But I’m still baffled that Ari Melber basically gave her an open-book test answer to just repeat, and she still went around it with the “Latina women are the real heroines.” The apology about what she “meant” regarding Latinos felt like someone’s written PR answer. Throughout her answer, she never once specified Latino men, just “men.” And that answer doesn’t work either because black men voted for Clinton and Biden in larger numbers than Hispanic women so I don’t know where she got that “in every state” number from.
