Oprah Winfrey brought the house down among the celeb elite at the Golden Globe Awards on Sunday night, and her message was compared to Hillary Clinton:
Analysis: At Golden Globes, Oprah delivered the kind of inspirational and aspirational message that Hillary Clinton had trouble hammering home in 2016 presidential election. https://t.co/PLOlv0VnSm

Former Clinton campaign staffer Jennifer Palmieri tried to explain the difference:
Friends – that’s because you didn’t believed Trump could win, so HRC’s aspirational contrasting message didn’t hit quite the way Oprah’s did. Oprah offered a path away from dark message we hear from the actual sitting POTUS. You all thot HRC was just scaring everyone. https://t.co/8BkcSWJyJc

That, or too many voters thought Hillary was a lying, unlikable hypocrite:
HRC couldn't deliver it b/c she wouldn't address charges of corruption & it smacked of elitism – it did not ring true to many from her – right or wrong. She/Foundation raked in millions – looked terrible even if it wasn't. & She could not say "me too" because she defended Bill.

Self-awareness level: ZERO:
who is she kidding she never thought HRC would lose, they thought they had it in the bag,

Notice though how everybody else was blamed for election over-confidence except Team Hillary.
