Hillary Clinton has been called many things — self-aware is not one of them. After dozens of interviews and speeches lamenting her loss to Donald Trump in 2016, going so far as to claim Trump had somehow colluded with Russian government officials to manipulate the election in his favor, she now has the audacity to rebuke former President Donald Trump for not graciously accepting his defeat in 2020.
Hillary Clinton’s barb came Tuesday after the partisan January 6 Committee investigating the protest and breach of the Capitol highlighted how Trump maintained the election was “stolen from him” after several of his advisors told him he had lost the election.
Clinton alleges Trump’s questions about the integrity of the election process amount to “criminal conspiracy.” She tweeted:
“The latest January 6 hearings show that Trump knew he lost the election. His own people told him he’d lost the election. He then chose to wage a criminal conspiracy to overturn the results and prevent the peaceful transfer of power for the first time in American history.”
Conservatives on Twitter took issue with Clinton’s comments, rebuking her for repeatedly promoting the now-debunked narrative that Trump colluded with Russia to win the 2016 election.
Fox News captured some of the replies.
Washington Times columnist Tim Young blasted Clinton, replying to her tweet: “Oh, like how you knew you lost the election in 2016 and went on to push the Russian Collusion lie?”
Mocking an embarrassing premature “Happy birthday to this future president” tweet Clinton posted to herself just ahead of the 2016 election, on Tuesday political writer Michael Malice posted a picture of Trump with the caption, “Happy birthday to this future president.” Tuesday was Trump’s birthday.
Conservative Twitter user Nick V. Flor tweeted, “Alex, I’ll take ‘What is Russian Collusion’ for $100.”
Conservative Curt Schilling, a former MLB pitcher wrote: “You, honestly, need to STFU and thank the Lord you are not in jail. You and your teenage groping mutant are one of the many reasons legal American citizens despise DC. You two represent ALL that is wrong with the left and with politics.”
Monica Crowley, a conservative podcast host wrote, “The High Priestess of Projection accuses Trump of everything she did.”
Antonio Pitocco, a Republican congressional candidate from Maryland, tweeted: “I’m old enough to remember when Hillary Clinton knew she lost the election in 2016 but went around the country telling everyone the election was stolen from her.”
