Hillary Clinton continues to talk about her presidential election loss, but Democrats appear to have had enough, suggesting she and the party needs to move on from 2016, some political news sites conclude, including The Hill.
Democratic Sen. Al Franken, one of the most liberal members of Congress, expressed that view last week, telling Yahoo Global News's Katie Couric that the Democrats need to pay more attention to future elections and issues.
"I love Hillary," Franken told Couric. "I think she is very prepared to be president of the United States … and I think she has a right to analyze what happened, but we do have to move on. We have to move on by proving we are the party that cares about a lot of the people who voted for Donald Trump."
Patti Solis Doyle, a longtime aide to Clinton and the Democratic Party, shared similar feelings in a Twitter post last week.
The criticism of Clinton's extended time on the political stage after the 2016 election comes as she continues to blame everything from Russian interference, former FBI director James Comey, to the Democratic Party itself for her loss to Donald Trump, said the Washington Times.
Clinton stepped up her criticism during last week's Code Conference on Wednesday in Ranch Palos Verdes, California.
"I set up my campaign and we have our own data operation," Clinton said, according to a transcript of the conference. "I get the nomination. So I'm now the nominee of the Democratic Party. I inherit nothing from the Democratic Party. … I mean it was bankrupt, it was on the verge of insolvency, its data was mediocre to poor, nonexistent, wrong. I had to inject money into it … to keep it going."
The Hill said Clinton's comments angered many Democratic and charged that she need to rethink her "public blaming tour."
"She's apparently still really, really angry. I mean, we all are," one Democrat told The Hill last week. "The election was stolen from her, and that's how she feels. But to go out there publicly again and again and talk about it? And then blame the DNC? It's not helpful to Democrats. It's not helpful to the country, and I don't think it's helpful to her."
