Doubt it. Consider who her audience was at the time, a gay community. There is hardly a group Trump hasn't insulted and half his supporters have cheered. They were never going to vote for Hillary anyway and the rest of us empathize with those groups Hillary listed. I think Hillary took a gamble of marginalizing those who are anti everybody as opposed to people who are inclusive towards all groups.
I guess you're not familiar with the term legislating from the bench because you don't seem to have a grasp on its meaning
In a 5-4 decision, the Supreme Court held Section 4 of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 unconstitutional. Section 4 contained the legislative formula to determine which jurisdictions must get “preclearance” from the federal government to change their voting laws—a procedure mandated by Section 5 of the Act. The formula had not been updated by Congress since 1975. The Court held that the decline in racially discriminatory practices in the last decades—which occurred in large part because of the Voting Rights Act—rendered the formula too outdated to pass constitutional muster
The very existence of Section 4 and 5 of the Voting Rights Act, as stated by the conservative Justices, prevented racially discriminatory voting practices in the last decades. The actual reason the conservative Justices claim that Section 4 and 5 was outdated was because of the decline of racially discriminatory practices in the last decades. That argument makes absolutely no sense. To say that a law is outdated because the law has successfully been doing what it was intended to do makes absolutely no sense. The conservative Justices are actually stating that the reason this law is outdated is because the law is working. Let me reiterate this another way. The conservative Justices would have left Section 4 and 5 in place as the law of the land if it were not for the Decline of racially discriminatory voting practices. To eliminate Section 4 and 5 for the very reason the conservative Justices gave, would revert back to these states participating in discriminatory practices which was clearly demonstrated in various states across the country immediately after Section 4 and 5 were struck down. When or if Section 4 and 5 of the Voting Rights Act were to ever become outdated, it should have been the job of Congress to make that determination through legislation. Since Congress has not come to that conclusion, the law should have remained in place. This is clearly legislating from the bench. This is clearly Judicial Activism.
The law in question established special provisions permitting Federal oversight of matters of local government in selected Southern States precisely to ensure the elimination of long-established practices used in these states to preserve segregation and inhibit voting and the acquisition of political power among Blacks and to replace them with the more equitable conditions that prevailed in other states. That mission has been accomplished and the differences in those areas between the States in question and the others has largely vanished. The special provisions applicable to only specified states designed to overcome specified practices that limited voting and political representation by Black citizens in them are no longer required, precisely because the conditions that justified this abnormal limitation on the Constitutional rights of the states in question have vanished.
This ruling and this video occurred in 2013 demonstrating the meaning of legislating from the bench and judicial activism
It doesn't matter what people think. We live under the auspices of the electoral college to give equal weight to smaller states.
Don't you know that reality is not allowed on this site?
Sometimes it sure seems that way
I suspect the chief element of Trump's appeal is the contrast he presents to the prevailing group-think, and the direct challenges he makes to the condescending, self congratulating crowd of contemporary progressives who claim to have exclusive knowledge of what's good for the rest of us, while ignoring their own, abuse of power, ineptitude in action and the dismal results they have been delivering for the past seven years.
vote for Trump."
Addressing the issue of Trump's popularity, Clinton said: "To just be grossly generalistic, you can put half of Trump supporters into what I call the 'basket of deplorables.' Right? Racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic, you name it.
"And unfortunately, there are people like that and he has lifted them up … he tweets and retweets offensive, hateful, mean-spirited rhetoric."
She continued: "Now some of those folks, they are irredeemable, but they are not America but the other basket … are people who feel that government has let them down, the economy has let them down, nobody cares about them, nobody worries about what happens to their lives and their futures. They are just desperate for change … they don't buy everything he says but he seems to hold out some hope that their lives will be different.
"There are only 60 days left to make our case and don't get complacent. Don't see the latest outrageous, offensive, inappropriate comment and think 'well, he's done this time,'" she said.
