In a new interview with CBS, Clinton did not run out of excuses for her electoral collapse.
In a new interview with CBS News’ “Sunday Morning,” failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton blamed her 2016 election loss on sexism and FBI investigations run by Jim Comey.
Clinton first attributed her loss to “sexism and misogyny” that was active in the United States.
“I started the campaign knowing that I would have to work extra hard to make women and men feel comfortable with the idea of a woman president. It doesn’t fit into the stereotypes we carry around in our head,” she said. “A lot of the sexism and misogyny was in service of these attitudes.”
“We really don’t want a woman commander-in-chief,” Clinton said, describing Americans’ attitudes.
Clinton moved on to blaming former FBI Director James Comey for burying her chances:
Clinton first took issue with Comey’s July 2016 press conference, where he criticized the former secretary of state for her irresponsible handling of classified emails.
But Clinton seemed more upset with Comey’s October re-opening of the email investigation, saying it “stopped my momentum.” Clinton said that the FBI director did not reveal there was an open investigation into the Trump campaign at the same time.
Nowhere in her interview did Clinton mention her failure to campaign in the swing states of Michigan and Wisconsin.
