The left-leaning Washington Post came to Hillary Clinton’s defense Wednesday; backing-up the failed presidential nominee’s comments that ‘white women’ were pressured into voting for Donald Trump by their husbands and sons.
In a bizarre article titled, “Like it or not, studies suggest that Clinton may not be wrong on white women voting like their husbands,” the Post claims the former Secretary of State’s fiery rhetoric was scientifically accurate.
“Clinton has made comments like these before and has been criticized for them because they appear to place the blame for her loss on white women’s inability to think independently about their vote. But there are studies that show that how white women vote, especially those who are married, is highly influenced by the politics of their husbands,” writes the liberal newspaper.
“White women are much more likely to be married than women of other demographic groups. And married women are more likely to support traditional values, both culturally and economically,” adds the author.
Clinton found herself in hot-water Tuesday after speaking at an international conference in India; slamming ‘white women’ for costing her the 2016 election to Donald Trump.
“[Democrats] do not do well with white men, and we don’t do well with married, white women. And part of that is an identification with the Republican Party, and a sort of ongoing pressure to vote the way that your husband, your boss, your son, whoever, believes you should,” she said.
