Hillary Clinton has been making headlines during her India trip. Some are about physical slips. She twice slipped on stairs and fell in a bathtub, fracturing her wrist. She has also made the news with her slips of the tongue.
During a speech she added to her laundry list of reasons she lost. It’s the voters fault. She expanded on her deplorables theme. In referring to people who voted for Trump, she said “You know, you didn’t like black people getting rights. You didn’t like, you know, women getting jobs.” She also went after married white women who voted Republican. She said it was due to “ongoing pressure to vote the way your husband, your boss, your son, whoever, believes you should.”
Evidently her message to blue collar workers that deserted the Democratic Party is that they did so because they are racist and sexist. Presumably they were upstanding citizens when they voted for her husband. I wondered what changed them? Fox News perhaps?
She is telling women that they voted Republican because they are such spineless, mindless twits that they need her as President to protect them from the men in their lives. There may be women like that, but I’ve never met them.
I understand that she doesn’t get out and mingle with the people. Probably the only ones she meets who aren’t fellow elitists are servants. Even so, I can’t imagine how she can be so totally ignorant of what her fellow citizens are really like. All she would need to do is ask Bill. Of course, he prefers a different kind of mingling.
Republicans ought to spread her quote (and Nancy Pelosi’s about $1,000 being crumbs) far and wide. Perhaps they could surreptitiously funnel a few million dollars to her for a speaking tour. Democrats ought to give her millions to shut up.
