Hillary Clinton recently crawled out of the shadows she had retreated to after her devastating defeat to play the blame game.

She excused her loss to Donald Trump by faulting FBI Director Comey, the Russians, and sexism.

Bu Trey Gowdy responded with some sharp comments that shut her down.

Gowdy appeared on CNN and was quizzed about Clinton’s recent interview where she made every excuse under the sun to deflect from the fact she was a terrible candidate with a horrible message to which a large portion of the American people had developed an intense dislike of over the course of decades of her public life.

The Daily Caller reports:

“Hemmer then asked if Gowdy thought FBI Director James Comey did the right thing by indicating that he was reopening an investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails shortly before the presidential election.

Gowdy blasted the notion that Comey was responsible for the outcome of the election.

“I don’t think [Comey] told Secretary Clinton to have her own server. I don’t think he told her to give disingenuous answers to questions throughout the campaign. I don’t think he told Anthony Weiner to communicate via text with underage girls,” Gowdy railed.

“Secretary Clinton, at some point, ought to do a little self reflection.”

Since losing the election, Clinton has refused to do any self reflection.

In fact she has grown even more defiant in her belief that outside forces cost her the election.

The Washington Post reports:

“Making a rare public appearance, Clinton attributed her surprise loss in the 2016 election to interference by Russian hackers and the actions of FBI Director James B. Comey in the campaign’s homestretch.

“If the election had been on October 27, I would be your president,” Clinton told moderator Christiane Amanpour, the CNN anchor, at a Women for Women International event in New York.

Clinton stated broadly that she takes “absolute personal responsibility” for her failure to win the White House. Yet the Democratic nominee declined to fault her strategy or message, nor did she acknowledge her own weak­nesses as a campaigner or the struggles by her and her advisers to at first comprehend and then respond to the angry mood of broad swaths of the electorate.

Instead, Clinton attributed her defeat to a range of external ­forces, including saying she was a victim of misogyny and of “false equivalency” in the news media.”

Clinton has even added a new conspirator to the plot that denied her the Presidency – the news media.

She’s now whining that unfair press treatment contributed to her loss.

At the end of the day, Clinton can conjure up all the boogeymen she wants.

But Gowdy is correct – no one forced her to set up a private email server and then repeatedly lie about it.

She lost the election because she is a paranoid, corrupt, and uninspiring figure.

Her only claim to the Presidency was that she believed it was owed to her.

But the American people saw through all of it and rejected her candidacy on its own merits – not because of some conspiracy of external factors.
