Clinton describes Sanders supporters as ‘basement-dwellers’ & ‘baristas’ in leaked recording, by RT.

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton made forthright remarks about Bernie Sanders’ supporters during a private meeting with fundraisers, an audio from which has been leaked following an email hack. …

Clinton called for an “understanding” of the motives of Sanders’ younger backers, while describing them in terms that fluctuate between patronizing and unflattering.

They feel they got their education and the jobs that are available to them are not at all what they envisioned for themselves. And they don’t see much of a future,” said Clinton …

“If you’re feeling like you’re consigned to, you know, being a barista, or you know, some other job that doesn’t pay a lot, and doesn’t have some other ladder of opportunity attached to it, then the idea that maybe, just maybe, you could be part of a political revolution is pretty appealing.
