Hillary Clinton's latest excuse?  Wisconsin voter identification laws.
Roughly 300,000 eligible voters in Wisconsin "lacked valid photo IDs" ahead of the 2016 election, the AP story reported.

However, the article, which was published on May 9, does not provide citation for its number. Further, the report also stated specifically that, "It is unknown how many people did not vote because they didn't have proper identification."

Well then.

Clinton wasn't done: She also blamed the WikiLeaks email scandal and a rash of "fake news" stories for distorting Wisconsin voters' perception of her as a presidential candidate.

"So some people stayed home. Some people voted for Trump. Some people stayed with me, and some people went third party," she said. "It was a confluence of all kinds of things."

Sure, it was a confluence of events, not least of all the fact that she never visited the damned state. You know who could've cleared up those supposed "fake news" misconceptions about Hillary Clinton? Hillary Clinton.
But don't you dare ask the Dowager Empress why she failed to campaign in Wisconsin.  As for the Democratic National Committee, you know, the folks who did everything they could to push Herself's pantsuited cankles to the nomination, and squelch Crazy Bernie, well, that wasn't enough.
"So I’m now the nominee of the Democratic Party. I inherit nothing from the Democratic Party," she said during a question and answer session at Code Conference in Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif.

"I mean, it was bankrupt. It was on the verge of insolvency. Its data was mediocre to poor, nonexistent, wrong," she recalled. "I had to inject money into it."
Yes, and she relied on her data-crunchers, rather than on her husband's political instincts.  Pathetic.

John Kass sees it as it is.  "It is the profound failure of the elites, scurrying to cover themselves."
They knew Trump was loud, they knew he was vulgar, they knew he was trouble. And they voted for him because they wanted him to make trouble.

They wanted him to punch the Washington elites in the mouth, to kick them and stomp on them as they had been kicked and stomped on. They detest the ruling elites in the modern Versailles so much that they installed a character like Trump.
Yes, and the continued doubling down on the usual condescension, the usual talking points, and the usual process-worship by the self-styled resistance isn't going to change many minds.  "They don’t know America, and they don’t much like it."
