In the aftermath of Christmas, the season of giving, failed 2016 Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton apparently thinks it’s a good time to pass the hat for her now purportedly financially challenged, so-called nonprofit organization.
The response on social media was an emphatic no sale, however.
“If you’re able to give, I hope you’ll consider supporting the life-changing work of the [Clinton Foundation],” she wrote on Twitter in her fundraising pitch. In so doing, she retweeted a message from the foundation’s blue-check account that bragged about various virtue-signaling-sounding initiatives.
Critics have alleged that the foundation functioned as an influence pedaling, pay-for-play operation in which foreign entities made big contributions in exchange for favorable U.S. government treatment while Hillary was U.S. secretary of state under President Obama.
This included the controversial Uranium One deal that the Obama administration approved while foreign investors poured millions of dollars into the Clinton Foundation.
The organization, officially known as the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation, also provides a cushy landing spot for Clinton political operatives in between election cycles, which perhaps is life-changing, for them.
One or more purported Justice Department investigations failed to amount to anything, however, which skeptics would insist is another example of a two-tiered, politicized legal apparatus.

As a mere coincidence, donations to the foundation dried up once Hillary Clinton was no longer an active government official, as Fox Business detailed earlier this month.
“Donations to the Clinton Foundation declined to $16.3 million in 2020, marking the smallest tally of contributions in several years, according to the organization’s annual financial report,” Fox Business reported.
“The 2020 contributions plummeted compared to the previous year when the Clinton Foundation received $29.6 million. Donations are down nearly 75% compared to 2016, when the foundation received $62.9 million as former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton ran for president. Clinton Foundation CEO Kevin Thurm cited the COVID-19 pandemic’s impact on donations in a letter addressing the foundation’s annual financials,” the report added.

Rumors have emerged that the still-bitter Hillary Clinton, who has been getting a lot more corporate media coverage lately, might be angling for another try at the White House, given the unpopularity and ineffectualness of the Biden/Harris team.
This could possibly set up a rematch with ex-President Donald Trump, whom she has predicted will run again.
In the meantime, Clinton’s plea for donations is getting roasted on Twitter. Here is a just a sampling:
