Senator Schumer unloaded on Hillary Clinton for her surprise defeat in the 2016 general election over the weekend, telling the former Secretary of State to stop blaming Russia and start blaming herself for the stunning loss to Donald Trump.

“Zero Evidence”

“When you lose to somebody who has 40 percent popularity, you don’t blame other things — Comey, Russia — you blame yourself,” Schumer told the Washington Post. “So what did we do wrong? People didn’t know what we stood for, just that we were against Trump. And still believe that.”

According to, the President praised Schumer’s comments on social media Monday morning, saying the Senator was finally admitting that “after 1 year of investigation” democrats have found “Zero evidence.”


The Senate Minority Leader is referring to Hillary Clinton’s repeated assertions that outside factors cost her the White House; blaming her defeat on the FBI, James Comey, the Democratic National Committee, sexism, and of course, Russia.
