Clift: Hillary’s GOP Enemies Comment Was ‘Lighthearted’

On Friday’s “McLaughlin Group,” Eleanor Clift argued that Democratic presidential candidate former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was being “lighthearted” when she called Republicans enemies that she’s made.

Clift stated, “I just want to say one thing about the comment about Republicans. Hillary said, in a lighthearted way, when asked what kind of enemies she made. She mentioned, I think, the drug companies, and maybe the insurance companies. The Iranians. And she said, oh and I guess the Republicans, too. As a senator, she worked across the aisle with, you know, [Sen.] John McCain (R-AZ) and many other Republicans. So, I don’t think she’s closing down the avenue to the other side.”
