Twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton found another excuse for her 2016 defeat to Donald Trump this week, this time slamming the “maddening” and “troubling” electoral college for her election disaster.
The former Secretary of State was speaking at Harvard University when she predictably re-hashed her 2016 race for the White House; this time blasting the “odd system” she believes cost her the presidency.
“I know this is another really obvious thing to say. Vote in every election, not just presidential elections,” Clinton said. “You know, it is maddening because one of the panelists said we get the government that we vote for. Now, we have this odd system with the Electoral College.”
“It’s a little troubling… But nevertheless, we’ve got it. I’ve been against it, by the way, since 2000,” Clinton added. “Not that you need to know that … I have been, because I just think it is absolutely contrary to ‘one person, one vote.'”

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.
