5 Reasons Hillary Clinton Was the Worst Presidential Nominee in History

Like every presidential election that liberals lose, years later we’re still hearing about how unfair it all was. Of course, the favorite complaint of liberals this time around is “Russia did it!” Even if you accept for the sake of argument that Russia wanted Trump to win and hacked John Podesta’s email (and neither of those assertions may be true), buying some inconsequential Facebook ads for both sides and revealing the contents of John Podesta’s emails (none of which turned into truly major stories) wasn’t exactly a game changer.

Liberals also noted that Hillary would have won had the election been decided by the popular vote. This is like noting that if football games were decided by passing yards instead of the score, the Patriots would have beaten the Eagles in the Super Bowl. It doesn’t work that way, by design. We’ve also heard complaints that Bernie Sanders is responsible, presumably for daring to run against Hillary at all and we can’t forget “sexism.” That’s always a liberal rallying cry.

Moreover, it is impossible to overemphasize that, other than a few true believers, almost all of the political professionals (myself included) thought Hillary would win. In fact, if you believe Michael Wolff’s book, Fire and Fury, even the Trump campaign thought it was going to lose – and no wonder.

Just look at these numbers from June of 2016,

Give us five reasons we'd be sorry if she were elected. That should be easy.

Here you have the real collusion, and the person who the Russian's were really trying to get elected into office. Why would they want Trump in office? He can't be bought and he loves his country. HRC, on the other hand, wants money and probably doesn't really care about her country so long as she is comfortable and has made history. Lie, cheat, and steal your way to the top!!

Just my 2 cents.
