Doomed presidential nominee Hillary Clinton refuses to acknowledge calls from her own party to stop talking about the 2016 election; saying during a recent interview that she lost to Donald Trump because she’s a “capitalist.”
The former Secretary of State was speaking at the Shared Value Leadership Summit Wednesday when she continued to make bizarre excuses for her stunning defeat to Donald Trump; this time saying her “capitalist” credentials hurt her chances among American voters.
“It’s hard to know,” said Clinton when asked if her business dealings hurt her chances.
“If you’re in the Iowa caucuses and 41 percent of Democrats are socialists, or self-described socialists, and I’m asked, ‘Are you a capitalist?’ And I say, ‘Yes, but with appropriate regulation and appropriate accountability,’ you know, that probably gets lost in the ‘Oh my gosh, she’s a capitalist,’” said Clinton.

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.
WHAT HAPPENED? Hillary’s Popularity at RECORD LOWS After Her ‘Excuses Tour’
A new poll released by the Wall Street Journal this week shows Hillary Clinton’s popularity at historic lows, reaching unprecedented levels over a year after her surprise defeat to Donald Trump.
According to the survey, just 27% of Americans have a ‘very positive’ or ‘somewhat positive’ view of the twice-failed presidential nominee; a drop of 3% from a previous poll that showed her popularity at 30%.
“A Journal analysis of the poll notes that the poll is a reminder of ‘just how unusual’ Clinton is in terms of her unpopularity — even among recent losing presidential nominees who have typically experienced a post-election decline, but not to the extent Clinton has. At the time of the election, 40 percent had a positive view of her,” writes Fox News.
Clinton made national headlines just weeks ago -drawing fire from both Democrats and Republicans- after she slammed “white women” who voted for Trump; claiming they were forced to vote for the GOP nominee by their “husbands and sons.”
