Two-time failed presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton has blamed everything and everyone other than the lady looking back at her in the mirror for her 2016 presidential election loss. The politically irrelevant former politician began whining and complaining about her stunning loss to Donald Trump soon after Election Day, and shows no signs of letting up. Her hysterical list of excuses now numbers 38 – and counting.
Here is an updated list of the people, organizations, government entities, and abstract concepts Hillary Clinton has blamed for her loss thus far.
1. Former FBI Director James Comey
“As I explain in my book, you know, the Comey letter, which was, now we know, partly based on a false memo from the Russians. He dumps that on me on October 28th, and I immediately start falling [in the polls].”
“Men got paid for the speeches they made, and I got paid for the speeches I made. It was used, I thought I was unfairly used, and all of that, but it was part of the background music. At some point it sort of bleeds into misogyny.”
3. The electoral system
“I beat them both,” Clinton said of her popular vote win against Trump and her primary win that came on the back of Super Delegates, over Bernie Sanders. The problem, she writes, is with the Electoral College.
NY Magazine reports, “Clinton says she thinks she ‘underestimated WikiLeaks and the impact that had, because I thought it was so silly.'”
5. Right-wing media
“They have a mission,” she said of the right-wing media. “They used the rights given to them under the First Amendment to advocate a set of policies that are in their interests.”
6. The mainstream media
Hillary complained, “But what was really interesting, since the mainstream media covered that, as I say like Pearl Harbor, front pages everywhere, huge type, etc.”
7. Democratic National Committee
“I had to inject money into it – the DNC – to keep it going,” she said.
8. Democrat Party
“Let me just do a comparison for you. I set up my campaign and we have our own data operation. I get the nomination. So I’m now the nominee of the Democratic Party. I inherit nothing from the Democratic Party. It was bankrupt.”
9. One thousand Russian agents
“If you look at Facebook, the vast majority of the news items posted were fake. They were connected to, as we now know, the 1,000 Russian agents who were involved in delivering those messages,” she wrote.
Clinton wrote, “You know, there’s all these stories of guys over in Macedonia who are running these fake news sites and I’ve seen them now and you sit there and it looks like a sort of low-level CNN operation.”
The rest of her list . . .
12. Vladimir Putin
13. Donald Trump
14. Republican-enabled voter suppression
15. Citizens United
17. “Millions” of Twitter rants
18. Steve Bannon
20. The “alt-right”
21. Bernie Sanders
22. Suburban women
24. Anti-American forces
25. Bad polling
26. Low-information voters
27. Fake news
28. Colluding Trump campaign officials
29. Stupid Americans who can’t tell the difference between real and “fake news”
30. The broad assumption that I was going to win
31. Goosefer (military intelligence arm of Russians)
33. Data from the Republican National Committee
35. The FBI
36. The GRU (Russian military)
38. Team Hillary was too honest
And now Clinton’s new book is out. The list continues to grow. The beat goes on . . .
