Dems Aren't Happy Clinton Is Blaming Them For Her Loss

Dems Aren't Happy Clinton Is Blaming Them For Her Loss

On Wednesday, Clinton spoke at Code 2017, a conference hosted by technology business website Recode, where she claimed responsibility for her own shortcomings during the campaign.

Clinton's note was a reference to the sentence fragment Trump tweeted at 12:06 a.m. EDT on Wednesday, which simply read, "Despite the constant negative press covfefe". Had he lost the election, you can bet that he would've been whining about his loss with much more vitriol than Clinton. "Before, it was a way to reach voters, collect fundraising, do things that would help the candidate behind the messaging".

The former Democratic presidential nominee lashed out at the Republican president as she reflected on the 2016 campaign during an appearance at book industry conference in New York City.

Even with nearly 50 reporters devoted to constant attacks on Trump during the entire campaign, she couldn't stop him.

Of course, we're living in the age of Trump where the president - even after winning an election - regularly plays the blame and sympathy game.

"People in covfefe houses shouldn't throw covfefe", she wrote. "If the Democrats are to have a future, they must offer something better, more honest, and more inspiring".

Russia's meddling in the election, the Wikileaks hacks, the coverage of her private email server and even Comey's actions fall in the latter column.

For years, local Democratic groups have complained that Obama poured resources into a political organization, Obama for America (later renamed Organizing for Action) at the expense of building the party.

The "that's not why I lost" part of her comments eventually turned into a discussion into what actually cost her the election, in her estimation. "But it doesn't help the party win races", the aide said. "They were connected to, as we now know, the 1,000 Russian agents who were involved in delivering those messages", she alleged.

The election may be long over, but Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are far from done going toe-to-toe. But it's absurd to suggest that any Democratic candidate who was using the DNC data in 2016 was inheriting nothing, as Secretary Clinton said.

Later, in response to a question from a reporter from the Mashable website, Clinton said social media platforms should play a larger role in monitoring the content on their sites and preventing false information from gaining traction and spreading online.
