David Axelrod offered a stinging rebuke on Wednesday to Hillary Clinton’s assertion that her presidential campaign failed because of FBI Director James B. Comey and Russian hackers.

The real reason. Or one of the real reasons anyway.

Clinton lost because she hadn’t been forthright with the server/email issue, had cashed in in the crassest and cronyist of ways, was seen as having run a rigged primary, and then went and insulted a vast swathe of the American electorate with her “deplorables” statement right at the end. That and a boneheaded Midwest strategy.

Comey isn’t the reason she blew it. Hillary Clinton is the reason Hillary Clinton blew it. And for the record Trump is right on in the below tweet.

CNN’s “New Day” called in former President Barack Obama’s adviser to discuss Mrs. Clinton’s news conference on Tuesday, which framed her failed presidential bid as the result of forces beyond her control. Mr. Axelrod told co-hosts Chris Cuomo and Alisyn Camerota that he was baffled why she would continue to revisit the issue since “it takes a lot of work to lose to Donald Trump.”

“Jim Comey didn’t tell her not to campaign in Wisconsin after the convention,” said Mr. Obama’s winning campaign strategist. “Jim Comey didn’t say, ‘Don’t put any resources into Michigan until the final week of the campaign.’ One of the things that hindered her in the campaign was a sense that she never fully was willing to take responsibility for her mistakes, particularly that server.”
