Two-time failed Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, in an interview on the “Awards Chatter” podcast, talked about her documentary series “Hillary,” which was named the year’s best limited documentary series by the Critics’ Choice Real TV Awards in March. The host then asked the corrupt politician who never leaves us alone if she would win in a rematch against President Trump this time around.
Of course she said yes, even though she lost in 2016 by 70 electoral college votes.
Hillary then added “I think people believe that this is a referendum on him. You know, when he ran before, people who knew him mostly knew him from reality TV. He’d been in their living rooms, and he was a businessman, and he looked like a billionaire, and he rode around in his big plane and all of that. So they kinda thought, ‘Well, hey, you know, give the guy a chance. Let’s see what he can do.’ And now everybody, I think, knows what the consequences of that have been.”
But of course, Trump’s 3 ½ years in politics is nothing compared to Clinton’s, who has been in the national public eye since at least 1992, since her husband Bill’s presidential election. She then went straight to becoming a Senator from New York, and then after a failed Presidential run, became Secretary of State to then-President Barack Obama. And then she had another failed presidential run precisely because everyone knew her and didn’t like what they knew.
The self-delusion here is remarkable, and quite sad.
