Though the 2016 election is long past and the chances of Hillary Rodham Clinton one day becoming America’s first woman president continue to dwindle, it’s clear by her words and actions that she still longs for the presidency.
Consider how she behaved during a book signing Friday in Park Avenue, Manhattan, for “This Stops Now,” a book by Eric Garner’s mother, Gwen Carr. Clinton wrote the forward for it.
As the event moderator introduced her, an audience member yelled, “The real president!”
Watch how she reacted below:
She nodded her head in profuse agreement. While it’s easy to claim “she was just nodding along for the fun of it,” her past behavior suggests she’s obsessed with becoming president. Not only that, but she genuinely believes she should be president right now.
Nothing else can explain her unwillingness to admit that she lost fair and square, and due in large part to her own failures as a highly flawed candidate who had failed to connect with voters.
Like White House counselor Kellyanne Conway noted in a tweet last year, Clinton lost because she ignored traditionally blue states like Wisconsin, referred to half of the population as “deplorables” and failed to convey a cohesive message:
You Ignored WI
Called us deplorable/irredeemable
Had oodles of $$ & no message
Lost to a better candidate

The former secretary of state’s sycophants in the media have been willing to indulge her in her delusions of grandeur, going so far as to predict she’d win the 2016 election if a redo were performed, and even asking her to imagine an Earth 2 where she’s president.
“Full-on diplomatic pressure and sending diplomats who actually know the language, know the history, know the culture,” she said when asked last year how she’d respond to the North Korean crisis.
“We would be putting as much money as it took into enforcing the laws we already have, and then I would be pushing for universal background checks. That would include gun shows,” she added when asked about gun violence.
The response on social media to this video had been brutal, with Twitter user after Twitter user blasting her for being so “loony.”
She is as loony as they come! Maybe she is practicing to be president on Mars when they start letting humans live on it!! It won’t be soon enough.

You all are STILL talking about this? She lost. Get over it.

It really does seem like Clinton and her fans are unable to get over losing. It was only about half a year ago that Newsweek ran a piece that the far-left periodical Willamette Week ran a piece claiming, “It’s Not Too Late To Make Hillary Clinton President.”
Hillary Rodham Clinton will likely never be president of the United States, and it’s not just because there’s no such thing as an Earth 2 — it’s also because the American people simply don’t like her.
