Psaki: Clinton’s Perception Has Been ‘Baked Into the Cake for About 10 Years’
Washington Free Bacon ^ | 05/07/2017 | Cameron Cawthorne

Posted on 05/07/2017 12:20:46 PM PDT by ForYourChildren

Barack Obama's former White House communications director, Jen Psaki, appeared Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union," where she pushed back against Hillary Clinton's explanation for her 2016 presidential election loss.

Host Jake Tapper asked Psaki what she thought of Clinton's statement on Tuesday in which she blamed her loss on FBI Director James Comey and Russian hackings.

"I was on the way to winning until the 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 [and] persuasive," Clinton told CNN's Christiane Amanpour at a Women for Women International event in New York.

Psaki pushed back against Clinton's assessment, saying, "We don't really know that."

"Was sexism a factor? Yes. Was Comey a factor? Was Russia a factor? Absolutely," Psaki said.

She then went on to say that she has watched many focus groups and studied several polls over the years regarding Clinton's likability, arguing that "the perception of her was baked into the cake for about ten years."

Except, of course, she is wrong about the perception of the democrat party. It is not so much that they support the 1% wealthy. It is that they are hostile to the founding principles of our country. The democrat party is part and parcel of the global communist front seeking tyrannical one world government. That is why they lose. They have become the enemy.

Make that twenty-five years, and I'm on board.

When you trash women your husband lusted after, raped, and assaulted, then buy into the line, "You drag a dollar through a trailer park...", you and your slut of a husband are so much lower than anyone else in the equation.

Absolute bullsh*t. She lost because she's a crook, everyone knows she's a crook, even Democraps who refuse to admit it. And in Hillarys extreme arrogance - thinking she would easily win - she sat on her fat arrogant cankle supported arse her entire campaign while Trump was out there every single day busting his. THAT is why she lost!

Fourth of the July fireworks—half-off—from Hillary’s victory celebration.

Yup. Hillary, like most of her supporters, has no concept of working for something rather than just having it handed to you.

Using Jen’s logic, Sexism and hatred of women caused the McCain/Palin defeat.

I cannot figure out who is more brain dead: Jen Psaki, Mary Harf or Susan Rice. All three show signs of outward idiocy and a lack of cerebral function deep inside their libtard brains.

"Was sexism a factor? Yes. Was Comey a factor? Was Russia a factor? Absolutely," Psaki said.

Lefties are fond of answering their own questions. Saves them being asked anything embarrassing and nobody disputes their answers.

“Sexism” WAS a factor. A BIG one.

1- hilLIAR expected women and effeminate men to vote for her because she (supposedly) has a vagina

2- They trashed Trump unmercifully over the Hollyweird Access, et al. That was released SOLELY to appeal to the Dumb Woman Vote

Gender played a huge role in the election, but not as portrayed by Psaki, MSM et al

She's not actually disagreeing. She's saying that there may be validity in all those things but Hillary lost mostly because people didn't like her, and that they hadn't liked her for a long time, and that Hillary should have known that.

When somebody says "Was it this? Absolutely. Was it that? Certainly. But more than any of that it was this other thing," the person talking isn't saying it was mostly this or that. She's saying it was mostly the other thing.

When I worked in the Pentagon, a relative of Psaki’s brought up the topic of how you can’t choose your relatives. I prodded him and he said she was a brain-dead liberal. Later I learned he was referring to this young woman at the State department.
No such anecdote about Marie Harf (”Barbie”) as we call her. But she is equally stupid and liberal.

Besides a fawning, subservient “aid”, does Hillary have any personal friends. Besides Jim Beam that is.
