Tucker Carlson: If Hillary Clinton Is Such A Strong Woman, Why Is She Playing The Victim?

On Wednesday’s night show, Tucker Carlson said the “sexism trope” from Hillary Clinton is annoying because it’s so “patronizing.” Carlson asked if it is sexist that the majority of married women voted for Donald Trump.

Former Clinton adviser Richard Goodstein argued why the former presidential candidate makes valid points in her memoir about her loss in the election.

CARLSON: Richard Goodstein advised the Clinton campaign in both 2008 and 2016, he joins us on the set tonight. Richard, I’ve never — this is the key question I have never understood, I mean it with all sincerity. If Hillary Clinton was such a strong woman, she’s always telling me she is, why is she playing the victim?

RICHARD GOODSTEIN, DEMOCRATIC STRATEGIST: Well, she’s playing the victim because she was victimized. Indulge me with the first point that Mark just made about O.J. The single most telling moment of this whole Russian investigation was James Comey testifying that in the nine times that he talked with Donald Trump, Trump never once asked, what did the Russians do? Which was like O.J. never asking the police what happened to Nicole. He knew.

CARLSON: Okay. That’s evidence right there. Not colluding. Well —

(CROSSTALK)

Is that what you’re saying?

GOODSTEIN: His son has already admitted to collusion. Right?

CARLSON: Yes.

GOODSTEIN: You know, it’s like going to rob the bank, unfortunately, he claims, the vault was empty. But he definitely tried to rob the bank.

CARLSON: Right. Okay. Let me just ask you a bigger question though. So, she blames sexism, as she always does and always has. I’m not a Hillary hater by the way at all. And she’s got good qualities, but the sexism trope is annoying because it’s so stupid and it’s also so patronizing. The majority of married women in America voted for Donald Trump, are they sexist?

GOODSTEIN: Ask Carly Fiorina. Have you asked her whether she was objected to sexism? Have you asked other leaders in the industry?

CARLSON: I’m not saying sexism doesn’t exist. I’m saying Hillary Clinton is saying that sexism among American voters, their distaste for powerful woman, strong woman like herself led to her defeat. And my question is, if sexism played such a role, why did the majority of married women, not men, women, vote for Hillary? It does not make sense. Unless they are sexist too. In which case it’s a conspiracy more vast than I even imagine.

GOODSTEIN: Right. So, she actually did better among women than Barack Obama had. Look, the fact of the matter is —

CARLSON: She lost married woman!

GOODSTEIN: What she would tell you is that all these messages that the Russians and the Macedonians, your favorite, paid for that went into people who were undecided in this swing counties in Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, actually influenced opinion. Just like your billions of advertisers on FOX News want to change people’s minds.

CARLSON: I mean, it’s a little bit patriotism because what she’s saying is, opposition to me is unreasonable. Either you are hoodwinked by a foreign power or you are blinded by your own bigotry. She doesn’t allow for what actually happened, which is a lot of people took a sober look at her and Trump and said, you know what, I got problems with him but I prefer him to her because I just don’t like her. She’s not even open to that possibility.
