Looking to blame Russia for Trump, isn't this just not accepting responsibility?

These types of articles are multiplying. The investigation seems to me, in part, about not accepting responsibility for 1) blindly believing, 2) not having critical thinking skills, 3) being unwilling to admit the US is not (insert superlative) enough to chose the best candidates, 4) losing.

What I have yet to hear/read is someone saying something along the lines of  "I should have checked that story my friend forwarded me on FB", or "Dammit, I should have known better" or even "Trump voters need to learn how to fact-check". Instead, "Russia made them do it" is all we're hearing. No. People made a choice because they're irrational. They're irrational because we don't value education and expect good teachers to work at retail wages while cutting funding for education programs and focusing on tests rather than the practical. In short, the US is getting what it refuses to pay for: An uneducated public without critical thinking skills.

Thoughts?

It's strange that almost all the "fake news" was attacking Trump.. yet the left is complaining that "fake news" cost Hillary the election.   Just what fake news was posted about Hillary?   There is so much REAL shit that Hillary did that why would someone bother to make anything up?
