Hillary Clinton is still not over losing the presidential election and not capturing 100 percent of the female vote. The snub was so grating to her that she is lashing out saying any woman who supports President Trump is “publicly disrespecting herself.”
In a tv interview with progressive CNN host Joy Reid, Clinton unleashed on the president and women who cast their vote in support of him or support his agenda as Fortune reports:
“When I see women doing that, I think why are they publicly disrespecting themselves? Why are they opening the door to have someone say that about them in their workplace? In a community setting? Do they not see the connection there?" Clinton said in an interview on AM Joy.
Unlike other presidential candidates who lost their elections and quietly disappeared (at least for a while), Clinton is hell-bent on deriding President Trump at every chance. She says of him:
"I really had such deep doubts about his preparation, his temperament, his character, his experience, but he’s been even worse than I thought he would be."
Clinton won the female vote capturing 54 percent of women according to exit polling, but lost key constituents such as white women. Some 53 percent of white female voters supported President Trump.
Clinton continues to blame “sexism” among many factors that lost her the election, but gender may not have been a polarizing as her foggy memory might lead her to believe. Six in 10 women were bothered by how candidate Trump treated women and four in 10 men were bothered. For women, that was a majority but not an overwhelming number.
For Clinton and some feminists, white heterosexual women strayed from the herd in support of Trump because they weren’t voting for themselves by for the men in their lives. Clinton noted in a separate interview:
“[Women] will be under tremendous pressure – and I’m talking principally about white women. They will be under tremendous pressure from fathers and husbands and boyfriends and male employers not to vote for ‘the girl’,” she said in an interview as part of a tour promoting her new memoir of the 2016 campaign.
Clinton and some social scientists, who blame women voting against their interests, start from a very flawed and dangerous assumption or belief: that all women should think alike and vote alike. They say the problem with women dating back to suffrage is that we lack “social identity bonds.”
Women are not a homogenous group and should not be expected to vote for a candidate just because she’s a woman. A good candidate who speaks to the realities of women and their values, who happens to be a woman,should be rewarded at the polls. Clinton simply was not this.
Groupthink is a dangerous tool employed by the left to divide Americans and turn them against each other — in this case women against men. We need women to be independent thinking and support the issues and policies that are best for themselves and their families. The messenger doesn't have to wear a skirt, but they do need to be right.
