Kellyanne Conway, campaign manager of President-elect Donald Trump, says Hillary Clinton has only one person to blame for her devastating election loss to Trump: herself.
Conway, speaking on NBC's "Meet the Press" Sunday, praised Clinton for running for president, but advised her to look inward for the reason why she lost.
"I think it’s unfortunate for Secretary Clinton, who is a woman of enormous gifts and talents. And she should be commended for putting herself out there and running for president twice," Conway began. "I just can’t believe it’s always somebody else’s fault."
"Sometimes you just have to take a look in the mirror and reflect on what went wrong," she explained.
Clinton, in a call with donors Saturday, blamed FBI Director James Comey and his two letters to Congress about his bureau's investigation into her use of a private email server for her Election Day loss. After Comey's second letter, Clinton said her support tanked.
According to Conway, it wasn't the letters that helped Trump win. In fact, Conway said their internal polling showed the race continued to tighten before Comey's letters and all the way up to Election Day.
Conway went on to explain that it was hypocritical of Clinton to say prior to the election that Americans had already made up their minds about the email scandal, then say after the election that Comey's letters at all had anything to do with her loss.
"What about the fact that they just got it wrong?” Conway said. "What about the fact they weren’t in touch with Americans, and the culture zeitgeist, and what motivates many Americans?"
"They misread America. They did not have her in red states," she concluded. "They were pretending they were going to turn red blue. They were pretending."
