Hillary Clinton confesses she still struggles with her 2016 loss to Trump

 May 26, 2024

It appears that Hillary Clinton is simply never going to recover from her 2016 presidential election loss to former President Donald Trump. 

Over the years, we have seen how Clinton has repeatedly tried to rationalize the loss to herself. Well, she's at it again.

Her latest attempt to do so came during a recent interview with the New York Times

There, she claimed that sexism is to blame for her 2016 loss to Trump - that she lost because she is a woman, and he won because he is a man.


The Times reports, "Mrs. Clinton said she saw her defeat in that election as inextricable from her gender."

The outlet then goes on to quote Clinton's exact words on the subject. She claimed that because she is a woman she is held to a higher standard, which she failed to live up to once the news broke that she had illegally kept classified emails on a private server.

Clinton, referring to when FBI director James Comey opened an investigation into the incident, said, "But once he did that to me, the people, the voters who left me, were women."

She continued, "They left me because they just couldn’t take a risk on me, because as a woman, I’m supposed to be perfect. They were willing to take a risk on Trump — who had a long list of, let’s call them flaws, to illustrate his imperfection — because he was a man, and they could envision a man as president and commander in chief."

Clinton did not provide any support for this claim.

The overall point of the interview was clearly for Clinton to try to stop people from voting for Trump in the upcoming election. In other words, it was essentially a campaign event for Biden.

Clinton, as usual, tried to claim that Trump is a threat to democracy.

"This election is existential. I mean, if we don’t make the right decision in this election in our country, we may never have another actual election. I will put that out there because I believe it," she said.

Clinton added, "And if we no longer have another actual election, we will be governed by a small minority of right-wing forces that are well organized and well funded and are getting exactly what they want in terms of turning the clock back on women."

The rest of the interview was more of the same.
