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?

    Quite the contrary. The Clintons have used their legal jargon words wisely over the years to fool us all. We see right through them. The Clintons carry too much baggage and the public knows it.

    I believe the opposite is true. Rural folks are more in touch with the truth than city slickers and less impressed with the B.S. that these liberals spew. I lived in Ar. When the Clintons were in Little Rock. Most voters were fooled by them but, thankfully not me. I'm sorry that I moved to Va. before you changed the state from Democratic to Republican. Most of my anti-Hillary emails during the 2016 came from Arkansans . I sure wish you'd move to Virginia and get involved in Politics here. Rural and Southern Virginia usually go Republican but, Northern Va. is an embarrassment.

    It is about time for things to turn around and investigations start on the Clintons, their Fund, and the Obama's administration, etc.

    Rural, and country folk are a lot smarter than you think we can spot crooked and wicked when we see it city folk live with it and are use to it so with them it goes un-noticed.
