Class is a characteristic that you either have or you don’t, and there’s no faking it.
It’s clear at this point that Hillary Clinton’s legacy is indelibly linked to President Donald Trump, this being more of her making than the president’s because Clinton simply cannot move on from the fact that she lost to Trump in 2016.
This was apparent once again at the funeral of the late Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., as Clinton took a subtle shot at Trump in a comment about Cummings standing up to the “corrupt leadership of King Ahab and Queen Jezebel.”
The two-time failed presidential candidate said it was “no coincidence” Cummings “shared a name with an Old Testament prophet whose name meant in Hebrew, ‘the Lord is my God,’
“And who used the power and the wisdom that God gave him to uphold the moral law that all people are subject to and because of all people are equal,” Clinton added.
“Like the prophet, our Elijah could call down fire from heaven,” she said. “But he also prayed and worked for healing. He weathered storms and earthquakes but never lost his faith. Like that Old Testament prophet, he stood against corrupt leadership of King Ahab and Queen Jezebel,” she said.
Her words drew rapturous applause in the church.
Clinton went on to make another remark about living without “fear” of our leaders.
“And he looked out for the vulnerable among us,” she said of Cummings. “He lifted up the next generation of leaders. He even worked a few miracles, and he kept reminding us life is no dress rehearsal. The American people want to live their lives without fear of their leaders, and as leaders, we have a responsibility to keep the promises made when running for office, to make the lives of Americans better.”
Some in the media also can’t get over Clinton not being elected president in 2016, as seen here:
She should be president. Some days I can’t….

Social media users don’t expect much from Clinton, though some were still caught by surprise over the lack of class.
Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
Hillary Clinton just compared Donald and Melania Trump to King Ahab and Queen Jezebel. #ouch

Clinton says that Cummings’s example should inspire everyone now to ask: “in 2019, what did we do to make sure we kept our democracy intact?”

Political rule #666; never let a funeral eulogy go to waste.

The last thing Hillary should be doing is quote scripture eulogizing the one of the most corrupt members of Congress.

I think she’s lost it. I kind of always thought of her and Bill as King Ahab and Queen Jezebel, though……

Mommy, make the bad woman go away.

Here’s another public appearance. Hillary will not just ride into the sunset, will she.
I think that she is looking at the current democrat field and feels that she can beat any one of them. She is going to take one more run at it.
What do you think?

The Dems have been refining this opportunism since Paul Wellstone passed.

Hillary Clinton just gave a eulogy at Elijah Cummings’ funeral and compared President Trump and First Lady Melania to King Ahab and Queen Jezebel

I had to do a study years ago on the Kings and my essay established that Hilary is the original Jezebel. And Bill was her willing Ahab.

Nothing like using a eulogy to highlight your own talking points. This is exactly why she lost the presidency. A bitter woman that has the worse case of TDS anyone has ever seen.

Hillary must have read The Harbinger……and she’s trying to turn it around!
