In an interview with the left-wing Mother Jones, Hillary Clinton, the most evil person ever nominated to the White House by a major party, became a direct threat to democracy by her own definition, and questioned the legitimacy of Donald Trump’s election.
Of course, she cited debunked left-wing fake news and liberal propaganda talking points, claiming Russian interference and non-existent GOP voter suppression.

According to Mother Jones:
In an interview with Mother Jones in downtown Manhattan, Clinton said Russian meddling in the election “was one of the major contributors to the outcome.” The Russians used “weaponized false information,” she said, in “a very successful disinformation campaign” that “wasn’t just influencing voters—it was determining the outcome.”
Republican efforts to make it harder to vote—through measures such as voter ID laws, shortened early voting periods, and new obstacles to registration—likewise “contributed to the outcome,” Clinton said. These moves received far less attention than Russian interference but arguably had a more demonstrable impact on the election result. According to an MIT study, more than 1 million people did not vote in 2016 because they encountered problems registering or at the polls. Clinton lost the election by a total of 78,000 votes in Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.
“In a couple of places, most notably Wisconsin, I think it had a dramatic impact on the outcome,” Clinton said of voter suppression.
Of course, because Russians and voter registration obviously kept Clinton from campaigning in the state.
“It seems likely that it cost me the election [in Wisconsin] because of the tens of thousands of people who were turned away and the margin being so small,” she whined.
Clinton, Mother Jones said, “stood by a claim she made during a presidential debate last year, that if Trump were elected president, he would be Putin’s “puppet.” Asked if she still felt that way, Clinton said, ‘I do.'”
“I don’t know how the president of the United States, with all of the concerns about the integrity of our elections, could meet with Putin just recently and basically say, ‘Well, you know, he told me again he didn’t do it,’” she told Mother Jones. “I can’t believe that he’s so naïve. I think that he hopes or expects the rest of us to be naïve, or at least the people who support him to be naïve. But this is a serious cyberattack on America.”
Here’s video of her interview:
Reaction from many was pretty much what you’d expect.
She really does think we owed it to her. https://t.co/IBreScmlkx

There is zero evidence, anywhere, that Trump was elected president for any reason other than the sufficient number of Americans in the right localities actually voted for him. That's a legitimate election. Period. https://t.co/fe9r5ZE5Ki

Dude, it's over. Let it go.
Trump won because Clinton was a horrible candidate, ran a horrible campaign, and people did not like or trust her.
Trump won the election, as per the method set forth in the Constitution

Hey, remember when Trump suggested he might contest the election and the Press said that is a threat to Democracy…
Now Hillary Clinton is doing just that…. https://t.co/Lsbd2Rc3YH

Bingo. As we reported last November, Clinton — responding to suggestions that Trump may not accept the result of the election if he felt it wasn’t fair — said that not respecting the results would be a direct threat to our democracy.
“To say you won’t respect the result of the election, that is a direct threat to our democracy,” she said.
So, by her own definition, Hillary Clinton is now officially a “direct threat” to our democracy.
The fact remains that Clinton lost because she was an evil, lousy candidate with more baggage than a freight train can carry. For more than forty years, she clawed, scratched, lied, plotted and schemed her way to the White House and didn’t care who got hurt in the process.
Her entire career is riddled with one scandal after another, from Whitewater and “Hillarycare” to Benghazi and her email server.
Since the election, she’s gone from being a lousy candidate to a sore, lousy loser incapable of accepting the fact that she was rejected.
Of course, she’s being a hypocrite, but as Twitchy observed: “Holding yourself to your own publicly professed standards is for the little people.”
- Hillary: Not accepting election results is a ‘threat to Democracy’
- Hillary Clinton: Investigating my ties to Uranium One an authoritarian ‘abuse of power’
- Here’s the 50 Democrats who are now direct threats to democracy, according to Hillary’s definition
