If you listened to the mainstream media, it was a matter of when (not if) Hillary would win. Hillary's aides were popping champagne before the votes were counted!

Hillary's Aides Jumped the Gun!

hillary's aides were popping champagne

Per NY Times:

Mrs. Clinton’s campaign was so confident in her victory that her aides popped open Champagne on the campaign plane early Tuesday. But that conviction, aides would later learn, was based largely on erroneous data showing that young, black and Latino voters and suburban women who had been turned off by Mr. Trump’s comments but viewed Mrs. Clinton unfavorably would turn out for her in higher numbers than they ultimately did.

Exit polls conducted by Edison Research found that among people who said they had decided in the final week before Election Day, 47 percent voted for Mr. Trump and 42 percent for Mrs. Clinton.

As early as Wednesday morning, aides began to explain to Democrats shaken by the loss that the campaign’s sophisticated data modeling had not taken into account the bombshell F.B.I. announcement.

Hillary never did make it on stage that night. Instead she sent out Jon Podesta as a fill-in. Maybe she is a sad drunk and the champagne brought out that side of her.
