Why is she always snippy? If they really were Bernie supporters why couldn't she just say [View all]

We welcome you, please sit down & join us and listen to what my plans are if I win the Presidency?

But no - she had to scold them.
Told them to leave.
She had to say I have more votes, so nannynanny poopoo
I I I I I have experience.
You never listen.

Was this really any different than how she handled the BLM activist that paid to go to her fundraiser?
Or the woman that asked her a question at a coffee shop?

Nope it wasn't. Every time Hillary is confronted with an opposing viewpoint, instead of welcoming them she turns on the snark.

One of the things I loved about Candidate Obama in 2008 is when he was confronted with a protester or an opposing viewpoint, he always listened and let them talk. He would then answer their concerns....even when that question came from Joe Plumber.

I don't know if they were Bernie supporters (it's just hearsay) or if they were Trump supporters. It doesn't matter. Being condescending to people does not earn you votes.

Sexist? Asking why she didn't invite them to stay rather than scolding them is sexist? What does jillan Mar 2016 #47
I should use a sarcasm tag sometimes =) Prism Mar 2016 #49
that poster likes to scold Hillary Clinton for smiling too much. geek tragedy Mar 2016 #51
