In an on-stage interview at the 2017 Code Conference on Wednesday, twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton went full Alex Jones conspiracy theorist on all the nefarious factors that stole the election from her (none of which included her campaign utterly neglecting the Rust Belt states that ultimately cost her the presidency).

The most important factor, of course, was the Russia-Trump Collusion, for which there is still no evidence despite the Left’s months-long concerted effort to dig up something, anything to prove it.

While Clinton repeatedly returned to RussiaTrump, she also expounded on a few more of the insidious players who thwarted her presidential dream, including the mainstream media, the Democratic National Committee, Facebook, Twitter bots, and stupid Americans who can’t tell the difference between fake news and real news (read: news that benefits Republicans vs. news that benefits Democrats).

The sit-down with Hillary was co-hosted by Kara Swisher and Walt Mossberg, who mostly offered up opportunities for Clinton to vent and attempted to give her wild-eyed conspiracy theories a sense of gravitas (video of full interview below).

The three spent a large portion of the interview discussing Russia’s meddling with the election, during which Clinton alleged that “1,000 Russian agents” and “millions” of Russian Twitter bots were almost certainly coordinating with the Trump campaign. Here’s an excerpt of Clinton’s convoluted conspiracy theory:

Clinton: Through content farms, through an enormous investment in falsehoods, fake news, call it what you will … The other side was using content that was just flat-out false, and delivering it in a very personalized way, both sort of above the radar screen and below. And you know, look, I’m not a tech expert by any stretch of the imagination. That really influenced the information that people were relying on. And there have been some studies done since the election that if you look — let’s pick Facebook. If you look at Facebook, the vast majority of the news items posted were fake. They were connected to, as we now know, the 1,000 Russian agents who were involved in delivering those messages. They were connected to the bots that are just out of control. We see now this new information about Trump’s Twitter account being populated by millions of bots. And it was such a new experience. I understand why people on their Facebook pages would think, “Oh, Hillary Clinton did that, I did not know that. Well that’s going to affect my opinion about her.” And we did not engage in false content. We may have tried to put every piece of information in the best possible light, and explanations, but we weren’t in the same category as the other side.
