Just when you think you’ve seen the last of Hillary Clinton, she reemerges from the swamp like a zombie from a horror film almost as if your worst nightmares of a President Hillary are what fuels her ambitions.
According to her former close aide, Philippe Reines, Clinton could be eyeing yet another run at the presidency in 2020.
“[Clinton] is smarter than most, tougher than most, she could raise money easier than most, and it was an absolute fight to the death,” said Reins.
Reins did acknowledge, however, that the chances are slim that Hillary would indeed make a third attempt. “It’s somewhere between highly unlikely and zero, but it’s not zero.”
When this news reached White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, she couldn’t help but tweet out a quick jab at the thought of Clinton running yet again.
“Christmas coming early this year?” joked Sanders.
It’s been a rough week for Hillary Clinton as even the co-hosts of “The View” were not happy with what she had to say in a recent one-on-one interview.
On Monday’s edition of “The View,” co-hosts Joy Behar, Abby Huntsman, and Meghan McCain all tore into Hillary Clinton for her defense of sexual misconduct allegations against her husband, former President Bill Clinton.
In an interview with CBS on Sunday, Hillary was asked if she thinks that Bill should have resigned following his scandal with former White House intern Monica Lewinsky.
“Absolutely not,” replied Hillary, stating that Lewinsky was an adult at the time. She then dodged the following question on whether it was an abuse of power by asking why no one was investigating allegations against current President Donald Trump.
Watch the women of “The View” discuss the topic in the video below:
The live audience on “The View” applauded Hillary’s answer, but co-host Joy Behar did not appreciate her answer. “What she just did is exactly what Republicans do, they changed the subject,” said Behar. “And that’s why we never get anywhere in the discourse.”
“You know you have a bad argument when your immediate response is ‘well, they were worse,'” co-host Abby Huntsman said.
“This highlghts to me I think why some people struggled to vote for her, because you can’t have it both ways in her position,” Huntsman continued. “You can’t put yourself on a pedestal and be a leader for the feminist movement, and at the same time refuse to acknowledge the reality that you’ve lived with for all these years and stand by your husband. I don’t think she can have it both ways and she continues to try and do this.”
Behar then called Hillary “a victim of [Bill’s] stupidity,” and when the #MeToo movement was brought up, Behar said that Bill is “guilty.”
Co-host Meghan McCain then said that the Democrats should distance themselves as much as possible from the Clintons, especially now that the midterm elections are so close.
The fourth member of the panel, Sunny Hostin, was the only one to defend Hillary’s response, saying that Lewinsky indeed was an adult at the time of her consensual relationship with the former president.
