A new audio release reveals Clinton saying in February that Bernie Sanders supporters are frustrated because they’re wasting their degrees pitying themselves in their parents’ basements.
“Some are new to politics completely. They’re children of the Great Recession,” Clinton said.
“And they are living in their parents’ basement. They feel they got their education and the jobs that are available to them are not at all what they envisioned for themselves. And they don’t see much of a future”
Sanders supporters certainly won’t appreciate hearing Clinton portray them in such a depressing and lethargic light. Apparently, you’d have to be a desperate neophyte leech to want to vote for Bernie Sanders.
Clinton can’t imagine anyone with any worth supporting anyone but her.
If you support Trump, you’re stupid, and if you supported Bernie, you need an intervention from Mom and Dad.
The Washington Examiner is reporting:
Audio from the February fundraiser, which was held at the Virginia home of former U.S. ambassador Beatrice Welters, was released Friday by the Washington Free Beacon.
Clinton said, “So that is a mindset that is really affecting their politics. And so if you’re feeling like you’re consigned to, you know, being a barista, or you know, some other job that doesn’t pay a lot, and doesn’t have some other ladder of opportunity attached to it, then the idea that maybe, just maybe, you could be part of a political revolution is pretty appealing.”
“So I think we should all be really understanding of that and should try to do the best we can not to be, you know, a wet blanket on idealism. We want people to be idealistic. We want them to set big goals. But to take what we can achieve now and try to present them as bigger goals,” she added, contrasting her campaign to the Vermont senator’s.
So first she calls Bernie supporters basement dwellers, then she calls Sanders himself a “wet blanket.” Well, that’s the kind of mud slinging you have to do when you believe you’re destined to be president.
Now that Sanders supporters are free to listen to her patronizing, back handed insults, Clinton’s wreck of a campaign is about to get even messier.
