If Hillary Clinton has a mystery to solve - like, say, why she lost the election - her favorite childhood book heroine can help her figure it out.
Clinton lost in part because Republican Donald Trump won Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania - states that Democratic nominees had won for at least the past six elections.
But Clinton's stubborn refusal to take any blame for her loss (she's only said she takes blame for some "decisions") has soured the Democratic grassroots. She claimed that many Americans voted against her because they believed the fake news they saw on their Facebook feeds and Twitter accounts.
"The Russians, in my opinion, and based on the intel and counter-intel people I've talked to, could not have known how best to weaponise that information unless they had been guided", Clinton said.
"It was bankrupt, it was on the verge of insolvency, its data was mediocre to poor, non-existent, wrong", Clinton said.
She took to Twitter to fire back at Trump. "I would just urge them to hurry up", she said.
This one is nearly relevant, except for the fact that Clinton claims if the election was held on October 27, 2016 she would've been the first female president.
Trump brought up the server regularly on the campaign trail.
Clinton and Trump have continued to trade barbs after the election.
"I was the victim of a very broad assumption I was going to win", she said, adding that she always expected the race to be close.
"DNC data folks: today's accusations are f*******g b******t, and I hope you understand the good you did despite that nonsense".
Clinton also noted that Bezos, from what she's heard, has been "hands-off on the editorial and content front", allowing reporters and editors to "get out there and do investigations". "Who told them? Who were they coordinating with, or colluding with?" "I think it's important we learn the real lessons of this last campaign". She said she would like to see Facebook curate its network more aggressively.
Polling data suggests Clinton's defeat can largely be attributed to her failure to gain sufficient support among white working-class voters.
Of course, we're living in the age of Trump where the president - even after winning an election - regularly plays the blame and sympathy game. "Ah, the small group explanation", she told someone in the audience during the Q&A. "I got paid for the speeches I made", she said.
