Hillary Clinton’s new book casts around lots of blame for her 2016 loss. The list of people she blames just keeps getting longer. The latest revelation is that Joe Biden was part of the problem.
Clinton has made a handful of public appearances since the election, and has said that she takes responsibility for her defeat, while still spreading blame widely on former FBI Director James Comey, Russian President Vladimir Putin, and her rival for the Democratic ticket, Sen. Bernie Sanders.
In the book, she also dings former Vice President Joe Biden, saying he’s thrown unfair criticism her way.
“Joe Biden said the Democratic Party in 2016 ‘did not talk about what it always stood for — and that was how to maintain a burgeoning middle class,'” Clinton writes, according to CNN. “I find this fairly remarkable, considering that Joe himself campaigned for me all over the Midwest and talked plenty about the middle class.”
The one person Hillary Clinton never seems to blame for her loss is herself. She thought she had the whole thing locked up. The media repeated this on a daily basis and she seemed to believe it. As a result, she skipped campaigning in key states and it cost her. Big time.
