In her first interview since losing the 2016 election, Hillary Clinton said misogyny had played a role in her election loss.
Clinton “spends a lot of time wrestling” with the fact that 53% of white women voted for Trump and the impact of her gender on her loss, she said at the Women in the World summit.
“Certainly misogyny played a role,” she said.
How Russia and misogyny led her to completely ignore Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania… and, let’s face it… the entire white working class of the United States… I don’t know.
The Democrat left really is wedded to their emotional hot-button issues (tranny bathrooms, illegal immigrants/refugees, political correctness). They find the economic challenges of the middle class beneath them. So mundane! To fret about economic security is surely a sign of low birth. Smart people are supposed to worry about whether transgendered people feel fully accepted; not about whether they will be replaced on the job by an H1-B worker.
That they blame misogyny and Russia for their loss is a product of the same contempt for middle America that was really why they lost the election. “Those ignorant bitter-clinger hicks in flyover rust belt states hate women and are so stupid they fell for Russia’s tricks,” is the essence of their argument.
They simply cannot be wrong.
Everyone else must be wrong.
