(National Sentinel)Â Political comedy:Â When the excuse put forth by Hillary Clinton and her Democratic Party that the â€œRussians hacked the electionâ€ in favor of Donald J. Trump didnâ€™t pan out and gain much traction with the public, they changed the narrative to, â€œRussia and Trump colluded to â€˜steal the electionâ€™â€ from Hillary.
Now that the current narrative is also falling apart (because itâ€™s bogus), the two-time presidential loser is offering yet another variation of the â€œRussiaâ€ theme: That the Trump campaignâ€™s data operations were so important to the Russians they used it to, you know, â€œsteal the electionâ€ and â€œhelpâ€ Trump win.
As reported by Lifezette, Clinton leveled the allegations during her â€œblame tourâ€ this week, and of course, far-Left Democratic operatives are now running with it. Problem is, not only is this allegation also untrue, those familiar with the Trump campaignâ€™s bare-bones data operations are laughing hysterically.
Speaking to Recode founders Walt Mossberg and Sara Swisher on Wednesday at the organizationâ€™s annual coding conference in California, Clinton said she took â€œresponsibility for every decisionâ€ she made during her campaign, but added, â€œthatâ€™s not why I lost.â€ She then went on to blame Russia, â€œweaponized information,â€ and a number of other players.

She specifically blamed propaganda â€œcontentâ€ use by Trumpâ€™s campaign to influence voters in some covert manner, while claiming the Trump team also spread â€œliesâ€ about her while she and hercampaign â€” which shafted rival Bernie Sanders with help from the Democratic National Committee â€” was a virtue of honesty.
Clinton blamed â€œ1,000 Russian agentsâ€ who worked daily to distort â€œcontentâ€ that was being published online, but because she was in the company of fellow Left-wing travelers, her claims were never challenged. And then she made this bizarre claim â€” that the Russians could never have successfully blocked her victory unless the effort were â€œguided by Americans,â€ and for that effort, she said she was â€œleaning toward Trumpâ€ as the prime suspect.
That narrative was then echoed by Nick Ackerman, an assistant Watergate prosecutor, during an interview with Trump-hating fake news network CNN.
â€œThe allegation that weâ€™re looking at here is whether there was collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government with this data-mining and micro-targeting to voters across the country,â€ he said. â€œI mean there are a lot of experts who are saying that there is no way that this could have been done by the Russians alone without some cooperation from within the Trump campaign.â€
Of course, Ackerman and Clinton could offer no explanation for how this sophisticated, coordinated operation took shape that the Russians â€œmanaged to hack into Clinton campaign Chairman John Podestaâ€™s iPhone and the Democratic National Committeeâ€™s computers but could not figure out on their own how to give what they took to WikiLeaks,â€ Lifezette noted.
Vets of Trumpâ€™s actual campaign operations just shook their heads in amazement, laughing off such a ridiculous conspiracy theory.
â€œWith the exception of our online operations and Facebook operations, there was very little sophistication in any part of the Trump campaign at any time,â€ a former campaign staffer told LifeZette. â€œOur campaign had trouble putting the correct addresses and phone numbers on mailings, let alone running some Tom Clancy-style espionage ring.â€
In fact, during the actual campaign, the Clinton camp regularly dissed the Trump teamâ€™s campaign approach as amateurish, low-tech and decidedly unsophisticated.
Now, suddenly, because Clinton is grasping for yet another excuse (other than to really blame her loss on the fact that she was a lousy candidate) to explain away her loss, the Trump campaign was really hyper-complex and well-coordinated, thanks to â€œThe Russians.â€ (RELATED: Schweizer: Thereâ€™s More Evidence Of Podesta-Clinton Collusion With Russia Than There Ever Was WithÂ Trump)
Well, the poor excuses and blaming everyone else is wearing thin â€” even to those on the Left. CNNÂ correspondent John King lambasted her excuses during a reporterâ€™s roundtable in DC Thursday, saying, â€œYou donâ€™t understand: The Russianâ€™s cloaked Wisconsin,â€ referring to Clintonâ€™s taking the battleground state for granted and not campaigning there until very late in the game.
Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., admits he â€˜loves Hillary,â€™ but that itâ€™s time she and everyone else moved on.
But itâ€™s Hillary, soâ€¦she wonâ€™t.
