Hillary Clinton blamed white people the other day for the shootings in Dallas that left 11 officers injured and 5 dead. Despite the perpetrator being black, Mrs. Clinton left the blame on white people, who, she says, need to change their ways. Those comments have been receiving a backlash, and a potential VP for Donald Trump had harsh words for Mrs. Clinton specifically.
According to Breitbart:
Sunday, on ABC’s “This Week With George Stephanopoulos,” while commenting on the recent police shootings in Louisiana and Minnesota and a sniper targeting and killing five Dallas police officers and wounding seven, former director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, advisor to presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump, and a potential VP for Trump retired Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn said presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton was “totally irresponsible, when she talked about white people being to blame.”
Flynn said, “I think her speech, a couple of nights ago, was totally irresponsible, when she talked about white people being to blame. I mean, that is so irresponsible. What we have to look at is, speech that’s positive, that’s forward-looking, and demonstrates an intellectual courage, that doesn’t try to attack an ideology one way or the other. I mean, how are we going to fix this? We have to — we cannot keep having these types of events in our country, whether it’s an Islamic terrorist attack, or whether it’s an attack on our law enforcement professionals in this country.”
It’s interesting how the tide is turning. Previously, Democrats were untouchable anytime they spoke about race or poverty. But, this election is proving that nothing can be taken for granted, and comments Mrs. Clinton thought would go over well with her base, are not landing as expected, perhaps costing her votes.
Meanwhile, the potential Trump VP demonstrated a savvy hand dealing with the press and interviews after the fact.
