Take this example.
While researching the background on her 2016 speech about Donald Trump's supporters being a "basket of deplorables," I noticed something interesting.
She attempted to fix that situation by the way, saying that only some of his supporters deserved to be in that basket. Kind of like 'mostly dead.'
Anyways, Mrs. Clinton said this during the same speech:
Wait a minute. In her most recent faux pas, didn't she say:
“You know, you didn’t like black people getting rights,” she added, “you didn’t like women y’know, getting jobs, you don’t want, y’know, see that Indian American succeeding more than you are, whatever your problem is, I’m gonna solve it.”
Hmmm. All by herself, no doubt.
Ironically, former President Obama made similar "bitter comments" in 2008, but later apologized and said they were "my most boneheaded move:"
"How it was interpreted in the press was Obama talking to a bunch of wine-sipping San Francisco liberals with an anthropological view toward white working-class voters," Obama told the Times. "And I was actually making the reverse point, clumsily, which is that these voters have a right to be frustrated because they've been ignored. And because Democrats haven't met them halfway on cultural issues, we've not been able to communicate to them effectively an economic agenda that would help broaden our coalition."
Mrs. Clinton's response to this -- at a time when she was hoping for the Democratic nomination, and actively campaigning for it -- was that Obama was "elitist and divisive."
"People don't need a president who looks down on them. They need a president who stands up for them," she said.
Steve Hilton's commentary on Mrs. Clinton's recent speech is penetrating:
Not to mention Gina Haspel, newly-appointed director of the CIA.
Please, Mrs. Clinton. Review what you've already said, before you add to the opus. Maybe you can fix it...or at least try. Please.
I need the rest.
