'You Don't Expect This From a Feminist Icon': Tarlov Says Hillary's Remarks on Women Won't Help Dems
Democratic strategist Jessica Tarlov said Thursday she doesn't understand the reasoning behind Hillary Clinton's comments about female Trump voters.
Tarlov told Bill Hemmer on "America's Newsroom" that Clinton's remark that Democrats "do not do well with white men and we don't do well with married white women" was unexpected. Clinton said married women who voted for Trump may have been pressured to do so by their husbands.
"It's just the kind of comment that you don't expect from a feminist icon," Tarlov said, arguing the remarks will not help Senate Democrats running for re-election this year in red states.
"No one told my mom who she was voting for," Hemmer remarked. "I got three sisters. No one is telling my sisters who to vote for. Ever. Man, woman, martian...does not happen."
More Democrats have recently begun distancing themselves after the former secretary of state's remarks, in which she also cast Trump supporters as looking "backward."
