Jennifer Palmieri: Doubles Down On Claim That Trump Gave A Platform To ‘White Supremacists’

On Monday, Hillary Clinton’s communication director Jennifer Palmier appeared on MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show” to discuss the presidential election results.

Palmieri has made some news since the election. While speaking at a Harvard University forum in early December, Palmieri got into a heated exchange with Donald Trump’s campaign manager Kellyanne Conway.

“If providing a platform for white supremacists makes me a brilliant strategist, a brilliant tactician, I am glad to have lost,” Palmieri said to Conway.

During Palmieri’s interview with Maddow, she seemed to double down on these remarks in a slightly more diplomatic way saying, “There are these tensions in America just across the board, every age group, every demographic, that have boiled to the surface and I think that those are the fissures that laid bear. I do think the Donald Trump campaign bears some responsibility for empowering some bad voices that assisted that.”
