I was never all that enthusiastic when voting for Mitt Romney in 2012 – but I never thought I’d be grateful to the former Massachusetts governor (and his family) for simply going away after losing. Can you imagine if he spent the next year on a media tour, expressing his bewilderment at his loss, hawking a book, and blasting everyone who voted against him as a racist, sexist, or manipulated by “fake news.”
Perhaps that’s because, unlike Hillary Clinton and co., Romney didn’t go into the election assuming a 100% chance of victory. There’s leaked footage of Bill and Hillary literally jumping for joy in celebration of her assumed victory on Election Day – and one can only imagine how those emotions changed as the results came in.
Since the election, Hillary has been trying to sell her new memoir “What Happened” – and it seems like she’s the only person in American who isn’t really sure. She’s blamed just about everyone for her loss, stopping short at herself, of course.
Her husband, meanwhile, slammed Trump in a speech at Georgetown University last night, marking the 25th anniversary of his securing the White House. (Or in other words, he gave a speech Hillary will never find herself giving).
According to The Hill, Clinton began his speech by stating of the media during his Presidency, “believe it for not, we thought it was pretty polarized” back in 1992. “The media was less polarized and a little straighter in the nature of the coverage, but we had income inequality, we had alienation, we had unequal opportunities, and we had a lot of social division,” Clinton said. “As we all know there’s big divide again today: about the fundamental character of America,” he added. “What are our responsibilities to each other in an age of unprecedented interdependence and globalization?”
Then he tied that into the 2016 election.
“In the last election, in the counties that Hillary carried, you find 64 percent of America’s GDP. In the more numerous, rural counties carried by President Trump, you find 36 percent of the GDP, even though the median income of a Trump voter was higher. What does that tell you?” Clinton asked. “Even poor people are more hopeful if they’re in a dynamic place,” he continued. “Being trapped with a lack of mobility is more damaging emotionally and makes you more vulnerable to false claims, from my point of view, than if you’re poor.”

You get it? If you voted for Trump, or liked his message, you were probably more susceptible to false information. And that means you’re dumb.

What’s funny is that Bill Clinton reportedly knew that Hillary made a fatal flaw in ignoring white middle class American communities. That’s ultimately what cost her the election.
