At the eighth-annual Women of the World Summit in New York, Hillary sat down for her first interview since her humiliating loss in November with Nicholas Kristof of The New York Times. She listed “lots of contributing factors” (her words) as to why she lost, which was essentially just a laundry list of liberal conspiracy theories.
First, there was the liberal Left’s favorite excuse: Russia.
“A foreign power meddled with our election,” she explained. She added: “I think what Putin wanted to do was sow distrust and confusion, as well as influence our election.”
Then came Old Reliable: sexism.
“Certainly misogyny played a role,” Clinton told Kristof. “That just has to be admitted.”
She added that Putin, who she thinks rigged the election, is also sexist: “He’s not exactly fond of strong women.”
But Hillary’s two biggest excuses for her loss? FBI Director James Comey’s letter, announcing the reopening of her email investigation, and the leaks of staff emails and DNC emails by WikiLeaks.
“I think it is fair to say that the outside intervention, the combination of the Comey letter on Oct. 28th, WikiLeaks which played a much bigger role than I think many people understand yet, had the determinative effect,” she said.
“I didn’t fully understand how impactful [Comey’s letter] was and so it created doubts in people,” Clinton said. Coming just 10 days before the election, [it] really raised questions in a lot of people.”
But, despite her loss, Hillary Clinton is doing a-okay!
“I’m okay, as a person,” she said. “As an American, I’m pretty worried” about Trump.
