I think perhaps she read a few articles about Socialism, learned some of the lingo and learned to parrot back the playbook. Then she somehow slipped in to the nomination because clueless voters heard the playbook being repeated back to them, and that's all they care about.
Now, President Trump has signed an Executive Order to establish the National Council for the American Worker. Comprised of senior Administration officials, the Council is charged with developing a National strategy for training and retraining the workers needed across high-demand industries. The group will convene voices from the public, private, education, labor, and not-for-profit sectors to enhance employment opportunities for Americans of all ages.
Most important, they will focus on getting results. That task begins by asking companies and trade groups to sign a new Pledge to America’s Workers.
Today, more than 20 companies and associations were the first to sign that pledge at the White House. They committed to creating new opportunities over the next five years for American students and workers, including through apprenticeships and work-based learning, continuing education, on-the-job training, and reskilling.
“By signing the Pledge to America’s Workers, these great companies . . . are affirming their commitment to train American workers for American jobs,” President Trump said. “Because America’s strength, America’s heart, and America’s soul is found in our people.”
The United States and its Constitution were founded on the principles of freedom and equal opportunity for all. To ensure that all Americans would be able to realize the benefits of those principles, especially during hard times, the Government established programs to help families with basic unmet needs. Unfortunately, many of the programs designed to help families have instead delayed economic independence, perpetuated poverty, and weakened family bonds. While bipartisan welfare reform enacted in 1996 was a step toward eliminating the economic stagnation and social harm that can result from long-term Government dependence, the welfare system still traps many recipients, especially children, in poverty and is in need of further reform and modernization in order to increase self-sufficiency, well-being, and economic mobility.
The Federal Government’s role is to clear paths to self-sufficiency, reserving public assistance programs for those who are truly in need. The Federal Government should do everything within its authority to empower individuals by providing opportunities for work, including by investing in Federal programs that are effective at moving people into the workforce and out of poverty.

We're not going to defeat these people by mere mockery. Make no mistake, they are gaining ground because we let ourselves become the mockery. We need to get busy fixing what went wrong with us or these loonies will most assuredly start taking over. These people are nothing but opportunists. We gave them this opportunity because we got lazy and selfish. The best way to stop them is to take away that opportunity by bettering ourselves.
These new extremes that are suddenly becoming the norm are the greatest present threat to this country. It shouldn't matter whether you fall on the left or the right of some made up line in the sand anymore. What matters now is working together to end the extremism in both camps. Because I can assure you that it will end all of us if we don't.

I never actually listened to her talk. She comes across as clueless. It's like she woke up one day and decided to be in politics, having never paid attention to what is really going on in the world.
