There are no signs of intelligent life, but certainly signs of a pulse from twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary R. Clinton, whose recently-packed media schedule suggests that she might be considering jumping into the 2020 presidential race at the last minute.
“Based on bookies’ bets and a few recent actions, speculation is once again starting to grow that Hillary Clinton may be about to enter the Democratic Party presidential nominee race…” ZeroHedge reported.”First, the repeatedly failed presidential candidate has a suddenly full media schedule this week, making appearances on CBS Sunday Morning, Stephen Colbert, and The View among others.”
For the record, this reporter has been saying since February that Clinton would make a third bid for the White House.
Clinton continues to lurk in the shadows.
This week, she spoke at the National Association for the Repeal of Abortion Laws (NARAL), which presented her with a lifetime achievement award. She spoke like a presidential candidate, making comments about current political affairs.
“This occupant of the Oval Office poses a clear and present danger to our future, to our democracy,” she said. “We knew he was a corrupt businessman who cheated people. We knew that his campaign invited foreign adversaries to tamper with our elections. And now we know that in the course of his duties as our president, he’s endangered us all by putting his personal and political interests ahead of the interests of the American people.”
It might sound like boilerplate leftism, but those are essentially the talking points of most of the 2020 Democratic Party presidential candidates, who offer nothing in the way of policy substance that interests ordinary Americans, and thus have resorted to surface-level “Orange Man Bad” attacks.
In a CBS Sunday Morning interview set to air tomorrow, Clinton also implied that she might jump into the race.
Look, there were many funny things that happened in my election that will not happen again,” she reportedly said. “And I’m hoping that both the public and press understand the way Trump plays the game.”
She also called Trump an “illegitimate president” and a “corrupt human tornado.”
ZeroHedge noted that she has recently come out in favor of impeaching Trump, along with every 2020 presidential candidate on the Democrat side. Though the group can’t explain exactly what for, they want Trump gone, and Clinton has matched them with her recent messaging.
“The president of the United States has betrayed our country. That’s not a political statement—it’s a harsh reality, and we must act. He is a clear and present danger to the things that keep us strong and free. I support impeachment,” she said on Twitter this week.
She also accused Trump of extorting a foreign government, though there is no evidence to back that claim.
“I don’t care who you’re for in the Democratic primary, or if you’re a Republican, when the president of the United States, who has taken an oath to protect and defend the Constitution, uses his position to in effect extort a foreign government for his own political purposes, I think that is very much what the Founders worried about in high crimes and misdemeanors,” she reportedly said.
