Hand Injury Hampers Hillary Clinton's Jodhpur Tour

Meghan McCain has hit back at Hillary Clinton's comments blaming her election loss on white women who were afraid to defy their Trump-supporting husbands and sons by voting for her.

Clinton also suggested at the India Today Enclave that anyone who voted for Trump was less productive in less productive parts of the country and that they were attracted by the president's "backwards" message.

Divisiveness from Clinton is nothing new (remember, this is the same woman who once said that half of Trump supporters were "deplorables").

Clinton found herself in hot-water Tuesday after speaking at an worldwide conference in India; slamming "white women" for costing her the 2016 election to Donald Trump.

Backward red states with lousy economies, on the other hand, went for Trump, according to her latest analysis, The Hill reported.

So, let's get to what she actually said.

"If you look at the map of the United States, there is all that red in the middle, places where Trump won", the former first lady said at the India Today Conclave in Mumbai.

House Republicans are fretting over the results of Pennsylvania's special election, anxious that the tight race in the heart of Trump country might be a harbinger of a Democratic wave in the midterms.

Several studies of the 2016 election have found that Trump overperformed Clinton in economically struggling parts of the nation, a likely motivator for voters seeking change in the party control of the White House.

Not only that, the group cited Smith's prior support for Clinton, including a quote in which he described her as being "uniquely qualified to serve" as president. "We need leaders like her to look forward to 2020 and how to unify the party, not continue to re-litigate the past". "It's going to be bad you can't vote for that".

'She puts herself in a position where [Democrats] from states that Trump won will have to distance themselves from her even more, ' one former senior Clinton aide told the newspaper. For months, some Democrats have been arguing that Clinton's sentiments have been counterproductive to the party's rebuilding efforts. "That's a lot of states".

A former campaign manager for Clinton, Patti Solis Doyle, also criticized her old boss's words.

Francis shrugged that off by saying Democrats tried it during the election and it didn't work.
