In Mumbai, India, Hillary Clinton trashed voters in America’s Heartland and dismissed their lack of support for her candidacy as “backwards” and racist. At the Bollywood event, the failed 2016 Democratic nominee blamed her loss on Americans who “didn’t like black people getting rights” and even managed to pander to her Indian crowd by citing racism against Indians.
“If you look at the map of the United States, there’s all that red in the middle where Trump won. I win the coasts, I win – you know – Illinois, Minnesota, places like that,” Mrs. Clinton said. “But what the map doesn’t show you is that I won the places that represent two thirds of America’s gross domestic product. So I won the places that are optimistic, diverse, dynamic, moving forward.”
Her remarks were posted online by the GOP Rapid Response Team’s War Room YouTube channel. They ripped her for “dismissing America’s Heartland to a foreign audience.”
“And his whole campaign, Make America Great Again, was looking backwards. 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. Whatever your problem is, I’m gonna solve it.”
While many Democrats up for reelection in states President Trump won in 2016 would like Americans to believe this is just the view of a bitter loser, it’s not. As Josh Kraushaar of National Journal tweeted, this “worldview” is now “mainstream” in the Democratic Party.
Clearly a poor candidate, but that worldview she's articulating is pretty much mainstream within the party. https://t.co/8EN2ePoa0e

India Today editor Aroon Purie reportedly introduced the failed candidate as the “woman who should have been the president of the United States of America” and at one point asked if America “deserved” Mr. Trump as the 45th President of the United States.
“Well, I would have to say no, we did not deserve that,” Mrs. Clinton replied.
“Do they have something on him?” Mr. Purie, a supposed journalist asked.
“Well, we’ll find out, we’ll find out,” she answered. “Follow the money.”
Unfortunately for Mrs. Clinton, who has sought to blame everyone from Russia to Macedonia for her decisive and humiliating defeat, the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) concluded there is “no evidence of collusion” between Russia and the Trump campaign.
The ending of the probe comes a few weeks after Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein announced no “American was a knowing participant” in any plot by the Russians to influence the 2016 election.
However, the HPSCI did uncover how Obama Administration officials at the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and Justice Department (DOJ) used false information to obtain a FISA warrant to spy on Team Trump. Further, the committee revealed the now-discredited dossier was funded by the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and Mrs. Clinton’s campaign.
The nonprofit Campaign Legal Center (CLC) has filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) alleging both the Clinton campaign and the DNC violated campaign finance law by failing to accurately disclose payments for the dossier.
