Bill Clinton to Millennials: You Are Everything That's Wrong With This Country, Please Vote for Hillary
Bill Clinton, who continues to be allowed to wander onto stages and address thousands of people as if entirely by accident, found a new group of people to yell at yesterday. Bill’s latest bad stump speech topic: Millennials! They’re ruining everything. Now please vote for my wife.

Speaking in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, Clinton started rambling about stagnant incomes. And why, exactly, is the economy so very bad? Because of people like you and me. Take it away, Bill:
The reason that there’s so much anxiety, intensity, anger, blame in this election is that 80 percent of the American people have not gotten a pay raise since the crash eight years ago, after inflation.
A lot of young people feel like they’ve played by the rules, went to school, they’re gonna graduate with debt they can’t repay, or they’ve already graduated with debt they can’t repay, and they may not ever get to do what they really wanted to do with their lives.
So why are all these young millennials so angry all the time? Because they’re poor! And why are they so poor? According to the future First Husband, “If all the young people who claim to be disillusioned now had voted in 2010, we wouldn’t have lost the Congress, and we’d probably have our incomes back,” he said.
The fact that Democrats of all ages vote in lower numbers in off-cycle election years is apparently beside the point.
And on an unrelated note, a recent poll showed that millennials voters support Bernie Sanders over Hillary Clinton at a rate of 54 to 37 percent. This probably does not help.
