There’s an old saying about politicians: that you can tell they are lying if their lips are moving.
But one time they are likely to be more honest is when they are discussing how to win elections.
And Democrat Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer just let something very big slip when talking about last year’s election.
He doesn’t think Russia is to blame for the Democrats’ loss.
“When you lose to somebody who has 40 percent popularity, you don’t blame other things — Comey, Russia — you blame yourself,”
Schumer explained to the Washington Post, in an apparent contradiction of the Democratic Party narrative on Russia to date.
In fact, he thinks that Hillary Clinton needs to take responsibility for the crushing election loss in 2016. He even said that the Democrats need to find something to stand for, instead of just opposing Trump on everything.
“So what did we do wrong? People didn’t know what we stood for, just that we were against Trump. And [people] still believe that… we were too cautious, we were too namby-pamby”
Our President heartily agreed with Schumer:
After 1 year of investigation with Zero evidence being found, Chuck Schumer just stated that "Democrats should blame ourselves,not Russia."
