But life does skip right along, doesn’t it? A triumphant Trump hasn’t slackened his pace as he shows one staff member, appointee or cabinet member out another the door. No good seems to come to those who serve in this administration. Cue Peter, Paul and Mary: Where have all the soldiers gone? Long time passing. Where have all the soldiers gone, long time ago? Gone to graveyards, everyone; When will they ever learn? When will they e-ver learn?
The same song could be sung about Clinton, if only she could hear the music. But then, she was always a little tone deaf.
At least Al Gore, who suffered a similar fate, winning the popular vote in 2000 but losing the Electoral College, only went on to grow a beard and make documentaries about the end of Earth. Clinton seems committed to a personal Groundhog Day in which she adds not new talents and feats of heroism but fresh targets to blame for her destiny denied.
She has variously blamed former FBI Director James Comey, Russia, sexists, “deplorables” and, in a speech in Mumbai, racism. In one of her worst-yet panders — quite a distinction if you remember Hillary’s 2007 speech in Selma — she apparently noticed the darker pigmentation of her Indian audience and adapted.
She started out by reiterating her disdain for those who failed to recognize her virtues, saying that she won in places “that are optimistic, diverse, dynamic, moving forward,” compared with Trump voters who are always looking “backwards.” Then, mockingly, talking to “those people” who voted for him, she continued, “You know you didn’t like black people getting rights, you don’t like women, you know, getting jobs, you don’t want to, you know, see Indian-Americans succeeding more than you are.”
A lack of awareness
Yikes. So, the people who voted for Trump resent Indian-Americans’ success? Funny, because surely her audience was aware that President Trump selected Indian-American Nikki Haley as ambassador to the United Nations.
Such a lack of awareness, combined with Clinton’s disdain for millions of Americans whom she would have served as president, confirms that she shouldn’t have won after all. By her insinuations, she has demonstrated a loathsome prejudice against the poorly educated and unemployed as well as rural whites, social conservatives and women who stay home with their children — to name a few.
What happened, you ask?
