Hillary Clinton is desperately trying to stay relevant, and it is pathetically embarrassing.
The Former Secretary of State claimed in 2016 that if Donald Trump won the election (which he did, thank God) then he would be nothing more than “Putin’s Puppet.”
In a recent interview, Mother Jones asked the 2016 Democratic candidate if she believes that statement still stands true, and Hillary raved that it was the truth.
“I do,” Clinton said, “I don’t know how the president of the United States, with all of the concerns about the integrity of our elections, could meet with Putin just recently and basically say, ‘Well, you know, he told me again he didn’t do it.’”
That’s funny because for him to “still” be a puppet would mean that he was a puppet to begin with, and Trump is in no one’s pocket. That is why we vote for him
Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One last week that he believes Putin “means it” when he denies interfering in the 2016 election, despite the conclusion of America’s intelligence agencies that Russia actively tried to influence millions of U.S. voters.
“Every time he sees me he says, ‘I didn’t do that,’ and I really believe that when he tells me that, he means it,” Trump said last Saturday.
Trump later clarified that he believes U.S. intelligence agencies’ reports of election meddling, and his original comment was about Putin believing there was no election interference.
“I can’t believe that he’s so naïve,” Clinton added. “I think that he hopes or expects the rest of us to be naïve, or at least the people who support him to be naïve. But this is a serious cyberattack on America.”
Sounds to me like someone is still butthurt that she didn’t win a rigged election.
Clinton added in the interview that while she has concerns about the legitimacy of the 2016 election, there is no method to redress those concerns in U.S. politics. At the same time, she panned efforts from House Democrats to introduce articles of impeachment against the president.
“We don’t have a method for contesting that in our system,” she continued, “That’s why I’ve long advocated for an independent commission to get to the bottom of what happened.”
“I think we need the investigations to continue,” Clinton concluded, “and I think that [impeachment is] premature.”
Investigations need to be launched and followed through with against Clinton!
