'Bite Me': Pavlich Sounds Off on Michelle Obama's Criticism of Female Trump Voters
Former First Lady Michelle Obama said women who voted for Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election went against their "own voice."
"What does it mean for us as women that we look at those two candidates, as women, and many of us said, 'That guy, he's better for me, his voice is more true to me,'" Obama said at the Inbound conference in Boston on Wednesday. "Well, to me that just says you don't like your voice. You like the thing you're told to like."
On "America's Newsroom," Katie Pavlich said the issue isn't that women disliked their voices, but that they disliked Clinton.
"It turns out that there are a lot of women around the country - particularly in the Midwest, where Hillary Clinton failed to campaign - that believe in economic prosperity, jobs, rather than identity politics," Pavlich said.

Or how about when Michelle Obama voted for Barack over Hillary? Did she "vote against her own voice" by not voting for a woman? https://t.co/Fph9BIef5B

She said if Obama wants to continue insulting women who didn't vote for Clinton, she can certainly do so, but it doesn't seem like a very wise choice with Democrats in disarray and in need of all the votes they can get.
Jessica Tarlov agreed that Obama's remark was not helpful for the Democratic Party, and she expects that soundbite to appear in many political ads in 2018 and 2020.
