The left-leaning Washington Post came to Hillary Clinton’s defense Wednesday; backing-up the failed presidential nominee’s comments that ‘white women’ were pressured into voting for Donald Trump by their husbands and sons.
In a bizarre article titled, “Like it or not, studies suggest that Clinton may not be wrong on white women voting like their husbands,” the Post claims the former Secretary of State’s fiery rhetoric was scientifically accurate.
“Clinton has made comments like these before and has been criticized for them because they appear to place the blame for her loss on white women’s inability to think independently about their vote. But there are studies that show that how white women vote, especially those who are married, is highly influenced by the politics of their husbands,” writes the liberal newspaper.
“White women are much more likely to be married than women of other demographic groups. And married women are more likely to support traditional values, both culturally and economically,” adds the author.
Clinton found herself in hot-water Tuesday after speaking at an international conference in India; slamming ‘white women’ for costing her the 2016 election to Donald Trump.
“[Democrats] do not do well with white men, and we don’t do well with married, white women. 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,” she said.
CLINTON GOES NUCLEAR: Hillary Says 'WHITE WOMEN' Were Forced to Vote for Trump by Their Husbands
Hillary Clinton took her international excuses tour to a new low over the weekend; telling a packed audience at a conference in India that ‘white women’ overwhelmingly voted for Donald Trump simply because their husbands forced them to.
The former Secretary of State was speaking to the India Today Conclave event on Saturday when she found yet another excuse for her 2016 defeat to Donald Trump; this time blaming ‘white women’ of both political parties who would have voted for her otherwise.
“[Democrats] do not do well with white men and we don’t do well with married, white women,” Clinton explained. “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,” said Clinton.
“What happened in my election, I was on the way to winning white women until former Director of the FBI Jim Comey dropped that ill-advised letter; then my numbers went down,” she added. “All of a sudden white women who were going to vote for me and standing up to the men in their lives were told she’s going to jail.”

ANOTHER EXCUSE: Hillary Posts LATE NIGHT ‘APOLOGY’ for 2008 Sex Scandal
Hillary Clinton’s non-stop excuses tour continued this week, with the twice-failed presidential nominee posting a half-apology for her role in a 2008 sexual harassment scandal just as President Trump arrived at the Capitol to deliver his State of the Union address.
The former Secretary of State issued her tepid response at 8:45pm Tuesday night, blasting a recent New York Times report that claims Clinton kept a male advisor on staff for months after he sexually harassed a female subordinate during her 2008 run for the White House; defying the advice from her campaign manager and others.
“I very much understand the question I’m being asked as to why I let an employee on my 2008 campaign keep his job despite his inappropriate workplace behavior,” Clinton posted. “The short answer is this: If I had it to do again, I wouldn’t.”
Clinton then defended her decision, saying she has “always taken firing very seriously.”
“Through it all, I’ve always taken firing very seriously […] Taking away someone’s livelihood is perhaps the most serious thing an employer can do.”
“When faced with a situation like this, if I think it’s possible to avoid termination while still doing right by everyone involved, I am inclined in that direction,” she added. “I do not put this forward as a virtue or a vice – just as a fact about how I view these matters.”
