Democrats are doubling down on one of their favorite political strategies — blame sexism and misogyny when they lose a political battle.
On Tuesday, twice failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said that “hatred of women played a role” in her election loss.
“Did misogyny also play a role?” asked Christiane Amanpour during a Women for Women event in New York. “Yes, I do think it played a role,” Clinton said.

Echoing Clinton’s refusal to accept any blame personally, Sen. Elizabeth Warren suggested on Wednesday that there may “never be another male president again” if Trump’s remaining time in office are similar to his first 100 days.
Speaking at the EMILY’s List gala in Washington, D.C., Warren claimed there is an endless supply of “bad news” that will continue to pour out of Trump’s White House.
“The way that things are going, If the next three years and 261 days are like Donald Trump’s first 100 days, I wonder if America will ever be ready for a male president again.”
“Men like Donald Trump come to power when their countries are already deep in trouble,” Warren said, suggesting that people from other countries across the world are now losing hope for a better future under president Trump.
Hmm? That political strategy sounds a lot like setting the stage for election 2020. Of course, for now Warren denies she’ll run and Hillary may never stop, so who knows? But, leave it to the Dems for their never-ending pursuit of identity politics and strategizing.
Even though Trump’s position on working to fix the “rigged game” that hampers women and families has been made clear, Warren claims she’s not buying it.
“Talk is cheap. He is president and now what matters is what he does,” she said.
Warren was a strong supporter of Clinton during the 2016 presidential election as they teamed up to convince the country Trump would be terrible for women, citing his “nasty women” comments that he hurled at Clinton during a presidential debate.
“We nasty women are going to march our nasty feet to cast our nasty votes to get you out of our lives forever,” Warren said in October during a campaign rally.
Users across Twitter were ruthless in their responses to Clinton and Warren after blaming misogyny for all of their problems:

Even CNN joined in and made a few jokes about the excuses coming from Democrats.
