Hillary’s latest lame excuse for losing



Hillary Clinton has emerged from, in her own words, “taking selfies in the woods” to embrace the latest Democratic excuse for her election loss: so-called fake news.

The latest, that is, in a growing list of scapegoats that so far includes FBI Director James Comey, Russian interference, Anthony Weiner’s cellphone, Fox News and the alt-right.

It includes everything, in fact, save the most obvious reason she lost: She was a lousy candidate who ran a lousy campaign.

Now, Clinton didn’t explicitly blame what she denounced as the “epidemic” of fake news for Donald Trump’s victory.

Speaking at a retirement ceremony for Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, she seemed to be referring mostly to the now-famous incident in which a man brought a gun to a pizza parlor after reading online that it was the center of a pedophilia ring.
