I seem to remember that Bill Clinton was able to deftly navigate hairpin turns like the one you’re about to see. His wife cannot, which is just one of the many, many reasons she lost. Twice. It’s only fitting that she’s now harnessing that complete lack of political ability toward explaining the reasons she failed so spectacularly.
Here’s Hillary “WHY AREN’T I FIFTY POINTS AHEAD?” Clinton at something called Women for Women International yesterday, making excuses for her humiliating loss on Nov. 8. Whine away, Grandma!
Clinton takes "personal responsibility" for her loss, says "but I was on the way to winning" before Comey letter and Wikileaks interference. pic.twitter.com/6FLng4zDIF

“I take absolute personal responsibility. I was the candidate. I was the person who was on the ballot… But I was on the way to winning until the combination of Jim Comey’s letter on October 28 and Russia WikiLeaks raised doubts in the minds of people who were inclined to vote for me but got scared off.”
Did you get all that? She takes absolute personal responsibility… except for all that stuff other people did, which wasn’t her fault because hey look over there.
I hate to admit that Sonny Bunch at the Washington Free Beacon might be right about something, but I think he nailed this one:
She has convinced herself that she lost because of a fluke of Russia/Comey and should have won and deserved to win.
She’s running. https://t.co/wDLQlqZuoH

Right? Why else would she be out there making excuses and stoking conspiracy theories and trying to convince people she’s still a viable political candidate? She hasn’t had enough yet. She doesn’t know when she’s beaten. She wants a rematch.
Congratulations, two-term President Trump!
