It has been months since the election and the media, like the Democratic Party, still has no idea why Hillary lost the election.
Sunday on Meet the Press, members of the panel actually wondered aloud if Hillary lost because America just doesn’t like women, a truly stupid suggestion.

‘Meet the Press’ Debates If Hillary Lost Because of the Country’s ‘Misogyny’
Helene Cooper, The New York Times’s Pentagon correspondent, agreed that sexism had a hand in Clinton’s defeat. “I think many women probably feel that way. And I don’t think I would necessarily dismiss that,” she argued, “I’ve talked to plenty of Trump voters who say they just didn’t like Hillary, including women who said, no, there’s just something — I just didn’t like her. I think there’s something to be said for that.”
“But I think we can’t pretend that this sort of misogyny doesn’t exist. I think it would be naïve,” she continued.
She wasn’t the only panelist who bought into Clinton’s assertions. David Brooks, another New York Times columnists (surprise, surprise), was in full agreement as well. “Gender politics clearly played a role in this election,” he opined before slamming Trump with a smirk:
Donald Trump is a cliché of old-fashioned masculinity and a lot of people long for that kind of masculinity which is never coming back, but they long for it. And so, to say that his hyper-macho stereotype is not part of why he got elected, I mean, it wasn’t his knowledge.
