Clinton: Some women 'disrespected themselves' at Trump campaign rallies [View all]

Source: The Hill


Hillary Clinton condemned the behavior of some women supporting now President Trump in an interview on Saturday, saying she does not understand why they would publicly disrespect themselves.

"When I see women doing that, I think why are they publicly disrespecting themselves? Why are they opening the door to have someone say that about them in their workplace? In a community setting? Do they not see the connection their?" Clinton told MSNBC's Joy Reid on "AM Joy."

"And I think that's one of the problems with sexism. We had such a public and still an ongoing movement to expand civil rights. Again, I'm proud of the progress, but we still have a lot of problems we have to confront," she continued.

Clinton made the comments when she was responding to Reid, who asked how she felt about people at Trump's often raucous campaign rallies, who took part in chanting "lock her up," and using profanity to make fun and disparage her. "It was deeply troubling on several levels. And I try to unpack this, because first of all it's not pleasant to be called names and to be subjected to the kind of insults that come across the online media all the time, which we see when women express an opinion," Clinton said

Clinton: 'Certainly a lot of evidence' Trump is appealing to white supremacists


Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton said in an interview that aired on Saturday there is "a lot of evidence" that President Trump appeals to white supremacists.

"I certainly think there is a lot of evidence as to how he has behaved historically, during the campaign, and as president, that he is appealing to those who are [white supremacists]," Clinton told MSNBC's Joy Reid on "AM Joy."

"Now, I can't look into his heart. I can't say what he really feels, because I think he is such a political opportunist, that if he could get you know, votes and loyalty from a different direction he would probably go there," she continued. "But he started off from the very first day attacking Mexicans, calling them rapists. He had dog whistles that got increasingly louder on immigrants and Latinos and African-Americans and women and Muslims and the whole panoply of scapegoats that he was holding out to his supporters as the explanation for whatever their grievance was," she said.

Clinton's comments come during a tour promoting her new book "What Happened," which documents the 2016 campaign and loss to Trump.
