Former 2012 GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain said Hillary Clinton is pandering to black voters to keep them “on the reservation,” but that it won’t work.
Appearing on Fox Business Channel’s “Varney & Co.” Tuesday, Cain accused the Democratic presidential candidate of doing “her best pandering to black voters,” blaming her for a lack of accountability.
“People want to call it systemic racism,” Cain said. “No. It’s a lack of accountability on the part of the people who are in charge.”
Though Cain agreed Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders may be causing Clinton to align herself more with the Obama administration in an attempt to attract minority votes, he said it is a strategy that will not work. “A lot of black voters,” Cain said, are not “falling for Hillary’s pandering. They are not falling for the fact that, because she is now trying to grab a hold of his (Obama’s) coattail, they’re not falling for that either.”
Cain pointed to a shift in black voting patterns that could negatively impact Clinton’s bid for office. However, he said there will still be those who will vote for her as a Democratic reflex, while not holding the party accountable. “The ones that are in denial about the failure of Obama,” he said, “they won’t get it.”
