Democrats to Hillary: We’ve Moved on. Why Haven’t You?

The Democratic Party is growing upset with its former presidential nominee Hillary Clinton after comments she made during a recent trip to India regarding supporters of her former opponent, Donald Trump.

During a discussion at the India Today Conclave, Clinton suggested that women who voted for Trump did so out of some sort of “pressure to vote the way that your husband, your boss, your son, whoever, believes you should.”

While also adding that Trump supporters didn’t like African Americans “getting rights,” or women “getting jobs.”

These remarks have drawn a considerable amount of backlash from Democrats.

Patti Solis Doyle, who served as Clinton’s campaign manager in 2008, told HLN’s S.E. Cupp that “[Clinton] was wrong, and clearly it’s not helpful to Democrats going into the midterms, and certainly not going into 2020.”

“She’s put herself in a position where Democrats are going to have to distance themselves from these remarks and distance themselves from her,” Doyle added, “particularly those Democrats that are running in states that Donald Trump won, like Ohio and Pennsylvania and Wisconsin and Michigan.”

Another Clinton aide echoed Doyle’s remarks, telling The Hill, “She put herself in a position where [Democrats] from states that Trump won will have to distance themselves from her even more…That’s a lot of states.”

According to The Hill several other Democrats blasted Clinton for her unhelpful comments:

“Another Clinton surrogate questioned the decision making behind Clinton’s remarks. For months, some Democrats have been arguing that Clinton’s sentiments have been counterproductive to the party’s rebuilding efforts. And some have told her she should emulate former President Obama’s model to only make statements when it’s essential.”

“She’s annoying me. She’s annoying everyone, as far as I can tell,” said one 2016 Clinton surrogate. “Who lets her say these things?”

“I think the party has moved on from Hillary Clinton,” the former senior Clinton aide said.

Sadly for Democrats, it seems doubtful that Clinton will end her global whining tour anytime soon, as she’s scheduled to speak about democracy and her political career at Rutgers University at the end of the month.
