Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has been speaking out about the reasons why she believed she lost to President Donald Trump in 2016, blaming everything and everyone except herself.
Trump called out the former secretary of state on Twitter, saying that Clinton has refused to acknowledge that she was a terrible candidate, which prompted her to respond with what she apparently thought was a hilarious joke about the president and his recent Twitter typo.
However, the president’s son, Donald Trump Jr., quickly put “Crooked Hillary” in her place, giving her a much-needed reminder about who actually won the election, and it’s one of the best one-liner comebacks we have ever seen.
“Crooked Hillary Clinton now blames everybody but herself, refuses to say she was a terrible candidate,” the president tweeted. “Hits Facebook (and) even Dems (and) DNC.”

Clinton, trying to be clever, responded to the president, making fun of his “covfefe” Twitter typo that sent the world in a frenzy.
“People in covfefe houses shouldn’t throw covfefe,” she wrote.

However, what the former secretary of state didn’t know was that she had just set herself up to be burned by Donald Trump Jr. in the most epic one-liner comeback.
“What house is he in again??? That’s what I thought. You’re trying too hard,” he wrote in response to Clinton’s tweet.

Ouch! Somebody get some ice.
As funny as Trump Jr.’s response was, it also made a valid point — Clinton lost the White House, and while she’s certainly entitled to continue to speak about the issues she pretends to be passionate about, she’s doing herself and the Democrat Party a disservice by dwelling on the loss and blaming it on everyone but herself.
When Republicans John McCain and Mitt Romney lost their elections to former President Barack Obama, they didn’t take every opportunity to publicly speak about all the reasons why they believed they lost. Instead, they respected the electoral process and the voters’ decisions, and they went back to their work and normal lives because that’s what people do when they have class and tact — not to mention a work ethic.
Moreover, Clinton should be extremely cautious about trying to instigate a Twitter war with the Trump crew, as they have more than proven that they’re not afraid to speak their minds on social media or call someone out for their mistakes if necessary.
