Clinton: 'I meant no disrespect' with Trump voter comments



Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is providing an explanation for controversial comments she made earlier this month about voters who supported President Trump during the 2016 election.

“I understand how some of what I said upset people and can be misinterpreted,” Clinton wrote in a lengthy Facebook post late Saturday explaining her remarks.

“I meant no disrespect to any individual or group. And I want to look to the future as much as anybody.”

Clinton was heavily criticized for the comments, in which she described the states that supported her during the election as more economically advanced than those that supported Trump.

“No, it’s not helpful at all,” Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) told “Fox News Sunday,” when asked about Clinton’s statements. “In fact, my friend Hillary Clinton is wrong.”

Clinton also implied that women who cast a ballot for Trump did so due to “ongoing pressure to vote the way that your husband, your boss, your son, whoever, believes you should.”

“As much as I hate the possibility, and hate saying it, it’s not that crazy when you think about our ongoing struggle to reach gender balance — even within the same household. I did not realize how hard it would hit many who heard it,” Clinton said in her explanation.

Clinton said she hopes the clarification “helps to explain the point I was trying to make.”

She's said it repeatedly, so she definitely meant it.

Oh BS, HRC!

She's backpedaling big time but she's also said these things before.

She is no supposed "feminist" I would care to know or lead the country I call home.

Hillary, I say this as someone who voted for you, and totally respects your career in public service -

You're going to have to learn how to shut the fuck up.

Doubtful that she can do that

Quoting MsDenuninani:

Not a Clinton or Trump fan. I voted for a Trump because he seemed the less evil of the two. He’s trying to screw up the country but Congress is keeping him in check.

She’s said that multiple times so she’s full of crap. No man tells me what to do. She needs to fade away.

She still can't understand why she didn't get elected, can she? 

Shit like that.  That's why.  

She's so damn awful.  She can't get out of her own way.  She honestly thinks she so much better than everyone else -- man I can't stand her.  

Not like I can stand the POTUS either -- but she's awful.

I totally agree.

I don't like the other comment though...the husband thing. 

Quoting owl0210: "states that supported her during the election as more economically advanced than those that supported Trump." She wasn't lying about that.
