Losing 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is reportedly “seething with rage” because she lost to a “soulless manipulator,” a reference to President Donald Trump.
According to Axios, citing Clinton’s friends, the former secretary of state is now “seething with rage and haunted by losing to someone she considers a dumb, soulless manipulator.”

It has been more than six months since Clinton lost to Trump in last year’s presidential election. She mostly kept quiet in the following months and was frequently spotted in public living a normal life. But in the last month or so, Clinton has increased her number of interviews and speaking engagements.
In interviews and while speaking, Clinton refuses to take personal responsibility for her second unsuccessful run at the White House. She blames former FBI Director James Comey, Russia interference, sexism, racism, among other reasons, for her loss. She recently even blamed voter suppression.
But it’s clear Clinton isn’t yet over her loss.
She said earlier in May that if it weren’t for Comey, then she would be president today — not Trump. She was referring to Comey sending Congress a letter less than two weeks before the election informing them that the FBI potentially found new evidence in the criminal investigation against her. And during a commencement speech at Wellesley University on Friday, Clinton continued her line of attack against Trump, cementing her position in “the resistance.”
Still, most say Clinton lost the election because she was a flawed candidate who ran a flawed campaign. After all, it was Clinton’s campaign that chose not to dedicate lots of resources to Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania — three states that she lost and Trump needed to win to become president.
Others simply find Clinton’s anger funny and misplaced:
