Well, that was quick. Hillary Clinton’s instantly infamous follow-up to the likewise infamous “basket of deplorables” comment has already been turned into a ready-made political ad against one of her fellow Democrats, who’s recently been trying to distance herself from the increasingly toxic twice-failed presidential candidate.
A new ad run by the likely opponent of Democratic Senator Claire McCaskell, Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley, uses Clinton’s comments about “all that red in the middle where Trump won” she made at a conference in India last week to portray McCaskill as a Middle America-resenting elitist, like the woman she worked so hard to get elected president.
The ad opens with a teaser of Clinton’s remarks in front of audience in Mumbai, India on March 10: “If you look at the map of the United States, there’s all that red in the middle where Trump won,” says Clinton. . .
Clinton’s disparaging comments about Middle America aren’t the only ones she made during her trip to India that have spurred widespread condemnation. The would-be “First Woman President” also insulted women who voted for Trump, and women in general.
“We do not do well with white men and we don’t do well with married, white women,” Clinton said. “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.” (Read more from “Hillary’s Insulting Middle America Comments Already Turned Into Brutal Political Ad” HERE)
