Hillary Rodham Clinton seems to have a knack for saying and doing the worst things at the worst possible time, and with Election Day now two weeks away and millions of Americans already voting, she comes through again.
In a repeat of the infamous “Madame President” fiasco, Hills reminded Americans of the one thing that may scare them more than anything else — Kamala Harris’ finger on the proverbial red button as commander in chief.
Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s running mate celebrated her birthday Tuesday and Clinton marked the occasion by sharing a photo of Sen. Kamala Harris.
The caption of the kiss of death tweet read: “In two weeks, we could call this birthday girl Madam Vice President.”

Thirteen days before the 2016 election, the ill-fated Democratic nominee posted a happy birthday wish to herself: “Happy birthday to this future president.”
And while she got trumped in that election, 77-year-old Biden does prove that at the age of 72, Clinton could have at another run or two in her.

And who can forget Newsweek’s “Madam President” cover in the run-up to the 2016 election?
A cover the failed candidate was captured in a photograph signing the day before she lost to President Donald Trump.

Newsweek had to do a quick recall after 125,000 copies of the $10.99 commemorative magazine was published with Clinton’s photo on the cover and the headline “Madam President.”
The cover remains a collector’s item to this day, with Amazon pricing it at $199 — with only two in stock as of this writing, if interested, you’d better hurry.
As a social media user observed, it does appear that Clinton learned a valuable lesson in 2016, as she did say in Tuesday’s tweet that folks “could” be calling Harris Madame Vice President.
“Could” LOL. You learned your lesson, huh? 😂
