(Redstate) – The New York Magazine profile of Hillary Clinton is worth reading. The reason being it is a more intimate look into her mindset, which is one of a person who believes she deserved to be elected President and not that it was something to be earned.

Naturally, the piece loads up with quotes from mean guys saying mean things about the Fair Lady with all of the pushback one would expect. Such as:

Later, Amanpour would tell me how surprised she was by the negative reaction. “The idea that she shouldn’t mention the Comey letter when the entire nation and the most respected statisticians are considering its impact is so strange,” she said. “If she were a man, would she be allowed to mention it? As a woman, I am offended by the double standards applied here. Everyone shrieks that Hillary was a bad candidate, but was Trump a good candidate?”

Unfortunately for Amanpour, not a single statistician can connect the Comey letter directly to Clinton’s loss. Nate Silver says he believes it’s possible but only pointed to trends which take place in almost all elections. The bottom line is nobody can prove causation; they can only show correlation. The Comey letter is a crutch, and that should offend Amanpour more than anything else.

Even the author of the piece, Rebecca Traister, doesn’t seem to comprehend why Donald Trump won. Foisting her loss off on the idea people feel threatened by the notion of women in power, she writes:

But postmortems offering rational explanations for how a pussy-grabbing goblin managed to gain the White House over an experienced woman have mostly glossed over one of the well-worn dynamics in play: A competent woman losing a job to an incompetent man is not an anomalous Election Day surprise; it is Tuesday in America.

The “pussy-grabbing goblin” line is precisely how the Clinton campaign went after Donald Trump. The last two months of the campaign, team Clinton decided the best route to go against Trump was to paint him as a knuckle-dragging troglodyte who did not have the necessary experience or mindset to be President. After the first four months of the Trump Train Wreck, it is hard to argue they’re wrong. But people, particularly in the rust belt, were concerned with issues related more to the economy than they were Donald Trump’s personal behavior.
