Hillary Clinton: Trump’s Inaugural Address Was ‘A Cry From The White-Nationalist Gut’

10

Former secretary of state Hillary Clinton said Sunday that racial grievances had a significant influence on the 2016 presidential election and continue to be stoked by President Donald Trump.

“He was quite successful in referencing a nostalgia that would give hope, comfort, settle grievances for millions of people who were upset about gains that were made by others,” Clinton said on CBS’s “Sunday Morning” ahead of the Tuesday release of her campaign memoir, “What Happened.”

Host Jane Pauley replied, “What you’re saying is millions of white people.”

“Millions of white people, yeah,” Clinton said. “Millions of white people.”

Clinton also criticized Trump’s address at his inauguration, which she attended in January out of what she deemed a sense of duty, as a speech that spoke to the anger of some white voters.

“I’m a former first lady, and former presidents and first ladies show up,” Clinton said. “It’s part of the demonstration of the continuity of our government. And so there I was, on the platform, you know, feeling like an out-of-body experience. And then his speech, which was a cry from the white-nationalist gut.”

Clinton’s remarks on Sunday came a little more than a year after she gave a major campaign speech in which she described the “disturbing” connection between Trump’s campaign and the “alt-right,” a movement associated with white nationalism.

“He is taking hate groups mainstream and helping a radical fringe take over the Republican Party,” Clinton said in Reno, Nevada, last year. “His disregard for the values that make our country great is profoundly dangerous.”

Trump responded at the time by saying that Clinton was using the “oldest play in the Democratic playbook.”

“She paints decent Americans, you, as racists,” Trump told a crowd in Manchester, New Hampshire, after her speech.

  1. For someone who professes to be the smartest woman in the world, she is as dumb as they come. All she does is revert to name calling. Deplorables, racists, chauvinists, disturbing, homophobe, etc… She had no substance. She ran strictly on being the first woman to become President. It was her god given right.

  2. Is there ANYONE or ANYTHING she hasn’t blamed for her loss?? She’s completed her transition into an utter laughingstock – it’d be hard for her to come across any worse than she does now.

    Let’s see, last I knew, Hillary has blamed (in no particular order) – and I’m sure I’m missing a lot:
    Democrats
    DNC for supposedly being broke
    Russians
    Angry people
    Hateful people
    Women
    Women’s March marchers
    Misogynists
    Fake News
    Prejudice
    Bigotry
    Journalists for “ambush” interviews
    Deplorable people
    Racists
    Vast right wing conspiracy
    Bill Clinton
    Obama

  3. Hillary!
    In your own words,
    “WHAT DIFFERENCE, AT THIS POINT, DOES IT MAKE?”

    Donald Trump is the President.

    The silent majority yelled on November 8, 2016, for several reasons.

    -The border is dangerous.

    -Our cities are collapsing (Detroit, Baltimore, Philadelphia, St. Louis)

    -Too many Americans are broke.

    -Affordable healthcare is expensive. Mine is $650/month now.

    -And Hillary is corrupt.

    8 years of lies and even more of Liberal corruption made Trump possible. Thank G*d we will have some real leadership in office for the next 8 years albeit quite a bit loony.

  4. Exactly one year and one day after Hillary Clinton shot herself in the foot with her “Basket of deplorables” comment, she demonstrates that the backlash taught her… nothing whatsoever.
    Yep, “…millions of people* who were upset about gains that were made by others**” are why Saint Hillary lost.
    *white people
    **nonwhite people

  5. Hillary, you owe it to yourself. Prove it yourself. Go go through the reader’s comments of all websites reporting your disgraceful grumblings and you’ll understand why you lost in a landslide.
