The chairman of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, John Podesta, went on about how he loses sleep “every night” on Wednesday while talking to CNN’s Alisyn Camerota.
He feels that he is carrying the “burden” of Clinton losing the Electoral College to Donald Trump last November.
Camerota had asked Podesta if Clinton was surprised that Trump still talks about her this far into his presidency.
“It’s unprecedented, you never saw that behavior from any other president who’s talking about the person they beat. I think it really just bugs the hell out of him that she got three million more votes than he did and he keeps coming back to that,” Podesta responded.
Podesta added to his answer that “Obviously we bear the burden of having lost the Electoral College, so I lose sleep about that every night.”
He was then asked what Clinton’s views are about getting under Trump’s skin because she had won the popular vote.
“Well look, I think she’ll have something to say about that when her book comes out mid-September, and I think she’s reflected on the mistakes that she made, what she might have done different, but I think she’ll also talk about where the country is and how to move forward.”
Podesta went on to say, “That’s what she’s always done in her life when she’s gotten knocked down. She’s tried to make a positive contribution coming out of that, and I think that that’s what this book will attempt to do.”
They seem to have forgotten just how many states, and voting citizens of those states, were fully for Trump.
Donald Trump created a movement to transform the country and get America back on the path to greatness that Obama had significantly veered off of.
Clinton’s memoir, What Happened, will be released on September 12 and will be a reflection on her 2016 election loss to now President Trump.
