Denial is not just a river in Egypt.
Speaking during an interview on CNN, losing presidential candidate Hillary Clinton explained why she thinks she lost the election…
“I was on the way to winning before Jim Comey’s letter and ‘Russian’ Wikileaks… scared off late voters.”
So to be clear – until the head of the FBI admitted to the world that many of your actions were under investigation for potentially breaking law and WikiLeaks published ‘proof’ of multiple mis-dealings and relationships – you were on the way to winning? So, other than that how was the play Mrs. Lincoln?
All of this is ironic given Democratic Party strategists recent comments:
why Hillary lost the 2016 election: “her base didn’t turn out.” Sure, it probably had absolutely nothing to do with all those criminal FBI investigations or the fact that Trump was able to flip some Midwest states that haven’t gone Red since Ronald Reagan. Per McClatchy:
A select group of top Democratic Party strategists have used new data about last year’s presidential election to reach a startling conclusion about why Hillary Clinton lost. Now they just need to persuade the rest of the party they’re right.
Many Democrats have a shorthand explanation for Clinton’s defeat: Her base didn’t turn out, Donald Trump’s did and the difference was too much to overcome.
Ironically, while offering up the most ridiculous explanation possible for the outcome of the 2016 election, undoubtedly in an effort to erase all blame from Hillary herself (it wasn’t Hillary’s fault, her team just didn’t turn out the voters…they failed her), one strategist noted it’s important to “learn the right lesson from 2016” and not just the one “that makes us feel good at night.”…
