Hillary Clinton was back in the news for all the wrong reasons.
She claimed she lost married white women in the 2016 election because they could not think for themselves.
That led to massive blowback and one surprising group of people shut Clinton down for good.
It was Democrat women who rose and told Clinton “enough was enough.”
Patti Solis Doyle – Clinton’s campaign manager from her failed 2008 bid – and Missouri Senator Clair McCaskill – who is running for re-election in 2018 – hammered Clinton for her remarks.
Fox News reports:
“Clinton’s former 2008 presidential campaign manager Patti Solis Doyle didn’t defend her remarks.
“Look this was bad. I can’t sugarcoat it,” Solis Doyle said on HLN this week. “She was wrong and clearly it’s not helpful to Democrats going into the midterms and certainly not going into 2020.”
Solis Doyle added: “She’s put herself in a position where Democrats are going to have to distance themselves from these remarks and distance themselves from her, particularly those Democrats that are running in the states that Donald Trump won.”
Like Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., who is up for re-election, come the midterms in November, in a state Trump won by 19 points.
“Those are kind of fighting words for me, because I’m partial to Missouri voters,” McCaskill told The Washington Post. “I think they were expressing their frustration with the status quo.”
Clinton is one of the few failed Presidential candidates whose popularity has decreased since their defeat.
And Democrats like McCaskill – who are running in red states – know that every time Clinton opens her mouth it reminds voters of why they don’t like Democrats in the first place.
The best thing that could happen for Republicans is that Clinton continues making public appearances through the 2018 midterms.
What do you think? Will Hillary weigh down Democrats in the midterms?
