Somehow, it got lost in the shuffle this week that the 2016 election was something Hillary Clinton lost.
It was stolen. It was stolen by James Comey, the Russians, and by the media.

This is exactly right and I endorse this idea entirely. So many people are trying to cover their ass right now that there's little or no chance we're going to get an honest assessment of what happened last year. Hell, will we ever get one?
These same journalists would find fault with Clinton if she had won the Electoral College and won the presidency but lost the popular vote; they would claim that she really "lost" the race and thus has no mandate. Or some such nonsense.
Really, when you get right down to it, we don't even know the whole story yet. The truth is out there, but it's taking a long time to get here.
