One Year Ago Hillary Clinton Became First Losing Presidential Candidate in 50 Years to Not Concede in Public Speech (Video)

Guest post by Joe Hoft

One year ago today Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump waited for the results to the US Presidential election.  It was the most watched and talked about election in US History.  Hillary was planning on becoming the first woman President in US history.

The Empire State Building was bathed in patriotic colors.  Hillary Clinton supporters gathered in New York to celebrate Hillary becoming the first female President of the United States.  At the beginning of the evening on November 8th the Democrats, mainstream media and #NeverTrumpers in the Republican Party all considered Hillary a shoe-in to win the election.  The far-left website Huffington Post predicted a greater than 98% chance of Hillary winning the election –

The New York Times had a Presidential tracker at the beginning of the night that predicted a Hillary win probability of 80% with Donald Trump at only 20%.

As the night went on the unthinkable happened.  The results began turning in Donald Trump’s favor.  State by state a majority of American people voted for Donald Trump.  On the early morning of November 9th, one year ago Donald Trump was declared the winner of the Presidential election.

Hillary supporters were shocked and devastated.  They could not believe their eyes.  Grown men with pink “Hillary” hats cried on national TV.  But their leader Hillary was no where to be found.  Eventually, she sent her creepy Campaign Manager, John Podesta, to her ‘victory’ party to share the news.  He said, “Everybody should head home to get some sleep.  We’ll have more to say tomorrow.”

Hillary eventually did call the Trump campaign and conceded and the next day she did finally give a concession speech.

It is unknown why Hillary did not make a concession speech on the night of the election but she didn’t, and it turned out to be the first time in 50 years that the loser failed to give a concession speech after the Presidential election votes were tallied and after it was more that clear that she lost.  Was she too sick as had been obvious to the readers of this site?  Was she too drunk as it was known that she was a heavy drinker?  Maybe she was just too upset and emotional to do the mature thing?  Was she too busy working on covering up her criminal deeds that she had hoped would disappear forever after her expected win?

No one really knows why Hillary didn’t give a concession speech one year ago today.  But the fact is she didn’t and because of this and other actions since the election, she will go down not only as the first female candidate to win a major political party’s nomination for President, but she will be always remembered as one of the greatest losers in US history.
