Sometimes the best satire is what hits closest to home. For example, a hilarious headline on satirical conservative newsite The Babylon Bee recently went: “Hillary Clinton Announces She Will Seek Reelection As President of the United States.”
The best part of the headline and the satirical news story was that Hillary actually talked about a 2020 rematch against President Trump. In the friendly confines of the PBS News Hour, the liberal pundits asked Hillary why she thought President Trump was so antagonistic towards her. The question was prompted by yet another great tweet by President Trump, where he also took a shot at Senator Elizabeth Warren:
“I think that Crooked Hillary Clinton should enter the race and steal it away from Uber Left Elizabeth Warren. Only one condition. The Crooked one must explain all of her high crimes and misdemeanors including how & why she deleted 33,000 Emails AFTER getting “C” Subpoena.”
Hillary’s response: “Don’t tempt me. Do your job.”
While Hillary’s social media game could use some fine tuning, what she revealed is more important than her lack of online prowess. Hillary deeply wants to run again—she is tempted.
In the PBS interview Hillary gets very defensive about how she avoided well-deserved prosecution for exposing State Department classified documents on her personal and undoubtedly hacked server at home. Her oft repeated mantra: “Nothing has been more examined and looked at than my emails. We all know that. So, he’s either lying or delusional or both.”
What she is saying, like the rest of the corrupt Washington, DC establishment is this: “Can’t someone make this guy go away? He keeps reminding everyone that we are all embroiled in the abuse of power and high-rolling above the law for which we are trying to impeach him.”
Then in yet another entry into the Twilight Zone Hillary continued, “So maybe there does need to be a rematch. Obviously, I can beat him again.”
Again? Has Hillary been watching reruns of Star Trek Voyager? You know, the ones where the crew goes through those rifts in time to change the past. Of course, the record clearly shows that President Trump won the majority of the state’s electoral votes, while Hillary’s popular vote win in the People’s Republic of California gave her a plurality in national numbers.
Voyager to Hillary: The Presidential election is not a national election. Like the Senate, it’s done state by state. Listen to Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, Hillary. That’s Never Going To Change.
The smaller states where normal people live will never buckle to a California kook and New York limousine liberal takeover of the presidential election.
However, in a rare moment of clarity, Hillary told the interviewer, “I said during the campaign, there was no other Donald Trump. What you saw was what you were going to get.”
What Americans got was a leader who actually focused on putting his country first. As he stepped into the swamp of corrupt Clintonesque pay-for-play, the alligators have been continually snapping at his ankles.
Perhaps Hillary is waiting for yet another Democrat coronation event where she can again put in the fix, send Bernie Sanders to retirement and maybe offer Elizabeth Warren a job that matches her true qualifications in the Bureau of Indian Affairs.
Hillary will first need to apologize for calling President Trump supporters “deplorables.” Then maybe a visit or two to states where normal people live and an actual plan to return the Democrat party to its populist roots might help.
But then she’d have to quietly give in to the younger generation of Democrats whose populist tendencies are towards socialist giveaways for illegal immigrants. In Hillary’s case, what the voters see won’t be what they will get.
