The former Democratic presidential nominee and USA first lady lashed out at the Republican president as she reflected on the 2016 election campaign during an appearance at a book industry conference in New York City on Thursday.
Clinton also said the intelligence community "concluded with high confidence that the Russians ran an extensive information war campaign against my campaign, to influence voters in the election". She blames the New York Times for covering her email scandal like Pearl Harbor - but here's the catch, they endorsed her for president!
"I take responsibility for every decision I made but that is not why I lost.""It was bankrupt, it was on the verge of insolvency, and its data was mediocre to poor, non-existent, wrong".
"The first time you saw the tech revolution really weaponized politically... you had Citizens United come to its full fruition", she said.
"I'm leaning Trump", she said.
Clinton did not even campaign in Wisconsin whereas Trump zeroed in on that state as well as others that had experienced a chronic loss of manufacturing jobs. Had he lost the election, you can bet that he would've been whining about his loss with much more vitriol than Clinton.
"I inherited nothing from the Democratic Party". "And therefore I'm going to keep writing and keep talking and keep supporting people who are on the front lines of the resistance". But, she added, "That's not why I lost". "I got paid for the speeches I made", she said.
He was referring to Clinton's assertions during her talk that fake news about her was spread on Facebook, and that the Democratic Party, unlike the well-funded Republicans, did not have a sophisticated data system.
As Therriault points out, Hillary's party didn't tell her to take the Midwest for granted, either.
She was asked what people thought about her at the time for her assertion that there was any such conspiracy. I have no doubt that the stories we've read about how she mistreats people are true. They weren't behind the coughing fits, the weeks she went home to rest, or the weird coke-bottle shades.
Trump has repeatedly denounced any accusations of Russian interference in the election to help him become president.
