Hillary Clinton has put forth a formidable list of culprits for why she lost the 2016 presidential election.
The Fox News Research team totaled up the excuses and found a whopping 24 items!
At an appearance yesterday, Clinton continued to blame Russian interference and fake news and dismissed the email investigation as a factor.
The list so far also includes the FBI, former FBI Director James Comey, people who assumed she’d win, the Democratic National Committee, the New York Times and fake Macedonian news sites.
Clinton also threw Netflix under the bus yesterday, claiming its conservative documentaries undermined her campaign.
“I was on the way to winning until the combination of Jim Comey’s letter on October 28 and Russian WikiLeaks raised doubts in the minds of people who were inclined to vote for me, but got scared off,” Clinton said at a Women for Women International event on May 2.
The Clinton campaign previously blamed former president Obama for her loss, arguing that he should have come out sooner with evidence of Russian meddling in the election and slapped sanctions on Russia sooner.
Clinton threw Facebook and other social media under the bus, and managed to tie Russia in as well on Wednesday.
“If you look at Facebook, the vast majority of the news items posted were fake,” she asserted. “They were connected to, as we now know, the 1,000 Russian agents who were involved in delivering those messages … Some people were sucked in.”
Her opponent Donald Trump’s fake Twitter followers didn’t help either, she continued.
“We know they’re bots,” she stated, possibly “sitting in Moscow, or Macedonia, or the White House.”
The former secretary of state did not spare the Democratic National Committee during her explanation for her loss Wednesday night.
“I inherit nothing from the Democratic Party,” Clinton said, describing the days immediately after she won her party’s nomination. “Its data was mediocre to poor, non-existent, wrong. I had to inject money into it.”
Jesse Watters said Hillary Clinton is acting like she said President Trump would if he lost the 2016 election.
“Hillary is behaving exactly how Trump was going to behave if he lost,” Watters said on “The Five,” referring to Trump’s allegations of a possibly rigged election during the campaign.
Tucker Carlson recounted Clinton’s wide-ranging “conspiracy theory” regarding her election loss, in which she blamed the press, politicians and Macedonian fake news sites.
And Charles Krauthammer opined that Clinton is now making “pathetic” arguments for why she lost.
