Staffers of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s doomed presidential campaign share a “sense of colossal failure” according to an interview published Thursday.

“Before I went to see Clinton, I spoke with some of her top advisors in the campaign,” New Yorker reporter David Remnick wrote about the interview.

“Some still work with her; others stay in close touch, commiserating, exchanging links to stories about Trump-related outrages or malfeasances.”

The author then offered that many of the former staffers feel a strong sense of failure after the stunning loss to President Donald Trump last November.

“They share a sense of Colossal failure-of having failed Clinton, and, more of having failed the country. They know that she, too, carries a sense of both victimhood and guilt,” Remnick concluded.

Trump won the electoral college after he gained narrow majorities in Florida, Pennsylvania, and Michigan. Clinton still ended up winning the popular vote, forcing many on the left to call for an end to the electoral college, including Clinton.

“I think it needs to be eliminated, Clinton in an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper. “I’d like to see us move beyond it, yes.”

Clinton’s new book, “What Happened” is available now on Amazon.
