Hillary Clinton who apparently forgot to take her meds, made the false claim that she beat President Trump in the 2016 election while suggesting that 2020 could bring a rematch between the two.
Clinton made the hilarious claim during an interview on PBS News Hour after Judy Woodruff read to Clinton Trump’s latest tweet about her.
“I think that crooked Hillary Clinton should enter the race to try and steal it away from uber-left Elizabeth Warren,” Trump tweeted Tuesday. “Only one condition: The crooked one must explain all of her high crimes and misdemeanors, including how and why she deleted 33,000 e-mails.”
The crooked one responded, “You know, it truly is remarkable how obsessed he remains with me.” Clinton continued, “But this latest tweet is so typical of him. Nothing has been more examined and looked at than my e-mails. We all know that.”
“So maybe there does need to be a rematch. Obviously, I can beat him again,” Clinton claimed. “But, just seriously, I don’t understand, I don’t think anybody understands what motivates him.”
During the first presidential debate, Clinton said: “Well, I support our democracy. And sometimes you win and sometimes you lose, but I certainly will support the outcome of this election. And I know Donald is trying very hard to plant doubts about it, but I hope the people out there understand this election’s really up to you.
It’s not about us so much as it is about you and your families and the kinds of country and future you want. So I sure hope you will get out and vote as though your future depended on it because I think it does.”
It appears that Hillary for all her pep talks given to voters, was a pretty poor sport after losing the electoral vote by a wide margin (304 – 227). Clinton then trashed Americans who did not vote for her by saying that they were “backwards” and suggesting that they were racists, sexists, and white nationalists.
“If you look at the map of the United States, there is all that red in the middle, places where Trump won,” Clinton said.
“What that map doesn’t show you is that I won the places that won two-thirds of America’s Gross Domestic product. I won the places that are optimistic, diverse, dynamic, moving forward. And his whole campaign, Make America Great Again, was looking backwards. You don’t like black people getting rights, you don’t like women getting jobs, you don’t want to see that Indian American succeeding more than you are, whatever that problem is, I am going to solve it.”
Not all Democrats would be willing to welcome Hillary back with open arms – including a former Clinton campaign strategist Adrienne Elrod who spoke to The Hill to say:
“It’s silly. It’s a pipe dream. I mean, look, she’s made it very clear that after this last run she’s done. It’s time for new faces to come in. To be honest with you, I don’t know that a run this time around would yield a first- or second-place finish.
I think there’s a lot of new people in the party who are stepping forward. I think we’ve got a very deep bench of strong candidates, and she knows this. I would advise against her running, not because I don’t think she’s qualified.
Of course, she is, but I think that she knows it’s time for faces and new leadership to step forward.”
