Dems are angry over Hillary Clinton's latest comments

On the same India trip Hillary Clinton suggested that the states that voter for her were more economically advanced than those that voted for President Trump. That comment also irked Democrats who are trying to make inroads in places like Pennsylvania

Clinton went on to say that white women voters should fight "ongoing pressure to vote the way that your husband, your boss, your son, whoever, believes you should".

WaPo wrote that one senior Democratic Senate strategist said that if the Republicans believe these comments will help them win "they're more desperate than I thought" and her words "will have precisely zero effect".

'That's a lot of states, ' the ex-aide added.

Clinton also suggested at the India Today Enclave that anyone who voted for Trump was less productive in less productive parts of the country and that they were attracted by the president's "backwards" message.

"I was on the way to winning until the combination of Jim Comey's letter on October 28 and Russian WikiLeaks raised doubts in the minds of people who were inclined to vote for me, but got scared off", she told an global women's summit in NY in May of previous year. Every time Hillary Clinton opens her mouth, we are reminded why we voted for Donald Trump.

A former Obama White House official said, 'If these statements are a form of catharsis, it would be in the Democratic Party's best interest for her to get these out of her system soon'.

Even some of Clinton's own former aides and surrogates say the former Democratic presidential nominee should back away from the discussion about her failed campaign because it's harmful to the party.

"We need leaders like her to look forward to 2020 and how to unify the party, not continue to re-litigate the past". You know: 'You didn't like black people getting rights, you don't like women getting jobs.

"At the RNC, we try not to continue to focus on Hillary Clinton". Democrats have been arguing for several months that her sentiments have been counterproductive to the party's rebuilding efforts - the party is working overtime to rebuild the blue wall throughout the Rust Belt that Democrats relied on to win elections.

That rhetoric drew a harsh rebuke from the "GOP War Room" channel on YouTube, which labeled her comments as "Dismissing America's Heartland to a foreign audience".

Clinton said the Republican president has "quite an affinity for dictators" and said Trump "really likes their authoritarian posturing and behavior". "The Democrat brand is isolated, elitist, and as out-of-touch as it ever has been". "I think they were expressing their frustration with the status quo".
