Former Secretary of State and twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton addressed the graduating class at Yale University on Sunday and made quite an admission in her commencement speech.
Clinton admitted that a year and a half after the 2016 election, she was still “not over” losing what she thought was a sure thing to then-candidate Donald Trump.
According to The Daily Caller, Clinton never actually spoke President Trump’s name during her speech, but took several obvious shots at him nonetheless.
In a bid to perpetuate the increasingly unraveling Trump/Russia collusion narrative as an excuse for her loss, Clinton produced a Russian-style black fur hat and joked, “I mean, if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em.”
“I remember the first months after that 2016 election were not easy. We all had our own methods of coping,” stated the woman who was potentially the most corrupt person to ever run for president.
Those methods would include “long walks in the woods” of Chappaqua, “hours going down a Twitter rabbit hole” of leftist-spun Trump/Russia conspiracy theories and more than her “fair share of chardonnay.”
“No, I’m not over it,” admitted Clinton. “I still think about the 2016 election. I still regret the mistakes I made.”
“I still think, though, that understanding what happened in such a weird and wild election in American history will help us defend our democracy in the future,” she added.
Unlike virtually all failed presidential candidates before her, this woman simply will not get over her unexpected loss, be quiet and go away so the candidate that actually won can go about governing the nation that chose him.
Perhaps if she surveyed those graduates from Yale about the differences between a “democracy” and a Constitutional Republic — with a focus on the Electoral College versus the popular vote — she might begin to understand where she went wrong.
Perhaps if she had spent more time traveling to the Midwest and rust belt states — like Wisconsin — and mingled with actual voters, instead of staying almost exclusively among the elite in the northeast and on the left coast, she might have actually won.
Unfortunately for the Democrats, she did not, and now Donald Trump is president — and she is left making lame jokes about Russian conspiracies at university graduation ceremonies.
