If this is a dog whistle, then why can only Slick Willy hear it? Hey Bill, you lie just as egregiously as your vile, corrupt, lying, carpet munching spouse. His statement is just one more example of how ignorant and clueless the Clintons really are. It also bespeaks the want to appeal to those equally ignorant Americans who actually think Hillary is a viable candidate.
Former President Bill Clinton on Wednesday said Donald Trump’s campaign slogan, “Make America Great Again,” is a racist dog whistle.
“I’m actually old enough to remember the good old days, and they weren’t all that good in many ways,” Clinton said at a rally in Orlando. “That message where ‘I’ll give you America great again’ is if you’re a white Southerner, you know exactly what it means, don’t you?”
“What it means is ‘I’ll give you an economy you had 50 years ago, and I’ll move you back up on the social totem pole and other people down,’” he said. “What Hillary wants to do is take the totem poll down, and let us all go forward together.”
Clinton, who is a white Southerner himself, made the comments after Hillary Clinton gave a speech last month accusing Trump of bringing racism and fringe conspiracy theories into the mainstream with his 2016 campaign.
