Hillary Clinton has blamed virtually everyone but herself for losing the presidential election – Russian hackers, the media, the DNC, FBI Director James Comey and his last-minute decision to reopen the email probe, etc.
“I take responsibility for every decision I made, but that’s not why I lost,” she said this Wednesday during a Q&A session at the annual Code Conference in Ranchos Palos Verdes, California.
She even lashed out at her own party, saying she “inherited nothing” from Democrats after she won the party’s nomination. “It was bankrupt,” said Hillary of the DNC. “It was on the verge of insolvency. Its data was mediocre to poor, nonexistent, wrong. I had to inject money into it.”
“I was the victim of a very broad assumption I was going to win,” she complained.
Hillary even defended her decision to use a private email server, arguing that she broke no rules by doing so. “I was very responsible and not at all careless,” she said. Most informed people viewed the email scandal as “the biggest nothing-burger ever,” she insisted.
Hillary explained how a Russian-led misinformation campaign was launched against her using social media. The 2016 presidential election was the first time “we had the tech revolution really weaponized politically,” she said. “It was aimed at me but it’s a much deeper, more persistent effort to literally turn the clock back on so much of what we have achieved as a country.”
Hillary told her audience that she isn’t “going anywhere,” but insisted that she would not be running for president again (thank god).
“I have a big stake in what happens in this country…I am very, you know, unbowed and unbroken about what happened because I don’t want it to happen to anybody else,” she said. “I’m going to, you know, keep writing and keep talking and keep supporting people who are on the front lines of the resistance.”
President Trump has repeatedly criticized Hillary and the Dems for refusing to take responsibility for Hillary’s loss. “Crooked Hillary Clinton now blames everybody but herself, refuses to say she was a terrible candidate. Hits Facebook and even Dems and DNC,” he tweeted on Wednesday.
Editor’s note: This has become more and more a theme of the liberals. I am a victim and eveyone owes me something. Or more specifically, the rich conservative people owe me something.
