Hillary Clinton Criticized After Saying Trump Voters Supported a 'Backwards' Agenda

On the same India trip Hillary Clinton suggested that the states that voter for her were more economically advanced than those that voted for President Trump. That comment also irked Democrats who are trying to make inroads in places like Pennsylvania

Scott Walker, the Republican Governors Association pounced on comments made by Hillary Clinton at a conference in Mumbai, India.

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

"Those are kind of fighting words for me, because I'm partial to Missouri voters", said Sen. I may not have agreed with their choice, but I certainly respect them. "What that map doesn't show you is that I won the places that won two thirds of America's Gross Domestic product".

The Clintons are "a virus in the Democratic party" and should "move on", Meghan McCain has said. "You know, you didn't like black people getting rights; you don't like women, you know, getting jobs; you don't want to, you know, see that Indian-American succeeding more than you are - you know, whatever your problem is, I'm gonna solve it", she added. "And that makes me feel just a little bit better". "That's a lot of states".

An unnamed 2016 surrogate said, "She's annoying me".

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.


On Saturday, after Trump campaigned for Republican House candidate Rick Saccone in Pennsylvania, Clinton's longtime communications adviser, Philippe Reines, said he understands "why that man won in 2016".

"We need leaders like her to look forward to 2020 and how to unify the party, not continue to re-litigate the past".

The remarks reminded numerous former secretary of State's comments in 2016 that some of Trump's supporters fit in a "basket of deplorables", a line the Republican then used against her repeatedly during the final stretch of the campaign.

"Look, this was bad. I won the places that are optimistic, diverse, dynamic, moving forward", she said.

Some consider Clinton an asset, however, such a former Clinton campaign spokesman Jesse Ferguson, who is helping the Democratic midterm effort in 2018.

Refusing to be beaten Clinton then kicked off her sandals and continued barefoot without issue. Hurt, Melissa Francis and Lisa Kennedy took turns ripping Clinton's "patronizing" remarks and talking about how they'll be used in GOP ad campaigns to bash Democrats in future elections.
