Fox News host Eric Bolling slammed Democrats during a monologue on Fox News' "Cashin' In" Saturday, urging them to stop blaming their continued election losses on things like "racism" and "sexism."
Bolling was responding to a spat Hillary Clinton communications director Jennifer Palmieri had earlier this week with Kellyanne Conway, senior adviser to President-elect Donald Trump, at a Harvard forum.
During the forum, Palmieri contended that Trump defeated Clinton because his campaign provided a platform for white supremacists, while Conway argued that Democrats continue to ignore the real reason why they lost: because their candidate was extremely flawed.
"No, it wasn't racism, not white supremacy. No, it wasn't sexism. What is was, however, it was the fact that Hillary had no message," Bolling said. "She never touched the hearts of voters."
According to Bolling, Clinton's only message throughout the entire presidential campaign was that "it's my turn" and "he's terrible."
He added that Clinton had many clear advantages over Trump including money, polls, the media and the electoral map, but Trump was able to still come away with a decisive victory, including winning many of the counties and states that President Barack Obama won in 2008 and 2012.
But there was one message of Clinton's that did resonate with voters, Bolling contended: when she called half of Trump's supporters a "basket of deplorables."
"That comment hit home, but to the wrong group. It hit home to every person who has felt ignored, or who has felt belittled for their beliefs, or felt that political elites had disdain for the average American," Bolling said. "It was that comment that turned the election toward Trump."
"We’re American,” he concluded. “Not deplorable, just American. And finally that means something again."
