Campaigner: White Women Voted Against Hillary BECAUSE She's A Woman

Hillary Clinton's team keeps trying to come up with new reasons to explain why their candidate lost to Trump, and many people would find their newest reason just plain insulting.

Jess McIntosh, Hillary's former campaign communications director, explained it during a MSNBC appearance, according to the Daily Wire.

What do you think of this?

TRANSCRIPT:

MSNBC'S CHRIS HAYES: "My understanding from my conversations with the Clinton folks is that there's a certain demographic — everyone comes up with their demographic path to victory...

JESS MCINTOSH: "Sure."

HAYES: "...and in some ways the demographic bet was that there's going to be some demographics in which she underperforms..."

MCINTOSH: "Uh-huh."

HAYES: "...that will be made up for ones that she overperforms in."

MCINTOSH: "Yup."

HAYES: "And one of those was women, particularly, Republican women. white women. We should be clear women of color overwhelmingly voted for her and have overwhelmingly voted for every Democratic presidential candidate."

MCINTOSH: "Yes."

HAYES: "But she, among white women, didn't do any different then, essentially, Obama in 2012. A point better. How do you make sense of that?"

MCINTOSH: "Internalized misogyny is a real thing. And this is a thing we have to be talking about as we go through and see—"

HAYES: "What does that mean, though?"

MCINTOSH: "The president said it the best during this whole campaign. We as a society react poorly to women seeking positions of power. We are uncomfortable with it, and then we seek to justify that uncomfortable feeling because it can't possibly because we don't want to see a woman in that position of power. We need to, as we go through these numbers, as we figure out exactly what happened with turnout, it seems to be white college-educated women. My guess is, that breaks down married/unmarried. I guess it breaks down older/younger. But we have work to do talking to those women about what happened this year. And why, why we would vote against our self-interest."
