Posted on 05/26/2017 7:01:00 PM PDT by markomalley
Hillary Clintons list of excuses for why she lost the election keeps getting longer.
The former secretary of state has offered up a litany of scapegoats not named Hillary Clinton for her loss. She has already blamed her loss on misogyny, former FBI Director James Comey and WikiLeaks. Her aides have blamed white supremacy and the media. Now, Clinton is adding to the list.
Clinton blamed alleged voter suppression for her loss during an interview with New York magazine published on Friday. Clinton, citing no evidence to support her claims, said that the alleged voter suppression was especially bad in Wisconsin, where low turnout hurt her campaign.
Left unmentioned, however, is the fact that Clinton virtually ignored Wisconsin during the general election. Clinton didnt set foot in Wisconsin once during her general election campaign, and ran almost no campaign ads until shortly before the election.
Clinton claimed that what I was doing was working. I would have won had I not been subjected to the unprecedented attacks by Comey and the Russians, aided and abetted by the suppression of the vote, particularly in Wisconsin.
While searching for explanations after the election, some progressives seized on voter suppression in the form of voter ID laws as a reason Trump won. Even liberal news sources are having a tough time buying that line of reasoning, however. Reliably liberal fact-checker Snopes ruled the claim unproven because there was no evidence to support it, while liberal website Vox flat out rejected it.
Clintons blaming of voter suppression doesnt appear to be an off-the-cuff remark.
The largest pro-Clinton super PAC during the 2016 election, Priorities USA, produced an analysis of voter turnout that claimed voter suppression had a significant impact on the electoral outcome.
She has never won a presidential campaign since New Coke. Yup, New Coke is to blame.
It’s not Trumps fault your ugly face suppressed turnout!
It’s Bush’s fault (for losing the primary election).
That suppression in in Detroit was too much
You ignored fly over land Hillary.
That was stupid, on your part.
Oh, and nobody likes you.
I have another reason. She’s a loser.
How was the vote suppressed?
Were people tackled and thrown to the ground when they approached their voting places?
Hillary has truly lost her mind.
Her candidacy did more to suppress voter turnout for her than anything Trump could have concocted.
Trying out a new excuse to see if this one sticks
Didnt Trump set up a committee to look at voter fraud. Be careful what you wish for.
Actually, I think that had she campaigned harder, and visited all of those places she didn't bother with, her vote total would have been even lower. There was no enthusiasm at her rallies. They were barely any better than Jeb Bush's in terms of turn out and enthusiasm. Plus, the more people who would have seen her, the less support she would have had.
Has she tried to explain why we hate Webb Hubbles daughter yet?
So, Comey is back under the bus again? Wisconsin vote is a ruse.
Dont forget the blame on uber, starbucks and all iphone iterations. :)
Conservatives spread the wealth
Liberals spread the blame
I am guessing that the Hildebeast will be blaming “climate change” for her loss in the near future.
Likely the next excuse will be "it's the Joooos"
She was so sure she would beat Trump that she wanted him as her opponent.
How many of her supporters voted for Trump in the primaries?
They all knew the DNC super delegates would automatically give her the nomination.
Only to be beat by Trump, the guy she knew she would beat.
Every time I think of that I wanna laugh my fool @$$ off.
