Hillary Clinton is still bitter over her epic loss to President Trump two years ago and she has not let it go. For the good of the country, Hillary, let it go and slink off into the sunset.
But she will not. Instead, she is blaming Fox News for her epic failure.
“One of the ways you do that is by consistently attacking the press,” Hillary said. “Now [Mr. Trump] doesn’t attack Fox News, because they’re like a wholly owned subsidiary of Trump and the Republican party now. So he attacks the press and the broadcast media that raise questions about him, that don’t give him fidelity and loyalty.”
“You watch Fox News, it’s always, ‘Something terrible is about to happen,’ ‘Something terrible did happen,’ ‘These people are doing all these awful things.’ It is totally divorced from reality, but it is superb propaganda,” she added.
“I don’t know the best way to puncture that. You have to hope that reality catches up with politics and entertainment at some point.”
“I believe that where we are now in the political cycle is that the press does not know how to cover these candidates who are setting themselves on fire every day, who are masters of diversion and distraction,” she said.
“So at some point, the press has to get smarter because that’s basically how most voters get their information,” she added.
“If you’re into both-side-ism — so, you know, on the one hand this, and on the other hand that — really there’s no factual basis, there’s no evidence, there’s no record. Everybody lies, everybody gilds the lily. It doesn’t really matter. That just opens a door to somebody like him.”
Now Hillary is aghast that politicians lie? After she backtracked on TPP in such blatant fashion and after her husband redefined the word is? She is an embarrassment. Plus she just admitted finally what a terrible candidate she was – she couldn’t inspire the media to cover her or people to vote for her because she is a phoy, the worst kind of political hack and America is not dumb.
Earlier Hillary stunned the world and hinted at another run for the brass ring by backtracking on immigration.
From The Hill: Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is calling on European leaders to enact stricter immigration policies in order to counter the growing threat of right-wing populism on the continent.
“I think Europe needs to get a handle on migration because that is what lit the flame,” Clinton told The Guardian in an interview published Thursday, referring to the rise of anti-immigrant politicians across Europe.
“I admire the very generous and compassionate approaches that were taken particularly by leaders like [German Chancellor] Angela Merkel,” she said, “but I think it is fair to say Europe has done its part, and must send a very clear message — ‘we are not going to be able to continue provide refuge and support’ — because if we don’t deal with the migration issue it will continue to roil the body politic.”
Clinton’s comments are likely to prove divisive in Europe, where an influx of refugees over the past several years has led to an increasingly polarized political climate, growing fear of terrorism and the emergence of numerous insurgent populist parties.
