To date, Hillary Clinton has never shown the humility to admit that she bore most of the blame for her failed 2016 bid for the White House. Neither has her obnoxious husband, Bill Clinton. To do so would require an honesty and self-reflection that is simply not in their DNA.
No, according to Hillary and Bill, everyone else was to blame. Half the American electorate who are, of course, “Deplorables.” FBI Director James Comey, for publicly re-opening the investigation into her email server scandal. Russia, for supposedly hacking her campaign’s and the DNC’s emails. The media, who, despite openly shilling for her, and essentially acting as the propaganda arm of her campaign, was somehow too favorable in its treatment of Donald Trump. And, finally, her own campaign staff.
A new book to be released on April 18, ‘Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign,’ authored by Jonathan Allen and Aime Parnes, gives a behind-the-scenes account of what it was like to work on the campaign for a vindictive and vain Hillary Clinton.
Hillary’s campaign staff are beginning to speak out. It seems that they, too, are tired of being blamed for her failures.
From Phillip Stucky, writing for the Daily Caller:
Bill and Hillary Clinton made no secret of the fact they blame campaign staffers for her defeat in the presidential election, according to a new book about her failed bid.
“She was visibly, unflinchingly pissed off at us as a group,” an unnamed staffer said in the book, according to an excerpt obtained by The Hill. “And she let us know she felt that way.”
The book reveals the former secretary of state was full of excuses for why she faired poorly against Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders in the primary and President Donald Trump in the general election…
Reportedly furious after a dismal showing in the primaries, Clinton manufactured multiple reasons for her performance. She blamed her former campaign director Robby Mook for not selecting the right travel stops and for spending heavily in the wrong areas.
“The underlying truth — the one that many didn’t want to admit to themselves — was the person ultimately responsible for these decisions, the one whose name was on the ticket, hadn’t corrected these problems, all of which had been brought to her attention before primary day. She’d stuck with the plan, and it had cost her,” Allen and Parnes concluded.
To date, neither Hillary or Bill have been able to accept the fact that Mrs. Clinton was a terrible candidate who ran a terrible campaign that simply did not resonate with enough voters. In a country where millions of people are suffering due to decisions and policies made by the previous administration, she offered more of the same. She and her supporters then derided and insulted any who had a different opinion on what needed to be done to set the country right.
That is why Hillary Clinton lost.
