49 Days Before Election Huffington Post Site Examines ‘Why Hillary Lost’

The blame game has already begun. Here’s where Democrats will point the finger if she loses.

On the high, crenelated ramparts of Castle Clinton, a chill breeze is stirring ― a faint but gnawing sense that the White Walkers are coming, wearing “MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN” baseball caps on their skinless noggins.

If Donald Trump does sack the fortress, no one who lost the battle will want to admit it was Hillary Clinton’s fault. It will have had nothing to do with, say, “transparency” or calling bearded villagers “deplorables” or the Iraq War vote or the simple fact that middle-of-the-road Clintonism ran out of gas as a public philosophy.

No, other individuals, groups and forces will have to be blamed. In fact, they already are, pre-emptively. If Trump wins, we’re all going to be too busy moving to Canada to read the postmortems (or write them), so we offer them to you now:

RANK & REASON

1 THE MEDIA
Everyone’s piñata. Trump will blame the media. Gary Johnson will blame the media. Jill Stein will blame the media. (The media will ask, “Wait, which one was Jill Stein?”)

2 THE RUSSIANS ARE COMING
Actually, they arrived long ago and got into her phone.

3 MILLENNIALS
Ugh. F**cking idealists, right?

4 BERNIE SANDERS
Remember when people worried that running unopposed in the primary would hurt Clinton? It's going to be an endless wail about how Sanders should have withdrawn sooner.

5 BILL CLINTON
You know how this will go down: Best campaigner of all time and he couldn’t close the sale. He lost his mojo.

6 SEXISTS
Ugh. F**cking glass ceiling.

7 OBAMA PEOPLE
If they could delete all of David Axelrod's tweets, they would.

8 JAMES COMEY
He might as well have indicted her for real, like he did in the court of public opinion. Extremely careless.

9 DEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZ AND THE DNC
Her Soviet-style approach to boosting Clinton was something that Hillary’s campaign was happy to countenance. But the former DNC chair should have left room for dissent rather than let it bottle up.

So in other words they are going to blame everyone, the effin' millennials, Bernie, Trump, the bigots and racists and yet not a single fault falls on Hillary for being a terribly untrustworthy piece of work? Unbelievable, they are Hacks, have been for a long time, I haven't read the huff in since 09, there is a reason.

What, the Kim Jong-un Pants suit was not a contributing factor?
