Left-wing activist Reverend Jesse Jackson still hasn’t come to terms with Hillary Clinton’s shocking defeat to President Trump during the 2016 election, telling a packed audience that the democrat actually won the presidency before “it was stolen.”
Jackson was speaking before the Annual Conference of his Rainbow PUSH Coalition in Chicago on Thursday when he made the baseless accusation.
The reverend was commenting on the state of the democratic party, and how to forge a pathway forward after a string of special election defeats.
“To have a head of our party, who is sensitive to the plight of working people is the order of this day,” said Jackson. “Don’t forget when you lose you tend to amplify: ‘Would’ve, could’ve, should’ve.’ When you win, you cover up your sins.”
“Don’t let them fool you. We worked last year. We won the election. It was stolen,” he told the crowd.
Jackson didn’t elaborate on whom he believed actually “stole” the election.
Democrats have blamed Hillary’s 2016 defeat on a host of issues, including the FBI investigation of Clinton’s emails, Russia, James Comey, inaccurate polling, and even the Democratic National Committee.
