A video clip from a new HBO documentary The Final Year has been making its way around the internet, showing a completely devastated Ben Rhodes beside himself as he tried to “process” Hillary Clinton’s historic loss in the 2016 U.S. election.
Rhodes, Obama’s former deputy national security advisor for strategic communications, dons a thousand-yard-stare. “I came outside just to process all this,” Rhodes says, beside himself. “I can’t even…ah, uh…I can’t…I mean I, I, I, I can’t, I can’t, I can’t, I can’t put it into words, I don’t know what the words are.”
Ben Rhodes reacting to Hillary Clinton’s hilarious defeat in 2016 is the funniest part of the new Obama Documentary on HBO.
What makes it even better is throughout the documentary he brags how she is going to win. pic.twitter.com/MGBQNE5ATY

Rhodes, like so many others, were convinced Hillary was going to win and that it was #HerTurn. Alas, despite wildly inaccurate polls and an overconfident Clinton, her victory was not to be.
Of course, let us all remember that it wasn’t her fault – nothing ever is, and that had a laundry list of other people not interfered, she would have won the election.
I bet Clinton’s secret service agents LOVED watching her at Costco vs the Whitehouse #lol pic.twitter.com/tsR5d7je5X
