Twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton continued her non-stop excuses tour Monday night, telling a packed crowd that “sexism” and “misogyny” ultimately cost her the 2016 race for the White House.
The former Secretary of State was speaking at a Human Rights event in the nation’s capital when she lashed out at Trump supporters for “going backwards,” saying GOP voters were “frightened” and “feeling insecure” about the future of the country.
“I see [the election] as a reaction that is driven by lots of different motives, some of them having to do with people feeling insecure, frightened, disappointed, discouraged […] about their lives and the ongoing globalization of the economy.”
“Any of you who’ve read my book about what happened know that I think misogyny and sexism was part of that campaign, it was one of the contributing factors,” said Clinton.
“Some of it was old-fashioned sexism and a refusal to accept the equality of women -and certainly the equality of women’s leadership- and some of it as an outgrowth of all of this anxiety and insecurity that is playing on people and leading them in a hunt for scapegoats,” she added.

MORE EXCUSES: Hillary Blames 'Creepy' Trump for Poor Debate Performance
Hillary Clinton released an excerpt from her new book on MSNBC Wednesday, where the failed democratic nominee viciously attacked “creepy” Donald Trump; adding that her republican opponent made her “skin crawl” during the Presidential debates.
The excerpt from ‘What Happened’ revealed the former Secretary of State’s inner-most thoughts during the televised town hall formatted debate, saying then-candidate Trump was “literally breathing down my neck.”
“This is not ok, I thought. It was the second presidential debate and Donald Trump was looming behind me,” said Clinton. “No matter where I walked he followed me closely, staring at me, making faces. It was incredibly uncomfortable. He was literally breathing down my neck. My skin crawled,” she writes.
Clinton adds that she then faced two choices: ignore her opponent and continue the debate or turn around and tell him to “get away.”
“Do you stay calm, keep smiling, and carry on as if he weren’t repeatedly invading your space? Or do you turn, look him in the eye, and say loudly and clearly, ‘Back up you creep, get away from me.'” asked Hillary.
“I kept my cool, aided by a lifetime of dealing with difficult men trying to throw me off,” she added. “I did, however, grip the microphone extra hard.”
Hillary’s memoir, “What Happened,” is available September 12th.
OUCH: Sarah Huckabee Sanders CRUSHES Hillary's Excuses Tour On-Air
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders didn’t hold back when asked to weigh-in on Hillary Clinton’s new tell-all memoir; blasting the former Secretary of State for “misunderstanding” President Trump and “placing blame” on others when she should be “accepting it herself.”
Huckabee Sanders was speaking with reporters at a White House press briefing when she was asked to comment on remarks Hillary made during her months long excuses tour.
“[Hillary Clinton] said she wished that President Trump was the President for all Americans. Do you have any reaction to this characterization of the President’s role in the White House?” asked one journalist.
“I think that type of misunderstanding of who this President is, and frankly, a misunderstanding of what he’s been doing, is exactly one of the reasons that Hillary Clinton is not the President, and is instead pushing a book with a lot of false narratives and a lot of false accusations; placing blame on a lot of other people instead of accepting it herself,” the Press Secretary fired-back.
For months, Hillary Clinton has been blaming external factors for her stunning defeat to Donald Trump last fall, lashing-out at prominent democrats, the DNC, Russian collusion, the FBI, sexism, and more.
