Donald Trump corrects Bill Clinton on two accounts and it’s embarrassing

Donald Trump corrected the record — Bill Clinton called him, not the other way around.

Former President Bill Clinton told a group, which included the editor of a Westchester County newspaper, that the president-elect called him the day after the election, adding that it had been strangely cordial, “like it was 15 years ago,” when the two families socialized.

Bill Clinton’s ‘angry white male’ slander drew plenty of fire, but Ann Coulter’s response won the internet

Clinton also mocked Trump in the piece. “He doesn’t know much,” Clinton told the bookstore crowd, Record-Review, a small weekly publication, reported. “One thing he does know is how to get angry, white men to vote for him.”

After hearing the remark, Trump fired back with a two-tweet response, correcting not only who initiated the call, but also why Clinton lost.

Republican strategist and Fox News contributor Sean Spicer agreed with Trump’s assessment on “Fox & Friends” Tuesday.

“They thought this was going to be a coronation of Hillary Clinton,” he said. “They had fireworks all ready to go on the Hudson. Then they lost; they were shocked.

“They’re going in the wrong direction. I do think at some point they need to stop, look in the mirror, face reality, understand that it was their campaign, their message, their candidate that was the problem.”

On Monday, the former president again brought up his wife’s popular vote win, in an apparent effort to delegitimize Trump’s victory, according to Rep. Chris Collins.

“Just yesterday, Bill Clinton, as he was casting his Electoral College vote for his wife, went out again and said, ‘Let’s remember Hillary Clinton won the popular vote.’ So Bill Clinton continues to be one of those people who just doesn’t want to let go, wants to refer to Donald Trump as the Electoral College president,” the New York Republican said, according to Politico.

“So, you know, I thought that was totally inappropriate by former President Clinton to again kind of gin up the Democrats that to claim Donald Trump is not the legitimate president-elect of the United States.”

Others agreed, calling Clinton’s remarks just the latest in a long string of excuses the Clinton camp has used to explain the former secretary of state’s loss.

Time to add “angry white men” to the wheel of misfortune.
