Hillary Clinton Now Re-Litigating Both 2016 General and 2008 Primary

Unsatisfied with complaining only about her loss in the 2016 election, Clinton went all the way back to her loss to President Obama in 2008.

Failed presidential candidate and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton re-hashed the results of both the 2016 presidential general election and the 2008 Democratic primary at CODECON on Wednesday.

First, discussing the 2016 election, Clinton reminded audience members, “I won three million more votes than the other guy did.” However, she lost the electoral college, which decides who wins the presidency, to President Trump.

Clinton then, without any prodding, brought up the 2008 primary contest with President Obama.

“I had a very, very close contest with President Obama. Basically our votes were neck-and-neck,” she began.

“He ended up with more delegates and you know, depending on how you count it, I was slightly ahead, slightly behind,” she said, implying that she may have beaten Obama in primary votes.

Clinton technically beat Obama in the popular vote of the 2008 primary, but in large part because the future president took his name off of the ballot in Michigan following a DNC rules violation by the Michigan Democratic Party. Not counting Michigan, Obama beat Clinton by about 150,000 votes.

She then implied that both Obama and Trump beat her because of “misogyny” and that Obama only won because “he’s a very attractive, good-looking man.”
