Things got a little wild at Harvard University. The school’s Kennedy School of Government hosted top officials from both campaigns to do an election post mortem and it was clear that one side hasn’t gotten over their embarrassing and total loss at the hands of a political neophyte with absolutely no ground game. As the Daily Caller reports:
Members of Trump’s campaign team were understandably celebratory, and weren’t shy about giving credit to campaign CEO Steve Bannon, previously the head of news outlet Breitbart. Any credit attributed to Bannon infuriated Clinton communications director Jennifer Palmieri, who choked up multiple times during the session and bluntly accused the campaign of winning with racism.
“If providing a platform for white supremacists makes me a brilliant tactician, I am proud to have lost,” she said, according to The Washington Post. “I would rather lose than win the way you guys did.”
Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway was outraged by Palmieri’s implication.
“Are you gonna look me in the face and say I ran a campaign that was a platform for white supremacists?” she asked.
It got worse after that, with Clinton campaign officials hanging their hat on winning the popular vote, shouting about imaginary what ifs, which, well, here’s the perfect analogy for that sort of crap:
Can’t believe I am still reading about the popular vote. Would be like a football team bragging that they got more yards after losing a game

It’s obvious that these people are still suffering from sort of post-election PTSD. We hope they get the help they need.
