Failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton continued her sore loser tour on Saturday when she sat in front of an audience and tried to throw doubt on the legitimacy of President Trump’s possible 2020 reelection.
She and her husband Bill were speaking in Los Angeles as part of their “Evening with the Clintons” circuit, which Fox News described as a “slumping speaking tour.”
Hillary was trying to give the 20 or so Democratic presidential candidates some advice on how to win — something she was not able to do, which was by no fault of her own, she revealed.
She told the crowd, “Keep your eye on the whole landscape as it is moving forward. And I think it’s also critical to understand that, as I’ve been telling candidates who have come to see me, you can run the best campaign, you can even become the nominee…”
“...and you can have the election stolen from you.”
The audience cheered excitedly at her declaration, which was rather odd, since you would have expected her loyal supporters to have booed anything that had prevented Hillary from realizing her destiny as Madam President.
“That, my friends, had nothing to do with the economy, does it?” she continued, suggesting, it seemed, that Trump’s ideas for improving the U.S. economy didn’t help him get elected.
“Part of our challenge is to understand what it will take to put together, not just the popular vote, but the electoral college,” Hillary added, addressing something else she was terrible at doing in 2016.
Speaking of presidential candidates, another little-known politician has announced his bid for the Democratic nominee. Sen. Michael Bennell (D-Colo.) launched his campaign after being delayed by prostate cancer treatment, according to CBS affiliate WWMT.
If nobody announces before De Blasio, he would bring the number of Democratic presidential candidates to 23, according to Ballotpedia.
