Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton joined MSNBC host Joy Reid on her show to ridiculously and falsely assert that Republicans don’t really care about crime because they’re somehow okay with Paul Pelosi’s vicious attack.
“Republicans claim you should vote for them because they’re tough on crime. But when one of their cult members commits a crime against Paul Pelosi, they couldn’t care less,” Clinton tweeted with a clip from the sitdown.
It was a “basket of deplorables” moment and was nothing short of disgusting. Her raging ego evidently knows no bounds.
“So, you know, I played that last little montage because if anyone can relate to and understand Nancy Pelosi’s life as a full-time hate object of the right, it would be you. And so I wonder if you can just, you know, tell me how the attack on Paul Pelosi struck you and what did it tell you about the state of the right in this country, and the hate toward a powerful woman?” Reid disingenuously asked the former first lady.
“Well, I think your question kind of answers itself, Joy. There’s always been a streak of violence, of racism, misogyny, antisemitism, as you said. But I think what we’re seeing today, and it has certainly been thrown into very high relief by the horrific attack on Paul Pelosi, is not just an aberration where one or two people or a small group engage in that kind of violent rhetoric and urge people to take action against political figures like her, like me, like others. We’re seeing a whole political party, and those who support it, those who enable it, those who run under its banner, engaging in behavior that is so dangerous and I find frankly disqualifying for people who are running for office,” Clinton stated, smearing conservatives across the nation.

Sorry, no Republican “cult members” attacked Paul Pelosi.

Then she went after the issue of crime which Republicans have been campaigning heavily on during the midterms for the simple reason that, under Democratic leadership, or the lack thereof, it has spiraled out of control across the nation. She apparently realizes Democrats are about to get shellacked in the midterm elections.
“You know, this midterm election, we have seen a lot of ads by Republicans running for everything, touting crime. Crime is the issue. But when an 82-year-old man is attacked by an intruder in his own home, they don’t seem to be too bothered by that,” she outrageously claimed.
“Because that person is married to the Speaker of the House, who is of a different political party. I just want your viewers and really I would like every American just to stop and think about that. This is the kind of violent rhetoric that leads to violent action that props up authoritarians, and that’s unfortunately what we see the Republican Party today supporting,” Clinton charged, absolutely lying through her teeth.
What about all of the crimes against Republicans since Biden’s speech in PA?

“You know, and to your very point, this attacker allegedly confessed to police that his plan was to kidnap Paul Pelosi, to wait for Nancy Pelosi to come home, and then to hold her hostage, to break her kneecaps if she didn’t tell whatever truth it is he thought he could get out of her, and then use her as a symbol to everyone else as to what would be in store for them if they didn’t behave as his sort of right-wing conspiracy theory mind believed they should. If you think about it, this was a kidnapping plot that was directed at the sitting Speaker of the House, and yes, her husband is the victim of it because he happened to be her husband and happened to be home,” Reid elaborated.
“And yet, you saw the person who now solely owns Twitter, which like it or not, is still a giant global public marketplace of ideas, promote lies about what happened to Paul Pelosi, promote conspiracy theories about it. With the reach that he has, and the fact that his — he and the Saudis own this thing, and that was blasted out to all of his followers and to the world. We’re not even in an age of reality anymore,” she spewed, taking aim at Twitter’s new CEO Elon Musk.
Clinton demurred and pivoted back to savaging Republicans.
Just more unmitigated lying from the worst candidate ever. Embarrassing.

This doesn’t work. The only people that believe that are people that will literally believe anything you say. Your problem is that your party has done such an objectively terrible job that new people are paying attention. And the new people don’t believe you.

“Well, to his credit, he took that down. I don’t see Republicans running for the Congress or Governors and many other different positions taking down their violent ads, or I don’t see them curbing their rhetoric,” she said.
“You played something from Marjorie Taylor Greene who is calling for, you know, the death because of treason for Speaker Pelosi. The level of just plain crazy violent hate rhetoric coming out of Republicans, you played something from the candidate, the Republican candidate for Governor in Arizona,” she said, taking a swing at Arizona’s Kari Lake, not even daring to mention her name.
“I want viewers, I want voters to stop and ask themselves, would we trust somebody who is stirring up these violent feelings, who is pointing fingers, scapegoating, making a joke about a violent attack on Paul Pelosi, why would you trust that person to have power over you, your family, your business, your community?” Clinton spuriously asked.
Crooked Hillary claims voters don't "really understand" midterm stakes. And she wonders why people don't like her? 😂

And, of course, in the end, it all comes back to Democrats beating the dead Jan. 6 horse.
“So I want to take this a step further, away from the incident, the terrible incident with Paul Pelosi, and broaden it out. Because what we have with the rhetoric coming from the Republican candidates, from their party right now, is so disturbing. I didn’t see a big outpouring on the part of elected officials to stand with Nancy Pelosi the way she has stood with Republicans as well as Democrats in times of real terror, like on January 6,” Clinton commented.
“And so ask yourselves, please, why would you entrust power to people who are either themselves unable to see how terrible it is that someone would be attacked in their home, or don’t really care because they think it will somehow get them votes that will get them elected. This is a real threat to the heart of our democracy,” she said echoing the talking points of her radical leftist party.
“Apparently Hillary Clinton hasn’t learned her lesson from her ‘deplorables’ comment [in 2016] that we all remember,” said “Outnumbered” co-host Kayleigh McEnany on Fox News.
