Basement dwellers is what Hillary Clinton calls millennials and Bernie Sanders supporters behind closed doors, when she’s not pandering for their votes in public.
While Hillary has publicly proposed free college to woo millennial voters and Bernie Sanders supporters, her contempt for them was revealed in a leaked audio recording where she called them ignorant, entitled basement dwellers who sponge off their parents.
“Some are new to politics completely,” said Clinton (listen to audio at :50). “And they are living in their parents’ basement.”
Hillary continued: “So if you’re feeling like you’re consigned to being a barista, or some other job that doesn’t pay a lot, and doesn’t have some other ladder of opportunity attached to it, then the idea that maybe you could be part of a political revolution is pretty appealing.”
Clinton added: “There’s just a deep desire to believe that we can have free college, free healthcare, that what we’ve done hasn’t gone far enough, and that we just need to go as far as Scandinavia. And half the people don’t know what that means, but it’s something they deeply feel.”
Hillary made the basement dwellers remarks at a high-priced fundraiser in February 2016, where she tried to explain to wealthy donors why Bernie Sanders had so many supporters.
Clinton said it was because entitled, spoiled, clueless Millennials thought joining Bernie’s political revolution would give their sad, empty lives a sense of purpose.
Of course, Hillary Clinton’s daughter, Chelsea, was never one of the “basement dwellers” because Hillary bought a $10 million Manhattan apartment for Chelsea with the $150 million she amassed using the Clinton Foundation as her personal slush fund.
In fact, Chelsea doesn’t ever have to work to support herself or her two children, thanks to the massive stash granny accumulated from her 30 years of influence peddling as a career politician.
This isn’t the first time Hillary has insulted young, women, and minority voters, whose support she desperately needs to beat Donald Trump.
While pandering to super-rich donors last month, Clinton slammed millions of Trump supporters as racist, sexist and homophobic.
“You can put half of Trump supporters into what I call the ‘basket of deplorables,’ ” said Hillary.
“Racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic, you name it.”
Hillary’s contempt for regular, working-class folks is hardly surprising when you consider that the Clinton Foundation gave fake AIDS drugs to blacks while skimming money off the top.
“Just when Hillary Clinton said she was going to start running a positive campaign, she ripped off her mask and revealed her true contempt for everyday Americans,” said Trump rep Jason Miller.
