Meghan McCain calls Clinton family 'virus' in Democratic politics

Meghan McCain calls Clinton family 'virus' in Democratic politics

"And [Trump's] whole campaign - "Make America Great Again" - was looking backward".

During a trip to India, Clinton explained how Democrats struggle to attract white male voters and, in turn, white married women. "And then she goes ahead and insults white women, that we can't think for ourselves, we can't vote for ourselves".

The former aides say that Clinton also added insult to injury when she suggested that women who voted for Trump were pressured "to vote the way that your husband, your boss, your son, whoever believes you should".

Hillary Clinton told an audience in India that the United States did not "deserve" Donald Trump's presidency and these are "perilous times".

Clinton said the Republican president has "quite an affinity for dictators" and said Trump "really likes their authoritarian posturing and behavior".

Clinton found herself in hot-water Tuesday after speaking at an worldwide conference in India; slamming "white women" for costing her the 2016 election to Donald Trump. Yes, women who voted Republican only did so because they are afraid that ol' Bob is going to come home, get the beatin' stick out of the closet and start a-whoopin' and a-whalin' on the little woman. Tribalism in voting exists on both sides: The intersectional politics of the Democratic Party is inherently race-based, and Trump successfully responded to that sort of politics in reactionary fashion.

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. For months, some Democrats have been arguing that Clinton's sentiments have been counterproductive to the party's rebuilding efforts.

McCain isn't the only one angry at Clinton over her recent comments, however.

"She put herself in a position where [Democrats] from states that Trump won will have to distance themselves from her even more", said one former senior Clinton aide.

In other words, Reines knows that Trump's messages resonated deeply in the heartland of America.
