Delusional Hillary suggests that she’s the real victim of Matt Lauer

The publication of her book “What Happened?” revealed the true depths of Hillary Clinton’s self-obsession. Even now, after Republicans and Democrats have ridiculed her public blame tours, Clinton has still found a way to make a sex scandal all about her.

Last week, while talking about “Today” host Matt Lauer’s firing over accusations of sexual harassment, Clinton suggested that it was “karma” over Lauer’s tough questioning of her during the 2016 campaign.

“The only way we will get sexism out of politics is to get more women in politics,” Clinton said to a crowd in Philadelphia.

The implication here is that sexism defeated Clinton’s presidential ambitions, ergo Lauer, an accused sexual predator, helped misogyny to win the White House.

Growing Criticism

This event and Clinton’s words did not sit well with left-wing reporters for the “Philly Voice” in attendance.

“Philly Voice” contributor Stephen Silver noted that, once again, Clinton’s speech was all about blaming others for her electoral defeat in November 2016.

“When it came to the forces that she felt contributed to the election result in 2016, Clinton checked off everything from Russian interference to the James Comey letter to an unfair news media to voter suppression efforts,” Silver said.

Such comments should not be surprising given Clinton’s recent history of blaming everyone but herself. Clinton has blamed Bernie Sanders, sexism, the Russian government, women, and former FBI Director James Comey for her historic defeat last year.

Such antics may have finally broken Clinton’s support with Democratic donors, one of whom told Clinton to “shut up” and go away.

The Putsch

At the moment, some commentators have suggested that the Democrats are undertaking an anti-Clinton putsch within the party.

After Donna Brazile revealed that the DNC became a Clinton operation in 2015, and after the numerous sex scandals raging in Washington and Hollywood have caused some liberals to call for a “reckoning” over Bill Clinton, there seems to be a push to take power away from Bill and Hillary.

Linda Tripp, one of the key players in the impeachment proceedings against President Clinton in the late 1990s, has called such anti-Clinton rhetoric a “day late” and “a dollar short.”

It appears that the Democrats are finally willing to abandon the Clintons now that it has become obvious that Hillary Clinton is no longer a viable presidential candidate. Hillary’s complaint tours have not helped her cause.

Indeed, Clinton’s one-woman war against everyone and everything has made it easier for Democrats to create some space between them and their last presidential candidate.

Earth to Hillary – Matt Lauer didn’t lose his job because he asked you hard questions. He lost his job because he was a sexual predator who harassed, abused and assaulted women for years. Those women, not you, are the real victims.
