Democrat presidential hopefuls participated in a “black and brown” forum Monday for Univision’s offshoot network Fusion where front-runner Hillary Clinton stumbled on two pointed questions about white privilege.
Audience member Thalia Anguiano asked the former secretary of state to describe an instance in her life where she directly benefited from her “white privilege.”
Rather than mention a time where she might have gotten a job she didn’t deserve she instead waxed poetic about a time from her childhood where she volunteered to babysit the children of migrant workers in Chicago.
“I’m watching these kids and their families, they have to work so hard and the place they live is not very nice,” Clinton said “And I just felt, you know, I have a different kind of life. I didn’t call it a particular name but it was a different life and I knew that.”
Another question she stealthily dodged came from forum moderator Rembert Browne.
“The danger of ISIS is clearly a major threat to American safety, but personally, I know many minorities who are much more concerned with racist attacks at the local level than radical Islamists, so just — question to put it plainly since often, issues of race are tiptoed, do you believe that white terrorism and extremism is as much a threat to some in this country as something like ISIS?”
“Yes, I believe there are all kinds of underground movements and efforts in our country that try to use violence or assert beliefs that I find often lead to violence,” Clinton said before outright accusing some police officers of being terrorists.
“I think that when you have police violence that terrorized communities, that doesn’t show the respect that you’re supposed to have from respecting people in your authority, that can feel, also, terrorizing,” she said.
Clinton then somehow got around to blaming guns for the entire problem.
Even Liberals weren’t impressed with Hillary’s rambling response:
@ThisIsFusion All I could think of was… "Great question. WTF is that answer?!" So, yes she did.

@ThisIsFusion I think this question was a long time coming, she could have prepared for. She turned her response into a sentimental story.

@ThisIsFusion Although "white privilege" is just another fascist prog scum illusion-if it was real,Hillary would be a prime example.
