Bill Clinton’s words will anger many in the media. NO, he does not blame Comey for Hillary’s loss. For once, I agree with Bill Clinton!
Former President William Jefferson Clinton never believed that James Comey and the FBI were to blame for Hillary Clinton’s devastating loss to Donald Trump in the 2016 Presidential Election.
A Bill Clinton insider, and one of his closest advisers, told author Ed Klein the surprising truth about the former President’s views on who is ultimately responsible for Hillary’s shellacking on Election Day.
Conservative Tribune reports:
As far as Bill was concerned, all the blame belonged to Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook, campaign chairman John Podesta and Hillary Clinton herself “because they displayed a tone-deaf attitude about the feeble economy and its impact on millions and millions of working-class voters,” Klein wrote.
All along, Bill Clinton wanted to make the economy the centerpiece of Hillary’s campaign. He also believed that the nonstop attacks on Donald Trump “made Hillary’s staff and the media happy, but that it wasn’t a message that resonated with voters, especially in the Rust Belt.”
As a veteran campaigner himself, Bill Clinton was always the man who could “feel the pain” of the common man. He always strove to convey the message that he would work tirelessly to make things better for the working class.
Former President Clinton has always maintained a persona that resonates with the working class. In fact, most people believe he is likable and can envision themselves having a beer or dinner with him.
Perhaps that is the key difference between the successful President Bill Clinton and the failed Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton.
He is likable. She is not.
It is absolutely not the fault of Donald Trump, or James Comey, that voters do not find Hillary likable.
The former President has a point: Perhaps Hillary and her team need to take a long look in the mirror, not that it matters now!
