We haven’t heard from Hillary CLinton this morning. Her smug, liberal supporters expected a massive win, and left in tears.
At the “victory” party she never addressed the crowd. Instead, she sent out her campaign chairman John Podesta – to tell the crowd that they aren’t giving up and to go to sleep.
Here is what happened:
“Several states are too close to call so we aren’t going to have anything more to say tonight. Everybody should head home and get some sleep. We’ll have more to say tomorrow.”
“I want every person in this hall, and across the country, to know that your voices and your enthusiasm means so much,” he continued.
“We are so proud of you, and we are so proud of her. She’s done an amazing job and she is not done yet. So thank you for being with her — she has always been with you.”
At this point, Podesta and political observers knew this was a lie:

Then, before 3am, Clinton privately called Donald Trump to concede the race.
Here is the last Tweet from Hillary Clinton’s official account:
This team has so much to be proud of. Whatever happens tonight, thank you for everything. pic.twitter.com/x13iWOzILL

As The Examiner reported:
The evening began joyfully enough, with Clinton supporters dancing and cheering along to early election results as they were displayed on a massive screen hanging above the arena. But as the night wore on, and as GOP nominee Donald Trump claimed one electoral victory after another, the mood in the glass ceiling’d arena turned grim.
“Absolute disbelief,” one supporter from New York, Dehmar, told the Washington Examiner. “I dob’t think most of us here even considered this to be a possibility. I don’t want to say it was in the bag, but I don’t think any of us could imagine what a world would be like with Donald Trump as our president.”
As a writer for NBC noted, Hillary’s actions were cowardly:
Clinton not giving a public concession speech/address to her supporters is one of the more cowardly political acts I can recall.

For Hillary Clinton, her shameful last act in politics is to refuse an opportunity to address her supporters.
Good riddance, Hillary. You won’t be missed.
