At this point, Hillary Clinton is sort of like a fly buzzing in your ear that you can’t get rid of. Just when you think she’s gone, she comes out of nowhere to annoy you some more.
During the most recent stop of Hillary Clinton’s spiraling speaking tour, Hillary looked to gain some more free press by claiming the 2016 election was stolen from her.
While on stage in Los Angeles Saturday night with her husband Bill Clinton as part of the couple’s “Evening with the Clintons” tour, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee told the crowd that she has been warning other potential candidates they could suffer the same fate.
“I think it’s also critical to understand that, as I’ve been telling candidates who have come to see me, you can run the best campaign, you can even become the nominee, and you can have the election stolen from you,” said the former secretary of state.
It appears however, she’s hardly the only prominent Democrat claiming to have been wrongly kept out of office. On Friday, Neurotic Georgia Democrat Stacey Abrams again claimed she won the state’s 2018 gubernatorial race, despite losing to now-Gov. Brian Kemp.
“I’m here to tell you a secret that makes Breitbart and Tucker Carlson go crazy: We won,” Abrams said, according to The Houston Chronicle. “I am not delusional. I know I am not the governor of Georgia — possibly yet.”
Abrams attempted to justify her inability to accept her defeat by calling Kemp “an architect of voter suppression that spent the last eight years knitting together a system of voter suppression that is unparalleled in America.”
Clearly it seems to be a trend among Democrats to try to come up with excuses for a lack of votes which are more likely a direct result of their poorly thought-out policies. This refusal to accept defeat is a dangerous threat to our democracy and should be treated as such. In typical liberal fashion, Clinton is now putting on a rather evident display of hypocrisy by doing exactly what she feared her opponent, now President Donald Trump, would do by refusing to acknowledge a legitimate defeat.
At the Clinton event, the liberal crowd broke out in applause after Hillary Clinton recited the “stolen” election line, before she continued with a jab at President Trump.
“And that, my friends, has nothing to do with the economy,” she said. “So part of our challenge is to understand what it will take to put together not only the popular vote but the Electoral College.”
Clinton won the popular vote in her 2016 campaign against Trump but lost the Electoral College — and with it, the race. Since then she has been a very vocal proponent of dismantling the Electoral College, a crucial element of maintaining balance in our nation’s Democracy.
The declaration wasn’t the only headline Hillary Clinton made with her tour over the weekend, with the defeated 2016 candidate whining to a crowd in Seattle that she thinks Attorney General William Barr would rather “be the president’s defense lawyer than the chief law enforcement officer of our country.”
The former first lady also questioned how Trump could still hold conversations with Russian President Vladimir Putin following the release of the information in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report. Ironic, considering Hillary and the DNC actually paid Russia for any potential dirt on Trump that would help them win the election – which still didn’t help her.
This came after President Trump and Putin on Friday discussed what Trump again dismissed as the “Russian Hoax” in their first known phone call since the release of Mueller’s report. Trump said that, at no point, did he warn Putin not to meddle in the next election.
“We discussed it,” Trump said of the report. “He actually sort of smiled when he said something to the effect that, ‘It started off as a mountain and it ended up being a mouse,'” Trump said of Putin. “But he knew that because he knew there was no collusion whatsoever. So pretty much that’s what it was.”
Tickets for the Clintons’ speaking tour have gone for as little as $20 on the secondary market, as demand to hear Clinton lament about her 2016 failure apparently has dropped.
