“Hillary Claims Are ‘F**king Bulls**t”
In her latest round of excuses for losing this week, Hillary Clinton laid blame at the feet of the Democratic National Committee. People at the DNC are not happy about it and are pushing back.

DNC Data Director: Hillary Claims Are ‘F**king Bulls**t’
The former director of data science at the Democratic National Committee blasted Hillary Clinton on Twitter after she tried to blame the DNC for her electoral defeat.
Clinton claimed Wednesday that the DNC fell far behind the RNC in terms of voter and data analysis, saying the DNC’s data was “mediocre to poor, nonexistent, wrong.”
“I had to inject money into it,” she said.
Andrew Therriault, the former director of data science for the DNC, called those claims “fucking bullshit.”
“DNC data folks: today’s accusations are fucking bullshit, and I hope you understand the good you did despite that nonsense,” he tweeted.
Aaron Blake of the Washington Post has more including a tweet which has screen caps of Therriault’s now deleted tweets:
Ex-DNC aide hits back hard at Clinton, says her campaign ignored data on Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin
Hillary Clinton has found plenty of non-Hillary Clinton things to blame for her 2016 loss, including Russia, James B. Comey, debate moderators and misogyny. But her decision Wednesday to add the Democratic National Committee to that list is predictably proving pretty sensitive inside her own party.
A top former DNC aide tweeted overnight that Clinton’s allegations were “f‑‑‑ing bulls‑‑‑” and even suggested that the Clinton campaign ignored its warnings about how competitive Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin were. Those three states proved decisive for President Trump and, especially in the case of Michigan and Wisconsin, were neglected by the Clinton campaign.
In a Wednesday appearance at Recode’s Code Conference in California, Clinton pointed to the DNC’s data deficit when she became the Democratic nominee.
“I set up my campaign and we have our own data operation. I get the nomination. So I’m now the nominee of the Democratic Party. I inherit nothing from the Democratic Party,” Clinton said, according to a transcript. “I mean it was bankrupt, it was on the verge of insolvency, its data was mediocre to poor, nonexistent, wrong. I had to inject money into it — the DNC — to keep it going.”

If you can believe it, even CNN reported on this. Eric Bradner has the story:
Democrats to Clinton: The DNC’s data was fine — you just used it wrong
Democratic data gurus are lashing out at Hillary Clinton after she complained publicly that her campaign was hamstrung by a party that had out-of-date information on individual voters…
David Radloff, the co-founder of the Democratic data and analytics firm Clarity Campaign Labs, tweeted: “Used DNC data on numerous campaigns this year, well managed, efficient, accurate. Real question is who’s feeding Clinton bad info and why??”
John Hagner, a partner at Clarity, added: “I worked with DNC data every day last cycle, on winning Gov races. It was accurate and up-to-date and I’m grateful for their hard work.”
Many Democrats noted that Clinton — just like her opponent Bernie Sanders — had access to the DNC’s data from the outset of her campaign. Therefore, they said, if there was trouble with the data, her staff would have known long before she won the Democratic presidential nomination.
Hillary Clinton simply refuses to accept what most people can see plainly. She was a terrible candidate who ran an awful campaign with no real message. She also represented the status quo at a time when people wanted real change.DONATE
