What’s this? After months of ridicule, made up collusions, accusations, riots, protests, and marches, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer thinks that it’s about time Hillary Clinton and Democrats take responsibility for the outcome of the election.
Hillary Clinton did not lose because of sexism or Russia, although she’d like you to believe so.
Schumer said, “When you lose to somebody who has a 40 percent popularity, you don’t blame other things — Comey, Russia — you blame yourself,” he continued, “So what did we do wrong? People didn’t know what we stood for, just that we were against Trump. And still believe that.”
Fox News reports:
Schumer, D-N.Y., was referring to comments Clinton has made tying her November election loss to multiple factors — including former FBI Director James Comey’s decision to re-open the investigation into her private email server as well as the email hack of her campaign chairman’s account.
The president echoed Schumer’s comments on Twitter early Monday, using them to suggest the probes of Russian meddling in the election and possible coordination with his associates are going nowhere.
Trump tweeted, “After 1 year of investigation with Zero evidence being found, Chuck Schumer just stated that ‘Democrats should blame ourselves, not Russia.”

This all stems from Clinton’s lack of ability to accept responsibility. Which is extremely ironic because in May, she stated that she would take “absolute personal responsibility” former loss. We see how that went!
She even tried to blame WikiLeaks for exposing her. She said, “I was on the way to winning until a combination of Jim Comey’s letter on October 28 and Russian WikiLeaks raised doubts in the minds of people who were inclined to vote for me but were scared off.”
She also added, “If the election were on October 27, I’d be your president.”
Yeah, and if the Super Bowl only had three quarters then the Falcons would have won last year.
