WOW! Just when you thought Bill Clinton had lost it, he gives a shockingly clear explanation for why his wife, Hillary Clinton, lost the 2016 presidential election to Donald Trump.
Hillary has traveled the world tossing blame on a number of factors for her loss in the election of 2016. It’s been an embarrassing roadshow of whining and blaming by Hillary. None of her excuses passed the smell test because she always pointed outward to Russia, Facebook and even women listening to their husbands. What’s strange is that we finally got the key to the loss from Bill! We think he’s on to something…
Bill Clinton suggested in a Thursday story about Osama bin Laden that it might have been a much simpler reason: a lack of respect for her enemy.
“One of the things that gets you into bad decision-making is dehumanizing and underestimating your adversaries,” Clinton said Thursday during an event for his soon-to-be-released novel.”Better to respect your adversaries if you want to defeat him.”

CLINTON THEN TOLD THIS ODD STORY ABOUT OSAMA BIN LADEN:
He recalled a 2000 transition period interview with former President George W. Bush in which he said, “I know you think that Saddam Hussein is the biggest security threat facing this country, but I promise you Osama bin Laden is.”
“I said, ‘This guy is so smart, and he comes from the richest family in Saudi Arabia,'” Clinton continued. “He could have lived a cushy and hypocritical life, but instead he’s living in a cave somewhere and has to have dialysis, so you know he believes in what he’s doing.”
“Better to respect your adversaries if you want to defeat him.”
