Hillary Clinton still won’t accept reality.
She has not gotten over her loss to Donald Trump.
And at a recent appearance, she made the most insane statement ever about the election.
Recently, Hillary Clinton appeared at the Women in the World Summit.
She discussed her election defeat.
And rather than accept the fact that the American people rejected her candidacy, Clinton played the blame game.
At the top of her list was “misogyny”.
The Daily Caller reported:
“Certainly misogyny played a role,” Clinton said of the election while speaking at the Women in the World Summit on Thursday. “I mean, that has to be admitted.”
She later suggested that her consistent unfavorable ratings in public opinion polls are the result of her just being too successful.
Clinton claimed that there’s an “inverse relationship” with success and likability — but only for women. The more successful men are, Clinton claimed, the more well-liked they are, while women are disliked for their success.”
Clinton’s excuse making is laughable.
The media made it a point during the election to constantly point out that Trump’s disapproval ratings were the worst for any candidate in history.
But Trump won the election on issues – not sexism.
Professors unwittingly illustrated this point when they reenacted the Presidential debate with a man delivering Clinton’s answers and a woman standing in for Trump.
And the results were shocking.
Attendees reported they understood how Trump won the election and could not stand the male actor who delivered Hillary’s performance.
NYU News reported:
“The two sold-out performances of Her Opponent took place on the night of Saturday, January 28, just a week after President Trump’s inauguration and the ensuing Women’s March on Washington.
Many were shocked to find that they couldn’t seem to find in Jonathan Gordon what they had admired in Hillary Clinton—or that Brenda King’s clever tactics seemed to shine in moments where they’d remembered Donald Trump flailing or lashing out. For those Clinton voters trying to make sense of the loss, it was by turns bewildering and instructive, raising as many questions about gender performance and effects of sexism as it answered.”
Others in attendance described how even more effective Trump’s “Make America Great Again” message was when it was a woman delivering the lines.
NYU News also reported:
“We heard a lot of “now I understand how this happened”—meaning how Trump won the election. People got upset. There was a guy two rows in front of me who was literally holding his head in his hands, and the person with him was rubbing his back. The simplicity of Trump’s message became easier for people to hear when it was coming from a woman—that was a theme. One person said, “I’m just so struck by how precise Trump’s technique is.” Another—a musical theater composer, actually—said that Trump created “hummable lyrics,” while Clinton talked a lot, and everything she was was true and factual, but there was no “hook” to it. Another theme was about not liking either candidate—you know, “I wouldn’t vote for either one.” Someone said that Jonathan Gordon [the male Hillary Clinton] was “really punchable” because of all the smiling. And a lot of people were just very surprised by the way it upended their expectations about what they thought they would feel or experience. There was someone who described Brenda King [the female Donald Trump] as his Jewish aunt who would take care of him, even though he might not like his aunt. Someone else described her as the middle school principal who you don’t like, but you know is doing good things for you.”
Voters chose Trump because he spoke up for the issues they cared about.
His message of “America First” by securing the borders, ending trade deals that rip off American workers, and staying out of foreign wars in the Middle East was a more effective rallying cry than Hillary’s pitch of “It’s my turn.”
Clinton was crushed by the loss.
But the fact remains she lost because she was a lousy candidate with a lousy message.
