Today in "Hillary Clinton Embarrasses Herself," she's now comparing her loss to 9/11. Yes, she is comparing the people of the United States of America electing someone other than herself to be their president to the largest terrorist attack ever to take place on those same United States. While speaking in London on Sunday, she said that the Russian interference in the election was an attack of similar magnitude (for scale, 9/11 took the lives of nearly 3,000 innocent people).
She says that in using that metaphor, she is quoting unnamed security experts:
“We had really well-respected security, intelligence veterans saying this was a ‘cyber 9/11’ in the sense it was a direct attack on our institutions. That may sound dramatic but we know that they probed and tried to intrude into election systems — not just the social media propaganda part of their campaign.”
Clinton went on to warn the crowd that the threat remains: “The Russians are not done; this is an ongoing threat (with the) strategic goal that he has followed up on relentlessly."
Remember when Mitt Romney was mocked by the media elites for warning us about Russians in 2008? Those were the halcyon days.
“I think there a lot more connections that have yet to come to light,” Buzzfeed reports Clinton as saying. “If I had been elected I would have called for an independent commission to get to the bottom of it.”
Indeed there have been more connections brought to light, like the very inconvenient truth that the Clintons profited from a President Obama-approved nuclear deal with the Russians while Hillary was secretary of state. But the Trump/Russia blame-game has her too busy at the moment to mention her own indiscretions on the book tour.
Clinton also complained that an issue with her campaign was that Trump's camp was raising doubts about her amongst the voters: “You’ve got Trump and his campaign chanting 'lock her up.' You’ve got stolen emails being weaponized, raising terrible doubts about me. A lot of people just didn’t vote, a lot of people stayed at home, a lot of people were turned away. It just tipped against me in the end, thought I had weathered it.”
Can you imagine the nerve of a candidate who raises doubts about his or her opponent? Who has ever heard of such a tactic? Oh that's right, Hillary Clinton and every other politician! Like in this ad, where she attacks Donald Trump, or this one from 2008 in which she went after Barack Obama. Mrs. Clinton, you gave the voters things to doubt. That's What Happened.
Take some responsibility. This worldwide blame tour grows increasingly awkward by the day, and comparing your loss to 9/11 is as desperate as you can get.
