There’s a headline the left wasn’t expecting to read.
According to an MIT professor, bots helped boost Hillary Clinton’s chances of success in 2016 over candidate Donald Trump.
Talk about backfire.
Social media bots helped failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton more than President Trump during the 2016 presidential election, according to a paper from an MIT associate professor.
In a paper, Monday, Tauhid Zaman, an associate professor of operations management at the MIT Sloan School of Management, revealed that “Trump bots were far less effective at shifting people’s opinions than the smaller proportion of bots backing Hillary Clinton.”
Zaman noted: “Given much of the news reporting, we were expecting the bots to help Trump – but they didn’t. In a network without bots, the average human user had a pro-Clinton score of 42 out of 100. With the bots, though, we had found the average human had a pro-Clinton score of 58. That shift was a far larger effect than we had anticipated, given how few and unconnected the bots were. The network structure had amplified the bots’ power.”
During a recent interview, Clinton claimed all black people looked alike.
Was it in jest?
Does it matter?
Just imagine if a Republican said those words. There would be instant outrage and wall-to-wall media coverage.
Check out what happened when a reporter asked Millennials about the comments, saying they were made by President Donald Trump.
From Daily Caller:
The DC’s Stephanie Hamill visited a college campus in Washington, D.C.,to find out how students felt about Hillary Clinton’s recent “they all look alike” comment.
During a recent conference, Clinton joked about how “they all look alike” after the interviewer mixed up Sen. Cory Booker and former Attorney General Eric Holder, who are both prominent black Democrats.

Is Clinton gearing up for a third presidential run?
All signs point to…potentially.
“We’re going to talk about 2020 in a minute — do you want to run again?” [Recode’s Kara] Swisher asked Clinton.
Hillary: “No. No. Well, I— well, I’d like to be president.”
Hillary: “Look, I think, hopefully, when we have a Democrat in the Oval Office in January of 2021, there’s going to be so much work to be done.”
