Somehow, some way, Hillary Clinton still believes that she has some sort of viable opinion to offer to the world of American politics.
This is, after all, one of the most unliked characters in all of American politics whose attempts to become President have been roundly rejected by the nation at large on more than one occasion.
Put it simply: Clinton is clinging to her pipe dreams and for no discernible reason.
Now, as if to put an exclamation point on this suggestion, the former First Lady is now issuing a wildly troll-ish statement regarding Donald Trump’s potential 2024 victory.
From an appearance on ABC this week:
Clinton said, “If I were a betting person right now, I’d say Trump is going to run again. He seems to be setting himself up to do that, and if he’s not held accountable, then he gets to do it again. I think that could be the end of our democracy. Not to be too pointed about it, but I want people to understand that this is a make-or-break point. If he or someone of his ilk were once again to be elected president, and if especially if he had a Congress that would do his bidding, you will not recognize our country.”
And that wasn’t all…
She added, “I tried to warn people. I tried to make the case that this was really dangerous — the people he was allied with, what they were saying, what he might do. I do think, but for Jim Comey and the stunt he pulled 10 days before the election, I would have won. I feel terrible about not stopping him and the people around him, but I feel like now everybody can see for themselves what kind of leader he is.”
The statement, while unsurprising in content, came seemingly from left field, leaving many to wonder just what prompted Clinton’s latest attempt to insert herself into the national narrative.
