Email Clinton's Pastor Sent To Her After Loss Exposed - Leaves Many Outraged

As you would expect, losing last year’s presidential election was a pretty jarring experience for Hillary Clinton. The same can be said for any presidential candidate that comes up short, as losing after putting yourself out there so much is a tremendous blow to the psyche. In Clinton’s case, we would imagine that it was particularly traumatizing, as all signs pointed to her having things in the bag.

Alas, the polls turned out to be inherently flawed, and her campaign strategy suffered as a result. Clinton waited until the day after the election to deliver her concession speech, so we can conclude that the turn of events was just as dramatic behind the scenes as it was for those watching from the comfort of their homes.

As the Daily Mail shares, Clinton’s pastor was there for her during this trying time. Rev. Bill Shillady offered up a prayer for her the following day, and let’s just say that he sounded pretty upset about things in his own right.

“It is Friday, but Sunday is coming. This is not the devotional I had hoped to write. This is not the devotional you wish to receive this day. While Good Friday may be the starkest representation of a Friday that we have, life is filled with a lot of Fridays. Your Friday is what happened in the last few weeks and last night in the tragic loss. But Sunday is coming!” he wrote. “My sister Hillary. You, our nation, our world is experiencing a black Friday. Our hope is that Sunday is coming. But it might well be hell for a while."

While it’s certainly nice of Shillady to take the time to speak on behalf of the nation and the world, he did a lousy job conveying the sentiments of what everyone was experiencing. Were there people out there upset that Clinton lost? Certainly. Many of her ardent supporters were devastated, and that includes many members of the mainstream media. There were actually instances of network personalities becoming visibly upset and/or completely rattled live on the air as the election results became clear.

By contrast, there were plenty of folks that were downright ecstatic that President Donald Trump secured victory. The fact that it happened in such a stunning fashion made it all the sweeter for those folks, as there were a ton of signs that Clinton would win in a landslide. She didn’t, and we can surely see how that’s a tough one to swallow.

That being said, there’s a difference between being upset over a loss and becoming bitter about it. Clinton has pointed dozens of fingers at others for the loss, and she fails to accept any accountability on her end. Her actions on that front make it appear as if we dodged a gigantic bullet when she lost the election.

While we can be sure that Shillady had good intentions when offering up his words of wisdom, presenting it as some kind of tragedy is laughable. People lose. They can either dust themselves off and get back up, or they can stay down by blaming others. Clinton has chosen the latter approach, so she may have to wait awhile for her ’Sunday’ to come.
