Pelosi: White Men Don't Support Hillary Because They're God-fearing Homophobic Gun Nuts

In an interview on Tuesday at the Democratic National Convention, PBS host Judy Woodruff asked Rep. Nancy Pelosi about the fact that Donald Trump is handily beating Hillary Clinton among ‘non-college educated’ white men, and how the Democratic nominee would be able to counter that.

Pelosi said that Clinton will be able to make up for the deficit with a strong economic agenda, but then proceeded to explain why the Democratic nominee is doing so poorly among this demographic.

“So many times non college educated white males have voted Republican, have voted against their own economic interest because of guns, because of gays, and because of God, the three G’s,” she said, “God being the woman’s right to choose.”

Her answer—revealing how Democrats truly feel about this segment of the population—is reminiscent of President Obama’s infamous remarks in 2008 when he categorized conservatives as those who’ve become “bitter and cling to their guns” and “religion.”
