WASHINGTON, June 1, 2017 — Hillary Clinton has worked tirelessly to keep herself in the news since her unexpected defeat at the hands of Donald Trump last November.
The mainstream media have speculated that Clinton is preparing to seek an office less glamorous than the U.S. presidency, like mayor of liberalism’s emerald metropolis, New York City.
The means by which Clinton has kept her name in the public eye can only be described as the Hillary Blame-Game Tour. And she says there’s a lot of blame for her defeat to go around:
- The “vast, right-wing conspiracy,” which includes the “alt-right.”
- Male misogyny (Bernie’s Bros).
- FBI Director James Comey.
- Russian hackers in the employ of Vladimir Putin funneling information to WikiLeaks.
- And of course, the deplorable Americans that supported Donald Trump.
“I take responsibility for every decision I make,” Clinton told a gathering at the Recode Code Conference in California, “but that’s not why I lost.”
She said the Democratic National Committee (DNC) “was bankrupt” and “on the verge of insolvency, its data was mediocre to poor, non-existent, wrong. I had to inject money into it⏤the DNC⏤to keep it going.”
If the Clinton clan is known for anything, it’s for collecting other people’s money, usually the money of shady Russian bankers, not spending it. Not even when shelling out Clinton cash might help the Democratic Party machine, which rigged state primaries in her favor.
Shrapnel from Clinton’s targeted blame bomb stung the DNC’s former data director Andrew Therriault, who tweeted:
“DNC data folks: today’s accusations are f@$%ing bull*+#t, and I hope you understand the good you did despite that nonsense … I’m not willing to let my people be thrown under the bus without a fight.”
When the American people rejected John Quincy Adams’s second bid to serve as U.S. president in 1829, he ran for a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives. In his nearly twenty years in the House, he led the legislative chamber’s opposition to slavery, even arguing before the Supreme Court on behalf of Africans who mutinied against the crew of the Spanish slave ship Amistad, seeking the right to return home.
Their plight argued Adams, “involved principles of the deepest interest to human freedom, and to the liberties of my country.”
Where Clinton is concerned, her principles never venture far from her considerable vanity.
It’s hard to see how Hillary Clinton has much of a political future, whether as mayor or dogcatcher, in light of her expanding enemies list, which now includes her own political party, a party that brazenly trampled upon the democratic principle of “one man, one vote” in an effort to further Clinton’s craven political ambitions.
