Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton reportedly had a major meltdown after her loss to Republican President-elect Donald Trump, according to an insider. What she did immediately after was absolutely unheard of.
Steve Mazlberg invited author Ed Klein to join him on his show on Newsmax TV Wednesday after Trump’s impressive win. Klein, author of “Guilty as Sin: Uncovering New Evidence of Corruption and How Hillary Clinton and the Democrats Derailed the FBI Investigation,” told Mazlberg that Clinton called a friend after learning she had lost and “couldn’t stop crying.”
The shocking twist: Clinton reportedly blamed FBI Director James Comey and incumbent President Barack Obama for the loss. Klein said he had the information on good authority and that it was not merely his opinion.
“Here’s what I know, not my opinion,” Klein said. “About 6:30 this morning she called an old friend. She was crying inconsolably. She couldn’t stop crying. And her friend, her female friend from way, way back, said it was even hard to understand what she was saying, she was crying so hard.
“This is Hillary we’re talking about,” he added.
“Eventually her friend said she could make out that she was blaming James Comey, the director of the FBI, for her loss, and, I don’t understand exactly, the president of the United States for not doing enough,” Klein added.
Klein explained that “not doing enough” was a reference not to campaigning but to impeding the FBI’s investigation of Clinton.
“With the Clintons, especially with Hillary, it’s never her fault,” Klein said.
After losing the election to Donald Trump, Clinton could not even speak to her supporters, choosing instead to give her concession speech the following morning.
This was absolutely unheard of for Clinton. As Klein said: “This is Hillary we’re talking about.”

Tears are understandable, though the great outpouring of emotion might be surprising in the case of someone not noted for sensitivity or warmth. What was more noteworthy is the blame game. Considering the problems Hillary Clinton brought on herself, attributing her loss to Comey and Obama hardly seems responsible.
It seems America definitely dodged a bullet. We need a leader who can take responsibility and not point the finger at others when things go wrong.
