‘Trot the old horse out again’: Hillary Clinton wants to help out in midterms, GOP happy to hear it

Hillary Clinton wants to lend a helping hand in next year’s midterm elections and Republicans think that’s a great idea.

While no clear role has been carved out, Clinton reportedly is looking at assisting the Democratic Party with fundraising and possibly getting involved in races in some of the House districts she won in last year’s presidential election, according to The Hill.

“The more Clinton weighs in and tries to tell voters ‘I’m baaaack,’ the more Republicans will tell her to keep on trucking.”

The reaction on social media suggests Heye hit the nail dead on the head… here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:

It was hilariously suggested by some users that the Democratic Party put Clinton in charge of IT:
