Hillary Clinton launched an all-out assault on Donald Trump Wednesday, claiming he must have ‘guided’ Russian efforts to keep her out of the White House.
EDITOR’S NOTE: Hillary Clinton and the fake news media are inextricably wedded to the “russian hackers” narrative to such a degree that Clinton has now embarked on a speaking tour to keep this pathetic fantasy alive. In this video, Hillary sounds like a mental patient as she ticks off a list of reasons for her stunning election loss that include “russian bots”, “weaponized data”, “Content farms in Macedonia'” and “corrupted algorithms”. And just for fun, she has rebooted the “vast right-wing conspiracy” canard.
Openly saying that she believed Trump had ‘colluded’ with Russia, she made an astonishing series of claims about the presidential election, including claiming that the ‘vast majority’ of news about her on Facebook was ‘fake’.
She even cited ‘Pizzagate‘, claiming that claims she was involved in a child sex-trafficking network in a Washington D.C. restaurant had helped swing ‘low information voters’.
Clinton spoke at a tech conference in Silicon Valley to an audience which applauded repeatedly as she outlined her allegations against Trump – a man she described as having a ‘visceral grasp on America’s political underbelly’.
The question and answer session is her latest return to public life after her defeat. It was unclear if she was paid for the appearance at the Codecon conference in Rancho Palos Verde. The loser began by saying: ‘I take responsibility for every decision I made but that is not why I lost.’
Then Clinton spelled out a detailed theory that her campaign had been hit by the Russian hacking and that it used its agents to spread ‘fake news’.
But she added: ‘The Russians in my opinion – and based on intelligence and counterintelligence people I have spoken to – could not have known best how to weaponize that information unless they had been guided by a specific group of people. By Americans.’
The Silicon Valley question and answer adds a whole new list of culprits to those who Hillary Clinton says prevented her from being in the White House. So far those include:
- The FBI
- James Comey, then FBI director
- The Russians
- Vladimir Putin
- ‘Anti-American forces’
- Low information voters
- Everyone who assumed she’d win
- Bad polling numbers
- Obama for winning two terms
- People wanting change
- Suburban women
- The New York Times
- Television executives
- Cable news
- Democrats not making the right documentaries
- Fake news
- ‘Content farms in Macedonia’
- The Republican Party
- The Democratic Party
Pressed by one of the two moderators, Kara Swisher, founder of tech website Recode, as to who it could have been that was doing the guiding she said: ‘Yes, I am leaning Trump. It is pretty hard not to.’
And she repurposed one of her most notorious claims, that in the 1990s she and Bill Clinton were the target of a ‘vast right-wing conspiracy‘, claiming that the media had ‘ignored’ her campaign’s warnings about it before the election.
‘It was a vast right-wing conspiracy,’ she said. ‘Now it is a vast Russian conspiracy – turns out we were right.’
Clinton claimed that Facebook had been used to spread ‘fake news’ about her and claimed that ‘the majority of news’ about her on it was ‘fake’.
It is unclear where her figure comes from. She claimed there were ‘1,000 Russian agents involved in delivering those messages’.
She also alleged that the fact that ‘Wikileaks – the Russians, it’s the same’ had published its hacked John Podesta emails within an hour of the notorious Access Hollywood tape in which Trump was recorded talking about ‘grabbing women’.
They could not have made that decision themselves, she suggested. She claimed ‘low information voters’ were persuaded by reading fake news on Facebook and said: ‘Some people were sucked in. Some people stayed home. Some people voted Trump.’ source
