In a CNN interview Sunday, Rep. Marsha Blackburn had a fiery take on Hillary Clinton’s refusal to move on from her 2016 electoral defeat.

Host Jake Tapper asked Blackburn if it made her “happy” to see Clinton continue to blame FBI Director James Comey and Wikileaks for her loss, but Blackburn had a much classier answer in mind.

“I think as a woman who is in elective office, it is disappointing to me,” she said. “She has the opportunity to role model graciousness but she is choosing to live and stew in bitterness and to blame somebody else.”


“Throughout my career I’ve seen over and over again, eventually you say, ‘This didn’t work,’ or ‘I didn’t win,’ or ‘I’m sorry,’ and you move on,” Blackburn continued to the nods of other panelists.

“She is missing a great opportunity by not doing that.”
