Odds are that Hillary Clinton will never get over the 2016 election. She gave a speech at Yale this weekend and admitted this by saing “I’m not over it.”

‘No, I’m not over it’: Hillary Clinton jabs Trump, shows off Russian hat at Yale Class Day
Early in her address to graduating Yale students at Sunday’s Class Day, Hillary Clinton reached behind the lectern, pulled out a traditional Russian ushanka hat, and held it aloft.
“I mean, if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em.” she said as the audience laughed and applauded.
The Russian hat gag, a nod to the student tradition of wearing extravagant headgear during Class Day, set the tone for a wide-ranging speech in which Clinton alternately cracked jokes about her loss to Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election and warned Yale’s Class of 2018 that “we are living through a full-fledged crisis in our democracy.”
“There are certain things that are so essential they should transcend politics,” said Clinton, who never mentioned Trump by name during her address. “Waging a war on the rule of law and a free press, de-legitimizing elections, perpetrating shameless corruption, and rejecting the idea that our leaders should be public servants undermines our national unity.”
Clinton admitted that she still thinks about her defeat by Trump: “No, I’m not over it. I still think about the 2016 election. I still regret the mistakes I made. I still think, though, that understanding what happened in such a weird and wild election in American history will help us defend our democracy in the future.”
