White House spokesman Sean Spicer ripped Hillary Clinton’s claim that she would have won the 2016 election if it had been held on Oct. 27, saying she did not get to determine election dates and that it was “somewhat sad” to still be litigating why Donald Trump won.
Clinton spoke at length Tuesday in New York City about the presidential race. While she claimed to take personal responsibility for her surprising loss to Trump, she also cast blame on FBI Director James Comey’s Oct. 28 letter to Congress about a renewal of her private email investigation, as well as the roles of WikiLeaks and Russian interference in the election.
Asked about her remarks, Spicer drew parallels between Trump’s victory and that of the Super Bowl champion New England Patriots. They rallied from a 25-point deficit in the third quarter of this year’s Super Bowl to defeat the Atlanta Falcons in overtime, 34-28.
