Prominent Democrats and left-wing lawmakers are once-again distancing themselves from twice-failed presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton; saying the doomed nominee went too far when she claimed “white women” only voted for President Trump because their husbands forced them to.
The former Secretary of State was speaking at a conference in India when she made her outrageous remarks, saying American women were pressured by their “husbands, bosses, and sons” to vote for the Republican nominee.
“She put herself in a position where [Democrats] from states that Trump won will have to distance themselves from her even more,” said a former top Clinton staffer. “That’s a lot of states.”
“She’s annoying me. She’s annoying everyone, as far as I can tell,” said an anonymous Clinton insider. “Who lets her say these things?”
“If these statements are a form of catharsis, it would be in the Democratic Party’s best interest for her to get these out of her system soon,” added a senior Obama aide.
Her comments were even criticized by left-leaning daytime show ‘The View’ Tuesday morning, with the liberal hosts calling Clinton a “political virus” attached to the Democratic Party.

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.”

CLINTON DELUSION: Hillary Blames SOCIAL MEDIA for 2016 Election Disaster
Twice-failed presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton found yet another excuse for her dramatic defeat to Donald Trump in 2016; this time blaming “social media platforms” for her electoral disaster over one year ago.
The former Secretary of State issued her ironic warning on “social media platform” Twitter, saying “We should all care about how social media platforms play a part in our democratic process.”
“Because unless it’s addressed it will happen again. The midterms are in 8 months. We owe it to our democracy to get this right, and fast,” she added.

Clinton’s warning comes as the GOP and President Trump enjoy high approval ratings heading into the 2018 midterm elections; erasing Democratic gains after the ‘Schumer Shutdown’ and the widely popular Republican-sponsored tax cuts.
