Failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton recently explained that she lost because everyone living in flyover country is a backwards hillbilly.

There's all that red in the middle, where Trump won. "And part of that is an identification with the Republican Party, and a sort of ongoing pressure to vote the way your husband, your boss, your son, whoever, believes you should". "You don't like black people getting rights, you don't like women getting jobs, you don't want to see that Indian-American succeeding more than you are, whatever your problem is, I'm going to solve it". "Honestly, I have to tell you".

She said the US was home to hard-working, law-abiding immigrants from around the world, including Latin America, India and China, and that Trump's campaign of "Make America Great Again" was backward. You don't like women, you know, getting jobs?

We're aware that some elected officials-perhaps more than a few-regard the average voter with contempt.

Former Trump White House deputy assistant Sebastian Gorka said, "It's only an abuse of power if she thinks that having the last name Clinton means that she is above the law".

"You don't like to hear me say this, but she did win by 3 million more votes", she added. She won places that optimistic, which is, you know, better than all those places that have been struggling for decades.

She went on: "But what the map doesn't show you is that I won the places that represent two-thirds of America's gross domestic product".

During the presidential campaign, cameras caught Clinton leaving the 9/11 memorial in Manhattan and collapsing into the arms of Secret Service agents as she got into a waiting van. "He really likes their authoritarian posturing and behavior", she said during the event, The Washington Post reported. "Where governments lag like our own, business leaders and activists have stepped up to take action", she said.

It's hard not to read Clinton's comments as an argument that her votes were more valuable - or at least more productive - than were Trump's.

Hillary Clinton has slipped on a set of stairs yet again, just five months after breaking her toe in London. "It's bad, you can't vote for that, '" she complained.
