Hillary Clinton threw white American women under the bus during a speech in India–blaming them for not having the backbone to vote for her.
On Saturday, when Clinton spoke at the India Today Conclave in Mumbai, she was asked how 52 percent of white women could vote for President Trump, considering his history of crude sexual remarks, rather than the potential first female President.
Clinton, basically, responded by saying that most white women were being bullied into supporting Trump by their male family members.
“Democrats, going back to my husband and even before, but just in recent times going back to Bill and our candidates and then President Obama, have been losing the vote, including white women,” Clinton explained. “We do not do well with white men and we don’t do well with married white women.”
Explaining why, in particular, she failed to resonate with white women, Clinton did what she does best: blame someone else.
White women face an “ongoing pressure to vote the way that your husband, your boss, your son, whoever, believes you should,” she explained.
She added that she believes white women likely would’ve “stood up” to men–had it not been for then-FBI Director James Comey’s decision to reopen the Clinton email investigation, after new evidence was discovered.
“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 workplaces, were being told, ‘She’s going to jail. You don’t want to vote for her. It’s terrible, you can’t vote for that.’ So, it just stopped my momentum and it decreased my vote enough because I was ahead. I was winning, and I thought I had fought my way back in the ten days from that letter until the election. I fell a little bit short,” Clinton said.
“I think that it was part of a historical trend that I was bucking and then it collapsed on me,” she added.
