While speaking to an audience in Mumbai, India, Hillary Clinton insulted millions of Americans who live in the “heartland” of the nation, calling those who voted for Donald Trump racist, sexist and “backwards.”
Here’s what she said:
If you look at the map of the United States, there’s all that red in the middle where [President Donald] Trump won. I win the coasts, I win you know Illinois, Minnesota, places like that.
But what the map doesn’t show you is that I won the places that represent two-thirds of America’s gross domestic product. So I won the places that are optimistic, diverse, dynamic, moving forward, and his whole campaign, ‘Make America Great Again,’ was looking backwards.
You know, you didn’t like black people getting rights. You didn’t like women y’know, getting jobs, you don’t want, y’know, see that Indian American succeeding more than you are, whatever your problem is, I’m gonna solve it.
So it was a symptom but it was also a cause because having someone run for president who voices those ideas, who rejects so much of the American story and our values, was also the underlying cause as well.

“This is tragically sad,” said Glenn on today’s show. “Anybody who would say this, left or right, to a massive global audience, to the biggest free market outside of the United States, is just tragically sad. That’s not who we are.”
