When millionaires and billionaires give you loads of money to make you a president, and then you fail, there comes a time for comeuppance.
For Hillary Clinton and her team that time was Thursday night.
A dejected, defeated and glum looking former Democrat presidential candidate strolled into the famous Plaza Hotel in New York City, with her husband former President Bill Clinton, running mate Tim Kaine, daughter Chelsea Clinton, son-in-law Marc Mezvinsky and campaign manager John Podesta, to explain to elite donors why their cash was not enough to defeat the will of the American people.

.@ChristiChat Seriously- it looks as if she's going to a funeral, not a party. This must be the human side of Hillary never revealed. LOL

Somehow, Hillary made it through the night.
Her explanation to her donors was that she lost to President-elect Donald Trump because Russian President Vladimir Putin doesn’t like her.
Thank you @hillaryclinton for everything
Standing before the elitists who funded her campaign she said that Russia’s hack of the DNC emails and leaking them to Wikileaks, something that Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has vehemently denied, occurred because of an old feud between her and Putin.
She did not mention Trump by name according to sources who were present but did state she was happy to have stood up for democracy during the 2011 Russian parliamentary elections in 2011, which she said is where Putin’s grudge began.
Very cool night… Got to personally thank @hillaryclinton for her incredible campaign (she hugged me and said “keep fighting!”) and @myersnyc snapped this ? of me with her husband ??♂️.
According to a donor who was present, Clinton called the reports of Russian involvement in the hack an “attack on our national security and an attack on our democracy,” according to CNN.
Right. Because not accepting the results of an election only became a danger to democracy after she lost.
