Former President Bill Clinton has his reasons why Hillary lost the election to Donald Trump, and none of them involve the failures of his wife to connect with the real-life concerns of working-class America.
As is typical of establishment-type Democrats these days, Bill’s reasons do, however, involve plenty of race-baiting and wacky conspiracy theories.
After mocking President-elect Trump’s intelligence at a New York bookstore Q-and-A session earlier this month by answering the question of whether or not Trump is smart with a “He doesn’t know much,” Clinton then added an extra log or two to the fire by saying, “One thing he does know is how to get angry, white men to vote for him.”
Yep, he really went there, but is anyone surprised?
Clinton got lots of negative reaction on Twitter for his race-baiting, but perhaps the wittiest retort of all came from the indomitable Ann Coulter:
Speaking as one (an angry white man, or something), I would concur with Ann here. I haven’t been this non-angry in years. In fact, every day since election day has been like Christmas, waking up each morning to some new, shiny gift delivered to me by one Donald J. Trump. And watching all these liberal hysterics and tears is just icing on the cake. I’m loving every minute of it!
Many others also agree with Coulter’s sentiment:
And of course, you don’t have to be white, or a man, to agree with Coulter here:
It was an impromptu session at which Clinton was speaking, but an unidentified editor at the Bedford-Pound Ridge Record Review just happened to be there and later wrote about it in his employer’s print section, which was later reported by Politico.
During the discussion, Clinton blamed the defeat on FBI Director James Comey’s decision to go public withh his wife’s email server investigation.
“James Comey cost her the election,” Clinton said.
And what’s a good blame-session without bringing in the Russkies, right? Bill doesn’t fail here either, saying in reference to potential Russian hacking: “You would need to have a single-digit IQ not to recognize what was going on.”
