Hillary Clinton continues to skirt around the edges of American politics this week, drawing the ire of the Democratic party in the process.
The former Secretary of State and twice-failed presidential candidate has appeared to be gearing up for another shot at the Oval Office in 2020 – a possibility that has Democrats and their supporters furious and frustrated. Clinton is largely a persona non grata among liberals, who found her rigging of the 2016 Democratic primaries as an egregious abuse of her power and influence, as well as a possible reason for Donald Trump’s electoral victory in that year’s general contest.
Now, as Clinton continues to drop hints about her possible late entry into the 2020 race, a number of prominent Democrats are publicly denouncing the possibility, including HBO host Bill Maher.
“It seems like every few months, Hillary Clinton bubbles up again,” Maher told his guests during the show’s panel segment. “And people are like, ‘Oh, she’s thinking about running.’ Or she says something crazy. …
“The Clintons,” he concluded, “they’ve got to go away.”
“I’m saying this a year out,” he continued. “They can’t be at the convention. Maybe on the video, waving or something, but I’m serious.”
Maher then referred to a Twitter message posted by Rep. Justin Amash, I-Mich., who called Hillary Clinton a “Donald Trump asset” in reaction to her claim that Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, was a “Russian asset” who was being “groomed” to run as a third-party candidate in 2020.
“She is!” Maher agreed. “And Bill is damaged goods. And I just think they’ve got to go away. We can’t be associating them with the Democratic Party.”
Clinton has repeatedly made mention of running in 2020 on Twitter, using the platform’s algorithmically-throttled responses a gauge of the idea’s popularity.
Hillary was recently derided by her fellow Democrats over her thinly-veiled diss of Donald Trump during a eulogy for late Congressman Elijah Cummings.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
