Clintons are 'a virus in the Democratic Party', says Meghan McCain

Hillary Clinton

Clinton's former aides and surrogates bristled at Clinton's remarks at a conference in India this week, where the former 2016 presidential candidate said states that supported her in 2016 are "more economically advanced" than those that went for Trump.

The left-leaning Washington Post came to Hillary Clinton's defense Wednesday; backing-up the failed presidential nominee's comments that "white women" were pressured into voting for Donald Trump by their husbands and sons.

"So I won the places that are optimistic, diverse, dynamic, moving forward", Clinton said, referring to the coastal, densely populated regions of the country that voted for her campaign. "Whatever your problem is, I'm going to solve it", said Clinton, describing her version of Trump's "MAGA" message.

She said Trump's "Make America Great Again" campaign "was looking backwards", playing on what she said were feelings in the non-urban United States of voters who "didn't like black people getting rights", or women getting jobs.

But it was her comments about Trump voters that drew the ire of conservatives and ricocheted across social media.

"If these statements are a form of catharsis, it would be in the Democratic Party's best interest for her to get these out of her system soon".

Lahren argued that Democrats cannot win "middle America" unless they distance themselves from Clinton. "That's a lot of states".

She later warned: "If the [Democratic] Party is the party of the heathens, we're going to have Trump for another four years".

"At the RNC, we try not to continue to focus on Hillary Clinton".

"Putting aside how absurd and wrong she is, rhetoric like this is the reason Sen".

However, Hillary's longtime communications advisor Philippe Reines said "he understands 'why that man won in 2016′" and also understand "why he may win again in 2020". Jon Tester, a Democrat up for re-election in Trump-supporting Montana, 'was forced to release an ad today, 8 months before Election Day, attempting to highlight areas of agreement with President Trump'.

"Clinton has made comments like these before and has been criticized for them because they appear to place the blame for her loss on white women's inability to think independently about their vote". "The Democrat brand is isolated, elitist, and as out-of-touch as it ever has been".
