Wisconsin: Hillary Blames Russia

So many excuses.

From the Daily Wire:
Hillary said 17 intelligence agencies "concluded with high confidence that the Russians ran an extensive information war campaign against my campaign, to influence voters in the election. They did it through paid advertising we think, they did it through false news sites, they did it through these thousand agents, they did it through machine learning, which you know, kept spewing out this stuff over and over again. The algorithms that they developed. So that was the conclusion. And I think it’s fair to ask, how did that actually influence the campaign? And how did they know what messages to deliver?"

Then she got more specific, wading in to how she lost the key states of Wisconsin and Pennsylvania. She says the Russians -- "let's say Wikileaks, something" -- dumped false information about her. Deluged with that on social media, voters -- dumb ones, especially, Hillary said -- on the fence in the waning days were searching for the truth, she said. "And we know that the Google searches for this stuff were particularly high in places in Wisconsin and Pennsylvania," Hillary concluded.

Oh, good grief.

Hillary never came to Wisconsin to campaign. For her to say that she knows what we were thinking here or what influenced us is nuts.

She thinks the Russians dumped false information about her and Trump allies helped "weaponize" it, resulting in her loss in Wisconsin.

Months before the election, I was struck by all the Trump signs throughout the state. Other than in urban areas like Milwaukee and Madison, the signs were everywhere. Trump had a lot of support in Wisconsin and it didn't just spring up in the waning days of the campaign as Hillary claims.

Google searches? Give me a break!

We rejected Democrats. We were told Hillary would win Wisconsin and Feingold likely would defeat Johnson. That's what was going to happen according to polls.


The polls were wrong. We voted for Ron Johnson and kept Russ Feingold out of the Senate. We voted for Donald Trump and kept Hillary out of the White House.

The good thing about Hillary coming out and talking crazy like this is that it prompts me to relive Election Day. That night, watching the returns, was incredible. First, we learned that Feingold failed, again, to defeat Ron Johnson. It was such a relief. I was so happy Johnson won. And then, Wisconsin was called for Trump.

For the first time since Ronald Reagan, the Republican nominee won Wisconsin.

Hillary's weaponizing WikiLeaks theory is loony. We were not duped by the Russians and their allies. It's insulting for her to say Wisconsinites were too stupid to make an informed choice. The reality is she was on course to lose. She didn't campaign here. She miscalculated. She lost because we rejected HER and the Democrat agenda.

It wasn't the Russians, Hillary. It was you.
