Hillary Clinton supporters are grasping at straws trying to spin the former Democratic nominee’s loss, some of whom are now saying she enjoyed a “successful failure,” whatever that means.
"We talked about sore winners in the earlier segment. We really didn’t lose. This was sort of a successful failure,” radio host Mark Thompson said on MSNBC Saturday.
"So much for the low turn — Jim just said, it’s 1% off. She is close to Barack Obama’s 2012 total. And nobody thought that was going to happen, either. So, so much for, as you mentioned, the economic anxiety, things are not as bad, people upset about the economy. The economy is doing well nine years of private sector job growth, unemployment rate going down. So I think we as voters on our side, whether we voted third party or not. And it’s no secret, I do have affinity for third party movements, need to act if we actually did win some things. The majority of Americans voted a Democratic way. Voted for Hillary Clinton. Voted for Democratic senators, voted for Democratic House of Representatives."
Whatever helps them sleep at night.
