Jake Tapper: James Comey Didn’t Tell Hillary Clinton to Call a Quarter of America ‘Deplorables’

CNN host Jake Tapper slammed 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton Thursday, pointing out that neither Vladimir Putin nor James Comey forced her to commit critical campaign mistakes.

“Obviously, Putin, Comey, etcetera,” Tapper said. “There’s a whole list of reasons why she didn’t win, but she doesn’t seem to have done enough introspection.”

“Putin didn’t tell you, ‘don’t go to Wisconsin.’ James Comey didn’t tell you, ‘call one-quarter of the country deplorable,'” Tapper said of Clinton’s attitude toward the election.

CNN political commentator Kristen Powers added that Clinton’s refusal to recognize her own mistakes did not help Democrats.
