The recording of Hillary about Sanders' supporters is GOOD. What's wrong with it?

I know I know. They are going to try to say she was calling them "basement dwellers." No, she was expressing that many were living at home and having a hard time in the economy and so a campaign like Bernie's would be appealing. WHAT IS WRONG WITH THAT??

She gets it! ANOTHER BIG TRUMP FAIL!

1. It's just something for the right and the bitter BoB'ers to cling on to.

The media is going to make a huge deal over it though.

2. What huge deal? What is there to make a deal over?

7. She wasn't really insulting Bernie supporters though.

 

Trump surrogates will try to spin it negatively (of course) but that's it.

11. Exactly.

There have been so many instance of Clinton Derangement Syndrome throughout this election. Yes, she makes gaffes from time to time like all politician. However, if there is something that can be nitpicked in a statement ("half", it's going to nitpicked by the media, the right, and sadly, the left as well.

3. The key is the news personality's lead in

What the intro includes can make the viewer believe something that's not there. I'm sure the MSM is doing their best.

4. I didn't like what I read, upon first reading.

The tone struck me as somehow condescending and the content as not necessarily accurate. Upon rereading, I think it's fine.

15. How on earth is it condescending. She tries to understand where they're coming from.


I'm actually very discouraged by your first reaction because you know that's the kind of reaction
a lot of people with inherent distrust for Clinton (because of manufactured BS like this for 30 years) will think.

How is it not accurate, probably know 30 cases like that personally!

If someone here can have this reaction,it's going to be another 7 days of shit over another nothing, while Trump runs scot free murdering reality with crap.

meh!

17. I don't find it condescending now.

It occurred to me that way initially. Then I read again and read more and it didn't occur to me that way. I don't expect that much at all will come of this.

6. You know, I was afraid to say something like that because I thought I missed something.

 

To me, it made Hillary sound human and understanding about millennials.

I personally know six millennials who live with their parents. Only one lives the basement which is pretty damn nice because the parents have a very nice McMansion. The others just simply live at home with the parents because it's cheaper and they are struggling to succeed in school or at work and trying to save some money.

Thanks for posting this.

9. Actually it puts HRC in a positive light but ya know the corporate media

will cherry pick it cause they don't want t-rump to go down yet. No wonder CNN is at the bottom of the ratings.

Ms. Joy's ratings sky rocket because she confronts the lies.

12. I can't see what's wrong with it myself.

I know people in that situation, and they're not going to be angry to have their personal plight mentioned in this light.

13. It seems like...

 

when President Obama said people cling to guns and religion. Spiners are going to spin. How can there be an intelligent conversation when nuance is so willfully misunderstood.
