Hillary lost the election months ago, but she is still searching for scapegoats. Thanks Obama, guess who Hillary is blaming now?
That's right, the Clinton team is still furious with their loss and still dishing out blame. The person they blame the most? Former President Barack Obama.
Clinton staffers spoke with Axios. In their opinion, Obama was more harmful than her scandals, Director Comey's investigation and even those darn Russian hackers. In their opinion, Obama simply did not do enough. They also claim Obama should have went after Russia more aggressively.
Per The Daily Caller:
“The White House was like everyone else: They thought she’d win anyway,” a member of Clinton’s campaign told Axios. “If he had done more, it might have lessened a lot of aggrieved feelings, although I don’t think it would have altered the outcome. The Russia thing was like a spy novel, and anything he said or did would have helped get people to believe it was real.”
Thanks Obama - Hillary Blames Obama
Obviously, Obama does not agree with their stance. He even said this should have been "an easy layup of a win."
At a White House press conference on November 14, Obama took a dig at Hillary after her loss to Trump. “I won Iowa not because the demographics dictated that I would win Iowa. It was because I spent 87 days going to every small town and fair and fish fry and VFW Hall, and there were some counties where I might have lost, but maybe I lost by 20 points instead of 50 points,” said Obama. “There’s some counties maybe I won, that people didn’t expect, because people had a chance to see you and listen to you and get a sense of who you stood for and who you were fighting for.”
President Obama won Iowa both 2008 and 2012. Hillary lost Iowa by almost 10%.
