Hillary Clinton’s latest explanation for why she lost: 10-year-olds dunnit

Hillary Clinton

If you thought that at some point Hillary Clinton would get over her bitterness at having lost the 2016 election and move on with her life, you were evidently sadly mistaken. During the first month or so after the election, Clinton went into seclusion, taking long, presumably contemplative, walks in the woods behind her Chappaqua, N.Y. mansion. But soon after that, she re-emerged full of piss and vinegar to kick off what it appears will eventually turn out to be a lifelong crusade to prove that the election was stolen from her.

In May of this year, following the publication of a new “scientific” study suggesting that Clinton’s loss was a result of Jon Stewart vacating his spot as host of “The Daily Show,” she advised 2020 Democratic hopefuls in Los Angeles, “You can run the best campaign, you can even become the nominee, and you can have the election stolen from you.” (RELATED: How desperately did Hillary Clinton want to be president?

Now she is back with her latest conspiracy theory. During her now-infamous podcast with her husband’s one-time presidential campaign manager, David Plouffe, in which Hillary claimed that 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard is a “Russian asset,” she also insisted that “10-year-olds are hacking our voting systems and the networks that connect them.”

Hillary said (via the Daily Caller’s Justin Caruso):

You know, we don’t really know to what extent the election was interfered in because nobody will look for it. We do know that in Florida a lot more happened than has been admitted publicly.

We know we’re really vulnerable. Every, you know, every Hackathon that happens, you know, 10-year-olds are hacking our voting systems and the networks that connect them.

So we have four big problems and we don’t have a government that is interested in protecting our elections.

What an astonishing claim. Apparently Clinton has tuned out the witch hunt her own party has been conducting for the past three years into the Trump campaign’s since-debunked interference in the 2016 election, which has turned up evidence not of Trump’s collusion but of her own.
