If there is anything that the Democrats could do without right now, it’s a bunch of noise from Hillary Clinton.
The left already has their work cut out for them, trying to shoehorn the rich, old, white Joe Biden into their allegedly progressive party. The former Vice President, for his part, doesn’t look at all enthused to be out there on the campaign trail, and has spent much of his time behind the lectern either spouting gibberish or lashing out in bizarre temper tantrums.
But Clinton can’t help herself, and she is interjecting herself into the 2020 election against the wishes of the Democratic Party she once looked to lead.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton railed against President Trump and his response to George Floyd’s death in a new interview with the Los Angeles Times, saying his handling of the situation has been “inadequate” and that the president has been “such a failure across the board.”
In excerpts of the interview that were published Saturday, Clinton pulled no punches when it comes to the president or his supporters.
“It is a mystery why anybody with a beating heart and a working mind still supports him,” she said.
And that’s not all.
Clinton accused Trump of making everything “all about him” instead of addressing problems head on.
“If it’s about a terrible pandemic with an unprecedented virus, he tries to ignore it, tries to keep the attention on himself,” she said. “Then when it becomes impossible to do that, he tries to seize the moment and turn it into a daily rally, like he loves to do. And then when it becomes impossible to ignore, he tries to change the subject, he tries to withdraw from the spotlight so he can come up with some other diversion and distraction for the body politic and the press.”
The left is going to have enough trouble beating incumbent Republican Donald Trump in November, without Hillary Clinton throwing herself back into the midst of this mess.
