OF COURSE: Hillary Campaign Chair John Podesta Still In Denial Over 2016 Election Loss

Hillary’s campaign chair John Podesta still can’t face the facts about the 2016 election. This makes him no different than most Democrats right now. They all seem to be having the same problem.

The Washington Examiner reported:

John Podesta can’t bring himself to blame the Clinton campaign for her loss

Six months after he dismissed the crowd at Hillary Clinton’s ill-fated victory party, John Podesta does not know if the campaign he chaired could have defeated Donald Trump.

In a wide-ranging interview with Politico published Monday, Podesta seemed uncertain that the campaign could have managed to pull off a win at all.

“We bear responsibility, and it’s a great burden and I feel it every day,” he admitted. But that general concession is where Podesta’s willingness to accept blame stopped.

“We had a lead, and that lead really substantially narrowed after Comey’s letter, and the last week of coverage, which was all about if nothing else, is this thing going to ever end?” Podesta explained, blaming former FBI director James Comey and the media for Clinton’s loss.

But, like many observers, the former lobbyist admits Clinton should have poured more efforts into Wisconsin. “My own personal view is we probably should have done more in Wisconsin; we didn’t advertise there until the very end,” Podesta said. “But you know, at the end of the day, we lost Pennsylvania anyway, and we had thrown everything we could at Pennsylvania.”

The 2016 election will go down in history as one of the greatest political upsets ever.

Democrats will be stunned by it for decades.
