Schumer presented the Democrats’ new economic platform, billed as “a better deal,” as the answer to the messaging problem that he believes resulted in their 2016 defeat. The recently released platform seeks to win back working class Democratic defectors by casting the party as the defender of blue collar interests over those of corporations.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi joined Schumer in assigning blame for the loss to the Clinton campaign, but maintained that the conduct of former FBI Director James Comey and Russian meddling in the election had “an influence.” “Well I think that they had an influence. There is absolutely no question about that, but when you have a campaign, you’re responsible for your campaign. I don’t even want to go into that,” Schumer told Fox News’ Chris Wallace on Sunday.
After eight months of rhetoric of Trump winning the election because of Russia blah blah...Finally two of the dumbest Senators in Pelosi and Schumer finally agree that Hillary's 2016 election loss is finally Hillary's own fault. What took eight months for a couple of dumb Democrats to finally realize that Hillary Clinton is only at fault, is it because the Russian narrative has finally collapsed...Or are they realizing that their seats in the US House are finally up for grabs?
Whatever led Pelosi and Schumer to finally blame Hillary for her own election loss in 2016, it is a good sign of relief. Now with this though I would probably put Pelosi and Schumer on suicide watch for calling out the Hillary campaign's own mistakes for Hillary's loss to President Trump in the 2016 election.
