Hillary Clinton was sure that she was going to win the 2016 presidential election, saying she didnt realize it wasnt going her way until election night, she told The View this morning.
The former secretary of state and Democratic presidential candidate said she thought that the race was going to be a close, hard-fought campaign but that she would come out on top.
Asked if she cried the night of the election, Clinton said no.
No, we didnt cry that night, she said, referring to her husband, former President Bill Clinton.
Hillary Clinton explained her reaction stemmed from a need to be strong for my family and my friends and my supporters.
She said that an Oct. 29 letter from thenFBI Director James Comey to congressional committee chairs about reopening an investigation into her emails cost her the election.
I wouldve won but for Jim Comeys letter, Clinton said.
That stopped my momentum, and it really caused enough people to move away from me. Some moved to Trump. Some moved to third parties. Some didnt vote. The net effect was pretty clear, she said.
Clintons appearance on The View comes a day after her latest book, What Happened, went on sale.
Maybe she would have won if she had campaigned like she wanted to win.
Yeah, just like George McGovern back in 1972.
she had to be physically restrained from attacking her staffers and sedated
She thought she had it rigged and did not have to campaign.
After all, what American would not want to vote for the candidate promising to give your country to fraudulently documented foreigners?
I cried when I thanked God the Dingbat did not win...!
So wait....did she talk about being all sorts of drunk and accosting two of her campaign staff and then crying like a baby for a good half hour or more? Did she talk about that?
“Did you cry the night you lost?”
“I dont know I was too drunk to remember”
We’ve all heard the stories- I wish to God there was video of her screaming and fighting Podesta and tossing a million dollar bottle of champagne through a $7000 TV set.
I went to bed at 2:00 am after election night and slept like a baby. A MASSIVE bullet dodged!
Mrs. Douche Bag was on the View so I’m sure it was not.
“Hillary Clinton explained her reaction stemmed from a need to be strong for my family and my friends and my supporters. She was so strong she couldn’t even face them for five minutes to say thanks. What other candidate has done that?
She was sooooo sure she had won! LMAO!!!!!!!
she didn’t cry?? or she couldn’t cry because she was passed out drunk?
I don’t think she was physically able to campaign. Those last 3-4 weeks before the election she went no where but face first into her medi-vac van.
“She thought she had it rigged and did not have to campaign.”
...and she thought it was a good thing she didn’t have to campaign because she didn’t have the physical stamina to campaign. I don’t think HRC is lazy; I think she’s twenty years past her physical prime and was running against a man who is freakishly energetic.
She blames everybody but her stupid self!
How could she? She was in a drunken stupor, crying and screaming and throwing things.
She’s telling the truth. She didn’t cry.
She screamed, cursed, stomped and hurled objects at the wall and people while her head turned in circles like the exorcist child.
I want her to tell us about throwing the ashtrays around the room.
Here's my reasoning: Trump was closing in during the final days and Hillary need a "bump" to carry her to victory on Election Day.
So the plan was to have Comey suddenly reopen the investigation only to slam it shut once and for all days later. This was calculated to give Hillary the necessary bump just when she needed it most.
But it turned out to be not enough.
