Hillary is the gift that keeps on giving. She offers another excuse — NO IT WAS NOT AN APOLOGY — for her latest deplorable statements.
After even Democrats objected to what she said, she dug in with an explanation for what she said. How could anyone call that an apology?
(What she originally said) –“[Democrats] do not do well with white men, and we don’t do well with married, white women,” she said. “And part of that is an identification with the Republican Party, and a sort of ongoing pressure to vote the way that your husband, your boss, your son, whoever, believes you should,”
Actually, even Dick Durbin was asked about her statement, saying it was “not helpful.” Then he quibbled with the amount of people. So it was the number he disputed?
Now she does a face-plant on Facebook:
“I understand how some of what I said upset people and can be misinterpreted. I meant no disrespect to any individual or group. And I want to look to the future as much as anybody.”
You understand why you offended so many people! Yet you persist in saying it. Misinterpreted? Meant no disrespect? It was all about disrespecting people who did not vote for you. In her cremation of facts on Facebook, she said:
“My first instinct was to defend Americans and explain how Donald Trump could have been elected. I said that places doing better economically typically lean Democratic, and places where there is less optimism about the future lean Republican.”
No, your instinct was not to defend Americans but your failed bid for president. The only way to do that is to slander the people who voted against you, including women.
“THAT doesn’t mean the coasts versus the heartland, it doesn’t even mean entire states. In fact, it more often captures the divisions between more dynamic urban areas and less prosperous small towns within states.”
Yes, you did mean the coastal regions versus the heartland. Forward looking places like California — who are in the midst of seceding from the union you ran to be president of!
“As I said throughout the campaign, Trump’s message was dark and backwards looking. I don’t need to list the reasons, but the foundation of his message, “Make America Great AGAIN” suggests that to be great we have to go back to something we are no longer. I never accepted that and never will.”
Darkness is creating jobs, bringing back the economy to forgotten people who aren’t in your leftist silo? Leveling the field of trade, reducing deficits is backward?
She closes with another face plant, like the one she narrowly avoided on the steps.
“So to those upset or offended by what I said last week, I hope this explanation helps to explain the point I was trying to make. And I hope now that we can get back to the real business before us: Protecting our democracy and building a future we can all share.”
Your point was as clear as the deplorable comment was. It does help, only to solidify your disdain for voters. You weren’t about “protecting democracy” but rigging it! A future that the rest of us cannot possibly share in, unless they are an elitist like you.
But one can never believe anything she says anyway.
Read my earlier (mind reading) translation of what she meant here.
