There have been plenty of damning facts about Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and her campaign in the batch of emails released by WikiLeaks these past few weeks. However, one of the most telling entries, which was just released, detailed how she hates the phrase “everyday Americans.”
The email, released by WikiLeaks on Tuesday, took place between Clinton director of communications Jen Palmieri and campaign manager John Podesta in April of 2015. They were discussing ideas for Clinton’s speeches.
“I think this looks good, but thought we were going to take one of the small biz policy ideas — like access to credit — highlight that in her remarks?” Palmieri wrote about a speech that had been mailed out for preview by another Clinton staffer.
She then responded that they should insert the phrase “everyday Americans” in some of her speeches, even though their candidate didn’t think all too highly of it.
“I know she has begun to hate everyday Americans, but I think we should use it once the first time she says I’m running for president because you and everyday Americans need a champion,” Palmieri wrote. “I think if she doesn’t say it once, people will notice and say we false started in Iowa.”
So, what does Hillary Clinton prefer? “You godforsaken plebeians?”
It’s no secret that Hillary Clinton has plenty of contempt for anyone lower on the social ladder than her (which, in her view, is more or less everyone), and that this bleeds over to her way of viewing the world. That being said, I don’t think we expected to see it put in this sharp of relief by the WikiLeaks emails.
This is the kind of contempt that Hillary has for everyday Americans. While I understand it’s only stated by Ms. Palmieri that Hillary hates the phrase, the question is why she hates it. It isn’t because of the phonetic construction. It isn’t because of her avoidance of cliche — after all, this is someone who references “the war on women” so often you would think it was an actual armed conflict.
The only answer that one can come up with is the obvious one — that she’s not too keen on the people it represents. What an utter phony.
