Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s desperate attempt to overturn the presidential election results in key states is coming apart at the seams.
After decades of getting everything they want, the Clintons are finally tasting the bitter rejection of the American people — and the mounting recount failures, combined with the election results, have reportedly left husband Bill Clinton dazed and dumbfounded.
Hillary’s last ditch attempt at a recount, spear-headed by over six million in donations by heavily Democratic backers to Green Party candidate Jill Stein, is facing increasing difficulties and missteps.
In Wisconsin, Dane County Circuit Judge Valerie Bailey-Rihn has refused to order local officials to conduct the state’s presidential recount by hand, acknowledging that Stein’s wild conspiracy theory of Russians hacking voting equipment had zero evidence.
And in Pennsylvania, Stein’s team missed a critical deadline to officially file for a voter-initiated recount. According to The Washington Examiner, “That blown deadline is a huge blow for Democrats who have pinned their hopes on recounts in the Keystone State, Michigan and Wisconsin.”
As a result of their stunning election loss, the Clinton empire has begun to unravel — and it has left former President Bill Clinton stunned.
In early November, it was widely reported that, as poll numbers began to shift in President-elect Donald Trump’s favor during the last days of the election, Hillary and Bill’s had an intense screaming match over the phone, blaming each other for the failing campaign.
According to The Associated Press, since the election, Bill “has been poring over the election results, second-guessing decisions by top campaign aides and intensely trying to figure out how his wife lost the white working-class voters who were the base of his electoral coalition, say people familiar with the campaign.”
Meanwhile, donations to the controversial Clinton Foundation have plunged this year, down a reported 37 percent. And Hillary has been left to wander aimless around the woods on long, lonely hikes near her Westchester home in New York, according to her remaining staffers.
Even longtime Clinton cronies and aides are expressing their discontent. “This [recount effort] is a big waste of time,”said former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell, a longtime Clinton political ally who is urging Democrats to move past the loss.
“I wouldn’t give a dollar to Jill Stein,” said Adam Parkhomenko, a longtime Clinton aide, told The Associated Pressregarding his fellow liberal’s effort to overturn the election. “Volunteers, supporters and Democrats, they want to pick themselves up and get back out there. The best vehicle to do that is the Louisiana Senate race,” referencing a Dec. 10th runoff election that is progressive’s last chance to pick up a Senate seat.
