Remember when it was scandalous for Trump to hint that maybe, under some circumstances, he would consider the election to have been rigged?
Compare that with Mother Jones’ treatment of Hillary Clinton, who DID rig the primary election…and who is now playing the victim over a general election supposedly being rigged.
In an interview which ran in the uber-left web magazine today, Clinton says that she questions the legitimacy of her 2016 loss, throwing in her new catch-phrase “I would have won” at every opportunity.
Madam Secretary also fires off a few rounds at Trump. She is spiteful toward the President for his nonchalant and funny reactions to the sex scandals now rocking the Democrats.
And of course, Al Franken-stein’s new nickname.
A few quotes from the interview, as printed in Breitbart:
Interviewer Ari Berman asked, “So between the Republican voter suppression you talked about and Russian interference, do you think it was a legitimate election?”
Hillary said, “I think that there are lots of questions about its legitimacy, and we don’t have a method for contesting that in our system. That’s why I’ve long advocated for an independent commission to get to the bottom of what happened. Because, look, this is the first time we’ve ever been attacked by a foreign adversary, and then they suffer no real consequences. And so, I’m worried that we’re not learning all the lessons, it’s one of the reasons why I wrote the book. Because I wanted people at least to understand what I saw as the factors, including shortcomings of myself and my campaign. But the forces at work outside my campaign are not going away. Somebody else is going to be running for Congress, or governor, or eventually president. We’ve got to know how to protect ourselves.”
Interviewer Berman followed up, “So you have a lot of questions about the legitimacy of the election?”
Hillary answered, “I do, sure. Because I think, as we learn more about it, we know that the web of connections between people on Trump’s team and Russian representatives just gets more and more dense.”
After Hillary’s recent book tour, one sober and wise liberal wrote that her understanding of Russia’s mindset toward the United States has regressed to a “Rocky and Bullwinkle” level.
