One journalist was finally able to ask the question that we have all been thinking. Why is Hillary unable to blame herself for the election loss. Her answer is pretty shocking. He started by challenging the idea that being a woman had anything to do with her loss.
“Your dynastic appeal or perhaps it was the opposite: The fact that you were called Clinton, the fact that you were first lady basically trumped any novelty — if you forgive the term — of being the first female president of the United States. People looked at your name and your legacy more than they looked at your gender,” said British journalist Matt Frei.
“That doesn’t explain why I led all the way through, why I won the primary by 4 million votes, why I was winning, we had a great convention. I was thought to have won all three debates. That doesn’t explain it, Matt, so that’s why I had to really dig deep,” said Hillary.
“And, yes, I take responsibility. Obviously, there were things I must have been able to do differently in order to have won. But at the end, there was this really perfect storm, and so you had the Comey letter and you had the enormous impact of the Russian theft of emails, the release of them by WikiLeaks, basically now a part of the Russian intelligence apparatus, and the weaponization of that. These were all new phenomena,” said Hillary.
“So you’re still blaming others more than yourself?” asked Frei. “No, I take ultimate responsibility, I don’t blame others,” responded Hillary who wrote an entire book blaming others. “But I think it’s important that people understand what happened,” she said. Check out the video below.
