NEW YORK – Hillary Clinton says she meant no disrespect when she said some women voters are more swayed by men.

Clinton took to Facebook on Saturday to explain comments she made during an interview in India last week when she said: Democrats “do not do well with white men, and we don’t do well with married, white women. And part of that is an identification with the Republican Party, and a sort of ongoing pressure to vote the way that your husband, your boss, your son, whoever, believes you should.”

The Democrat wrote that as much as she hates the possibility, “it’s not that crazy when you think about our ongoing struggle to reach gender balance– even within the same household.”

Clinton says she did not realize how hard it would hit many who heard it.

Clinton repeated that she lost the support of white women overall “to a candidate who relies on scare tactics and false attacks, masking the fact that he is otherwise no friend to most Americans.”
