Video: Hillary Almost Falling On Her Face Symbolizes Failed Campaign And The Nonsense She Spewed In India
Matt Vespa|Posted: Mar 13, 2018 2:05 PM

https://townhall.com/tipsheet/mattve...d-the-n2460293

Hillary Clinton is in India and she almost had a very nasty spill down some stairs.

The former first lady and two-time presidential loser almost fell on her face twice while descending about 15 steps visiting Jahaz Mahal in Dhar’s Mandu. Her top aide Huma Abedin was right behind her. The American Mirror captured the possible nasty spill, but it’s also a great image that says so much about her campaign and the nonsense she doled out at an event in Mumbai. India Today’s Aroon Purie interviewed her. He asked if America deserved a Trump presidency. Lauretta covered this yesterday, where the former secretary of state said of course not. Oh, and she decided to reload her deplorables attack on the people who voted for him:



Quote:
”His whole campaign: 'Make America Great Again' was looking backwards. You know, you didn't like black people getting rights, you don't like women, you know, getting jobs, you don't want to you know see that Indian American succeeding more than you are, whatever your problem is, I'm going to solve it.' So it was a symptom."

Oh, but she had more before this slice of nonsense (via NTK Network):

Quote:
If you look at the map of the United States, there’s all that red in the middle where Trump won. I win the coasts, I win Illinois, I win Minnesota, places like that,” Clinton said.

“What the map doesn’t show you is that I won the places that represent two-thirds of America’s gross domestic product,” Clinton explained. “So I won the places that are optimistic, diverse, dynamic, moving forward. And his whole campaign, ‘Make America Great Again,’ was looking backwards.”
Alas, folks—why her almost falling down some stairs is emblematic. The first trip up was her pretty much calling half the country deplorable for supporting Trump. Also, totally avoiding the Rust Belt and rural America, as if the former was already locked up and the latter totally lost to the GOP. It’s about margins. If Hillary had lost white working class voters by a two-to-one margin, instead of her three-to-one with Trump, she would have won the race. It’s not hard. Obama did this twice. He knew he probably wasn’t going to win rural America, but losing by 25 points instead of 50, plus winning the areas that she so eloquently described as the only places that matter in the U.S., is how Obama was able to defeat the GOP in both presidential contests. Oh, and he also had an economic message, had political skill, and drove an appealing message to voters; Clinton had none of that because she has no political talent, she had no message, and she wonders why she lost. I’m sorry—I forgot; she takes responsibility for her shocking loss to Trump, but the FBI, Russia, James Comey, Bernie Sanders, Barack Obama, Joe Biden, the Democratic National Committee, and Wikileaks are to blame too. Did the Kremlin tell her to avoid Michigan? No, she was getting dirt from them on Trump through the services of Fusion GPS, who hired a former British spook to collect the data. That sort of sounds like collusion, right? Or at least according to liberal Democrat standards set forth by members of said party and the media. Lady, own it—and move on.

If we were to apply something to go with her second almost trip up down the stairs, it would be her explicitly anti-rural bias. I won the coasts, the cities, and a few states in between—you know the real places that matter in America.

Northeastern elitism reeks with these remarks. I know—I grew up in the Northeast and let me tell you, these people still don’t know that some folks in this country still need to hunt in order to survive, especially during the winter.

No, hunting didn’t just stop after the colonial era and the days of Daniel Boone.


Also, it’s another deplorables swipe without saying the word. The rural areas are full of country bumpkins and racists, who aren’t educated like us highly educated, morally superior, and insufferably snobby people. I may have lost, but I won the real Americans in November 2016. No—you didn’t, lady. You just lost. Is there some solace in how close it was in some states? Maybe—but you still lost. That’s like saying, well, we lost the football game but we scored four touchdowns—the ones that really mattered. It embodies how the professional left has taken over the Democratic Party, who are anti-rural, hate rural voters, yet totally unaware that rural voters are the folks they desperately need to win back. Take a look at Texas. Democrats cast a lot of ballots in the primaries last Tuesday. Why were there over 500,000 more Republican votes cast? Rural Texas is a GOP stronghold. Rural voters are movable. They will vote Democratic if you give them a reason, have an agenda that isn’t something out of far left social justice warrior’s diary, and have quality candidate who can a) win; and b) doesn’t bash them for being less than those coastal elites. So, take notes rural and Trump voters. Democrats think you’re less than, live in backwards, Deliverance-esque surroundings, and are just relics of an old America that should die out and be relegated to economic destitution. Anyone remember when she wanted to put coalminers out of business?

Huh. AP’s writes up Clinton’s remarks in the most benign/favorable way. No mention of her insulting roughly half of the American electorate as “backwards,” racist, xenophobic, misogynistic, etc. https://t.co/R8Le8iJelB

Hillary may have vented after she lost. She wrote a book about why she sucked in 2016. And now, long after the election is over, she tears into Trump and his supporters again. It’s unseemly. It’s being a sore loser. It’s pathetic. Hillary almost falling down those steps captures her rather ugly descent since leaving public life. Still, the fact remains; her stumbling is totally her doing.

How dare those rural voters live where they live, breathe our air, and act they way they do compared to us forward thinking (and that’s debatable) folks. Yes, the same group of people who are still wondering if there are two genders. It’s just a friendly reminder that liberalism is nothing more, as George Will noted, than the politics of condescension.

Granted, not all are like that. Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-MI) warned fellow Democrats that Trump could win. She was ignored. She laments about how identity politics has hijacked the Democratic Party. She also strongly dislikes when people call Trump supporters racist because it is so easy and wrong. The Michigan Democrat added that her party could learn something from Trump: show you care, have a message, that you get these peoples’ concerns (the economic issues), and have some empathy. Trump did that in his Rust Belt excursions. Dingell said her party should do the same.

Katie will have more on this:

Yeah, she went there.

Parting thought: Hillary Clinton will never be president of the United States. That still brings a smile to my face.

Quote:
It blows my mind that Hillary still thinks "Yeah I lost - but I won all the smart, productive places and he won all the backwards, racist, sexist places" is the messaging she should be going with. This is what it's like to be so rich and powerful no one ever tells you to shut up.

I like Michelle Malkin's new name for her: "blamery". She'll still be assigning blame on her deathbed, or maybe a stairway!!

Stop bending the elbow so much Blamery and put the bottle of Captain Morgan down. It is unbecoming.

We need a contest to find out what is Hillary's drink of choice.
I would vote anything that's handy!
Or maybe she is on the ganja?

Maybe she was just ducking incoming sniper fire, or maybe she was just a bit drunk.
