The Hillary Clinton Excuse Parade Continues, Wait Until You See Newest Excuses

(The views and opinions expressed in this article are those of the authors and do not reflect the views of Citizen Truth.)

And she can’t stop. And she won’t stop.

These should be the lyrics to a new Hillary Clinton tune as the former first lady and former Secretary of State cannot stop reliving the 2016 presidential election in which she suffered a stunning defeat.

The 2016 also-ran was visiting Auckland, New Zealand on Monday when she, again, attacked President Donald Trump, this time calling him a “reality TV” candidate, and, again, gave her excuse parade for why she was defeated in her bid to become the first woman President of the United States.

“The forces at work in the 2016 election in the United States are still with us and not only in my country but around the world,” she said, The New Zealand Herald reported. “It was a perfect storm: deep currents of anger and resentment flowing through our culture. Our political press that told voters my emails were the most important story. The unprecedented intervention in our election by the FBI director. The information warfare waged from within the Kremlin.”

“We’re having a very important struggle in the United States right now,” Clinton said. “It’s difficult to fully grasp because there are 20 stories and people are getting overwhelmed by the strange goings on we are living through.”

Incorrect. We are not struggling in America. You are struggling to accept the results of the election, which is something you chided President Trump about before he won, when you thought you were going to win.

“You know, in the past, I felt like I had to be, kind of careful in public, sort of keep my guard up. Well those days are over, and I am so pleased that I can pull the curtain back in the book on the unprecedented election – the first reality TV election in American history,” she said.

Clinton also blamed sexism, as she has in the past, for her defeat. “The more professionally successful we are, the less people like us,” she said.

And she blamed both herself and the media for not fighting against President Trump properly during the campaign, as if the media was supposed to help her win.

“Part of our problem was this unprecedented reality TV campaign, and he being the first reality TV candidate in our history,” she told Stuff. “The media didn’t know how to cover him. It was like they were watching a car wreck or a train wreck all the time.”

“And his insults and his scapegoating and his horrible comments about people with disabilities and Latin Americans and immigrations and everybody – it was just so hard to understand,” Clinton said. “So the press didn’t do the job it should have. I didn’t do the job I should have. I think people were almost mesmerized by this display.”

The truth is, even as a Republican and a supporter of President Trump, you kind of feel sad for her. She comes off as someone who is in a mental battle with herself. Someone who cannot accept her reality and who, as she explains the election to others, is struggling to explain it to herself.

She was the heir apparent to former President Obama, anointed long before the Democrat primary. She was supposed to be the president and it was believed that no one could stop her. And she lived in that reality for the entirety of President Obama’s time in office. But something happened on the way to her coronation. She ran head on into a man who did not fear her, and he brought the fight to her. It was something she was not prepared for and it ended in her defeat.

    Sexism! Russians! Those damn emails! Never in the history of the United States has any failed presidential nominee whined so much about losing while failing to admit that they were in fact the problem. Hillary Clinton was probably the one person in the world who could lose to Donald J. Trump. Hillary Clinton is even less trustworthy than the Donald. She is fake. She is phony. She was not right for the times. Many Americans are struggling and that is one yuuuuuuge reason why Donald won in 2016. White working class Americans, seeing a country where black, Hispanic, and LGBT issues are elevated above all else and where illegal immigrants are prioritized over US citizens in sanctuary states like California and other sanctuary cities across America, wanted something different. Well, they got it. America did not want another 8 years of mediocre economic growth as we experienced under Obama’s reign. They wanted an America First president who would put Americans first in both domestic and foreign policy. The tax cuts that lowered the tax bill to Uncle Sam for 80% of Americans and pro-business deregulation in DC are just two of the significant achievements the Trump administration has made so far in Making America Great Again.
