In some major league spinning, a top Hillary Clinton aide tried to downplay the significance of Clinton’s monumental loss to Donald Trump by suggesting it really wasn’t all that important to her.
Clinton’s campaign communications director Jennifer Palmieri told CBS News last week that while Clinton was upset about her defeat, she was not too surprised by it, adding that Clinton only ran because she saw herself as a better option than Bernie Sanders.

“I think she’s one of the people who is least surprised that she lost,” Palmieri said.
“Contrary to this view that she held onto this dream of being the first woman president,” she added, “I think she came close to not running in 2016.”
While making such a remarkable comment passes muster in the mainstream media, social media users are a whole other story.
Leading the charge was talk radio host Tammy Bruce:
