The Election secret nobody is talking about

Why Did College-Educated White Women Vote for Trump?

For this cohort, the concern isn’t necessarily their own finances. “My life wouldn’t change either way,” Frable said about the material difference between a Clinton and Trump presidency. “I don’t think my taxes will be better or worse with one or the other.” But she felt confident that her children will find better jobs after college with Trump in office, and she talked with longing about his promise to restore jobs, like one she remembers a friend of her father’s had, working in an auto factory in Detroit. “If we could have export agreements with, say, France or Germany, or let’s face it, Russia, they would take our quality goods and we could be great again,” Frable said.

All of this — along with other items on the Trump “wish list,” as Frable put it, like defeating ISIS and cracking down on border security — matters far more to her than anything Trump said about women or was accused of doing to them. Anyway, given Bill Clinton’s history, how can Hillary complain? “I have disrespect for Hillary for not doing more for herself, not standing up for herself with him,” Frable said. “That’s more damaging than goofball words Trump came up with.”

They want change and demand performance. Either Trump delivers or he gets fired in 2020.

Fair enough.

All that education and she thinks her taxes would be the same whether Rodham or Trump were elected?

You know why university educated women didn't vote for cackle-pants? Because they saw through her veil of evil just like everyone else did. They gave her no fucks.

Boy I'd love to see video of Drunk Hillary attacking the Mook and Podesta.

And what did they see behind the veil of evil? Something "tawdry" was the thought that immediately followed, only I wasn't sure if the word fit. So I went to Word Etymology, where I found a fit, along with reference to a pain in the neck, and the discovery of "levity" mentioned in the history there.

tawdry (adj.)
"no longer fresh or elegant but worn as if it were so; in cheap and ostentatious imitation of what is rich or costly," 1670s, adjective use of noun tawdry "silk necktie for women" (1610s), shortened from tawdry lace (1540s), an alteration (with adhesion of the -t- from Saint) of St. Audrey's lace, a necktie or ribbon sold at the annual fair at Ely on Oct. 17 commemorating St. Audrey (queen of Northumbria, died 679). Her association with lace necklaces is that she supposedly died of a throat tumor, which, according to Bede, she considered God's punishment for her youthful stylishness:

"I know of a surety that I deservedly bear the weight of my trouble on my neck, for I remember that, when I was a young maiden, I bore on it the needless weight of necklaces; and therefore I believe the Divine goodness would have me endure the pain in my neck, that so I may be absolved from the guilt of my needless levity, having now, instead of gold and pearls, the fiery heat of a tumour rising on my neck." [A.M. Sellar translation, 1907]


The fiery heat of her own malignant history and current health issues now hangs around Hillary's neck. When a woman does break the glass ceiling to become President, I want it to be someone whose character and integrity matters more than her gender.

Reports are Hillary was too drunk to give a speech election night and spewed bile @ Mook and Podesta before sending Podesta out to give one last lie to the loyal troops.

The collegiates that supported the Beast were the Diversity Hires incapable of making better than 35 grand.

And the failure of educated women in general to support her may mean the feminist cant has run its course, much like that of race. They looked at her and saw no more than a pussy. At the risk of being called out for it, I do believe I said several times the women's vote wasn't her just because.

Ironic if so, since it took the Lefties' firsts (Pissy and the Beast) to finally put an end to all the virtue-shaming.

nd, that was the rumor election night about her being plastered.

She, perhaps, saw her venom filtered by McConnell and Ryan. Of course, this is a woman whose story is set down by the Gray Lady, so she might be one of those You-Want-Fries-With-That degrees.

AJ Lynch said...

I bet there are gonna be some good books written about the incompetent Obama admin and about Hillary's corrupt, unaccomplished political and govt career. It couldn't happen to two nicer assholes.

Nick, I thought ed tipped us off on Hillary's massive election night meltdown.

I have one word in response: Temperament.

ndspinelli said...

ed and Evi, When I saw Podesta come out on election night I said to my bride the bitch is probably hammered to speak. I bet Trump, very familiar w/ alcoholics, could tell us by their phone conversation. But, it's prudent for Trump to just keep that in his back pocket.

ndspinelli said...

Evi, I'll see your temperament and raise you a temperance.

ndspinelli said...

AJ, Whomever writes a tell all book about this election and/or the Obama presidency better buy some protection.

Sixty Grit said...

Oh the stories that could be told - what happened the day she was face planted in the back of the Scooby van? What caused that cough and how was it treated? Does she really have cankles of clay? When she met the devil down at the crossroad, what did he look like? I could go on, but you get the drift.

Methadras said...

Don't worry. It's all going to come out. If wikileaks doesn't do it, some insider is going to spill for sure. Vindication will once again be at hand. Her due is coming. If you thought that losing the election a second time was somehow punishment for who she truly is, you and she haven't seen shit yet.

I personally cannot wait and I mean, CANNOT. MOTHERFUCKING. WAIT. for the announcement that her misbegotten soul is descending into the 9th level of hell, with Lucifer himself rending it asunder with his jizz for all eternity. It will be a good day for the country. Fuck her and her whole family. Fuck them into hell.

Few can rant like Methadras.
