Hillary Clinton said Saturday that some women are “publicly disrespecting themselves” in their support of President Trump.
“When I see women doing that, I think why are they publicly disrespecting themselves? Why are they opening the door to have someone say that about them in their workplace? In a community setting? Do they not see the connection there?” Clinton told MSNBC’s Joy Reid on “AM Joy.”
Clinton made the comments when asked about pro-Trump women who wear profane t-shirts “that used the b-word, the c-word about you.”
“And I think that’s one of the problems with sexism. We had such a public and still an ongoing movement to expand civil rights. Again, I’m proud of the progress, but we still have a lot of problems we have to confront,” she continued.

Mrs Clinton said:
She then continued to say that we don’t treat sexism as as serious a problem as racism, implying that, one, we are not better than this when it comes to sexism, and two, it was sexist not to vote for her in 2016. Women, “particularly white women,” are “publicly disrespecting themselves” by having supported, and continuing to support Mr Trump. As nearly as I can tell, the left believe that only heterosexual white men have enough intelligence to be allowed to think for themselves, that all others, women, racial and ethnic minorities, etc, are simply not allowed to have any independent thoughts other than what the left assign to them.
Electing Barack Obama did not end racism as we know too well, but it gave the country a chance to say, hey, wait a minute, we are better than this.
Is it sexist for women to have supported Donald Trump, or is it sexist to believe that women owed Mrs Clinton their votes simply due to their genitalia? Geraldine Ferraro, the former congresswoman and Democratic vice presidential nominee in 1984, labeled the Obama primary campaign in 2008 as “terribly sexist,” and even mused about voting for John McCain in the general election. Of course, Mrs Clinton’s 2008 primary campaign was accused of racism as then-Senator Barack Obama (D-IL) was beating her.
Mrs Clinton’s book selling tour has provided all sorts of red meat for commenters, because she has managed to indulge in sour grapes for the whole thing. Her loss was never her fault, and, when asked directly by Matt Lauer, in an interview on the Today show on September 13th, if her mistakes alone were sufficient to have caused her loss, without all of the extraneous stuff, she answered that no, they weren’t. It was her turn, damn it, and she was cheated out of the presidency by Vladimir Putin, sexist men controlling their wives and girlfriends, James Comey, Matt Lauer, The New York Times, Jill Stein, and whomever else I’ve left off this list.
Mrs Clinton stepped in it badly when she said, “You can put half of Trump supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables.” The failing liberal journal The New Republic tried to justify Mrs Clinton’s words, but they didn’t help her in the campaign, and the Trump campaign turned it to their advantage.
Now, Mrs Clinton has no more political races to run — at least, that’s what she says — and she’s back to Deplorables 2.0, this time meaning women, “particularly white women,” because they didn’t give her 100% of their votes. What a great way to drive more women into the Republican camp!
Republicans love this! With our now permanent political campaigns, the Democrats need to be mobilizing for the 2018 elections, yet just 13½ months, 409 days, away from the next congressional elections, Mrs Clinton is still sucking all of the air out of the room. While the Democrats are trying to make political hay out of Senator Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) proposal to extend Medicare to cover everybody, Mrs Clinton is still complaining about the outcome of the last election.
