Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said Tuesday that Hillary Clinton still "can't come to grips with reality" over her loss to Donald Trump in the November election.

"The No. 1 one problem of the Hillary Clinton campaign was Hillary Clinton," Gingrich, the former Georgia congressman who was speaker from 1995 to 1999, told Martha MacCallum on Fox News. "In the end, she couldn't win a race that they all thought was going to be easy."

Clinton told CNN in New York that she took full responsibility for losing to Trump in November, but also cited misogyny, Russian interference and questionable decisions by FBI Director James Comey in her defeat.

"If the election had been on Oct. 27, I would be your president," she told Christiane Amanpour. "It wasn't a perfect campaign. There is no such thing.

"But I was on the way to winning until a combination of Jim Comey's letter on Oct. 28 – and Russian WikiLeaks raised doubts in the minds of people who were inclined to vote for me but got scared off."

Gingrich, 73, who ran for the Republican presidential nomination in 2012, told MacCallum that Clinton's "No. 1 problem, let's be clear, was Donald Trump, who turned out to be an amazingly better candidate than any Democrat could be.

"He understood that if he really did his best in western Pennsylvania, Ohio, northern Michigan, and Wisconsin that he was going to be president.

"He won, she lost," he said. "It is kind of sad to watch or repeat this 'somebody-else-made-me-do-it' kind of analysis."
