Clinton Team: Trump won because White Supremacists .. or something

The Clinton campaign manager used a historically cordial forum to level accusations at the Trump team that they only won because they ran a campaign that gave a platform to white supremacists and the “alt-right.”

Last night, the two campaign teams attended the Campaign Postmortem held every four years at Harvard’s Kennedy School which, in the past, has always been polite and focused on understanding which strategies worked and which didn’t during the campaign.

The winning team doesn’t usually gloat about their win and the losing staff doesn’t usually go into a full-on, accusatory and insulting meltdown – not so this time.

Clinton campaign chief Jennifer Palmieri turned the evening sour when she told  Trump manager Kellyanne Conway that she “would rather lose than win the way you guys did” and Palmieri said that Conway had provided “a platform for white supremacists.”

Conway rebutted by asking Palmieri if she thought perhaps “you could have just had a decent message for the white working-class voters?”

The Clinton team did everything but look inwards to find the reason they lost. Hillary Clinton was a terrible candidate that didn’t relate to working-class people and the issues they face every day, but team Clinton wasn’t about to admit that. In typical liberal form, their failures were someone else’s fault.

Kellyanne tried to explain to Ms. Palmieri that Trump had won because they focused on the electoral map.

“We did it by looking at the schedule and looking at, yes, the electoral map of 270 because that’s how you win the presidency,” Conway said.

Kellyanne explained that they went to places like Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania despite being  mocked by media and political experts for going to deep blue states.

Palmieri battled back with the same liberal elitist political correctness that lost them the campaign.

“His [Trump’s] language, his positions, that I believe are at odds with my values, American, of embracing diversity, inclusivity, equality,” Palmieri whined.

Jennifer choked up several times while leveling attacks at Trump and Steve Bannon. She focused on white supremacy, white nationalism, and the alt-right while leveling insulting accusations at the Trump team.

Conway and Bannon tried to focus the conversation on the strategy they used to win, but Clinton’s staff came ready to attack, not share.

Senior Clinton Advisor Karen Finney chimed in with utter disdain for the working class by saying Trump’s campaign brought about “the rise of the alt-right,” and that the President-elect’s real message was that “America is for white people.”

As insulting to working-class people as Finney’s comment is, she’s partially correct. Trump’s message resonated with white, working-class voters who had felt as though both parties had forgotten about them. Every policy discussion, every talking point, every agenda item for the last decade had been about helping everyone but them and about causes that weren’t of their concern.

While Democrats were focusing on Amnesty for illegal aliens, Black Lives Matter, the importation of Muslim refugees, Paris accords, bad trade agreements and placating Iran, Trump reached out to those that work at Carrier and Ford, that weld and assemble, pull coal from the ground and load trains – he had a real message for typical working-class folks.

It wasn’t that Trump made the case that America is now only for white people, but that white, working-class voters should feel like America is, once again, for them too.

  1. Ms. Palmieri , wow what a sorry a$$ looser . Kellyanne Conway was correct, Clinton thought she had it in the bag ( 270 ) electoral votes with her big liberal states and her Hollywood backers & performers and the party was already scheduled ( whoops ) Clinton ( Palmieri ) both forgot about the rest of the country !!
    And yes , Trump also received votes from middle America ( Obama ) supports that where also forgotten with ( hope & change ) they lost hope with no change in eight years . If you listen to Ms. Palmieri , stating she would have rather loose then run a campaign like Conway , give me a break she’s a looser face that needs to music .

  2. As the newly elected B.O.(for told John McCain, “WE won”….(for now) we’re entitled to ‘gloat’ just a little and can begin to put political correctness in file 13 where it belongs…Did either of the ladies ‘act’ like a lady? No….before condemning them let’s remember that they have worked 24/7 for over a year to push their beliefs & candidates. Both sacrificed a great deal of their personal lies. Both are proud of their work….Kellyanne just had more to work with….YEA!!

  3. Path-thetic!!!!

    The criminal-bitch lost because she is morally bankrupt. You cannot tell a lie except that there is Truth – think about that! (The Truth is ALWAYS present and needs only Itself – lies depend upon Truth to exist!)

    “Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord;
    He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of
    Wrath are stored;
    He hath loosed the fateful lightning of His terrible
    Swift sword;
    His TRUTH is marching on”(!!!!)

    “And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.”

    The TRUTH ALWAYS WINS!!! No matter how long it takes!

    The c-b lost because Americans and more importantly AMERICANISTS are sick of our unconstitutional Central Government. (Federation was “destroyed” in April 1865) We are not looking for government to TAKE CARE of us. We want government to get the PHUQUE out of the WAY!!! We have cried out for the reign of TRUTH once again – and we have been heard!

    Now we cry for JUSTICE. This means she is TRIED and EXECUTED for her crimes (Benghazi was about illegally selling CIA Stinger missiles to out Terrorist enemies -HIGH TREASON!). And Justice isn’t limited to only the C-B! It goes all the way up to DAVID ROCKEFELLER and GEORGE SOROS and if man doesn’t administer it the TRUTH WILL!!! Every member of the Council on Foreign Relations, The Tri-lateral Commission and all the other structures of the BEAST! They are all DOOMED!

    Bring on the fire and brimstone – we have suffered LONG enough!

    Finally this; If Trump accomplishes no more than this – END Nationally sanction murder and sacrifice of our unborn children we are saved!
