Because being a Clinton means NEVER taking responsibility for anything.
Latest ‘tell-all’ book on Hillary claims that she already had her scapegoats lined up withing 24 hours of conceding.
The blistering behind-the-scenes book, by Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes, illustrates how Hillary Clinton furiously blamed her defeat on the FBI investigation into her private emails, Russian interference, and Trump’s supposed support from “white nationalists.”
On a phone call with a longtime friend a couple of days after the election, Hillary was much less accepting of her defeat. She put a fine point on the factors she believed cost her the presidency: the FBI (Comey), the KGB (the old name for Russia’s intelligence service), and the KKK (the support Trump got from white nationalists).
“I’m angry,” Hillary told her friend. And exhausted. After two brutal campaigns against Sanders and Trump, Hillary now had to explain the failure to friends in a seemingly endless round of phone calls. That was taking a toll on her already weary and grief-stricken soul. But mostly, she was mad— mad that she’d lost and that the country would have to endure a Trump presidency.
The authors detail how Clinton went out of her way to pass blame for her stunning loss on “Comey and Russia.”
“She wants to make sure all these narratives get spun the right way,” a longtime Clinton confidant is quoted as saying.
The book further highlights how Clinton’s Russia-blame-game was a plan hatched by senior campaign staffers John Podesta and Robby Mook, less than “within twenty-four hours” after she conceded:
That strategy had been set within twenty-four hours of her concession speech. Mook and Podesta assembled her communications team at the Brooklyn headquarters to engineer the case that the election wasn’t entirely on the up-and-up. For a couple of hours, with Shake Shack containers littering the room, they went over the script they would pitch to the press and the public. Already, Russian hacking was the centerpiece of the argument. —Breitbart
Because why should she wait until the evidence is collected before dialing up the political shrieking? She’s got a propaganda war to wage on the guy who beat her!
Why blame her own incompetence? Or the fact that people don’t like the mess two terms of Obama have left us with? Or the fact that we didn’t find Hillary ‘sniper fire’ Clinton very trustworthy?
This shouldn’t really surprise us. Blame-shifting has been the Clinton way from beginning.
There’s always a vast right-wing conspiracy to demonize … somewhere.
Except that the real problem was the fact that — with Podesta’s emails — the conspiracy that was exposed wasn’t on the Right. It was her side.
No problem. She’ll keep spinning it. And the zombies that still follow her will keep buying it.
