Kayleigh McEnany has fired back at Hillary Clinton after the twice-failed Democrat presidential candidate claimed that American voters don’t “really understand” what is at stake in the midterm elections.
Clinton was trying to shift the blame onto the public as the Democrats appear to be walking into a crushing defeat.
Hillary claimed on MSNBC that voters are unaware of the “threat” that Republicans pose in the midterms.
“I think that with all of the noise that we’ve gotten in this election season I don’t think that people are really able to grasp that.
“But more importantly, I’m not sure they really understand the threats to their way of life.
“They may think that whoever’s chairing a committee, you know, kind of abstract.
“But the Republicans in the House and others like the chair of the Republican Senate Campaign Committee are on record saying they’re going to put Social Security and Medicare up for a vote.
“Now I don’t understand why every American, not just people eligible for those two programs that they have paid into that they have worked hard for, that they have earned, are not up in arms.
“We’ve got lots of problems right now in our country.
“We need sensible people to come together to try and solve them.
“The last thing we need is to make life even harder for the vast majority of Americans because it’s not just seniors who would have Medicare and Social Security on the chopping block.
“It would be their children and their grandchildren who would have to step in and fill the hole that they had left.
“I didn’t see a big outpouring on the part of elected officials to stand with Nancy Pelosi the way she has stood with Republicans as well as Democrats in times of real terror like on Jan. 6.
“So ask yourselves, please, why would you entrust power to people who they themselves are unable to see how terrible it is that someone may be attacked in their home or don’t really care because they somehow think it’ll get them votes or get them elected?
“This is a real threat to the heart of democracy,” Clinton said.

“Outnumbered” co-host Emily Compagno responded to Hillary’s remarks, saying:
“It is preposterous to me what an ego she has, the elite nature of her that she still thinks she knows better than everyone in her party and somehow the GOP as well,”
“Apparently Hillary Clinton hasn’t learned her lesson from her ‘deplorables’ comment in 2016 that we all remember,” said co-host Kayleigh McEnany.
