Hillary Clinton still hasn’t realized she’s at fault for her own presidential loss and, unsurprisingly, continues to point the finger at other people.
Most recently, the Clintons have begun to point the finger at the Obamas—specifically, for mishandling the Russian interference situation.
Check it out (via Axos):
Clintonites feel that if Obama had come out early and forcefully with evidence of Russian interference in the campaign, and perhaps quicker sanctions, she might be president today. His caution, they argue, allowed the public to have a foggy sense of clear, calculated, consistent Russian meddling in the campaign. We can’t stress enough how upset some Democrats are. It’s testing relationships between Clinton and Obama loyalists. It’s making efforts to form a new Trump opposition coalition harder.
And the former White House, at this point, is pretty much shrugging it off.
“The White House was like everyone else: They thought she’d win anyway… If he had done more, it might have lessened a lot of aggrieved feelings, although I don’t think it would have altered the outcome. The Russia thing was like a spy novel, and anything he had said or done would have helped get people to believe it was real.”
President Obama even went so far as to acknowledge this thought during his final press conference. He said:
“I know that there [have] been folks out there who suggested that somehow if we went out there and made big announcements and thumped our chests about a bunch of stuff, that somehow that would potentially spook the Russians … [T]he idea that somehow public shaming is going to be effective, I think doesn’t read the thought process in Russia very well.”
Of course, this won’t likely change much for the Clintons.
It’s pretty clear by now that not even a federal investigation could convince HRC to admit her own wrongdoing.
