Democrat front-runner Hillary Clinton went full Joe Biden with a gaffe-ridden statement on Friday when she was asked about billionaire businessman Donald Trump’s recent comments calling her out for playing the “woman card” and being “crooked.”
“I have a lot of experience dealing with men who sometimes get off the reservation in the way they behave and how they speak,” Clinton said, according to The Hill.
Woah — “off the reservation”? Well, I’m really not sure that’s a great thing to have on your résumé, nor do I believe her Native American supporters would appreciate the fact that she used the term.
Speaking of Native Americans, here’s what Andrew Bentley said, a blogger for National Relief Charities who works with Natives in the Plains and Southwest:
“The issue with ‘off the reservation’ and similar phrases is that these things are said without any thought. They become a part of the common vernacular. Freely they move from mind to mind, mouth to mouth.
“Maybe the meaning of these sorts of phrases never should have been the issue,” he added. “Maybe living lives without thinking about what we say and do is of greater concern.”
Brutal. However, I do think liberal politicians, and corrupt ones too for that matter, utilize no discernment in determining if their policy is helpful or hurtful. Most people can forgive a slip of tongue, but working to implement detrimental practices shows one’s true colors.
“I’m not going to deal with their temper tantrums or their bullying or their efforts to try to provoke me. He can say whatever he wants to me. I could really care less,” Clinton concluded.
And her comment, of course, leaves one to wonder just what “experience” with men getting “off the reservation” Clinton was referring to. I’m sure, had Donald Trump said something similar about Clinton, her campaign would have denounced it as a personal attack on her husband’s multiple sexual infidelities.
But when Clinton says it — apparently in reference to her own husband — there’s nary a peep from the left, including the mainstream media.
