Twice-failed Democratic presidential candidate is desperately clinging to relevancy – doing so by calling most Republicans “cowards” and “spineless enablers” for supporting President Donald Trump.
During an appearance on the New York Times Opinion podcast with host Kara Swisher, Clinton further proved that she was still upset over her 2016 loss to Donald Trump.
The former Secretary of State claimed that “most Republicans are going to want to close the page” and “want to see [Trump] gone as much as we do, but they can’t say it publicly.”
Most Republicans, Clinton added, “have been cowards, spineless enablers” of the president.
Swisher asked if Clinton felt any “fear” that Trump would go after her legally if he wins.
“There’s no doubt that he would do everything he could to attack and punish anyone who was, in his view, an adversary,” Clinton said. “And he would be aided and abetted, sadly, by both elected and appointed officials.”
“So, of course, one of the most important accomplishments that I hope we see in this election is a Democratic Senate, where that would be the check that we would need against further abuse of power,” she continued.
Clinton further claimed during the podcast that she was “born” to be president.
The liberal Swisher asked Clinton if she thought a woman would handle the Chinese virus better. Clinton responded exactly as you’d expect her to.
“I have no doubt, especially if it were me,” Clinton said. “I was born for that. I mean, that’s why I knew I’d be a good president. I was ready for crises and emergencies, and I would have done what you see these women leaders doing…”
When discussing the President’s re-election, Clinton told Swisher she “can’t entertain the idea of him winning. … It would cause cognitive dissonance of a grave degree.”
She even added that seeing the man who easily defeated her in 2016 serve another four years as president makes her “literally sick to [her] stomach.”
“[I]t makes me literally sick to my stomach to think that we’d have four more years of this abuse and destruction of our institutions,” she added. “And damaging of our norms and our values. And lessening of our leadership. And the list goes on.”
Clinton – who fabricated a story that the President colluded with the Russians in the 2016 election, in an effort to distract from her email scandal – went on to claim that she believes “in the rule of law” and therefore would never fire back at the president’s “lock her up” chants with some of her own.
“Would you say ‘lock him up?’” Swisher asked. “No, I would never say that,” Clinton responded, adding, “I believe in the rule of law, unlike some of these people.”
Despite her doing an interview claiming that thinking about four more years of President Trump make her sick, Clinton then went on to state, “I think I live rent-free in his head.”
She added, “He does not live rent-free in my head, because I have very little regard for him.”
