LEAKED: Hillary Calls Bernie Supporters "Basement Dwellers," Socialists Attack!
Hillary Clinton might need Secret Service to pat everyone down for recording devices. Now she's on audio mocking Bernie supporters as basement dwellers, and more...
"Some are new to politics completely. They're children of the Great Recession. And they are living in their parents' basement. They feel they got their education and the jobs that are available to them are not at all what they envisioned for themselves. And they don't see much of a future."
First thing, kudos to the Free Beacon who got the original scoop.
Now we've been known to call Bernie supporters some names as well. Difference is no one on this website is running for president. Also, those "Basement dwellers" she's referring to? Isn't she trying to earn their vote? I rather thought leftist candidates stuck with other leftist candidates. Yet here's Hillary, mocking her former rival's supporters. Probably not a great idea. Because this scoop? Well plenty are feeling burned. See what I did there?
Feeling the Bern/Burn...

The typical Clinton loyalists will attempt to "gaslight" on this hacked audio, but most Sanders supporters get the message loud and clear.— Michael Tracey (@Michael Tracey) 1475291584.0
Let's be charitable to Hillary Clinton (see YouTuber Mercilessly Mocks Hillary’s Insincerity. And It’s Perfect. and Juanita Broaddrick SLAMS Chelsea Clinton for Defending Bill and Hillary)...most Bernie supporters are in fact living in their parents' basement. If their parents have basements. "Basements" could also mean spare room. Or "room which was theirs since childhood."
Here's the rub, for Clinton at least...the populism that drives Trump supporters and Bernie supporters has a lot more in common than people think. Bernie voters have already been trending third party as it is. It'll be interesting to see what this new dis by Hillary does.
I'm mainly concerned about poor Jean-Guy Tremblay. Hearing this must be triggering to him...
