, get the beatin' stick out of the closet and start a-whoopin' and a-whalin' on the little woman.

Clinton went on to say that white women voters should fight "ongoing pressure to vote the way that your husband, your boss, your son, whoever, believes you should".

Her aides are suggesting these statements are only hurting the Democratic Party's brand, especially as the party looks ahead to the 2020 presidential election.

Her words have put vulnerable Democrats in a tight position like Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill.

Both states, Alabama and Pennsylvania, had gone for Trump in 2016. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.), who is running in a state Trump won by 19 points. We really do try very hard, ' Reed snarked.

To no one's surprise the Republican Party jumped on Hillary's words and will attempt to use them against opponents in the midterm.

Hillary Clinton told an audience in India that the United States did not "deserve" Donald Trump's presidency and these are "perilous times".

Weary Democrats said they had had enough, and that her clueless comments were reminiscent of her description on the campaign of many Trump supporters as a "basket of deplorables", a slur that cemented her image as an out-of-touch Beltway elitist. Jon Tester, a Democrat up for re-election in Trump-supporting Montana, 'was forced to release an ad today, 8 months before Election Day, attempting to highlight areas of agreement with President Trump'.

"Clinton has made comments like these before and has been criticized for them because they appear to place the blame for her loss on white women's inability to think independently about their vote".

"Putting aside how absurd and wrong she is, rhetoric like this is the reason Sen".
