You know who’s a fantastic voice in American politics? Good ol’ Hillary Clinton.
That seems to be, at least, the excessively strong opinion of…Hillary Clinton.
The humiliated 2016 presidential 2nd-Placer made a startling claim Tuesday night at University of Texas at Austin, where she was…
…put down your fork…
…accepting an award.
According to Austin’s Channel 3:
“The LBJ School says this prestigious award is given to individuals who have demonstrated – with purpose, perseverance, courage, integrity and empathy- commitment to public service in service to the greater good.”
The former First Lady excoriated Republicans over the Georgia election, which pitted Brian Kemp against Stacey “Anti-Rifle” Abrams (here and here). During her campaign, Abrams took it upon herself to espouse ideology that would necessitate gun confiscation, though she — in quintessential politician style — refused to answer the question when posed.
Now Hillary’s posing, against the (presumably) racist injustices of those mean righties:
“If [Abrams] had a fair election, she already would have won.”
Abrams seemingly lost last week, but she filed a lawsuit Sunday challenging the rejection of more than 1,000 absentee ballots due to questionable or missing information.
.@BrianKempGA ran a great race in Georgia – he won. It is time to move on!

And the race continues.
As reported by Fox:
“Clinton, who may be considering another run for president in 2020, accused the ‘people on the other side’ of ‘undoing’ voting rights in the election. Supporters of Abrams have made accusations of voter suppression, long voting lines and other balloting problems.
“’Stacey is really in the arena and she is fighting for the right to vote and have your vote counted,’ Clinton said, praising Abrams ‘for continuing that fight.’”
Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown agrees:
“If Stacey Abrams doesn’t win in Georgia, they stole it. It’s clear, I say that publicly.”
Furthermore (and delusionally):
“They can’t win elections because there are way more of us than them. They can’t win elections fairly. They win elections by redistricting and reapportionment and voter suppression.”
“They win elections by redistricting and reapportionment and voter suppression and all the ways they try to scare people, particularly people of color.”
Whiteys ruin everything! Except ones like…Sherrod Brown, apparently. And Hillary Clinton. And any other Democrat. Democrats must always win!
Hillary knows a little bit about not accepting defeat: she’s spent the last two years gnawing at the heels of the American public over her 2016 loss. Despite the upset, she’s fought for relevance with a Kung-Fu grip possessed by few. Oddly, she doesn’t seem to understand that pertinence isn’t attained via attacking the past. She’s still fighting Trump as her nemesis (here), having added an afterword to her dirgey, blamefest of a book which makes absolutely absurd claims against the President (here).
Meanwhile, the Texas Board of Education has removed her from their Social Studies curriculum (here).
Nevertheless, we’re sure not to have heard the last of her. She’s far too determined, way too bitter, and endlessly too Hillary (here).
2020, look out — she just might run again (here). For now, she’s asserting herself in elections which have nothing to do with her. Because, despite holding no office and surely wielding little power of influence — so much so, the Republican Governors of Georgia used Clinton’s endorsement of Abrams as an ad against Stacey — as indicated above, she’s a voice that isn’t going away.
