More from WikiLeaks: Hillary Clinton ‘hates everyday Americans’

The slogan “I Hate Everyday Americans” doesn’t have the same pizzazz as “Fighting for Us,” but the latest dump released by WikiLeaks does suggest the statement does capture Hillary Clinton’s true feelings.

Here is the text of an email dated Apr. 19, 2015 and sent by John Podesta to Clinton communications manager Jennifer Palmieri:

I know she has begun to hate everyday Americans, but I think we should use it once the first time she says I’m running for president because you and everyday Americans need a champion. [Emphasis added]

I think if she doesn’t say it once, people will notice and say we false started in Iowa.

The subject line of the email is ironically “Truth”:


Maybe what this self-acclaimed advocate for the middle class (aka everyday Americans) was admitting in her innermost reflections was her view that all Americans are deplorable. Or maybe it’s that fabulously rich Americans like her look down on us ordinary worker ants.

Whatever the explanation for this candid hate message, the leak is not sitting well among Democratic voters:

The Clinton campaign is trying to paint lipstick on this hot mess by claiming, as do some diehard supporters on Twitter, that these emails were hacked by the Russians and that, therefore, they somehow don’t count:

While the thought that the Russians have gained access to the private emails of a former of secretary of state is troubling, one would imagine all Americans would nevertheless be glad to know the ugly truth about a candidate running for the highest office in the land.

Maybe the Trump campaign should try selling the electorate on the notion that the tape of his “locker room” remarks was hacked by the Russians.
