Hillary Clinton’s director of communications outreach, Jess McIntosh, told MSNBC’s Chris Hayes Monday white women’s “internalized misogyny” is to blame for their loss.
From The American Mirror:
When she was asked by Chris Hayes why Hillary didn’t do better with white women than Barack Obama did in 2012, McIntosh responded, “Internalized misogyny is a real thing and this is a thing we have to be talking about as we go through and see.”
McIntosh then echoed what she claimed was Obama’s assessment.
“We as a society react poorly to women seeking positions of power. We are uncomfortable about that and we seek to justify that uncomfortable feeling because it can’t possibly be because we don’t want to see a woman in that position of power,” McIntosh said.

“As we go through these numbers, as we figure out exactly what happened with turnout, it seems to be white college-educated women,” she continued.
“We have work to do talking to those women about what happened this year and why we would vote against our self-interest,” McIntosh said.
Don’t you white women realize it’s in your self-interest to be at war with white men and vote based off who will give you free birth control?
It’s rather remarkable the lying media thinks attacking white women and blaming them for Hillary’s loss is actually going to advance their agenda.

White women voted for Trump in 2016 because they still believe white men are their saviors https://t.co/ZfFIJDCnBN

Rather than shame white women into voting Democrat, this is just going to drive them further right into our protective arms.
