It’s nearly impossible to keep track of all the people and things Hillary has blamed for her loss in the 2016 election. Her new book has already blamed Bernie, Obama, Joe Biden, sexism, and racism.
Now we learn that she also blames the Electoral College.
While Clinton in the past has openly taken responsibility for the failures of her campaign, she has also repeatedly lashed out those she saw as detractors, from former FBI director James Comey to the media to the Russian foreign influence campaign — a theme seemingly echoed in her new book.
“I go back over my own shortcomings and the mistakes we made,” Clinton writes, according to early excerpts of the book. “I take responsibility for all of them.”
But, she adds, “I wasn’t just running against Donald Trump. I was up against the Russian intelligence apparatus, a misguided FBI director, and now the godforsaken Electoral College.”
In the memoir, Clinton also takes jabs at former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders, her Democratic primary opponent, both of whom she faulted for causing “lasting damage” to her campaign.
If Hillary Clinton really wants to know why she lost, all she needs to do is look into a mirror.
It’s her fault and no one else’s.
