If there is one thing that we learned from the 2016 election, it is that Hillary Clinton is nothing more than a bag of wind with a bad attitude and an addiction to power.
The former first lady, who also had a scandal-ridden stint as the head of the State Department, was thoroughly shellacked by Donald Trump in the electoral college at the close of the general election of 2016. It was downright embarrassing for the corrupt career politician, who proceeded to drunkenly assault campaign manager John Podesta and refuse to concede for nearly an entire day after the results were determined.
You see, Hillary had been running a campaign based almost solely on her own ego and air of inevitability. She was so convinced that she would hand Donald Trump his own derriere, leaked documents show that she was actively hoping to influence news organizations to take him seriously during the primary so that he would be her general election opponent.
So it comes as no surprise that Clinton has refused to take responsibility for her own mismanaged campaign and all of the baggage that she has now accumulated thanks to Wikileaks. To this day, Clinton is throwing blame in every corner of American, and Russian, politics, still dumbfounded by her own incompetence.
“’Within one hour [of Trump’s Access Hollywood tape scandal], the Russians, Wikileaks, same thing, dumped the John Podesta emails,’ said Hillary, before claiming that the Podesta emails were ‘anodyne to boredom,’ while simultaneously asserting that they swung the entire election (pick one Hillary because you can’t have both).
“’Within one hour they dumped them and they began to weaponize them, and they began to have some of their allies within the Internet world like Infowars take out pieces and begin to say the most outlandish, outrageous, absurd lies you can imagine,’ she added.
“’He dumps that on me on October 28th and I immediately start falling,’ said Hillary in reference to the Comey memo (which she also claims was motivated by the Russians.)
“Hillary also blamed ‘Trump people’ screaming ‘lock her up, lock her up’ as a reason for her defeat as well as Google searches being predominantly for Wikileaks in the final days of the campaign.”
These statements sound more like the inane rants of a 5th grader losing at kickball than they do a potential leader of the free world.
Clinton’s blatant inability to comprehend her own incompetence is an astounding feat of mental gymnastics. Perhaps she’s always been an incredibly gifted fact manipulator – perhaps she picked up a few tips from her husband – either way, it’s downright incredible how little the facts actually matter to the former Secretary of State.
Sure, Wikileaks certainly affected the Clinton campaign, but not through a wide array of false information leaking to the press. What Wikileaks provided the American people was a tiny glimpse into the inner working of Clinton’s corrupt and incorrigible circle. From there, voters took matters into their own hands.
Remember, Hillary, if you don’t do anything wrong, you can’t get caught.
