Hillary Clinton is back in the news, when her catastrophic comments in India caused even Democrats to distance themselves from her, after she insulted literally ALL of Middle America.
In the video below, Hillary says:
If you look at the map of the United States, there is all that red in the middle where trump won [dismisivly]. I win the coasts, I win…you know, Illinois, Minnesota, places like that. I won the places that represent two-thirds of America’s gross domestic product… So I won the places that are optimistic, diverse, dynamic, moving forward. And his whole campaign, ‘Make America Great Again,’ was looking backwards. 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, whatever your problem is, I’m going to solve it.'”
Many experts have already pointed out that her “Basket of Deplorable” Comment, in which she said:
“you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables“
contributed to her loss, by displaying a callous disregard for a massive amount of the electorate.
Trump said it best saying it showed “her true contempt for everyday Americans.”
This latest comment proves how little she has learned since then, as she simply repeats her mistake. She basically said that Trump supporters are backward-looking racists, from an insignificant part of the US, whereas she won the places that mattered.
Not only has she learned nothing, but she even brushed aside her the actual effect of her previous Deportables comment, in an interview, saying:
“I don’t think that was determinative. [in her losing the election]”
Interestingly, without making any claims, a lack of responsibility, remorse, and habit of brushing aside blame are common traits of a Psychopath.
Most of all, this is a reminder you don’t win an election by insulting the voters – that is basically NEVER a good idea. After making a grievous error, doubling down and repeating the same mistake – also a bad idea. This wasn’t the only terrible error she made during her India speech. She also recounted a story Putin allegedly told her, about how his parents suffered in Stalingrad, despite that it is well known that his family suffered in Leningrad, where his father’s combat operations were the stuff of legends, as we discuss in this article.
Not only does she insult the American people, but she is ignorant enough about Russia to confuse the names of two of the most famous cities during WW2, in which the tide of the entire war was turned. Even if she isn’t running, her statements not only betray how out of touch she is, but they are harmful to the Democratic party in upcoming elections.
