It seems Hillary’s worst enemy — besides WikiLeaks — is none other than her loose lipped-hubby, and former president, Bill Clinton.
A speech made by Bill during a 2015 fundraiser in Ohio was just leaked where he apparently made some disparaging remarks about Barack Obama’s time in office and the negative impact his policies have had on the “white working class.”
You can bet your bottom dollar Obama’s going to blow steam out of his ears (or somewhere) over this one.
The Daily Caller is reporting, The economic stagnancy of the Obama years is to blame for plummeting life expectancy rates among white, working-class Americans, according to former president Bill Clinton, who privately told Democratic donors that lower-income whites “don’t have anything to look forward to when they get up in the morning.”
Echoing a theme of Republican nominee Donald Trump’s campaign, the former president expressed his concern that white, working-class Americans have been left behind over the last eight years.“We have incredible debates all over America that shouldn’t exist between people in different racial groups because they don’t trust law enforcement anymore,” he continued. “And in the middle of all this we learned, breathtakingly, that middle-aged, non-college-educated white Americans’ life expectancy is going down and is now lower than Hispanics, even though they make less money.”
“And the gap between African Americans and whites is closing, but unfortunately not because the death rate among African Americans is dropping but because the death rate among white Americans is rising.” Clinton continued.“Why? Because they don’t have anything to look forward to when they get up in the morning. Because their lives are sort of stuck in neutral. Because their lives are sort of stuck in neutral.”
Anyone else surprised the race hustlers haven’t already started raging and calling for Bill to meet a swift end?
Oh. That’s right. He’s a Democrat. The rules don’t apply to him or his wife. Got it.
This isn’t the first time the former president has criticized Obama and caused a spot of trouble for Hillary on the campaign trail.
He also slammed Obamacare.
via The Hill:
Former President Bill Clinton steamrolled President Obama’s signature healthcare law at a rally, calling it “the craziest thing in the world.”
Speaking Monday in Flint, Mich., Clinton blasted the core principles of ObamaCare as unworkable as he pitched a new system that would allow people to buy into Medicare or Medicaid.
“You’ve got this crazy system where all the sudden 25 million more people have healthcare and then the people are out there busting it, sometimes 60 hours a week, wind up with their premiums doubled and their coverage cut in half,” Clinton said.
“It’s the craziest thing in the world,” he said.
Of course, what he said about Obamacare is right on, which just goes to prove that even liberals know this thing is a piece of garbage.
One has to wonder how many scoldings Bill has received from the shrill and shrieking Hillary over the past year for all of these gaffes?
