At the RNC, we try not to continue to focus on Hillary Clinton. We really do try very hard.
But this one is impossible to ignore. While abroad, Clinton just boasted about how in 2016 she supposedly won all areas of the country with high GDP, where people are “optimistic,” “dynamic,” and “moving forward.”
While, in her words, Trump won areas that are backwards, filled with people who don’t “like black people getting rights,” and “don’t like women” getting jobs.
Putting aside how absurd and wrong she is, rhetoric like this is the reason Sen. Tester (D-MT) was forced to release an ad today, 8 months before election day, attempting to highlight areas of agreement with President Trump (despite voting against President Trump’s policies 80% of the time). The Democrat brand is isolated, elitist, and as out-of-touch as it ever has been.
The 10 Democrat Senators running for re-election in states President Trump won need to be asked about Hillary’s comments. Surely they will attempt to run from her stunning elitism. But don’t forget that they all endorsed Hillary Clinton in 2016, because voters certainly won’t.
Clearly a poor candidate, but that worldview she's articulating is pretty much mainstream within the party. https://t.co/8EN2ePoa0e— Josh Kraushaar (@HotlineJosh) March 12, 2018
HILLARY CLINTON: “If you look at the map of the United States, there’s all that red in the middle where Trump won. I win the coasts, I win – you know – Illinois, Minnesota, places like that. But what the map doesn’t show you is 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, you know, to see that Indian American succeeding more than you are. Whatever your problem is, I’m gonna solve it.”
