Hey, have you heard the one about HRC the Pantsuit Queen considering another run in 2020? Not a joke, no punchline, this is politics in 2018. And if this is indeed the case, it has got to be the stupidest move in a very long streak of stupid moves made by the Democratic Party.
I mean, do those guys like losing elections? So many of their recent actions seem to bear this theory out that one has to wonder if humiliating failure is their desired endgame.
Has the Democratic Party completely repressed the results and repercussions of 2016? Well, even if the DNC has, most Americans most assuredly have not.
Clinton has taken every opportunity lately to crow about her Super-PACs calling out Trump’s shenanigans. I suppose the irony of Super-PACs taking a stand against Trump’s war on the Little Guy is lost on someone who shells out 600 bucks for a haircut. But it’s nice to know Hillsy and her Super-PACs are part of the Resistance.
The only people who’d be delighted to see her run(aside from her shrinking but Still Shrill for Hill Pant Suit Brigade) are the GOP and Donald Trump Jr., who has publicly encouraged her to do so. The dope is fully aware it would ensure Daddy another four years of fuckery, and four more years of Donnie Jr. being able to use the pick-up line, “Show me your oval office. My Dad’s the president.”
The scope of Hillary Clinton’s megalomania is without par in today’s political landscape. Trump comes close, but HRC actually does win the popular vote in this situation.
Just the fact she truly believes that anything she has to say beyond, “I’m leaving public life forever to live in a cave. Tell Bill his dinner’s in the fridge and his hooker’s in the guest room” will excite the majority of Americans is astounding.
Even though you couldn’t give two shits less Hills, your arrogance and sense of entitlement is the reason we have President Trump.
As much as it pains your precious self and the mindless drones that support you (must … elect… vagina. But not Green Party vagina) there is one inescapable fact you can’t run from:
Trump didn’t win the 2016 election. You lost the 2016 election.
And if your popularity score is lower than an obvious con man’s you may want to consider your relevancy in today’s political climate and gracefully fade into the background. Forever. Please.
But you won’t, because you’re Hillary Clinton and believe that every person on the planet should hang on every word that spews from your lie-hole.
You don’t care who or what’s destroyed in your quest to obtain what you see as your birthright. You made that abundantly clear during the 2016 Democratic primaries when you thwarted the will of the people by cheating Bernie Sanders out of what was actually his right.
His right. Not yours.
But what of the DNC? Would they truly nominate a two-time loser who’s at least as reviled as the Marmalade Moron?
Of course. How can they refuse? Clinton literally owns the Democratic Party. No hyperbole there. The DNC went broke getting Obama elected for a second term, but luckily a kindly benefactor stepped in to save the day.
So if the Howling Hag Bag wants the nomination, she will get it, and the Democrats will lose.
At the very least, the Party’s 2020 nominee will have the HRC seal of approval (in other words, another corporatist neoliberal), and the Democrats will lose.
Then the whining and finger-pointing will begin anew because those pesky voters didn’t fall for the fear-mongering “Vote Blue No Matter Who” horseshit.
Because it can’t be something the establishment Democrats are doing wrong. Perish the thought. It’s those millions of American voters that won’t do their bidding.
Give us a Progressive presidential candidate, Dems. Give us Bernie Sanders, the most popular politician in the country by far.
Give us what we want and what the country needs and you will get our vote. Really.
Continue to care more about your corporate donors, including Hillary Clinton, and your already-flailing Party will be a dealt a death blow. It can’t survive another 2016.
Don’t say you weren’t warned. Again.
