Did I know that prior to November eighth, it was thought Hillary Clinton was our next president and to most of the media, the Democrat party and the general public, the election was merely a formality? Yes, but, if the election was “in the bag,” why did Mrs. Clinton lose? Sen. Clinton’s loss was due to racists or “angry white men,” right? (https://www.onenewsnow.com/politics-govt/2016/12/20/bill-insists-comey-angry-white-men-made-hillary-lose) Or maybe, it was FBI director Comey’s investigation into her email scandal. Yeah, that must be it. (http://www.nytimes.com/2016/11/13/us/politics/hillary-clinton-james-comey.html?_r=) No? How about her longtime assistant, Huma Abedin. (http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2016/12/19/clinton-advisers-point-fingers-at-huma-abedin-inner-circle-for-loss.html) You don’t know? Then it had to be fake news that cost Sec. Clinton the presidency. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iBDedvplyTQ) No, again? Was it millennials who voted for third-party candidates? (https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2016/12/02/yes-you-can-blame-millennials-for-hillary-clintons-loss/?utm_term=.49b8ac024be5) I know! Mrs.Clinton lost because the Russian government hacked the election! (http://www.politico.com/story/2016/12/clinton-loss-russia-hacking-response-232739) What do you mean, no way? Okay, then it was traitorous, white women who betrayed their gender and voted for Donald Trump. (http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/columnists/glanton/ct-white-women-glanton-20161118-column.html) Yes, that must be it or maybe it was voter suppression that caused Secretary Clinton to lose the election. (https://thinkprogress.org/2016-a-case-study-in-voter-suppression-258b5f90ddcd#.mw4nwnppj) Make up my mind?! You’re the one– It must have been the Electoral College that cost Mrs. Clinton the presidency, right?(http://townhall.com/tipsheet/mattvespa/2016/12/27/nyt-its-time-to-abolish-the-electoral-college-n2261977)
Oh, she lost because she ran a bad campaign. You’re right. Sen. Hillary Clinton lost the presidency because she resorted to ad hominem attacks, when she was discussing her message she didn’t mention anything new, she didn’t campaign in traditionally democrat states, she didn’t campaign for all of August and she apparently mismanaged her campaign finances. (http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2016/dec/14/hillary-clinton-lost-white-house-because-these-fiv/) That’s not all? Yeah, I forgot about her inability to gain the trust of the electorate, that her speeches weren’t inspiring, the FBI investigations into not just the emails but, the Clinton Foundation as well and her promise to appoint liberal justices to the Supreme Court. (http://www.newsmax.com/TheWire/reasons-hillary-lost-president/2016/11/10/id/758175/) Wow! It’s no wonder Sec. Clinton lost the presidency.
