Hillary Clinton Says Women Just ‘Misunderstood’ Her India Remarks [VIDEO]

The other day, VG writer Kim wrote about Hillary’s oh so lovely diss of women voters and flyover country while gallivanting around India dressed in sacks reminiscent of that ugly 1970’s couch everyone had.

Evidently Hillary didn’t like the reaction she got, so she ‘explained’ her comments in a Facebook post. You see, we women took her comments wrong or something, 

I was also asked about women, specifically white women, the majority of whom have not voted for Democrats in recent history. I did better with them than previous Democratic nominees, but still lost them overall to a candidate who relies on scare tactics and false attacks, masking the fact that he is otherwise no friend to most Americans.

I also mentioned something in passing that’s gotten a lot of negative attention: that there is anecdotal evidence and some research to suggest that women are unfortunately more swayed by men than the other way around. As much as I hate the possibility, and hate saying it, it’s not that crazy when you think about our ongoing struggle to reach gender balance – even within the same household. I did not realize how hard it would hit many who heard it. I was out there having a conversation, and this was one piece of a larger point about how Democrats need to do better with white women, because I know in my heart that Democrats have much more to offer them. Do I believe that some women look at a powerful woman and question whether she can lead, maybe voting for the man their husband is voting for instead? It may not be universally true or easy to hear, but yes, it’s a dynamic still at play in our society. I know this because even I spent parts of my life wondering if I could achieve the same as male leaders, and a lot of that insecurity stemmed from my gender and how society views women. When I was serving in various roles in public life, I was always more popular when I was working for or defending a man then when I was out there on my own. That’s the point I was making, in an effort to explain to an audience some of the many dynamics that have gone into these tumultuous last few years.

Let me see if I have this correct.

Women are swayed by men because some “research” and because someone said so

Gender balance in households is super difficult, especially if a woman is running for President

Democrats must teach women to accept and vote for a woman running for President even if their husband/brother/father/uncle/cousin won’t

It was because of how society looks at women that she lost

Oh and by the way, she lost because she was ALWAYS more popular when working for or defending a man. It was everyone else’s fault that they couldn’t handle the idea of her out on her own!

Working for a man led to her popularity! *Cough BENGHAZI *Cough

Defending a man? Two words: Bill Clinton

Oh but wait! 

I understand how some of what I said upset people and can be misinterpreted. I meant no disrespect to any individual or group. And I want to look to the future as much as anybody.


I have to say, definitely not offended by Hillary’s remarks. I’m laughing because she really can’t help herself! Seriously, she’s said and meant crap like this for YEARS. She meant it during the campaign when she called voters Deplorables. She meant it when she slammed stay at home moms with her baking cookies remarks during Bill’s first Presidential campaign. So, no what she says now, she meant exactly what she said in India. In other words,

‘I said that, but you deplorables and misguided women just don’t have the brains to understand what I really meant.’

Hillary as you continue your worldwide whine fest tour, let me give you something to think about. Many Deplorable women, including myself, know exactly who is to blame for not voting for you. Look in the mirror for your answer if you dare.

    She’s got to find some reason, any reason, why Her Inevitableness didn’t win. The possibility that she was just an unlikable candidate, well, that can’t be it.

    The statistic that Donald Trump received 52% of the votes cast by white women ignores the fact that, with the minor party candidates in the race, 57% of white women voted against her.

  • Mike says:

    “I want to look to the future as much as anybody” so here are a few thousand words on why I’m bitter about the past!

  • Skillyboo says:

    Evidently she believes all women should subscribe to democrat groupthink.

  • Brian Brandt says:

    Gotta say, that really is a dress-and-a-half, ain’t it?

    • Scott says:

      Label says “Omar the tent maker”, that or Serta, as it was removed from a ’70’s couch, as Nina so appropriately pointed out!

  • Fen says:

    Imagine a Fortune 500 exec who cant fathom why the Product isn’t selling… 18 MONTHS IN.

    Hillary would have been fired for incompetence a year ago.

    I voted against her corruption, but i had no idea just how stupid she is.

  • John Reece says:

    Apparently Bill’s veganism-induced weight loss went straight to Hillary’s hips. Meow.

    Remember Sam Jackson’s line from ‘Pulp Fiction’ about his girlfriend being vegetarian pretty much making him a vegetarian? It curiously doesn’t seem to apply to the Clintons. They must not be eating together much.

  • Who dresses this frump?

    • champ says:

      She’s wearing an elongated right sleeve to cover the cast on her right wrist that she broke when she fell in the bathtub after downing three liters of chardonnay…

  • thesepeoplesmh says:

    I always say, nobody hates women more than feminists do, going all the way back to Simone de Beauvoir

  • mhjhnsn says:

    Of course she really believes exactly what she said, and no, nobody misread her.

    Obama’s 2008 reference to “bitter clingers” and Romney’s 2012 reference to “47%” were made in private fund-raising parties with rich donors and were supposed to not be recorded. They may or may not reveal the real beliefs of the candidate, they were clearly targeted at the immediate audience of rich donors.

    Hillary’s comments about most Trump supporters being “deplorable” and “irredeemable,” and now this in India, were made in public events and there is no doubt they were intentional. When she says she was misinterpreted, she is telling us that she would like to walk it back from those who were offended, but the original words remain a “dog whistle” to her base supporters.

    In that vein, it is interesting that the left accuses the right of “dog whistles,” but that is mostly teh left projecting its strategies onto others.
