Twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton earned ‘Four Pinocchios’ from Washington Post fact checkers Wednesday; with the left-leaning newspaper slamming her recent claim she lost Wisconsin in the 2016 election due to “voter suppression.”
“Clinton made several factual errors, offered questionable claims about a couple of studies, and ended up giving a misleading assessment of her loss,” writes the Post. “Wrong on multiple levels, seriously misleading and worth a cumulative Four Pinocchios.”

Clinton was speaking in Selma, Alabama when she made the bizarre claim; saying “I was the first person who ran for president without the protection of the Voting Rights Act, and I will tell you, it makes a really big difference.”
“It made a difference in Wisconsin, where the best studies that have been done said somewhere between 40 and 80,000 people were turned away from the polls because of the color of their skin, because of their age, because of whatever excuse could be made up to stop a fellow American citizen from voting,” she added.
EXCUSES TOUR 2019: Hillary Says She Lost Wisconsin Because of… the SUPREME COURT
Hillary Clinton’s non-stop Excuses Tour continued over the weekend, when the twice-failed presidential candidate blamed the US Supreme Court for her inability to defeat Donald Trump in the swing-state of Wisconsin.
“The Congress is supposed to legislate based on evidence and facts, which we did. And then it gets up to the Supreme Court and they say, ‘No, you don’t need that anymore. We don’t need that voting rights stuff,” said Clinton during a speech in Alabama.
“I was the first person who ran for president without the protection of the Voting Rights Act and I will tell you it made it makes a really big difference and it doesn’t make a difference in Alabama and Georgia, it made a difference in Wisconsin where the best studies that have been done said somewhere between 40,000 and 80,000 people were turned away from the polls because of the color of their skin, because of their age, because of whatever excuse could be made up to stop a fellow American citizen from voting,” she added.
FIREWORKS: Hosts of ‘The View’ SLAM HILLARY, Say She's a ‘POLITICAL VIRUS’
Sparks flew at ABC’s ‘The View’ on Tuesday, with co-hosts Joy Behar, Meghan McCain, and Whoopi Goldberg unloading on former presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton; saying she was a “political virus” who needs “back-off right now.”
The hosts were discussing Clinton’s recent comments in India where she bizarrely stated that ‘white women’ voted for Donald Trump because their husbands forced them to.
“She ran one of the worst campaigns ever, she didn’t do the kind of ground game in Wisconsin and North Carolina that she should have,” said McCain. “At this point, you can stop making this about virtue signaling and race. A lot of it was about poverty and the economy.”
“If you’re messaging is, ‘Woman can’t think for themselves, that our husbands and our bosses and sons tell us what to do,’ that’s quite the message going forward into the midterms,” she added.
“I think everybody just has to stop talking, we have to stop looking back,” said Whoopi.
“The Clintons are a virus in the Democratic Party, you have to move on,” McCain told Behar.
“I thought that it was time for them to back-off. Right now, right now. They’re not helping the party right now,” Behar agreed.
