Bill Clinton says rural folks more gullible

November 8, 2017

Former President Bill Clinton took to the podium at Georgetown University, his alma mater (Class of ‘68), to badmouth political adversary President Trump for badmouthing political adversaries.

Clinton also had come up with an explanation for why Trump did so well in rural America against Democratic nominee (perhaps in light of recent revelations I should say “nominee”) Hillary. Gosh, what else could it be but that rural voters are “trapped” in the sort of out-of-the-way place that makes them more vulnerable to false claims? The implication is that if those folks just had more mobility, they could live in a place that was more progressive and capable of helping them see the light. Ideally, that would be someplace on one of the coasts, where, you know, Hillary did well. They'd love it there!

He criticized the divisiveness of the Trump administration while failing to ask the logical question: What could be more divisive than a former President going around giving speeches that trash the current one?

    I do wish the Clinton would just go away,I am so tired of her b.s. she lost ,get over it and go away. If Bill thinks the people in rural america aren't well informed he don't realize how many iphones and computers and satalite dishes are out in the boonies, I don"t have any relatives that live in rural areas that aren"t connected.probably better then the so called informed yoyo's that rely on the liberal press ,for their lies. Most listen to Rush,and other conservative commentator's and FOX

    In thinking about who, actually, is more gullible, one could think about lemmings jumping off the cliff. The term "flash mob" certainly comes to mind also and they usually occur in the populated coastal areas. The rural people do not have the time for frivolous activity and do not need to be entertained to be satisfied. I feel a question coming on...So who really is the gullible folks ?

    If brains were gunpowder this idiot couldn't blow his nose. That's an old saying that my grandad used quite frequently and more an more, as I see and hear our illustrious leaders speak, especially when they're speaking about conservative folk, I think back to how wonderfully accurate he was. Guess it just goes to show, things haven't changed much in the last hundred or so years, in the political arena. Seems to me that he and Hiliary would have been better served to have just tucked their tails where they belonged and slithered away to oblivion, where they could just live out their lives.

    So, Bill is basically saying that the deplorable, grassroots' hayseeds put our trust and hope in a billionaire businessman from New York City, as opposed to trusting in and voting for that "sweet and sincere delicate flower" who once served as First Lady in the state of Arkansas. And the reason that we did that was because of the "entrapment" of the locale and not having accessible information regarding campaign issues. Hmmm... one would think that a lack of information would result in trusting the hometown girl rather than the city slicker... unless you were aware of the black secret past and the body count along the trail from Arkansas to Washington D.C. Don't sell us short, Bill; deplorables made a decision based on the character and honor of the candidates. And Hillary was unquestionably short in the area of trust and respectability. And lastly, a quote from Hillary; "What difference, at this point, does it make!" Remember Benghazi? We deplorables have not and will not forget--ever!
