Hillary: Women Who Support Trump Are 'Publicly Disrespecting Themselves'

Is there no end to Hillary Clinton’s bitterness over losing the presidential election? I get it, though. I mean, if I just knew I was going to win an election and I didn’t, I might be bitter as well.

However, when you couple the pure arrogance of just knowing you’re going to be president with the narcissism of thinking absolutely nothing about your loss is your fault, you get quite a recipe for just why she lost in the first place.

Hillary is continuing her attacks on her opponents, this time focusing on female Trump supporters.

Hillary Clinton spoke about her thoughts on what she viewed as sexist comments by President Donald Trump and women who continued to support him.

“When I see women doing that, I think why are they publicly disrespecting themselves? Why are they opening the door to have someone say that about them in their workplace? In a community setting? Do they not see the connection there?” Clinton said in an interview on AM Joy.

She added that the fight against sexism is ongoing, even for women. She also pointed out that, while more women voted for her, she lost white women’s vote. However, she said progress was still made because she won more votes from white women than former President Barack Obama did.

“We had such a public and still an ongoing movement to expand civil rights. Again, I’m proud of the progress, but we still have a lot of problems we have to confront,” Clinton told Joy Reid during the interview.

The biggest problem we need to confront is a former candidate who actually thinks people who disagree with her political positions are somehow disrespecting themselves.

I’ve spoken with many conservative and libertarian women since November. Those who support Trump tend to support him in spite of any such flaws in his character because his positions most closely align with their own. For those who don’t, the issue is that they disagree with him on key positions.

Isn’t that supposed to be how we determine which candidates to support?

Hillary is essentially saying that the presence of a vagina should trump (pun intended) any and all positions someone might have because Donald Trump said some bad things. She can’t fathom that the reason she lost among white women is because her stated positions didn’t align with those women’s positions. Nothing more, nothing less.

But then again, what do you expect from the woman nominated by a party that seems completely driven by identity over everything else?
