‘Egregiously irresponsible’: Hillary Clinton says no room for ‘civility’ until Democrats are back in control

Hillary Clinton believes a return to “civility” is only possible under Democrats, the party that just gave America the spectacle of Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings.

The failed 2016 Democratic presidential nominee told CNN International’s Christiane Amanpour that there is essentially no hope of having respectful and professional dialogue with Republicans who want to “destroy” what Democrats “stand for.”

The irony of Democrats standing up for something commendable following the smear campaign they launched against Kavanaugh was lost on Clinton.

“You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about,” she said in the interview from Oxford, England.

“That’s why I believe, if we are fortunate enough, to win back the House and/or the Senate, that’s when civility can start again. Until then, the only thing Republicans seem to recognize and respect is strength,” the former Secretary of State suggested.

Clinton must have been watching a different version of the hearings as she then said President Donald Trump  and Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell  “demeaned” the process and blamed them for “attacking” Kavanaugh’s accuser, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford as well as “women who were speaking out.”

“I remember Republican operatives shutting down the voting in Florida in 2000. I remember the swift voting of John Kerry. I remember the things that even the Republican Party did to John McCain in 2000. I remember what they did to me for 25 years,” Clinton whined.

“The falsehoods, the lies, which unfortunately people believe because Republicans have put a lot of time, money, and effort in promoting them,” she said.

She seemed to perfectly describe her own party as she slammed Republicans for their evil ways.

“So when you’re dealing with an ideological party that is driven by the lust for power, that is funded by corporate interests who want a government that does its bidding- you can be civil, but you can’t overcome what they intend to do unless you win elections,” Clinton argued.

She also criticized the president for turning Kavanaugh’s ceremonial swearing in at the White House Monday into a “political rally.”

“What was done last night in the White House was a political rally. It further undermined the image and integrity of the court. That troubles me greatly,” Clinton said.

Trump dismissed his former rival’s remarks with a smirk.

“That’s why she lost. She doesn’t get it. She never did,” he told reporters in the Oval Office on Tuesday.  “I knew that a long time ago. Hillary never got it. That’s why she lost.”

Clinton’s lack of self awareness and remarks about “civility” were roundly mocked by Twitter users.
