    Statements like this for example:


    It's pretty hypocritical too when she keeps on going after the NRA and other politicians regarding gun control.

...she was a terrible candidate. I mean really...losing to Trump?!?!

she won the popular vote by a sizable margin. Some like to say it is California but that is still part of the US. When we talk about support from most people it is true that more people supported her.

That said, she did lose important states. By small margins in a few that still represented big flips.

We also tend to forget how strange this race was and just blame her outright. Really it highlights some potentially disturbing trends in some areas of the electorate. Or that the FBI said there was nothing between Trump and Russia, despite internal evidence not showing that at that point in time. And the FBI public ally announcing new email data that turned out to be nothing right before the election.

Trump won, but it was hardly a standard race. It ran from scandal to scandal for the most part with swings like that. And from most polling data it was based more on racial sorts of concerns than economic ones. Which I find troubling. Does not change the result, but it is not a good look for the US.

Look Raist bunnies...
