Hillary Clinton has whined so often about the fact that she was beaten by a reality TV star whose first official foray into politics took him to the top elected office in the world that itâ€™s long since gotten old.
And yet she did it again just this past week at an event billed as â€œAn Evening with the Clintonsâ€ where, reportedly, ticketsÂ sold for as little as two bucks.
During the event at The Forum in Los Angeles, Hillary â€” a two-time presidential loser â€” appeared on stage with her former president husband, Bill Clinton, the Impeached One, to complain that Russia, or Trump, or Russia and Trump, prevented her from taking her â€˜rightful placeâ€™ in the Oval Office.
Perhaps because he had no acting gigs lined up or because he, like the Clintons, is trying to hold onto some lost glory, the former first couple was introduced by actor Ted Danson, who also sort of served as ‘moderator/chief question asker’ for the event.
At one point he asked Hillary a question that should have had him shaking his head: What advice would she give to 2020 Democratic presidential contenders (a better question might have been, â€˜Why should 2020 Democratic presidential contenders takeÂ anyÂ advice from you?).
â€œYou can run the best campaign, you can even become the nominee, and still have the election stolen from you,â€ she said.
Cue the groans.
AsÂ The Gateway PunditÂ reported:Â
Hillary Clinton has blamed everyone and everything for her 2016 election loss and now sheâ€™s straight up saying the election was stolen from her.
Loser Hillary Clinton didnâ€™t even visit Wisconsin during the 2016 presidential election and she has the nerve to say the election was stolen from her.
That is, of course, true. Clinton didnâ€™t frequent any of the so-called â€œblue wallâ€ states in the upper Midwest which were supposed to fall automatically to her, while POTUS Trump visited Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin frequently. And he won them.
Hillary also likes to claim that, hey, she won the â€œpopular voteâ€ by a couple million so that ought to count forÂ something. Only, in our representative republic, where presidents are elected by the Electoral College, not directly by the people, thatâ€™s not how it works.Â
But let’s take a step back from Clintonâ€™s constant whining and hyperbole about the election result and ask just what is behind the constant, narcissistic indulgences: Is she just a bitter old troll with nothing else to do? Is she mentally incapable of accepting defeat (especially by someone she and fellow Democrats consider to be the equivalent of a carnival barker)? Is she too arrogant? Too elitist? Too self-entitled?
Perhaps she may be a combination of all of those traits. But what if thereâ€™s a method to her madness? What if sheâ€™s just playing a role? What if she is helping lay the groundwork for Democrats ahead of Trumpâ€™s expected 2020 reelection to call it into question from the outset?
We already know that Democrats have been claiming since Clintonâ€™s defeat that POTUSâ€™ victory wasnâ€™t â€œlegitimate.â€ That claim rests primarily on the fact that he did not win a majority of votes (though he did win a solid majority of electoral votes). The claim is also based on the fabricated hoax that Trump â€œcolludedâ€ with Russian President Vladimir Putin against Hillary and her Democratic tribe.
Two-and-a-half years into the Trump presidency, there are still Democrats who refuse to accept his victory; what will it be like if he wins again next year,Â as it looks like he will?
Is Hillary Clinton really delusional about her loss to President Trump or is she just being a good Democrat foot soldier, goading the party faithful into challenging next yearâ€™s results in some violent way?
