Seriously – fuck off!
President Bill Clinton dismissed presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump’s policies as “divisive” and ineffective at a Wednesday campaign event for his wife, Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton.
Speaking at Union County College, Bill Clinton also said “white, non-college-educated Americans” who are widely seen as a core part of Trump’s base “need to be brought along to the future.”
Clinton began making his case by identifying “a reason why this has been such a crazy political year.”
Clinton suggested that “white, non-college educated Americans” are the ones who want to “reclaim” the past. That group is widely seen as a crucial part of Trump’s base of support.
“We all need to recognize that white, non-college-educated Americans have seen great drops in their income, have seen great increases in their unemployment rate, have seen drops in their life expectancy, and they need to be brought along to the future. But they can’t live under the illusion that you can reclaim a past which is just that — past. This country is always about the future,” Clinton said.
Will we be bringing black folks along to the future too? Or is it just us crackers that have to let go of the past? The Democrat party acts like we are permanently stuck in 1963.
I supported Bill Clinton. I voted for Bill Clinton. I defended Bill Clinton.
Bill Clinton can kiss my ass.
