Hillary Used “Deplorables” Line Because Her Elitist Friends Loved It

A new book out by New York Times reporter Amy Chozick, Chasing Hillary: Ten Years, Two Presidential Campaigns, and One Intact Glass Ceiling – doesn’t sound biased, does it? – reports that Hillary Clinton’s “deplorables” comment about half of Donald Trump’s voters was road tested first with her elitist friends.

According to the Washington Examiner:

Campaign Manager Robby Mook split the opposition into three groups: 1) “Republicans who hated her, 2) Voters “who feel that the government has let them down, the economy has let them down, nobody cares about them,” and 3) “The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic.”

Clinton and company packaged that last group up and put them in a basket, a basket of deplorables.

“The Deplorables always got a laugh, over living-room chats in the Hamptons, at dinner parties under the stars on Martha’s Vineyard, over passed hors-d’oeuvres in Beverly Hills, and during sunset cocktails in Silicon Valley,” Chozick writes.

They liked it, so of course it was fine. I mean, this is true Marie Antoinette stuff, isn’t it?

This is no accident or misfortune for Hillary. It is a reflection of attitudes she harbored which, ironically enough, were not shared by the billionaire candidate she faced who had more connection to average voters and a lot less in common with the Hamptons crowd than she did.

The Long Roster of Those Hillary Blames for Her Loss

The Daily Mail has assembled a list of all the people and entities Hillary Clinton has blamed so far for her loss in the 2016 election.

. . . And on and on and on and on.

Well, here’s who I’m going with as the person to blame.

I know I’ve run this before, but in case you missed it . . .

Sessions: Federal Prosecutor Probing FBI; No Special Counsel fo Now

According to CNN:

Attorney General Jeff Sessions revealed Thursday that Utah’s top federal prosecutor, John Huber, is investigating a cluster of Republican-driven accusations against the FBI and has decided that no second special counsel is needed — at least for now.

Huber has been looking into allegations that the FBI abused its powers in surveilling a former Trump campaign adviser, and more should have been done to investigate Hillary Clinton’s ties to a Russian nuclear energy agency, but his identity had remained a secret.
But Sessions’ decision to stop short of formally appointing a special counsel like Robert Mueller, detailed in a lengthy written response to three Republican chairmen on Capitol Hill, will likely anger those in the GOP who have recently ramped up calls to investigate claims of political bias at the nation’s top law enforcement agencies.

Sessions said he will rely on Huber’s review to determine if a special counsel is needed . . .

It also comes one day after the Justice Department’s internal watchdog office confirmed it would review how the FBI obtained a warrant to monitor Trump foreign policy aide Carter Page, as well as the bureau’s relationship with Christopher Steele, the author of the Trump dossier.
