Hillary Clinton ran a great campaign and I can prove it (HC GP)

Hillary Clinton is releasing her book about the 2016 election, and sheís placing the bulk of the blame for her loss on herself. But sheís also pointing out some of the other culprits involved, including the media and the fringe left, prompting them to fire back by accusing her of having run a poor campaign. However, thatís a silly claim. Hillary ran a great campaign, and I can prove it.


Hillary faced a general election opponent in Donald Trump who was criminally conspiring with a major foreign government to rig the election in his favor. She also faced a mainstream media that was intent on giving Trump a free pass by not vetting him, and free advertising by airing his rallies in full, because it didnít want to lose its ratings cash cow. Finally, Hillary faced an FBI Director who went rogue eleven days before the election by releasing a letter which falsely claimed that she was under criminal investigation when she wasnít. These arenít excuses; theyíre facts. And yet she still won the election by three million votes.

But she screwed up by not spending enough time in Wisconsin and Michigan, right? Wrong. She had those two states locked up, until James Comey sent his letter and frightened her least-sure voters into staying home. There was no way she could have anticipated Comeyís letter Ė and it came so late that there was no way to properly adjust strategy after the fact. Whatever you think Comeyís subsequent efforts to stand up to Donald Trump, the cold hard reality remains that he misled the public about a presidential nominee just days before election day, because he was assuming she would win and he was trying to cover his own ass for after the fact.

In fact the political reporters now attacking Hillaryís book are some of the same ones who spent the entire election flat out lying about her. Itís always great ratings to falsely scandalize the frontrunner while propping up the underdog, and most of the media didnít hesitate to play that game. Hillaryís mere continued existence serves as a reminder of how thoroughly and inexcusably complicit the media is in Trumpís rise and the damage heís currently doing to America. Itís why the media keeps trying to shush her now. Itís why the media is attacking her book without having any idea whatís even in it. They want her to go away, so weíll forget that Trump is their fault.


Meanwhile the media rarely aired Hillaryís own words, and instead spent most of its time lying about her emails. The media ignored Hillary when she talked policy, and only aired her when she went after Trump, and then falsely claimed that she didnít spent enough time talking policy. Major news outlets gambled that they could spent the entire election scandalizing and demonizing Hillary while giving a free ride to her opponents, and that their ratings cash-grab wouldnít impact the final outcome anyway. They gambled wrong. The media didnít understand the impact of Trump-Russia collusion, and didnít see the Comey letter coming. Combined, they all conspired to rig the election against Hillary Clinton.


Again, these arenít excuses. Theyíre just the facts. If youíre not aware of any of the above, itís because you were misled or you werenít paying attention. Despite the media placing its thumb on the other side of the scale in both the primary race and the general election, Hillary Clinton won them both in multimillion vote blowouts. Despite Russia and the FBI trying to sabotage her, Hillary still blew out Trump. She ran a great campaign. The end results prove it. Anyone claiming otherwise is peddling fiction.

1. those that supported this are traitors

I will add... You knew and were ok with it because you wanted trump to win. I will also not rule out shenanigans at the voting booth level and totals hacked giving trump more votes that he really had.
