Team’s back together again attempting to make a wave in American politics. Former Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton went on Campaign HQ podcast, which is hosted by Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign manager, David Plouffe. We remember him well. The pair still can’t come to grasps with the 2016 election outcome, blaming third-party candidates such as Jill Stein of the Green Party, and you guessed it…Russia.
Claiming that the 2020 elections face the same speed bumps that kept Clinton out of office, they discuss Russia as it relates to 2020. Clinton said of Russia, “They are also going to do third party again.” She went on, “I’m not making any predictions, but I think they’ve got their eye on somebody who is currently in the Democratic primary and are grooming her to be the third-party candidate.” Clinton did not mention Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) by name, but it was clear who she was talking about.
Just this past week, at Tuesday night’s fourth Democratic debate, Rep. Gabbard called out CNN and the New York Times specifically for exactly what Hillary said in the podcast. Gabbard lamented:
New York Times and CNN have also smeared veterans like myself for calling for an end to this regime change war. Just two days ago the New York Times put out an article saying that I’m a Russian asset and an Assad apologist and all these different smears. This morning a CNN commentator said on national television that I’m an asset of Russia. Completely despicable.
Needless to say, it wasn’t hard to crack Hillary’s code. “She is a favorite of the Russians. They have a bunch of sites and bots and other ways of supporting her so far. That’s assuming Jill Stein will give it up, which she might not because she is also a Russian asset.”
Wow, two Russian assets? Maybe she’s just bitter that Gabbard supported Bernie in the 2016 election.
