Kellyanne Conway once again showed she’s the master of the epic smackdown.
In a fiery post-election forum at Harvard University, Conway destroyed the sore-loser aides of Hillary Clinton‘s second failed presidential run by stating the obvious: We won. Now get over it.
“Guys, I can tell you are angry. But, wow,” Conway told Team Clinton. “Hashtag, he’s your president. How’s that? Will you ever accept the election results?”
Postmortem sessions have taken place after every election since 1972.
While the panel discussions featuring members of both the winning and losing camps are usually civil, the one between Team Clinton and Team Trump erupted into a shouting match, the Washington Post reported.
Things got especially heated after Clinton aides accused Conway of running a platform based on white supremacy.

“Do you think I ran a campaign where white supremacists had a platform?” Conway asked.
Clinton communications director Jennifer Palmieri replied: “You did, Kellyanne. If providing a platform for white supremacists makes me a brilliant tactician, I am proud to have lost. I would rather lose than win the way you guys did.”
“No you wouldn’t,” Conway shot back.
Despite Palmieri’s absurd claim, many people who voted for Trump this election cycle had previously supported President Obama.
Donald Trump won longtime “blue states” like Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania — states that all voted for Obama in 2008 and 2012. That doesn’t exactly jibe with Team Clinton’s “white supremacy” narrative, does it?
Conway pointed out that Team Clinton lost because Hillary was a terrible, scandal-plagued candidate who failed to connect to the common voter.
“Do you think you could have just had a decent message for white working-class voters?” Conway asked. “How about, ‘It’s Hillary Clinton, she doesn’t connect with people?’ How about, ‘They have nothing in common with her?’ How about, ‘She doesn’t have an economic message?’”
Clinton aides Robby Mook and Joel Benenson snarked that Clinton won the popular vote — a claim Trump challenged when he said he won the popular vote if you exclude the millions of illegals who voted for Hillary.
Trump’s contention has been backed up by voter advocacy group True the Vote:
Conway also reminded Team Clinton that the presidency is based on ELECTORAL votes, and that had popular votes been the way to win, Trump would have campaigned differently.
Conway concluded by saying: “Hey guys, we won. There’s no need to respond … You guys are bitter. We are being very gracious. You’re bitter.”
Conway went on “Fox & Friends” to discuss how the sour grapes ? ? at Team Clinton took vicious personal swipes at her:
