HAH! The Crazy Never Stops: John Kerry Says Hillary’s Loss Was Her Own Fault Because She Upset Putin

Former Secretary of State John Kerry told an audience this weekend that Hillary Clinton’s loss was her own fault because she upset Russian leader Vladimir Putin.

Democrats are still running with the conspiracy that Russia stole the election.

The crazy never stops.

The Daily Mail reported:

John Kerry has suggested that Hillary Clinton contributed to her own downfall in the 2016 presidential election by encouraging the Russians to hack America.

The former Secretary of State said that Russian President Vladimir Putin told him he was ‘incensed’ by a speech Clinton gave in 2014 comparing him to Hitler.

Kerry said Clinton’s comments made Putin feel he was under attack and that interfering in the US election was a way to even the score with America.

In an interview at the New York City BookExpo, Kerry also praised President Donald Trump and said that he would ‘applaud’ his engagement with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

But he sharply criticized Trump for pulling of the deal with Iran on nuclear weapons – which Kerry brokered – and said he was ‘deeply, deeply, deeply concerned’ about his presidency.

Kerry made his comments at the major book industry conference while promoting his forthcoming memoir, Every Day Is Extra.

He said that he spent more time with Putin than anyone in President Obama’s administration and that he had personally been in his company for ‘hours’.

‘Putin believed that America and Hillary Clinton and the administration engaged in his election. Our advisor was meeting with people in Moscow and he believed those meetings were stirring up opposition to him,’ Kerry said.

‘On top of that Clinton gave a “very tough speech” at a private fundraiser in California where she compared his annexation in Ukraine to Hitler in the run up to WWII.’

Kerry said: ‘I know personally, because I heard from Putin about it, how incensed he was that his nation, which lost 30 million people fighting Hitler, was likened to him.

‘I’m not excusing anything, let me make that clear, no excuse for what he’s been doing with respect to Ukraine, Crimea, but you have to understand where somebody is coming from’.
