Clinton: Being a Capitalist Probably Hurt Me in 2016 Because So Many Democrats Are Socialists
BY: David Rutz May 2, 2018 5:14 pm
Hillary Clinton said Wednesday that being a capitalist probably hurt her cause in 2016 because so many Democrats in the party today are socialists.
Her interviewer at the Shared Values Leadership Summit quipped Clinton might have been the first presidential candidate since World War II who had to stand up and announce she was a capitalist.
"Did it hurt you?" he asked.
"Probably," Clinton said. "It's hard to know, but if you're in the Iowa caucuses and 41 percent of Democrats are socialists, or self-described socialists, and I'm asked, Are you a capitalist?' And I say, Yes, but with appropriate regulation and appropriate accountability,' you know, that probably gets lost in the Oh my gosh, she's a capitalist.'"
Clinton fought off a surprisingly sturdy challenge from Democratic Socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) for the 2016 Democratic nomination. Sanders won primaries and caucuses in 22 states, and he came close to pulling off an upset in Iowa, losing by less than half a point to Clinton.
She has laid blame on numerous factors for her eventual general election defeat at the hands of President Donald Trump, Sanders and his diehard supporters among them. Sanders ripped Clinton as beholden to Wall Street interests during the primary, and she wrote his attacks did "lasting damage" to her.

Thats the funniest joke Ive seen today - thanks for posting it.
Reason #842 of why she lost, but shouldn’t have.
She’s a crony capitalist that embraces socialism.
If she’s planning on running again does she think all those socialists are all of a sudden going to like her? She’s just alienated more than half of her party.
I suppose, loosely speaking, you could also categorize Al Capone as a capitalist.
Another day, another excuse.
Bernie cleaned her clock. She had to cheat to beat him. Ended up paying him 600 big. The only capitalist thing about old Jezebel was selling US secrets, and property. Who supplied her blackberries?
Actually, most of my lib friends agree with Sanders, et al. Of course, they are all filthy rich, mostly from multi generational family money. Many have no kids or grandkids.
Easy to be a socialist if you live off a trust fund, and have no real connection to the future.
Hitlery is one evil, vile creature.
Sure, Hillary. We’ll all just collectively forget the numerous times you called yourself a Progressive.
Worst loser in the history of humanity. Guinness Record holder!
Being a corrupt AF moneywhore
Yep, because you haven't yet run out of other people's money...
PS: I believe people should be allowed to inherit wealth from their parents, and no death tax, but if you want to be a socialist/communist, you should give it to the state.
What makes your trust funded lib friends think their trust funds would be safe under socialism? Leftists love wealth taxes.
This woman really needs some help.
So now there’s yet another new excuse for losing?
Another damned lie . . . about 80% of Rats are full-blown commies . . . including Hitlery.
She sold the only capital available to her. We all know she has nothing else of value...
Is this a joke? Nevermind, I believe it considering who it is. She lost becauae she sat on her fat ass her entire campaign thinking she would easiky win. Also she has the personality of a wart. But will she take personal responsibility for losing? Of course not! Instead she continues to act like a child and blames everyone and everything.
It hurt her?
