Al Sharpton is back and as obnoxious as ever. Only this time he is insulting Hillary Clinton. He started by describing Trump supporters as a bunch of “Archie Bunkers” who would never be open to voting for a Democrat. Then he scolded Hillary for trying to pander to those people instead of pandering more to black people.
“You lost Michigan, by what, 15,000, 20,000 votes? You could’ve got that if you mobilized two housing projects or three churches. Never touched them. So in many ways I think that the whole question of, ‘Oh we gotta reach out to the Appalachian and the blue collar workers and stop the identity politics’ — well, that’s one strategy,” said Sharpton.
“But what I’m saying is that you never worked your own base. You took your base for granted, so it’s not that you need to go another way, you didn’t identify with those in identity politics, that’s why you had the lowest turnout you had around blacks in a long time,” said Sharpton.
“And I think that’s where they did the wrong math in the Clinton campaign. They assumed that we’ll go get all of this because everybody will stay here: young voters, black voters, Latino voters, like Obama, and it didn’t happen,” said Sharpton.
