Robby Mook, the campaign manager for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, responded Wednesday to controversial comments made by Clinton over the weekend by saying that “2016’s over” and Democrats must “move forward” if they want to win in 2018 and 2020.
CNN host Erin Burnett played a clip of Clinton’s speech from over the weekend at the India Today Conclave in Mumbai, India.
“I won the places that represent two-thirds of America’s gross domestic product. So I won the places that are optimistic, diverse, dynamic, moving forward, and his whole campaign ‘Make America Great Again,’ was looking backwards,” Clinton said. “You know, ‘you didn’t like black people getting rights. You don’t like women getting jobs.’”
Burnett, in a clip flagged by Mediaite, said Republicans weren’t the only people critical of Clinton’s comments, noting several Democrats were upset. Mook was hesitant to criticize his former boss, noting she has been a mentor and he admires her “tremendously,” but he went on to say “2016’s over” and the Democratic Party needs to focus on the future.
