Nothing says the Christmas season is here quite like getting unsolicited advice from failed presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton. On a recent episode of her podcast, she shared her recommendations for dealing with those who dare to disagree with Democrats.
Posting on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter, Clinton acknowledged that holiday gatherings are quickly approaching. This is a time when her few leftist minions may unfortunately have to mingle with conservatives.
She said her latest podcast offering will deal with “how we can talk, heart to heart, with people we may not see eye to eye with.”
Hillary serves up holiday advice of how to talk to deplorable family members

Never forget, this is the same person who smeared tens of millions of Americans during her doomed 2016 campaign for the White House. Clinton was addressing a fundraiser when she expressed her true feelings concerning conservatives.
She declared, “To just be grossly generalistic, you can put half of Trump supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right? Racist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic, you name it.”
Clinton did not stop there. She told her audience that then-candidate Trump had empowered these despicable Americans. “He has given voice to their websites that used to only have 11,000 people, now have 11 million.”
Many of these people, she added, were “irredeemable” and “not America.”
The blowback from Clinton’s mean-spirited tirade was immediate and broad. The next day she made a half-hearted effort to backtrack, but her sentiments from the night before were crystal clear.
Clinton claimed she was guilty of being “grossly generalistic” and admitted that half of Trump’s supporters were not as she categorized them. But the damage was done, much in the way that Barack Obama made his infamous “guns and religion” observation in 2008.
With one striking difference.
Obama won his election and served two terms, while Clinton’s bid to become the first female U.S. president went down in flames. Obviously, she has not moved past her disappointment.
And now Clinton wants to advise good Americans on how to deal with people who disagree with them. If she had been better at this in 2016, who knows what the result would have been.
Instead, she did what Democrats do, and that’s drive a wedge between people. The best holiday advice anyone could receive is to ignore whatever Clinton is promoting and treat everyone with respect. Not as deplorables.
