Hillary Clinton Not Just Falling Down Stairs, But Falling Apart Before Our Very Eyes
It wasn’t in India where Hillary Clinton first blamed ‘pressure’ from men for why white women voted for Trump.

Clinton first tried blaming pressure from men for women in voting against her in 2017—but ‘fact-checking’ snopes.com was quick to deny it in this Sept. 15, 2017 headline: ‘A viral Facebook quote misquotes the 2016 Democratic presidential candidate’.

It was no less than barefaced Fake News in action!


“In September 2017, a purported quote from Hillary Clinton began spreading widely on Facebook in which the former Democratic presidential candidate appears to claim that women who voted for Donald Trump did so under pressure from the men around them:  (Snopes)

“Women voted against me because they caved in to pressure from their husbands, fathers, boyfriends and male bosses.”

“This is not, in fact, a direct quote from Clinton; it is instead an oversimplified version of something she said during an interview with National Public Radio that was published on 12 September 2017.”

“The quote that spread widely on Facebook should not be attributed to Hillary Clinton, because she didn’t say those exact words and was quoting someone else to begin with — and she pointedly did not use the word “caved”.


We won’t bore you with the boring Snopes mansplaining explanation when Clinton responded to NPR interviewer Rachel Martin who had asked her whether she believed that sexism played a role in her defeat to Donald Trump when Clinton recounted a conversation with Facebook’s Sheryl Sandberg, but you can hear it all here (3:10 mark):

“…Sheryl ended this really sobering conversation by saying that “Women will have no empathy for you, because they will be under tremendous pressure — and I’m talking principally about white women — tremendous pressure from fathers and husbands and boyfriends and male employers not to vote for the girl.” (snopes.com)

Oddly enough it was exactly Sandberg’s words that Clinton used during a conference in Mumbai, India.

“During her appearance in India over the weekend, Clinton claimed she lost the 2016 presidential race in part because white women didn’t stand up to the men in their lives pressuring them to vote for Donald Trump. (FoxNews, March 13, 2018)

“We do not do well with white men and we don’t do well with married, white women,” Clinton said at a conference in Mumbai, India. “And part of that is an identification with the Republican Party, and a sort of ongoing pressure to vote the way that your husband, your boss, your son, whoever, believes you should.”

“Clinton had been asked why about 52 percent of white women voted for Trump, despite the “Access Hollywood” tape showing him using vulgar language in the days before the election.

“Interviewed on stage by India Today editor-in-chief Aroon Purie, Clinton accused Trump of running a “backwards” campaign that appealed to racists and misogynists.
“I won the places that represent two-thirds of America’s gross domestic product,” Clinton said. “So I won the places that are optimistic, diverse, dynamic, moving forward. And his whole campaign, ‘Make America Great Again,’ was looking backwards.”

“She claimed Trump’s message to voters was: “You know, you didn’t like black people getting rights, you don’t like women, you know, getting jobs. You don’t want, you know, to see that Indian American succeeding more than you are.”

“During the campaign, Clinton apologized for her “basket of deplorables” remark, where she argued Trump’s supporters were driven “racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic” beliefs.


Notice how a pandering Clinton couldn’t resist throwing in the line “to see that Indian American succeeding more than you are”.

Nor was Clinton’s claim that white women voters were ‘pressured’ by husbands to vote against her the only deja vu during the India trip.

Clinton, wobbly on her feet during the 2016 presidential campaign particularly on stairs, fell twice coming down the stairs at —- even though being held up by two burly ‘men folk’.

The whole world now knows that Hillary Clinton is not just falling down stairs, she’s falling apart before our very eyes.
