CNN’s Jake Tapper didn’t use the word “delusional” in a recent dialogue about Hillary Clinton’s penchant for blaming other people for her election losses, but he might as well have.

The CNN host tip-toed right up to the line and argued that Clinton was only fooling herself by blaming everyone but herself for her recent loss.
In a recent conversation with the guests on the roundtable portion of his show, the Lead, Tapper argued that Clinton’s continued  and consistent blaming of others proved that she hadn’t done “enough introspection” on the real reasons for her recent loss. “She doesn’t seem to have done enough introspection… Putin didn’t tell you don’t go to Wisconsin, James Comey didn’t tell you [to] call one-quarter of the country ‘deplorable,'” Tapper argued. One of his guests, Kirsten Powers agreed saying, “It’s just interesting. Never in this equation is Hillary Clinton to blame for anything, and she was after all the candidate. There were outside forces that were affecting the campaign, no question. But there were a lot of things I think related to her candidacy that were problematic.”

Jake Tapper: “President Trump’s opponent in the election, Hillary Clinton, is not going “soft into that good night.” She’s no longer just seen in the woods on occasion, like Bigfoot, she’s actually popping up. She did an interview the other day and there were throughout this interview a whole list of individuals who she clearly holds responsible for the fact that she’s not in the White House…”

Kirsten Powers: “It’s just interesting. Never in this equation is Hillary Clinton to blame for anything, and she was after all the candidate. There were outside forces that were affecting the campaign, no question. But there were a lot of things I think related to her candidacy that were problematic. I don’t think this helps Democrats, frankly, to be looking back at this. I think people want to move on and not seem like sour groups. It makes the audience she was talking to happy, this is women in the world, very liberal women. And I think it makes the base happy, but I don’t think its helpful overall. I’m now getting tweeted at right now, ‘why do you hate Hillary Clinton so much,’ and I don’t hate Hillary Clinton. I’m just saying that I don’t think this is helpful.”

Jake Tapper: “I mean Karen, obviously Putin, Comey, etc. there’s a whole list of reasons why she didn’t win, but she doesn’t seem to have done enough introspection… there doesn’t seem to be a whole lot of introspection, I mean, Putin didn’t tell you don’t go to Wisconsin, James Comey didn’t tell you [to] call one-quarter of the country ‘deplorable.”
