Desperate to carve a path out of the wilderness, Democrats are now pushing the narrative Hillary Clinton was “least surprised” by her loss to Donald Trump.
Granny’s Communications Director Jennifer Palmieri, told CBS News White House Correspondent Major Garret “…she had held onto this dream of being the first woman president, I think she came close to not running. She went in with a lot of reluctance because she knew what would happen with the press coverage of her. She knew what Republicans do to her. I think she’s one of the people who’s least surprised that she lost.”
Palmieri continued, “She was less surprised of the rise of Senator Sanders than others and Trump’s win.”
Also discussed was the controversy surrounding Clinton’s “basket of deplorables” comment which resulted in significant backlash in the media and from Republicans. “She screwed up, and she realized it that night,” Palmieri said. “There’s no question it did real damage.”
