Clinton's loss of key states in the electoral college, including Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, shocked both her own campaign and many political observers.

Democratic politicians and aides have joined the media in publicly denouncing two-time failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's comments insulting President Donald Trump's voters. The more she talks, the more Democrats and her former allies have moved away from her because they fear her words will only destroy the party.

"She put herself in a position where [Democrats] from states that Trump won will have to distance themselves from her even more", another former Clinton aide told the Web site.

'That's a lot of states, ' the ex-aide added. Democrats have been arguing for several months that her sentiments have been counterproductive to the party's rebuilding efforts - the party is working overtime to rebuild the blue wall throughout the Rust Belt that Democrats relied on to win elections.

Clinton slipped on the first few steps, but was saved from falling by a man who was able to hold her up by her left arm.

A former Obama White House official said, 'If these statements are a form of catharsis, it would be in the Democratic Party's best interest for her to get these out of her system soon'.

"If your messaging is that you want to go back in time, that women can't think for themselves, that our husbands, bosses, and sons tell us what to do, that's quite the message going forward into midterms and [the] general election", she said.

'At the RNC, we try not to continue to focus on Hillary Clinton. "We really do try very hard", Reed said. 'But this one is impossible to ignore. You know: 'You didn't like black people getting rights, you don't like women getting jobs.
