Clinton: Losing to Trump was 'a crushing, devastating blow'

Palestinian police officer in Bethlehem as US President Donald Trump visits Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas at the Presidential Palace Clinton: Losing to Trump was 'a crushing, devastating blow'

"If the election had been on October 27, I would be your president", Clinton said earlier this month, referring to Comey sending a letter to Congress informing them of potential new evidence in the bureau's investigation of her.

"History repeats itself" may be one of the most overused clichés in the English language, but these days it definitely applies.

In a fiery commencement speech at her alma mater of Wellesley College on Friday, Clinton went after President Donald Trump and the controversies that are swirling around him, comparing his imperiled presidency to that of Richard Nixon's.

Clinton, however, did not cite any evidence to back her claims that voter suppression caused her to lose more than 27,000 votes in Wisconsin - the margin of votes between Clinton and Trump in Wisconsin last November.

Clinton also painted a portrait of a political environment where some are hostile to the fundamentals of an enlightened society and are engaged in "full-fledged assault on truth and reason". "She started the speech actually with a coughing fit that required them to bring her water and a lozenge". She also addressed graduates in 1992 as first lady and as a student speaker at her own commencement. At the curtain call, actors pointed to her and touched their hearts. Still, many note that she seems in loss to have touched a chord with her base — particularly younger women — that she hadn't before.

"When Elizabeth Warren was making those promises while running for Senate, there were scads of stories that she was a bad candidate, she wasn't inspiring, she wasn't connecting with people, she wasn't a natural on the stump", Traister said. But "having said that, I think what's going on now is an effort to derail and bury the Russian Federation inquiry, and I think that's bad for our country".

On the bombing investigation Trump said: "British Prime Minister May was very angry that the info the United Kingdom gave to USA about Manchester was leaked".

"In the years to come, there will trolls galore, online and in-person, eager to tell you that you don't have anything worthwhile to say or anything meaningful to contribute, they may even call you a nasty woman", she said. "I don't think anger's a strategy". "She's coming out to speak more fully and with more freedom". "For me, yeah." She pauses. He sacked his attorney general in a move some have compared to Trump's firing of Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey, who was investigating Russian interference in last year's election and possible collusion by Trump's campaign.

Rutgers' Walsh feels that Clinton could play a crucial role in getting a new generation of women, who are responding to her now as they perhaps never did, to enter politics. "The New York Times" Glenn Thrush, who has reported on Clinton for years, tweeted "mea culpa-not so much", suggesting that the former candidate "blames everyone but self". I just thought we had to get through this with a level of dignity and integrity, and there'd be plenty of time to try to figure out what went wrong and what we could have done differently, but for that moment we just had to stick to the ritualistic process: Okay, when I was sure, I have to call Trump.

"I think she owes us nothing and we owe her everything — especially gratitude, respect and the right to be free".
