Hillary Clinton, who lost the presidential election of 2016, was recently interviewed on Fox News.
In this interview, she made quite a few outrageous claims as to why she lost the election:
She appears to do a complete 180—she says that she took “absolute personal responsibility,” for her loss, but then went on to blame the ‘Russian spies,’ conspiracy theory for Donald Trump’s win.
Fox News reports:
“Hillary Clinton on Tuesday said she took ‘absolute personal responsibility’ for her losing presidential campaign — but went on to blame FBI Director James Comey and Russian interference for aiding Republican rival Donald Trump’s ascension to the presidency.”
“Clinton specifically cited the letter from Comey late in the campaign saying agents were looking into possible new information related to Clinton’s secret, homebrewed computer server. She was ultimately never charged with a crime, and Comey cleared Clinton on the Sunday before the election.”
“She also mentioned WikiLeaks, the antisecrecy website which some analysts believe to be connected to Russia and which posted the hacked emails of Clinton Campaign Chairman John Podesta.”
For those of you unaware of WikiLeaks, they’re an incredibly reputable non-partisan foundation dedicated to exposing government corruption around the globe. Founded by Julian Assange in 2006, they’ve since gone on to expose numerous government scandals in various countries.
From WikiLeaks’ about page:
“WikiLeaks specializes in the analysis and publication of large datasets of censored or otherwise restricted official materials involving war, spying and corruption. It has so far published more than 10 million documents and associated analyses.”
“WikiLeaks has contractual relationships and secure communications paths to more than 100 major media organizations from around the world. This gives WikiLeaks sources negotiating power, impact and technical protections that would otherwise be difficult or impossible to achieve.”
“Although no organization can hope to have a perfect record forever, thus far WikiLeaks has a perfect in document authentication and resistance to all censorship attempts.”
In addition to this, WikiLeaks has also won numerous awards, such as:
- TIME Magazine Person of the Year (2010)
- The Sydney Peace Foundation Gold Medal (2011)
- The Amnesty New Media Award (2009)
- The Sam Adams Award for Integrity (2010)
- …and more
So, when WikiLeaks published numerous leaked emails from the DNC in 2016, you can bet that millions of people saw her for how corrupt she was…and yet, rather than blaming her own corruption, she blames the organization that exposed it.
Clinton also claimed that “misogyny” played a role in her losing the Presidential Election of 2016:
“Moderator Christiane Amanpour at one point asked Clinton if she was a victim of misogyny, to which she replied, ‘Yes I do think it played a role. And I think as we learn more and more about unprecedented foreign interference from a foreign leader who is not in my fan club.’ ”
This woman’s hypocrisy is absolutely incredible. She’s been funded by corrupt Wall Street billionaires, she has ties to George Soros, she’s been caught lying repeatedly, and has endangered classified US intelligence by having her own private email server.
Yet, somehow she’s daft enough to think that her loss was due to sexism and Russian hackers. I think that the American people know better than this, as they made very clear on November 8th, 2016.
