It seems that Hillary Clinton’s never-ending litany of excuses with regard to her losing the 2016 election cycle in Donald Trump’s favor made even her fellow Democrats to say “enough is enough” and to ask her to step out of the spotlight.
Hillary Clinton blaming the DNC (among others, like the Russians and those crafty Macedonian hackers) for her election epic failure seems to hurt the image of the Democratic Party. At least that’s the consensus among DEM strategists and former Clinton campaign aids, as per a report from the Hill.
A former Hillary Clinton aide was quoted as saying:
“She’s apparently still really, really angry. I mean, we all are. The election was stolen from her, and that’s how she feels,”
Then the unnamed (as in anonymous) aide added:
“But to go out there publicly again and again and talk about it? And then blame the DNC? It’s not helpful to Democrats. It’s not helpful to the country, and I don’t think it’s helpful to her,”
However, (most probably the word Arkancide has no meaning anymore) a former DNC official was way more blunt with regard to Hillary blaming the DNC for her election loss. The ex DNC Data Director Andrew Therriault described her accusations against the Democratic National Committee as “fucking bullshit”. Those were his exact words.
Besides the DNC, Hillary has also blamed James Comey, FBI’s former director, the mainstream media (!!), the Russians (obviously) and even her election opponents (like doh!) including patriarchy disguised as sexism for her loss. A number of DEM strategists and aides are now asking Hillary Clinton to “sit down and shut up”, as in, let me quote (former Obama aide):
“If she is trying to come across as the leader of the angry movement of what happened in 2016, then she’s achieving it. But part of the problem she had was she didn’t have a vision for the Democratic Party, and she needs to now take a break and let others come to the forefront.”
Let’s remember how she was handed the nomination on a gold platter, had the entire media working for her 24/7 365 like Joseph Goebbels propaganda machine, and she still lost.
