Hillary’s a real winner. Ask her… she’ll tell you … just not from the Oval Office.
Read to the end, and you’ll get to the part where she tries to tell us she beat BOTH Bernie and Trump.
In yet ANOTHER interview… (you’d think she’s flogging a book or something) Hillary stood up and
took responsibility blame-shifted her spectacular implosion as a candidate.
The interview itself was an embarrassingly self-serving series of Clintonian lies … lies of the kind that is making even Democrats wonder why she won’t just go away quietly.
Even Democratic Strategists are admitting Hillary Clinton is a dumpster fire that just won’t go away. (Really, this video is delicious, watching a Democrat turning on Hillary, and being honest about where they went wrong.)
Here are a few snippets from the article:
“I am less surprised than I am worried,” she says of the Comey firing. “Not that he shouldn’t have been disciplined. And certainly the Trump campaign relished everything that was done to me in July and then particularly in October.” But “having said that, I think what’s going on now is an effort to derail and bury the Russia inquiry, and I think that’s terrible for our country.”
Except for the fact that the FBI investigation is continuing, and nobody has evidence of actual interference in it.
The New York Times’ Glenn Thrush, who has reported on Clinton for years, tweeted “mea culpa-not so much,” suggesting that the former candidate “blames everyone but self.” Obama-campaign strategist turned pundit David Axelrod gave an interview claiming that while Clinton “said the words ‘I’m responsible’ … everything else suggested that she really doesn’t feel that way.” Joe Scarborough called her comments “pathetic”; David Gregory suggested she was not “taking real responsibility for the fact that she was not what the country wanted.” And in the Daily News, Gersh Kuntzman delivered a column that began, “Hey, Hillary Clinton, shut the f— up and go away already.”
Later, Amanpour would tell me how surprised she was by the negative reaction. “The idea that she shouldn’t mention the Comey letter when the entire nation and the most respected statisticians are considering its impact is so strange,” she said. “If she were a man, would she be allowed to mention it? As a woman, I am offended by the double standards applied here. Everyone shrieks that Hillary was a bad candidate, but was Trump a good candidate?”
(The article takes a little side-tour to slamming Trump for awhile, calling her loss ‘the Nation’s loss; and calling Trump a ‘goblin’ — nope, we’re not even kidding — before dealing her in with the sexism card again, and then returning to the interview)
Piecing together what happened, with six months of perspective, Clinton says she thinks she “underestimated WikiLeaks and the impact that had, because I thought it was so silly.” Those hacked emails, dripped out over weeks, says Clinton, “were innocuous, boring, inconsequential. And each one was played like it was some breathless flash. And so you got Trump, in the last month of the campaign, talking about WikiLeaks something like 164 times; you’ve got all his minions out there, you’ve got the right-wing media just blowing it up. You’ve got Google searches off the charts
Innocuous and inconsequential?
Didn’t they cost Debbie Wasserman-Schultz her job as DNC head, because she was colluding with Hillary to rig the election against Bernie Sanders?
The press, she believes, didn’t make it any easier. “Look, we have an advocacy press on the right that has done a really good job for the last 25 years,” she says. “They have a mission. They use the rights given to them under the First Amendment to advocate a set of policies that are in their interests, their commercial, corporate, religious interests. Because the advocacy media occupies the right, and the center needs to be focused on providing as accurate information as possible. Not both-sides-ism and not false equivalency.”
Oh right. Vast-Right Wing conspiracy. We’ve never heard that before.
Becuase the Press is famous for its lopsided support of Republicans… especially this LAST election cycle.
We had ‘good crowds’ she said … which must be a reference to the free concerts her sycophantic musicians did on her behalf. People like Springsteen, and Beyonce.
Clinton says the second debate with Trump, during which he loomed menacingly behind her, was one of the hardest situations of the whole campaign. “Because what he was doing was so … uh …” — she pauses to search for words — “so personally invasive: following me, eyeing me.”
Speaking of the debates, and ‘If Hillary Was a Man’ pissing and moaning… have Feminists STILL not seen this social experiment… where the Trump-Hillary debates were reenacted, with the genders reversed? It had a result that NONE of the participants anticipated. It’s pretty corrosive to Hillary’s ‘misogyny’ narrative. Maybe We The People just thought she sucks.
… I don’t think anger’s a strategy.”
You mean it’s not a strategy for you, I clarify. “For me, yeah.” She pauses. “But I don’t think it’s a good strategy for most people.”
But this was an election that was, in many ways, about anger. And Trump and Sanders capitalized on that.
“Yes.” Clinton nods. “And I beat both of them.”
She beat both of them?
It took dirty insider politics rigging the Primaries for her to beat an doddering old Socialist. And the website whose very EXISTANCE was owed to defending BILL CLINTON against Conservatives –came out in support of Bernie Sanders.
The article goes on forever telling us what a Great Person she is.
No mention of how calling people Deplorable may have turned them off.
No mention of how taking Wisconsin for granted, and failing to even VISIT the State could have cost her support there.
No mention of her failing to take other states in the Blue Wall for granted. Michigan, for example.
Nor mention of spending more time with Donors than voters. Or being out-worked and outcampaigned by Donald Trump.
Nope. It’s a vast right-wing conspiracy by mysognisit Russian white men who hate Hillary’s strength and implict greatness. Or something.
With such fawning treatment from the press…
… did Hillary have to at least buy her dinner first?
