Leaked Audio Captures Hillary Saying Sanders Supporters Live “In Their Parents’ Basements”

Despite the spin on Hillary's remarks being put out by the media, there is no getting around how utterly disrespectful the former Secretary of State's comments were. After all, she wouldn't have waited until she was safely behind closed doors to make them if she didn't think there was anything offensive about them, right?

“‘There is a strain of, on the one hand, the kind of populist, nationalist, xenophobic, discriminatory kind of approach that we hear too much of from the Republican candidates,' she said. ‘And on the other side, there’s just a deep desire to believe that we can have free college, free healthcare, that what we’ve done hasn’t gone far enough, and that we just need to, you know, go as far as, you know, Scandinavia, whatever that means, and half the people don’t know what that means, but it’s something that they deeply feel.'

While stressing the need to not serve as a ‘wet blanket on idealism,' Clinton paints fans of the then-surging Vermont senator as political newbies attempting to deal with an economy that has fallen short of their expectations.

‘Some are new to politics completely. They’re children of the Great Recession. And they are living in their parents’ basement,' she said. ‘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.'

Clinton added: ‘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.'”
