This might be the biggest sore loser, public temper tantrum in political history
Hillary Clinton had her claws out on Friday as she used a college commencement speech to lace into President Donald Trump and Republicans.
In a speech to her alma mater she called the current political climate in America a “full-fledged assault on truth and reason” and then made a thinly veiled comparison to President Trump and former President Nixon as she recalled her college days.

She then offered what seemed to be a mostly liberal crowd, judging from the reactions, a little bit of impeachment “hope” in the form of an Nixon analogy.
“By the way, we were furious about the past presidential election, of a man whose presidency would end in disgrace with his impeachment for obstruction of justice,” she said. “After firing the person running the investigation into him at the Department of Justice.”
“But here’s what I want you to know,” she said. “We got through that tumultuous time.”
Clinton, who suffered one of her famous coughing jags during the speech, showed she is nowhere near over he election loss.

But she told the crowd what coping mechanisms she has used to get by.
“You may have heard that things didn’t go exactly as I planned,” she told the graduates of her second failed bid for the presidency. “But you know what—I’m doing okay.”
Really? Is that why she engaged in this woe is me whinefest?
“Long walks in the woods, organizing my closets, right? I won’t lie—Chardonnay helped a little too.”
Perhaps she was drunk on said Chardonnay when she continued her assault on the president and his administration.
“When people in power invent their own facts and attack those who question them, it can mark the beginning of the end of a free society,” she said. “That is not hyperbole, it is what authoritarian regimes throughout history have done,” she said. “They attempt to control reality.”
You mean like “I didn’t send any classified emails from my private server?”
She also aimed her hyperbole cannons at the president’s health care plan, calling it “an attack of unimaginable cruelty on the most vulnerable among us — the youngest, the oldest, the poorest, and hard working people who need a little help to gain or hang on to a decent, middle-class life.”
“Let’s call it what it is, it’s a con. They don’t even try to hide it,” she said.
And speaking of cons, remember when you told the American people the Benghazi attack happened because of a YouTube video.
Many on social media blasted the speech as sour grapes.
@JohnKingCNN Clinton’s speech was sour grapes. She was a horrible candidate. She has no business doing this and CNN is salivating over it!

Others called her out on her hypocrisy.
Is Hillary Clinton really the right person to lecture about “undermining confidence in government”? Yikes! Tone-deaf at #Wellesley2017

Hillary tried her best to relate to the Millennials:
“So, I told my aides to destroy 13 hand-held electronic devices.”

@brikeilarcnn Did she come up with this after taking sniper fire in Bosnia, or was it when Benghazi was caused by a YouTube video?

@brikeilarcnn This coming from a woman who, during campaign season, edited Politico articles about herself before they went to print. Yeah, that’s rich.
