Kirsten Powers criticized Hillary Clinton on CNN Thursday for declining to take responsibility for losing the election.
During a recent “Women in the World” event, Clinton said Russian hacking, misogyny, Bernie Sanders, the media, and a slew of other factors caused her to lose the election, which the CNN pundit referred to as a “sour grapes” blame game.
“It’s just interesting,” Powers said of the former secretary of state. “Never in this equation is Hillary Clinton to blame for anything, and she was, after all, the candidate.”
“There were a lot of things related to her candidacy that were problematic.”
Powers ventured that Clinton’s “sour grapes” attitude about the loss is harmful to the Democratic Party.
“I don’t think this helps Democrats, frankly, to be looking back at this,” she stated. “I think people want to move on and not seem like sour grapes.”
“I’m now getting tweeted at right now, like, ‘Why do you hate Hillary Clinton so much?'” she joked. “I don’t hate Hillary Clinton, I’m just saying I don’t think this is helpful.”
