Many women are voting for integrity over gender this election, and that may spell trouble for Hillary Clinton.
Several women were featured in a focus group on “Face The Nation” Sunday and they ripped their fellow female to shreds.
The group saw shown an exchange between CBS news anchor Scott Pelley and Clinton in which she claims she’s always “tried” to tell the truth.
“She just — you can turn off the sound and still see on her face that she is lying,” one woman told focus group moderator Frank Luntz in reaction. “She’s the worst liar I think I’ve ever seen in my life.
“She lied about lying,” one woman observed as the whole group burst into laughter.
It’s at least the second such focus group in which women had the sharpest criticism of Hillary.
During a New Hampshire focus group of Democrats televised on MSNBC in October, “Shannon” didn’t want to say what she really thinks of Hillary Clinton.
The exchange with moderator Mark Halperin began with Shannon saying Hillary’s “scorned” tone can be “off-putting.”
“Tell me what it’s like, what are you seeing,” Halperin pressed.
After sighing, Shannon replied, “You know, when she’s — I don’t want to use the word,” laughing. Then she whispered “bitchy” to Halperin.
“It’s like that ‘women need to be equal’ [attitude], I mean, I don’t know, I don’t feel unequal.”
Another female participant jumped in, saying, “I agree. I don’t feel unequal. I don’t feel I’ve had a job where I feel unequal to my male counterparts. So it’s not an issue that speaks to me.”
A male voter said, “I like Hillary, I think she’s a strong candidate. But she has that –,” pointing to Shannon, “that condescending and I can see that causing gridlock.”
Shannon jumped back in mimicking Clinton, “I’m a woman, I deserve it.”
Halperin asked the group of about 12 voters who thought it could hurt Clinton’s chances and every participant raised their hand.
