Former President Bill Clinton reportedly slammed his wife’s 2016 presidential campaign as being so bad they “could not sell p***y on a troop train.”

The crass comments were revealed in a new book by journalist Ryan Grim titled: “The Squad: AOC and the Hope of a Political Revolution.”

The target of Clinton’s ire was Team Hillary’s use of identity politics against her main competition for the Democrat nomination, Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT).

Grim writes that the campaign’s insistence on such tactics “likely pushed moderate voters paying only marginal attention to the campaign towards Sanders, who spoke like a normal person.”

Hillary, by contrast, delved into what Democrat strategist James Carville would call “faculty lounge” or elitist language.

“Former President Bill Clinton, surveying the landscape and the ham-handed efforts at identity politics was bereft,” Grim explained, “lamenting to a longtime friend in the fall of 2016 that Hillary’s campaign ‘could not sell p***y on a troop train.'”

Hillary’s Campaign Couldn’t Sell P***y On A Troop Train, Says Bill

Carville, for years after Hillary’s humiliating defeat, harped on his party’s insistence on using “wokeness” as a political strategy.

“You ever get the sense that people in faculty lounges in fancy colleges use a different language than ordinary people?” he asked in an interview with Vox.

Even well after the election, Hillary continued to accuse Sanders and his supporters of misogyny. She couldn’t loosen her grip on the identity politics messaging.

“He (Bernie) was in Congress for years. He had one senator support him. Nobody likes him, nobody wants to work with him, he got nothing done,” she ranted in a documentary which she later reiterated in 2020.

She would later suggest Bernie’s camp had a pattern of online attacks directed at his competitors, “particularly the women.”

Why Are We Shocked?

Numerous social media users were surprised by Bill’s use of a term referencing something he spent every day of his adult life chasing.

It’s not the first time that we’ve heard such stories, however. Former President Donald Trump certainly got heat from the media for engaging in what he called “locker room banter” but Bill has his own history.

In fact, a claim that surfaced in a Daily Mail report in 2013 suggested that Bill had described his wife in a way nobody with functioning brain cells would ever want to hear.

It wasn’t just selling a message that Hillary’s campaign struggled with. It was an entire strategy.

The former First Lady’s top advisers on the campaign told Hillary to “run up” the popular vote count and completely ignore the electoral vote.

Bill had repeatedly warned his wife that her 2016 campaign was setting her up for failure by not courting white working-class voters.

“In general, Bill Clinton’s viewpoint of fighting for the working class white voters was often dismissed with a hand wave by senior members of the team as a personal vendetta to win back the voters who elected him, from a talented but aging politician who simply refused to accept the new Democratic map,” Politico wrote.

He might have been aging, but Bill would have at least been able to sell something on a troop train.
