Donald Trump’s campaign manager unleashed biting criticism at her Hillary Clinton counterparts – and Clinton herself – on Friday as she blamed ‘election deniers’ for refusing to take responsibility for the Democrat’s historic loss last month.

‘A little self-awareness would do for a team that is blaming everybody but themselves for this,’ she said on ‘Fox & Friends.’
‘It’s Bernie Sanders’ fault. How dare he run? The guy won 22 states, folks, and over 13 million votes. That ain’t nothing. It’s the alt-right’s fault. It’s – what’s the other one? – Oh! It’s fake news’s fault,’ she mocked. ‘It’s Russian interference. It’s Jim Comey, of course, the biggest scapegoat of all.’
‘How about you had no message, and people just didn’t cotton to your candidate?’
Clinton communications director Jennifer Palmieri blasted Conway and the Trump team on Wednesday in a Washington Post essay that appears to have prompted the stinging response.
‘I don’t know whether the Trump campaign needed to give a platform to white supremacists to win,’ Palmieri wrote. ‘But the campaign clearly did, and it had the effect of empowering the white-nationalist movement.’
And Clinton lashed out against the supposed ‘fake news’ phenomenon a day later, saying that ‘it’s now clear that so-called fake news can have real-world consequences.’
She was referring to the ‘pizzagate’ episode, a conspiracy theory centered on false allegations that Clinton and her campaign chairman John Podesta presided over a child-sex ring in the basement of a Washington, D.C. pizza parlor.
‘Lives are at risk, lives of ordinary people,’ Clinton said in reaction to the arrest of a gunman at the restaurant on Sunday.
Conway called the remarks ‘remarkable.’
‘If she’s trying to make a nexus between those statements and her electoral loss, then I’m almost at a loss for words, maybe for the first time in awhile,’ she said Friday.
‘I don’t know what her message was to America, other than “I’m not Donald Trump and you shouldn’t vote for him.” I don’t know what her message was to the working-class voters that we captured and the union households we carried in some places by 2-to-1. I don’t know what her message was to America’s women, where she only got 55 or 56 per cent of the vote, and as the first female presidential nominee from a major party.’
‘The most fake piece of news I heard all along up until Election Day, and still hear from some people, is that Donald Trump couldn’t win. How’s that for fake news, misleading news?’ Conway asked.
