Hillary Clinton may think conservatives are a “basket of deplorables,” but one of the major revelations from the WIkiLeaks Podesta emails are Hillary’s feelings towards her fellow Democrats. Spoiler: Hillary hates them too!
The Podesta emails did reveal some of Hillary’s secret speeches, but many of the more offensive comments (for Democrats) come from her “inner circle.” That doesn’t really matter to liberals, as they feel the comments reflect Hillary’s personal feelings.
It is still unknown whether the emails will alienate Democratic voters enough to keep them from voting for Hillary. We do know that liberals are furious, however, and they don’t trust Hillary any more than we do.
Kenneth Vogel of Politico breaks it down:
Some of the left’s most influential voices and groups are taking offense at the way they and their causes were discussed behind their backs by Clinton and some of her closest advisers in the emails, which swipe liberal heroes and causes as “puritanical,” “pompous”, “naive”, “radical” and “dumb,” calling some “freaks,” who need to “get a life.”
“We were already kind of suspicious of where Hillary’s instincts were, but now we see that she is who we thought she was,” said one influential liberal Democratic operative. “The honeymoon is going to be tight and small and maybe nonexistent,” the operative said.
The emails, which also show Clinton praising Wall Street in a manner that’s discordant with her tough campaign rhetoric, have made many progressives less inclined to give Clinton the benefit of the doubt on nominees with more centrist backgrounds or ties to Wall Street, said the operative.
Podesta, the dean of Democratic presidential staffers, helped Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama launch their administrations, and now serves as chairman of Hillary Clinton’s campaign and president of her transition team.
In the emails, he comes off as a pragmatist, pouring cold water on the popular liberal proposal for a carbon tax, which Sanders embraced, by saying that the polling on the idea “sucks.” But he also swipes Sanders as a “doofus” for saying that the 2015 Paris climate accord, which Clinton supported, “goes nowhere near far enough.”
It seems liberals are starting to realize what conservatives have been saying all along: Hillary hates everyone. She’s only in this for herself, not the country.
