Obama Told Hillary She Was Going to Win Night Before the Election

Miss Cleo, he ain’t.

Obama took a hard swing and a miss within 24 hours of the 2016 presidential election, predicting an effective third term was in the making and telling his minion, Hillary Clinton, “you’ve got this.”

The former president’s prediction was epically, historically wrong, and our nation is better for it.

The reassuring words were yet another revelation from Hillary’s soon to be released biographical autopsy on the election, titled “What Happened.”

“You’ve got this,” Obama said to Clinton according to an excerpt. “I’m so proud of you.”

 

The exchange occurred at a campaign rally in Philadelphia the night before American went to the polls and handed Hillary her embarrassing loss.

Within 24-hours, Obama went from Peptalker-in-Chief to counseling Clinton on the need to accept defeat, something she was hesitant to do.

The Washington Post revealed the election night exchange based on a book called “Shattered.”

White House political director David Simas called Hillary’s campaign headquarters and relayed that “POTUS doesn’t think it’s wise to drag this out.”

It was shortly after that, President Obama himself called and said “You need to concede,” a vastly different message than the one he conveyed a night earlier.

“Congratulations, Donald,” Clinton said, eventually making the conciliatory phone call, something she now describes as “perfectly nice and weirdly ordinary, like calling a neighbor to say you can’t make it to his barbecue.”

 

While the phone call had been ordinary, the Democrat’s reaction to the events did not feel the same. And could you blame her?

“I was numb,” she wrote. “It was all so shocking.”

Equally as shocking, and in stark contrast to Obama’s reassurances, is the fact that husband Bill Clinton apparently provided Hillary with blunt honesty – perhaps a first in their marriage.

“You might lose,” Bill reportedly told Hillary according to reports by the National Enquirer.

She might have, but in doing so America won.
