Kellyanne Conway takes Hillary Clinton to school on why she really lost election

If you have time, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will be happy to enumerate the 1,001 reasons she lost the presidential election last November to the guy she thought she should have beaten by 50 points.

Attendees of the Women for Women International Luncheon in New York last week evidently had the time, and Clinton seized the opportunity to run her litany of excuses for losing. There was James Comey and Wikileaks, misogyny, good old Vladimir Putin, and even an easily debunked claim that she was not asked about her jobs plan during the debates with GOP contender and ultimate winner, Donald Trump.

Clinton’s rationalizations took quite a while to unpack, but White House adviser Kellyanne Conway needed far less space — in fact under 140 characters — to set the record straight. Taking a page out of her boss’s playbook, she turned to Twitter for her terse message:

The “signature” on the tweet — Woman in the White House — had to cut like a knife.

Not only does Conway’s message dispense with Clinton’s theory that misogyny is responsible for keeping a woman out of the White House, but it also reminds us that Conway is actually the one to shatter the proverbial glass ceiling.

She is the first woman ever to successfully run a campaign for the presidency. Hillary meanwhile, is a two-time presidential loser.

Conway also tweeted an exasperated response to Clinton’s finger-pointing, calling her self-awareness, or the lack thereof, “stunning.”

Whatever that message may have been, it clearly wasn’t just misogynistic men who weren’t responding to the first female presidential candidate. In fact, during the Democratic primary, Bernie Sanders collected more support from women under 30 than Clinton.
