Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer this weekend confirmed what we’ve all known for a while: that Crooked Hillary did not lose the November presidential election because of Moscow’s alleged interference.
“When you lose to somebody who has a 40 percent popularity, you don’t blame other things – Comey, Russia – you blame yourself,” he said. “So what did we do wrong? People didn’t know what we stood for, just that we were against Trump. And still believe that,” he added.
His comments echoed those of Michael Bloomberg who last month said that candidate Clinton’s message could be summed up as, “Vote for me because I’m a woman and the other guy’s bad.”
Schumer’s comments, however, differ sharply from what Clinton has been saying for months now. She has blamed the FBI, the agency’s former director James Comey, Obama, Moscow, WikiLeaks to name just a few. In fact she has blamed her defeat on 24 different factors since voters rejected her last year…except herself!
To be fair, Clinton did state that she took “absolute personal responsibility” for her defeat in early May.
“I was the candidate. I was the person on the ballot,” she said.
But she soon reverted to blaming someone else for her failure to reach the finish line and remains convinced that she was on course to take over from Obama.
“I was on the way to winning until the combination of Jim Comey’s letter and WikiLeaks raised doubts in the minds of people inclined to vote for me. The evidence for that intervening event is compelling and persuasive. If the election had been on October 27, I would be your president,” she said with a straight face.
President Trump was quick to pick up on the Schumer interview and took the opportunity to remind everyone that the Russia probes were a complete waste of time.
“After 1 year of investigation with Zero evidence being found, Chuck Schumer just stated that ‘Democrats should blame ourselves,not Russia,’ he wrote before asking two hours later, “So why aren’t the Committees and investigators, and of course our beleaguered A.G., looking into Crooked Hillarys crimes & Russia relations?”
Schumer also said he hoped that the Democratic Party’s new slogan, A Better Deal: Better Jobs, Better Wages, Better Future would help the Democrats in 2020 and emphasized that the party’s new message would appeal to Obama voters and to the former Democrats who rejected Clinton and voted for Mr. Trump last year.
But when Hillary formally announces that she will be running again in 2020, whichever message they choose just won’t do!Share
