Of course he does.
Via NY Post: Everything’s fine, according to the top Democrat in the Senate.
Harry Reid (D-Nev.), the 77-year-old Senate minority leader who is less than a month away from leaving government, wants his party to settle down, as he blamed Democrats’ election debacle on the director of the FBI.
“They have Trump, I understand that. But I don’t think the Democratic Party is in that big of trouble,” Reid told Politico in an interview Wednesday.
“I mean, if Comey kept his mouth shut, we would have picked up a couple more Senate seats and we probably would have elected Hillary,” Reid said, referring to FBI Director James Comey.
In fact, Democrats suffered massive losses in the 2016 election, unexpectedly losing the presidency and failing to gain control of the Senate and House of Representatives.
The controversial Democratic leader also defended his legacy. “I’m sure there are people more capable than I, better-looking than me, better-educated than me, smarter than me. But I’ve got the job. And I try to do the best I can with the job. … I look around and I say, ‘Well, I’m the one that has to do it.’ So I have done the best I can,” he said.
But Republicans are largely glad to see him go. “I don’t have any sense of nostalgia about Harry Reid,” Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) told Politico.
