What Hillary Really Thinks of Bernie’s Supporters

From the Daily Caller

A leaked audio recording of a conversation between Hillary Clinton and campaign donors reveals the Democratic presidential nominee calling Bernie Sanders supporters basement-dwellers who seek out a “political revolution.”

“They’re children of the Great Recession,” Clinton said of Bernie fans. “And they are living in their parents’ basement. They feel they got their education, and the jobs that are available to them are not at all what they envisioned for themselves.”

One would think by now that politicians would understand that nothing they say is ever truly in private, except, perhaps, when they are speaking to their family and very close friends. It isn’t like people have to buy a recorder and secretly place it in the room. Almost everybody now carries a recorder with days of recording storage and a fantastic microphone. All it takes is one person recording for either malicious purposes or even just as a personal souvenir because they are meeting with a VIP.

So there it is. Frankly, Hillary is right. What she didn’t do is connect the dots that the very policies she supports led to their frustration.
