Conway: Hillary Should Stop Looking for People to Blame

Hillary Clinton is a "woman of enormous gifts and talents," but she should take a "look in the mirror" to reflect on what went wrong with her presidential campaign, rather than looking for someone to blame for her loss, Donald Trump's campaign manager Kellyanne Conway said Sunday.

"She should be commended for putting herself out there and running for president twice," Conway told NBC "Meet the Press" anchor Chuck Todd. "I can't believe it's always somebody else's fault."

On Saturday, Clinton told donors she blames her loss on back-to-back statements from FBI Director James Comey, with him telling Congress there was additional evidence in her email case 10 days before the election and then coming back two days before Election Day to say there was not enough evidence to prosecute her.

"We saw the polls tightening, as you must have, before the Comey announcement on October 28," Conway told Todd. "I think to recognize the fact that 40 million people have voted, they can't have it both ways in Clinton world. They were quoted that very weekend, Chuck, on your show and others as saying, people have decided. People have already incorporated the email scandal into their voting decisions. Now they're going back and saying he had an impact. What about the fact that they just got it wrong?"

Trump, meanwhile, was willing to spend time in "blue America," said Conway, "busting the blue wall."

"He found a lot of voters who disagreed with the Republican Party all along and they voted for him," she said. "Those were the undercover Trump voters we tried to talk about."

As the presidential transition period continues, Trump will be naming a chief of staff, a decision Conway last week said was "imminent." Republican National Committee Reince Priebus and Campaign Chairman Steve Bannon, formerly of Breitbart News both top the list of possible appointees.

Conway confirmed last week she has been offered a job in Trump's administration, and said on Sunday that both Priebus and Bannon will "both have big roles in a Trump administration, as well they should."

"It was a very small core senior team, probably less than ten people all told," said Conway. "I'm sure that everyone will be very important to the president moving forward. I will say this though. I think having worked with him and known him, Steve Bannon, in this particular campaign, was the general. And he is much more the Goldman Sachs managing partner and the naval officer than people realize."
