After someone tweeted her about taking solace in the idea that Joe Biden would have won if he had run, Star Jones responded by blaming Hillary’s electoral defeat on white men, white women and white privilege.

Many on the Left dwell in a world of denial where Republicans can never actually win elections on issues. It can’t be because Obamacare was such a colossal disaster that families who have seen their insurance premiums skyrocket wanted a change. It can’t be that Americans who have witnessed crimes committed by dangerous illegal immigrants want the border surge to be stopped. It can’t be the fact that a large swath of Americans decided they did not want one more leftist ideologue added to the Supreme Court. It has to be because Republican voters are a bunch of racists, sexists and bigots.
@StarJonesEsq Like there can be no other reasons white men voted for Trump. Is this the best analysis you can give?

Newsflash to Star Jones: Barack Obama ran on specific issues and changing the status quo, and he won twice. Donald Trump ran on specific issues and changing the status quo, and he won. Enough of the demonizing.
