CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - Talk about political fallout!
The Harvard Institute of Politics hosted a "postmortem" discussion between the Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton camps to dissect the 2016 Presidential Election.
Instead of a discussion, the event turned into an all-out verbal brawl!
Clinton Communications Director Jennifer Palmieri: "If providing a platform for white supremacists makes me a brilliant tactician, I am glad to have lost. I would rather lose than win the way you guys did!"
Trump Campaign Manager Kellyanne Conway: "Do you think I ran a campaign where white supremacists had a platform? You're gonna look at me in the face and tell me that?"
Jennifer Palmieri: "It did, Kellyanne. It did."
Kellyanne Conway: "That's how you lost?"
Jennifer Palmieri: "It did!"
Kellyanne Conway: "Do you think you could have just had a decent message for the white, working-class voters?!
Guys, I can tell you are angry, but wow. Hashtag: He's your president. How's that?
Jennifer Palmieri: "Hashtag: If he's going to be my president, then he needs to show me that white supremacy is not acceptable just steps from the oval office."
Emotions were running high on both sides, and there was plenty of cattiness to go around!
Clinton's chief strategist Joel Benenson also stirred the pot by insisting that Trump has no mandate from voters.
Joel Benenson: Don't act as if you have some popular mandate for your message, the fact of the matter is is that more Americans voted for Hillary Clinton than Donald Trump. so let's put it in total context.
Kellyanne Conway: And there was nothing that said the road to 'popular vote' anywhere, it's the road to 270.
Conway went on to call Clinton's team "bitter" about the results, but that didn't seem to calm anyone down.
Well, so much for politics putting everyone in the holiday spirit!
