Democrats had no idea that Hillary Clinton was going to lose in November 2016. They didn’t have a clue it would even be close. In the days leading up to the election, outlets like the Huffington Post were guaranteeing a landslide victory for Hillary. They could not have been more wrong and they are still having a hard time coming to terms with that to this day.
The left’s favorite excuse? Russia was somehow behind Trump’s victory because they bought a few Facebook ads.
From Fox News:
One year after losing the presidential race, 2016 Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton is still questioning the “legitimacy” of President Trump’s victory, accusing Republicans of voter suppression tactics in swing states and Russians of influencing votes through a “disinformation campaign.”
“I think that there are lots of questions about its legitimacy,” Clinton said of the election during a video interview posted online Friday by the liberal Mother Jones website.
Clinton lamented how “we don’t have a method for contesting” the election in the United States and called for an independent commission to “get to the bottom of what happened.”
Hillary is still running around claiming Russia is the reason she spent more TV money in Omaha than she did in Michigan and Wisconsin combined.
Donna Brazile apparently agrees with Hillary and went on with Chris Matthews to elaborate.
From BizPac Review:
“You may not like a lot of things done in it,” Matthew said of the election on “Hardball” Tuesday. “But the election still counts.”
“Donald Trump cracked the blue wall,” Brazile said on “Hardball” Tuesday. “He was able to win votes in Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin, but, yes, I do believe Secretary Clinton is making a very important point. The role of social media, this coordination between WikiLeaks and possibly the Trump campaign—we need to get to the bottom of it.”
Matthews repeated his question, not satisfied that Brazile completely answered him.
“My question to you is was it a legitimate election? Does it count?” he asked.
“My personal view is that it was not a legitimate election,” Brazile responded, appearing to shock Matthews.
Are you kidding me?
Brazile ended up rambling some incoherent excuse about Russian interference despite the fact everyone knows not a single vote was altered.
Here’s the clip.
The only illegitimate part of the 2016 election season was the DNC’s insane decision to rig the primary process for Hillary. That’s something Brazile seemed to care about when she confirmed the rigging in a recent op-ed.
From Fox News:
The fix was in after all.
Last year’s presidential primary between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders was rigged by the Democratic National Committee – just as Sanders’ supporters suspected – to hand the nomination to Clinton, according to a bombshell claim by Donna Brazile. The onetime Clinton confidante, CNN commentator and former interim party boss made the explosive claim Thursday while touting a new book that could sever her ties to Team Clinton for good.
Make no mistake. This Russia thing is made up out of thin air. It’s not real. It didn’t affect the election.
This is nothing more than sour grapes and it’s pathetic.
