Oh, this is so disgusting. I’m sorry to burden you with it. The woman lost an election because of her own incompetence, unattractive personality, and corruption, and because many voters wanted massive change from the ways things were being done in Washington. Which is what she represented.
“It wasn’t a perfect campaign — there is no such thing — but I was on the way to winning until a combination of Jim Comey’s letter on October 28 and Russian WikiLeaks raised doubts in the minds of people who were inclined to vote for me and got scared off,” she said during a mutual admiration society event Tuesday in the form of an interview with CNN’s Christine Amanpour before an audience of adoring women in New York. “The reason I believe we lost were the intervening events in the last 10 days,” she said.
Sure, there are always intervening events you can’t control that work against you. If Trump lost, he could have blamed the Access Hollywood tape. But while it could have killed him, it didn’t. The events that worked against Hillary did kill her.
Just to be clear, there would have been no Comey investigation if Clinton had not kept a private email server. Was it Comey’s fault that she kept a private email server handling classified documents while she was Secretary of State?
“I take absolutely personal responsibility. I was the candidate, I was the person who was on the ballot. I am very aware of the challenges, the problems, the shortfalls that we had,” Clinton also said. Meantime, she said that misogyny “played a role” in her loss.
It’s such a typical Washington thing to do. To say, I am responsible — because since Kennedy took responsibility for the Bay of Pigs, that’s what you’re supposed to do — but then to also say, Actually, I am not responsible.
More perniciously, she suggested there was collusion between President Trump’s campaign and the Russians.
“If you chart my opponent and his campaign’s statements, they quite coordinated with the goals that” Putin had, she said.
Wow. I’ve never heard a defeated presidential candidate try to undermine our system in such a way. She’s going, with her upcoming book and Resistance Tour, to do more harm than the Russians did. At least we expect such things of the Russians.
Hillary Clinton believed she was entitled to be president. Americans decided otherwise. That’s what happened. She wants all of this to sound high-minded, but she is just a small and petty sore loser, who, as fits the Clinton M.O., will do what’s best for her and not the country.
Trump decided not to prosecute her for her alleged crimes, at least in part because he didn’t think it would be good for the country. Even Richard Nixon decided not to challenge what was probably an election stolen from him by JFK. Al Gore ended his fight too. Not Hillary. the Narcissists of Chappaqua will never stop.
