While people in “Comey’s Homies” T-shirts were packing into popular D.C. bars Thursday morning to attend watch parties for James Comey’s testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee, Hillary Clinton issued a gentle reminder that her commencement speech at Medgar Evers College in Brooklyn would be streaming online too.
Whichever event viewers chose, the outcome was pretty much the same: there wasn’t much that hadn’t be heard before. While Nate Silver has declared it “painfully obvious” that Comey cost Clinton the election, she was more concerned with taking shots at President Trump.

In case she hadn’t made it clear earlier, Clinton is still bitter over losing the election; to her credit, though, she at least admits that she lost, which a lot of her die-hard supporters just won’t do.

You did not lose Madam President. The election was stolen from you by Trump, Alt Right and Russian President.

Yes, some people insist on addressing as her Madam President. Sorry to break it to everyone, but there was no smoking gun in Comey’s testimony that’s going to force that re-vote some people seem to be counting on.
The thing is, more and more progressives are suggesting that Hillary politely fade away and let some rising stars in the Democrat Party have a shot.
Please give @HillaryClinton some wine and cheese already so she can be done with it.

Yes, just shows how poor of a candidate #CrookedHilary actually was! ?
— Mark (@yourbooyahfan) June 8, 2017
She needs to come to terms with the fact that she was the worst candidate in US history.
— Deplorable Constance (@SWEETPEATIME) June 8, 2017
Hmm….considering she's the worst candidate in decades, it's not surprising.
