Hillary Clinton was besieged by crybaby fans when she attended Senator Harry Reid’s retirement party on Capitol Hill Thursday.
When the failed two-time presidential candidate left the event, Clinton was mobbed by sobbing women in a video posted by NBC’s Monica Alba.
“Thank you so much,” one distraught woman brayed as she sniveled uncontrollably.

The reaction on Twitter from both sides was priceless, as Twitchy reported.
Some Clinton supporters whined that they, too, were left in tears upon seeing their comrades crying.
@AquaLunaSAT ugh this makes me sad – I know HRC must feel like she let us and the world down. But I think we let her down ❤️️😢

One person even said he has been crying every day since Clinton lost, and expects to cry more over the next four years of Donald Trump’s presidency.
I don't blame them for sobbing. I cry about it everyday myself.
And expect the grief will only get worse over 4 yrs

Of course, Trump supporters had a totally different reaction. Most were amused by the histrionics.

The event was Clinton’s first political appearance since losing the election.
During a brief speech at Reid’s party, Hillary took time to comment on the “epidemic” of fake news (i.e., negative news about her):
“Let me just mention briefly one threat in particular that should concern all Americans, Democrats, Republicans and Independents alike and especially those that serve in our Congress: the epidemic of malicious, fake news and false propaganda that flooded social media over the past year.”
Not surprisingly, Clinton didn’t mention the numerous “fake news” stories that favored her:
Nor did Clinton reference the numerous Wikileaks emails that showed her aides colluding with liberal mainstream media to shape positive news coverage of her campaign.
Hillary also did not mention the fake news she herself pushed when she was Secretary of State:
Hillary Clinton who told the families of dead Benghazi victims that a video at fault now decries "fake news." https://t.co/OmMgS9Ig55
