Hillary Clinton was a "singularly terrible candidate" for president, conservative commentator S.E. Cupp said Wednesday.
During an appearance on "CNN Newsroom," Cupp told host Brooke Baldwin the Democratic party could have chosen a better candidate to represent it in the race.
"Hillary Clinton was a singularly terrible candidate. And not secretly," Cupp said.
"The stuff we knew about Hillary Clinton that was going to make her unelectable was stuff we have known for a long time, and I think the Democratic Party really shot itself in the foot by protecting Hillary for as long as it did, refusing to look at any other options, refusing to acknowledge her weaknesses, and sort of foisting her on an unwilling electorate."
Mediaite posted a clip of Cupp's comments.
Clinton lost Tuesday's presidential election to Republican Donald Trump. Many pollsters and pundits had predicted Clinton would win, but a combination of factors — including the possibility that Democrats were oversampled in polls — proved those predictions wrong.
Clinton has been dogged by scandals surrounding her use of a private email server during her time as secretary of state and also her family's foundation.
