Amy Chozick, a NYT reporter who wrote a book on Hillary Clinton entitled, “Chasing Hillary,” claims The Hildebeast lost the 2016 election because of – wait for it – sexism.
She contends that sexism played a big role in Clinton’s defeat but also encounters it first-hand among Clinton’s campaign staff.
When Chozick zeroes in on Clinton and leaves herself out of it, she can be perceptive, pithy and surprising. On Clinton’s apparent disdain for the electoral process: “If there was a single unifying force behind her candidacy, it was her obvious desire to get the whole thing over with.” On Clinton’s ambition: “Her only clear vision of the presidency seemed to be herself in it.”
I’m no detective, but I think it’s safe to say Hillary’s arrogance and ignorance also cost her the presidency. She believed it was her birthright, and when she lost, she blamed everyone but herself.
“Chasing Hillary” offers some searing moments surrounding election night, as when the Clinton team’s data guru grasps that his Florida models were off (Latino turnout lower than expected, white turnout huge in the Panhandle), then turns to campaign manager Robby Mook and says, they could be wrong everywhere.”
Mook eventually delivers the news of impending defeat to Clinton. “I knew it. I knew this would happen to me,” she answers. “They were never going to let me be president.” (H/T – AOSHQ)
Gee Hillary, who is the “they” here? The illuminati, black helicopters, white people? The only person who never let you be president is you. Stop making excuses for your loss and take responsibility for your poisonous, toxic personality.
The most ungracious loser in the history of American politics is taking her weepy roadshow to Asia. Her first stop, the evil patriarchal country of India.
The moderator asked Clinton why she thinks almost 52 percent of white women voted for Trump, despite knowing about the controversial “Access Hollywood” tape.
“[Democrats] do not do well with white men and we don’t do well with married, white women,” Clinton explained. “And part of that is an identification with the Republican Party, and a sort of ongoing pressure to vote the way that your husband, your boss, your son, whoever, believes you should.”
Gee Hillary, all that salt is bound to give you a heart attack.

Barack Obama reportedly demanded the Clinton campaign to concede the 2016 election; and he had to make the demand three times before Hillary took action.
A new book on the Clinton campaign contains the revelation that Clinton had to be pressured into conceding her loss on election night by President Barack Obama.
“POTUS doesn’t think it’s wise to drag this out,” White House political director David Simas is reported as saying to Robby Mook, Clinton’s campaign manager. The campaign did not concede at that point.
Later, President Obama himself called and told Clinton, “You need to concede.” The president then repeated the demand to Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta shortly thereafter.
Clinton still refused to make a concession speech until the next day, but remember, Hillary is a rational, mild-tempered woman who is fit to lead this country.
Former Vice-President, Senator, and perennial D-student Joe Biden said he regrets not running for president. The Delaware dullard believes he could have won the election… or maybe not.
Former Vice President Joe Biden late Friday night voiced regret about his decision not to run for president, predicting if he had secured the Democratic nomination he could have won against Donald Trump.
“I had planned on running for president and although it would have been a very difficult primary, I think I could have won,” he said. “I don’t know, maybe not. But I thought I could have won.”
Biden explained that he didn’t regret the time he was able to spend with his son Beau Biden, who later died after battling cancer.
“But do I regret not being president? Yes,” Biden said. “I was the best qualified.”
Wow, I thought Biden was stupid before. A three-decade senator and former VP claiming he was more qualified than a woman who married a guy who eventually became president? That’s just lunacy.
