Wild: Clinton team blames Obama for election loss

This may be the wildest thing we’ve read all week, and it’s only Wednesday. To sum it up: Hillary Clinton’s failed campaign team reportedly blames former President Barack Obama for their stunning loss last November, arguing that his White House didn’t do enough to combat the negative press resulting from her email scandal and from the allegedly Russian-led hacks. We have heard from numerous, anguished people in Clinton-land blaming Obama – more than Putin, FBI Director James Comey or, um, Hillary herself – for the defeat, Axios’ Mike Allen reported Tuesday. The reported explained: Clintonites feel that if Obama had come out early and forcefully with evidence of Russian interference in the campaign, and perhaps quicker sanctions, she might be president today. His caution, they argue, allowed the public to have a foggy sense of clear, calculated, consistent Russian meddling in the campaign. We can’t stress enough how upset some Democrats are. It’s testing relationships between Clinton and Obama loyalists. It’s making efforts to form a new Trump opposition coalition harder.
