Hillary Clinton says she feels an ‘urge’ to run against Trump again

Failed 2016 Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton admitted in an interview this week that she feels the “urge” to enter the 2020 race.

“Yeah, I certainly feel the urge because I feel the 2016 election was a really odd time and an odd outcome,” she said in an interview with Variety magazine, suggesting she believes she could defeat President Donald Trump this time around. “And the more we learn, the more that seems to be the case.”

“Before he [Trump] was a blank slate,” she added in a separate interview with the Associated Press. “He was a guy that people saw on their TVs. As you know, he was a reality TV star. Now I think there’s a record that he’s going to have to be held accountable for.”

But before you start screaming “OH NO, NOT AGAIN,” relax, because she continued her statement to Variety magazine by conceding that, despite her urge, she intends to support the current candidates.

“I’m going to support the people who are running now and do everything I can to help elect the Democratic nominee,” she said.

And that makes sense, given as the Iowa Caucus looms only six days away.

When asked who exactly she intends to back, however, she abstained from answering.

Listen:

“I’m going to vote — I’m going to leave it at that,” she said. “I’ll definitely vote. I vote every time there’s an election. And I am telling everybody here at Sundance, everywhere I go, please, please go out and vote. And then, whoever the nominee is, support the nominee, whether it’s someone you voted on or not in the primary process, because the most important responsibility we all have is to retire Donald Trump.”

But when she was asked earlier this month by The Hollywood Reporter about whether she’d support candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders if he were to win the nomination, she refused to say yes. Instead she ranted about how how much Sanders allegedly sucks.

“Honestly, Bernie just drove me crazy,” she said of his failed bid against her in the 2016 race. “He was in Congress for years. He had one senator support him. Nobody likes him. Nobody wants to work with him. He got nothing done. He was a career politician. He did not work until he was like 41, and then he got elected to something. It was all just baloney and I feel so bad that people got sucked into it.”

In that interview Clinton was also asked whether she still stuck to what she’d said about Sanders while taking part in the just-released Hulu docuseries “Hillary.”

“In the doc, you’re brutally honest on Sanders: ‘He was in Congress for years. He had one senator support him. Nobody likes him, nobody wants to work with him, he got nothing done. He was a career politician. It’s all just baloney and I feel so bad that people got sucked into it.’ That assessment still hold?” the interviewer asked.

“Yes, it does,” Clinton replied.

In the latest interview with Variety, she was asked again about these remarks, albeit this time with an incredibly softball question.

“There was a lot of online attention about the line in the documentary where you said ‘nobody likes’ Bernie Sanders. But I feel like the context got lost, because you were talking about his time in Washington D.C. and how the press treated you versus him in 2016. Could you clarify that?” the clearly pro-Clinton interviewer asked.

Listen to the failed nominee’s reply below:

“I think we did that interview about a year and a half ago. I wasn’t thinking about the election by any means. I’ve said I’m going to support the nominee,” she said.

“But I do think it’s important to look at somebody’s record and look at what they’ve gotten done and see whether you agree with that or not. I think that’s what every voter paying attention should do.”

Yet when conservative media pundits tried to analyze her record during her run for office four years, she cried “sexism” and “misogyny” not only then but afterward as well. She repeated those same cries during the interview with Variety.

“A lot of it was manufactured,” she said of the criticism (or “hate”) she faced in 2016. “We now know that a lot of it was amplified by Russian bots. That’s still going on. And I knew that it was not really about me, it was about the threat that a woman running for president posed to certain set beliefs and structures.”

Listen:

Thanks to a left-wing culture of victimhood, Clinton appears to feel that it’s perfectly fine for her to excoriate others for their poor records in office but entirely unacceptable for anyone to dare denounce her own poor record as secretary of state.

She also seems to feel fine with always trotting out an excuse of some type or another to explain her and other Democrats’ failures.

In 2016, the excuses were sexism, misogyny, voter suppression and Russian collusion/interference. And going into 2020, she’s already adopted the latter two angles again to explain why the Democrats may lose come November.

“The attacks on the fundamental right to vote and run our elections free from illegal, unconstitutional and certainly foreign interference is going to be even more sophisticated today than it was four years ago,” she said to the AP.

“The person who gets the most votes should win,” she added in an attack on the Electoral College system. “The Electoral College is an anachronism that foils the rights of the majority of Americans to choose our leaders.”
