Dem operatives fume after Hillary disses Trump voters

Hillary Clinton on a trip to India said that white married women were pressured to vote for President Trump by their husbands. Unnamed Clinton allies are suggesting that she keep these thoughts to herself as the Democratic Party tries to rebuild

Hillary Clinton on a trip to India said that white married women were pressured to vote for President Trump by their husbands. Unnamed Clinton allies are suggesting that she keep these thoughts to herself as the Democratic Party tries to rebuild

She first explained that Trump voters are stupid poor people: "What the map doesn't show you is that I won the places that represent two-thirds of America's gross domestic product".

The story, which you can read here, cites studies that found that white men as a group tend to be more conservative than other groups and the women who marry them are less likely to have their own careers and are more financially dependent on their husbands.

Hillary Clinton, on a trip to India, said that white married women were pressured to vote for President Trump by their husbands.

Clinton went on to say that white women voters should fight "ongoing pressure to vote the way that your husband, your boss, your son, whoever, believes you should".

Fox News contributor Tomi Lahren on Wednesday lashed out at Hillary Clinton for calling on white women to vote for Democrats.

All of a sudden white women who were going to vote for me, and frankly standing up to the men in their lives and the men in their work places were being told, "She's going to jail, you don't want to vote for her".

One former senior Obama White House aide added, "If these statements are a form of catharsis, it would be in the Democratic Party's best interest for her to get these out of her system soon". "It's going to be bad you can't vote for that".

Clinton, who continues to tour the world promoting her book, "What Happened", on her failed presidential bid, has previously blamed FBI Director James Comey and Russian intervention in the election for her shocking loss to Trump.

Lahren argued that Democrats cannot win "middle America" unless they distance themselves from Clinton.

Last weekend, Hillary Clinton spoke in India.

Weary Democrats said they had had enough, and that her clueless comments were reminiscent of her description on the campaign of many Trump supporters as a "basket of deplorables", a slur that cemented her image as an out-of-touch Beltway elitist.

Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown, who is also up for re-election said that he doesn't "really care what she said" and that her words are "not helpful". Jon Tester, a Democrat up for re-election in Trump-supporting Montana, 'was forced to release an ad today, 8 months before Election Day, attempting to highlight areas of agreement with President Trump'.
