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.'”

Marianne I wonder where you get your info. Since president Obama took office, employment is up, stock market up, car industry up, everything is up. Housing up.
Margaret wrong. Hillary was referring to those making the racist comments and doing all the nasties that have been going on. Those things really are undeniable. Hillary wants free tuition for those whos parents make less than 125000. Research
Gary. Wrong. Research
That is so very wrong. Where do you get this c**p.
That’s so wrong. Research
I have done my research, Marleah Dailey, and I lived through all of it. She is a liar, a thief and a murderer.
There are nearly 95 million people unemployed or underemployed, Marleah Dailey. Obama administration’s manipulation of number is easy to verify IF you want accurate information. Stock market is the only thing up and if interest rates rise as they should, we will see hyperinflation because the market is being manipulates as are the interest rates. Car industry never paid back the billions they owe the American taxpayers, thus their numbers are up. Housing is up on variable rate loans again. If the interest rate goes up, many will again lose their houses. Your indicators all are surface indicators that were artificially manipulated and a deeper look will show this country is in trouble. But then you are defending a Democrat and lying is what they do.
Facts come from economists, not politicians.
Free anything means someone else pays for it Marleah Dailey. Free tuition is not worth the cost since it will be the middle-class who pays in higher taxes. Government interference in the school loan program singlehandedly cause the cost of higher education to go up. Research yourself. Getting your information from a politician is not getting fact, but getting their talking points which are nothing more than campaign promises.
