Clinton Continues to Blame Russian Hackers as Her lead in the Polls and Popular Vote Defies Convention; Holds Press Conference at Forest’s Edge
By Robert W. Armijo
With a straight face, the former Democratic Party presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton continued to blame Russian hackers for her loss in her run for the White House 2016.
Hillary Clinton renewed her accusations at a press conference she held outdoors at the edge of a forest where she had been taking walks with her husband after her defeat in November.
“If only the Russians wouldn’t have hacked into the DNC emails and exposed that my nomination as the Democratic Party’s presidential nominee was a foregone conclusion and that Bernie Sanders never had a chance from the get go, I would be standing here before you inside a building as the first woman president-elect,” Hillary Clinton said.
Hillary Clinton then threw on a bright red parka, a deep blue backpack and garbed a walking stick made of White Birch tree she had leaned up against the podium.
“If you will excuse me now,” said Hillary Clinton. “I have a date with Mother nature and Al Gore. He gave me this walking stick. See? Those are his initials.”
Hillary Clinton then raised the stick in the air, proudly pointing to the initials ‘A.G.’ carved on the side.
“A.G. that stands for Al Gore,” said Hillary Clinton. “He’s my friend.”
Former president Bill Clinton then walked behind Hillary and while giving her a pat on the shoulder whispered into her ear, “Come on honey. It’s time to go.”
“Time to go see Al?” Hillary Clinton asked out loud.
Bill then began to walk Hillary off the stage
“Sure,” Bill whispered. “Why not?”
“He’s my pal, you know,” said Hillary Clinton aloud.
”Yeah,” said Bill continuing to whisper. “Sure he is.”
As Hillary Clinton readied to descend the stage, a reporter yelled out, “If the Russians are to blame for your losing the election, how do you account for your lead in the polls before the election and popular vote subsequent to it?!”
Suddenly, Hillary broke free from her husband and dashed back onto the stage.
“What was that!?” said Hillary as she slapped the walking stick in the palm of her hand in a threatening way. “I didn’t catch that. What did you say?”
“Nothing,” said the reporter. “Never mind.”
“Yeah,” said Hillary. “I thought so.”
Once again, Bill gently placed his hand on Hillary’s shoulder, guiding her off the stage like a coach would a prized fighter out of a boxing ring after losing the match.
