It’s been six months since she lost the election and Hillary Clinton continues to blame everyone but herself. She decided to stay in the spotlight and deliver speeches to every event. However, even the Democrats can’t stand her anymore, as they said they’d like Hillary Clinton to to step out of the limelight.
The consensus among former Clinton aides, former Obama aides, and Democratic strategists is that Clinton’s remarks blaming the Democratic National Committee and others for her election loss are hurting the party and making her look bitter, the Hill reported.
Dozens of Democrats were interviewed about Clinton’s remarks, including many staunch Clinton supporters and former aides.
They said they understood the need for Clinton to explain what happened in the election, but they also emphasized Clinton’s anger over former FBI Director James Comey.
“Good God, what is she doing?” one longtime aide stated after watching Clinton at the Recode conference in California on Wednesday. “She’s apparently still really, really angry. I mean, we all are. The election was stolen from her, and that’s how she feels.”
“But to go out there publicly again and again and talk about it? And then blame the DNC?” the aide wondered. “It’s not helpful to Democrats. It’s not helpful to the country, and I don’t think it’s helpful to her.”
“I’m not sure there is a political strategy here,” said Democratic strategist Brad Bannon. “It sounds to me like more of a personal strategy.
“Complaining about an outcome and blaming everyone else is not a good political strategy,” he added.
Jamal Simmons, a Democratic strategist stated: “It would be nice to hear a little more about the things she did wrong, which I believe mattered more than what she has discussed.”
