Politico bleaches headline for Hillary after she’s caught mocking ‘basement dweller’ Bernie voters

Politico, a left leaning political website, just contorted itself into a pretzel to cover for Hillary Clinton’s degradation of Bernie Sanders voters.

Hours after an audio recording from a February fundraiser of Clinton deriding Sanders supporters as delusional ‘basement dwellers’ leaked Politico published the story with a headline that read “Clinton mocks Sanders supporters in leaked fundraising recording.”

An accurate headline that reflects precisely what was heard on the recording.

But then Hillary fans started attacking the news site.

Politico caved in a hurry with a more Clinton friendly headline that masks the disdain that the Democrat presidential candidate, who called half of Trump supporters “deplorables” and half of Sanders supporters “basement dwellers,” has for many Americans.

And they were mocked brutally for it.
