New York Times reporter Yamiche Alcindor said Wednesday that she knows people who are “still in therapy” over former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s election loss to President Donald Trump.
The “Morning Joe” panel was discussing Hillary Clinton’s new book, “What Happened” when Alcindor started listing those who were still having trouble accepting November’s election results.
“I think the intention of the book was two things. One it was to really, I think just vent and get it out there. Because there are so many people like Hillary Clinton who are still writing about this, who are still thinking about this, who are still in therapy, frankly. Sources I know who are still really upset about the election,” she said.
Alcindor also said that Clinton represents everything wrong with the Democratic Party, and said voters are still “reeling” from Trump’s historic upset.
“Hillary Clinton is the embodiment of all that’s still going wrong with the Democratic Party, and what they need to get through. So I think Hillary Clinton, I don’t think is opening any new wounds here,” she said. “Anyone who interviews Democrats, anyone who’s talking to activists on the ground, progressives and elected officials understand that people are still in some ways really reeling from the 2016 election. And really do not know how to go forward.”
