Barbra Streisand Bluntly States Hillary’s Loss For One Reason and One Reason Only

Barbra Streisand is one of Hollywood’s most outspoken liberals and an ardent Hillary Clinton supporter. Naturally, she was devastated when Donald Trump won in November. But she says she knows why Hillary lost — in fact, Streisand says there’s one simple reason.

According to Streisand, Hillary lost the election due to sexism. It wasn’t because of her e-mail scandal, her poorly-run campaign, or her unwillingness to campaign in flyover states. No, it was because sexism is just that prevalent.

“Women are still so underestimated; it’s incredible to watch even this last election with Hillary, the kind of strong woman, the powerful woman, the educated woman, the experienced woman, being thought of as the other, or too elite, or too educated,” she said. “It’s very, very odd to me, and it was heartbreaking for her to lose, you know?”

She then added that “power and woman has always been suspect. Strong women have always been suspect … in this country.” Streisand supported Hillary throughout the election, appearing at fundraising events for Hillary and also frequently and openly criticized Donald Trump.

Of course, the reality is that millions of women did vote for Trump over Hillary. Democrats made a mistake in nominating a deeply unpopular, flawed candidate who came with a closet full of skeletons. Then you add in that liberals — liberals like Streisand — were openly contemptuous of average Americans across the country, belittling them as weak and stupid for not having the same political views as Democrats do and it’s not that hard to figure out why Democrats lost so fiercely in November.

People don’t like being insulted. They don’t appreciate the insinuation that if they don’t think or vote a certain way, then they must be uneducated or inexperienced… or sexist. And if Streisand and her fellow liberals continue with this line of thinking, then it’s only going to encourage even more Democratic losses down the line.
