Hillary Clinton Explains Why She Really Lost to Trump


The most qualified womyn…

It’s the usual suspects and, of course, sexism.

From NBC News: Almost four months after her stunning defeat, Hillary Clinton on Thursday primarily blamed her loss to President Donald Trump on four factors that were beyond her control.

The former Democratic presidential candidate cited Russian meddling in the election, FBI Director James Comey’s involvement toward the end of the race, WikiLeaks’ theft of emails from her campaign chairman, and misogyny.

Clinton’s comments came during her first post-election interview at Tina Brown’s eighth annual Women in the World Summit in New York City. She was questioned by Nicholas Kristof of The New York Times.

She largely cited these factors for her defeat:

  • Russia. “A foreign power meddled with our election,” she said, labeling it “an act of aggression.” She called for an independent, bipartisan investigation into the Kremlin’s involvement and said the probe should examine whether there was collusion with the Trump campaign.
  • Misogyny. “Certainly, misogyny played a role. That has to be admitted,” she said. Clinton added that “some people — women included — had real problems” with the idea of a woman president.
  • Comey. Clinton cited as damaging to her campaign his unusual decision to release of a letter on October 28, less than two weeks before Election Day, that said he was looking at additional emails related to the FBI probe of the former secretary of state’s use of a private server.
  • WikiLeaks. Weeks of disclosures of stolen emails from the personal account of then-Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta, were particularly harmful, Clinton said, adding that it “played a much bigger role than I think many people yet understand.”

She said the combination of Comey’s actions and the WikiLeaks’ revelations “had the determinative effect.”

About her own role, she said, “There were things I could have done better.”

While Clinton said there were “lots of contributing factors” to her failure to secure the nation’s highest office, she called Russia’s interference the “weaponization of information.”

“I didn’t fully understand how impactful that was and so it created doubts in people,” Clinton said. “But then the Comey letter coming as it did — just 10 days before the election — really raised questions in a lot of people.”

Two days before the election, Comey announced that none of the emails would lead to criminal charges — leaving in place the FBI’s determination from July. Officials told NBC News that nearly all of the emails were duplicates of emails that had been examined already.

Kristof also asked Clinton about Trump. “I don’t understand the commitment to hurt so many people that this administration, this White House, seems to be pursuing,” Clinton said, pointing to the immigration ban, the slashing of U.S. funding for the UN Population Fund, and the failed health care bill.  What they did or tried to do on the health care bill, which I will confess to this — having listened to them talking about repeal and replace for 8 years, or 7 years now, and they had not a clue what that meant,” she said. “They had no idea. I don’t know that any of them had ever even read the bill.”

Clinton, who is writing a book that she said would examine her defeat last year, said she doubted she would ever seek public office again. “Devastating,” was how she described her loss.

  1. She blames everybody for her losses, except herself. She doesn’t understand that she is passé, not wanted, out of touch, a globalist and socialist, a rotten liar, she continues to feed and inflate her ego and wants it all for herself at any cost. As a woman she has descended into the lowest. along with her unscrupulous husband but, isn’t she the same? Sickllary, don’t make waves, You are not in the clear yet.

    • Inability to accept any responsibility for one’s mistakes is but one of many symptoms of the narcissist. None of the symptoms of narcissism should be included in the Personal Qualifications section of one’s curriculum vitae. Because of narcissism, power can corrupt absolutely, and it is the seekers of power who attain it.

    • Yeah True George…like Nicky Hailey (sp?) or someone LIKE HER—or Joanie Earnst—- instead of someone (Hillary) who has been tracked and proved to be a 30-40-year serial liar all out in the face of the public…a career politician who has NEVER in her entire life had any other job except in the public service, but whom ends up somehow with billions of dollars of assets, including multiple homes in several of the most real-estate-rich areas of our northeast “privileged” communities….PLUS a billion-dollar “foundation” with her husband…..??????? I work for the public (NO BILLIONS HERE) and I have to work PAST normal “retirement age” b/c I’m mortgaged up to my ears b/c of the last Obama decade, wherein I was audited 3 times by the Feds and once by State of CA….all, as I can see….JUST to go over OLD records and see where they could SKIM more money off of those who really DID pay taxes in the first place…b/c…..they were/had been such shits in handling the American economy in the last decade (both CA and Obama), that the funds had to be squeezed out of tax payers “en retro” to keep their socialist/ entitlement states going…….

  8. Really, she came out of the woods to sob a bucket a tears to a round of audiences? Oh, boohoo. She never had a chance from Day.1 anyway because all the polls were faked (oversampling Dems repeatedly). Her only “fans” were a bunch of old hippie women & aliens, & they were outnumbered.

  9. Give her a break. Lying, devious, power hungry, corrupt, hateful bags of crap aren’t going to admit to being what they really are. Does anyone expect Clinton to look reality in the face and describe it accurately?
