Hillary Clinton questions, to think of the women regardless
Hillary Clinton throws her election loss on married women. Tammy Bruce gives her take.
Former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton tried to explain her comments about the American voters and the election in 2016 in a lengthy Facebook post on Saturday that claimed that they “meant no disrespect to a Person or group.”
During a recent trip to India, Clinton told attendees at a conference in Mumbai that the Americans do not “deserve” a trump presidency, said she won the States, ” are optimistic, diverse, dynamic, and moving forward,” and said that Trump was a campaign “to the rear.”
Clinton summed up the trump message is like “you know you don’t like black people getting rights that they don’t know how women, you, always jobs. You don’t want to, you know, to see that Indian American success more than you are.”
“I understand how some of what I said angered the people and can be interpreted the wrong way,” Clinton said in her Facebook post. “I meant no disrespect to a Person or group. And I want to look in the future, as much as any other.”
But the former first lady criticized trump for the appeal to be “alarmist and false attacks [masked] the fact that he is no friend of the majority of Americans.”
Clinton also stood by comments that say that white women who voted for Trump, “a kind of persistent pressure to vote the way that you, your husband, your boss, your son, whoever believes that, you should.”
“[T]here is anecdotal evidence and some research to suggest that women, unfortunately, are more swayed by men than Vice versa,” Clinton insisted, on Facebook. “As much as I hate the possibility, and hate to say it, it’s not that crazy, if you think to achieve through our ongoing battle of balance between the sexes, even within the same household.
“I knew how hard it would be to also met many who heard it,” Clinton. “So, those who upset or offended by what I said last week, I hope this explanation helps to explain the point I’m trying to make.”
Clinton’s original comments drew backlash from Democrats, among them Senate Minority whip Dick Durbin of Illinois, said on “Fox News Sunday” that former Secretary of state were expressions of “not helpful.”
“Thirty percent of the people voted for Donald Trump had voted for President Obama,” Durbin pointed out. “Why? The same people, the change to the terms thought with President Obama, it was enough, as far as her personal life was concerned, and she supports Donald Trump.
“This is a reality that the Democrats recognize that.”
