Conway Goes Off On Clinton For Remarks On Losing The 2016 Election (TWEETS)

On Tuesday, 2016 Democratic presidential nominee and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton actually revealed her reasoning behind why she lost. Regardless of what all of America may think, she believes she would have won the election had it not been for FBI Director James Comey and the slew of emails released by WikiLeaks in the last few months of the campaign. She said:

‘I was on the way to winning until a combination of Jim Comey’s letter on Oct. 28 and Russian WikiLeaks raised doubts in the minds of people who were inclined to vote for me but got scared off. And the evidence for that intervening event is I think compelling, persuasive, and so we overcame a lot in the campaign.’

She also added, “If the election were on October 27, I’d be your president.”

However, Kellyanne Conway feels differently. Conway was Trump’s campaign manager during the election and is now the Counselor to the President. She responded to Clinton’s remarks on Twitter tweeting:

‘You ignored WI
Called us deplorable/irredeemable
Had oodles of $$ & no message
Lost to a better candidate

From: Woman in the White House’

Conway is, of course, referencing the fact that Trump and his administration have consistently remarked that Clinton was out of touch and ignored the true working-class American voters in Wisconsin.

Also, it is true that Clinton called Trump supporters “irredeemable” and said they could be placed in a “basket of deplorables.” It was an unfortunate moment for the Clinton campaign. As hilarious as it was for her to say, it was the last thing that average, hard-working Americans needed to hear their potential president say.

However, Conway’s statement on Clinton losing to a better candidate is highly questionable. Clinton has never been caught on tape talking about grabbing women by their genitals. Furthermore, Clinton was much more qualified to be president than Trump could ever dream of being. As a former first lady, former Secretary of State under former President Barack Obama, and living her entire life in the political world, Clinton’s credentials were far superior to Trump’s.

Additionally, as much scandal as Clinton has had to deal with in her life, Trump and his administration are actively being investigated for colluding with the Russians to win the 2016 election.
