Hillary Clinton ran for president for all the wrong reasons.
At least that’s what outgoing Vice President Joe Biden suggested in a new interview. Biden said Clinton felt obligated to run for president even though she had no compelling reason to.
“I don’t think she ever really figured it out,” Biden told the LA Times. “And by the way, I think it was really hard for her to decide to run.”
In an absurd post-mortem of Clinton’s failed presidential run, Biden claimed that Martyr Hillary felt she “had no choice” but to run for the sake of womankind. (Is marijuana even legal in DC?)
“She thought she had no choice but to run,” Biden said. “That, as the first woman who had an opportunity to win the presidency, I think it was a real burden on her.”

Biden agreed with the widespread conclusion that Clinton and the Democrats got trounced this election cycle because they failed to connect to everyday, working-class voters.
“I believe that we were not letting an awful lot of people — high school-educated, mostly Caucasian, but also people of color — know that we understood their problems,” Biden said.
Biden was making a reference to the mainstream media caricature of Donald Trump supporters as uneducated whites, which is as racist as suggesting that Hillary and Obama supporters are poor, uneducated minorities living off welfare and food stamps.
Meanwhile, folks on Twitter say they know EXACTLY why Hillary Clinton ran for president (twice even!), and it had nothing to do with trying to champion womankind.

She ran for her dream of being first woman president and to keep money flowing into Clinton Foundation.
