Attacks on President Donald Trump are commonplace — many depict him as this wildly bizarre, classless person occupying the Oval Office — but have critics fairly considered what a horror show a Hillary Clinton presidency would have been?
Why is this relevant, you ask? Well, because the liberal media are permanently afflicted with Trump derangement syndrome and won’t quit feeding Clinton’s narcissistic obsession with her defeat. Did the media fixate on Mitt Romney’s defeat to Barack Obama and forever question him about it?
Clinton has been muttering about her loss since she recovered from the initial election-night shock, and it has been ugly. In early April — and probably earlier — she attributed her loss, in part, to misogyny. “It is fair to say … certainly, misogyny played a role,” she lamented at the Women in the World Summit in New York. “I mean, that just has to be admitted. … Some people, women included, had real problems” with “the first woman president.”
In early May, Clinton said she takes “personal responsibility” but then quickly contradicted herself by shifting blame to Russian interference in the election and then-FBI Director James Comey’s release of a letter concerning the investigation into her emails.
Late in May, Clinton resurfaced at the Code Conference, denying she or her organization made any significant mistakes in the campaign and blaming many others and other factors for her loss. She said the Russian government orchestrated a vast disinformation campaign to discredit her, and she also blamed WikiLeaks’ release of campaign chairman John Podesta’s emails and speculated that Trump had colluded with Russians to disseminate this information. She lambasted the media for covering her email chicanery as if it were Pearl Harbor, calling it “the biggest nothingburger ever.” And for good measure, she further blamed sexism, saying that criticism of her six-figure speeches to various groups was gender-driven.
