Fmr Obama adviser David Axelrod has prickly advice for Hillary Clinton

The chief strategist for former President Obama, David Axelrod, said that Hilary Clinton is still doing the same things that cost her the presidential election.

Axelrod conceded that Clinton had a “legitimate beef” with FBI Director James Comey announcing a new investigation into her private email server days before the election, but said the onus is on her for losing the election.

“Jim Comey didn’t tell her not to campaign in Wisconsin after the convention,” he said on CNN’s “New Day” on Wednesday. “Jim Comey didn’t say ‘don’t put any resources into Michigan until the final week of the campaign.'”

The comments came the day after Clinton again blamed Comey and Wikileaks for her defeat while speaking to CNN’s Christiane Amanpour in Manhattan.

“One of the things that hindered her in the campaign was a sense that she never fully was willing to take responsibility for her mistakes, particularly that server,” Axelrod said. “And, you know, so if I were her, if I were advising her, I would say don’t do this, don’t go back and appear as if you are shifting responsibility off of yourself. She said the words I am responsible, but everything else suggested she doesn’t feel that way and I don’t think that helps her in the long-run. So if I were her, I would move on.”

Axelrod’s admonishment of Clinton drew anger from liberals on social media.

Why would he? His candidate won.

Unless you think Russia and James Comey were responsible for that too.
