President Donald Trump seemed to take notice of what Hillary Clinton told Anderson Cooper Wednesday, and took to Twitter to lash back.
Clinton appeared on Anderson Cooper Wednesday to speak on a variety of reasons for why she lost the election.
Trump returned to using the ‘Crooked’ modifier in reference to his ex opponent, tweeting: ‘Crooked Hillary Clinton blames everybody (and every thing) but herself for her election loss. She lost the debates and lost her direction!’
Trump seemed to notice Clinton was on her book tour where she is promoting her book What Happened about why she lost the election
Trump criticized the amount of money Hillary Clinton spend during her presidential run
He tweeted at 9.47pm, almost 50 minutes after the show ended and around when articles and tweets about it started showing up recapping it online.
Five minutes later, Trump went back on Twitter and said: ‘The “deplorables” came back to haunt Hillary. They expressed their feelings loud and clear. She spent big money but, in the end, had no game!’
This time he blasted Clinton for the amount of money she spent on her campaign. She shelled out twice as much as Trump, according to CNBC.
Clinton defended her use of the word deplorables earlier this week. Trump’s base has reclaimed it as a positive term.
The former first lady told the CNN host she didn’t offer ‘absolution’ for people who did not vote for her but are complaining now.
The former secretary of state also called to abolish the Electoral College which Trump won and she lost. However, Clinton won the popular vote by 3 million.
Clinton has spoken about many reasons why she believes she lost the election to Trump. She also called for abolishing the Electoral College in the interview on CNN
She also used her platform Wednesday to call our former FBI director James Comey, saying he played a big part in Trump’s win.
She said October 28, the day he reopened the investigation, was the day she lost the election.
Clinton said: ‘He, I think, forever changed history.’
Comey has said he felt ‘mildly nauseous’ to think he may have played a part in influencing the election by announcing the reopened investigation into Clinton’s emails in October.
She also spoke about how sexism may have played a factor in her stunning loss last November.
She told Cooper: ‘If we don’t confront [sexism], there could be a big backlash that will undermine a lot of young women and their futures.’
