Old and Worn Out, Just like Her Political Career
As history has proven, Hillary Clinton’s overused talking point is calling her opponents Russian assets. Anyone that questions how President Trump’s “Russian Witch Hunt” began should look no further than Clinton herself. It’s obvious she’s worn out, especially when she uses the term so loosely, and it’s just sad that anyone could still buy her crap. She can’t seem to walk away with pride or dignity, or even hold her head high. Rather, she won’t stop talking about things she believes keep her relevant, to which I say: honey you’re only making a fool of yourself.
Clinton said on Friday that the Russians were “grooming a Democrat” in the presidential primary to run as a third-party candidate and champion Moscow’s interests on the campaign trail.
“I’m not making any predictions, but I think they’ve got their eye on somebody who is currently in the Democratic primary and are grooming her to be the third-party candidate. She’s the favorite of the Russians,” Clinton said in a podcast with former Obama adviser David Plouffe. The statement was answered by President Trump on Monday, as he slammed Hillary Clinton for asserting that Democrat presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard was a Russian asset.
“She’s accusing everyone of being a Russian agent. These people are sick. There’s something wrong with them,” Trump said during a cabinet meeting at the White House, adding that Clinton’s revival of the charge was helping the Hawaiian lawmaker, who has lagged behind in the 2020 Democrat hopefuls pack.
She’s Just Crazy
Trump just made a great point. The same point I was thinking, which is that Clinton publicly saying that Tulsi Gabbard was a Russian asset feels like a distraction from, not only the indictments coming her way after the State Department completes its internal investigation into Clinton’s use of private emails (where 588 violations were found and 38 people could face criminal charges), but to pull away MAGA supporters since Gabbard is an Army veteran. She decided to make her statements the same day those reports regarding her emails came out.
Clinton’s calling Gabbard a Russian wasn’t the first time. We learned last night on Tucker Carlson that 2016 Green Party candidate Jill Stein was interviewed by Carlson and expressed that Hillary Clinton had also called her a Russian asset. Why? Because once, when Stein attended a lunch, Putin just happened to walk by and a picture was taken, where Stein was in the background. Clinton used that image as her tool for ruining reputation.
During his Fox News primetime interview with close friend and confidant Sean Hannity on Monday night, President Trump took aim at his 2016 presidential election foe, calling Hillary Clinton “crazy” and “sick” for suggesting Russians were “grooming” Rep. Gabbard for a third-party presidential bid. Claiming he didn’t know either Stein or Gabbard—even though Gabbard met with him shortly after his election to defend Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad—Trump went on to say that neither of them were Russian assets, before revisiting his cabinet remarks about Clinton and her defenders.

Moments later, Trump circled back to the topic, grousing once again that the Russia investigation was a “phony scam,” and found his way to also make it about Clinton’s comments.
“And then you have Hillary Clinton saying, two days ago, Tulsi Gabbard is a Russian asset,” Trump exclaimed. “And that Jill Stein is a Russian agent. And I said, ‘Wait a minute, it took me two and a half years,’” he added. “I wish you would have said that earlier because people would have realized she’s crazy, she’s crazy!”
Modern Day Lynching
The war waged on as Gabbard tweeted at HillaryClinton, “your foreign policy was a disaster for our country and the world. It’s time for you to acknowledge the damage you have caused and step down from your throne.” Even though I don’t trust Gabbard, as I’ve been researching her cult childhood upbringing, I like her publicly busting Clinton’s chops. In all honesty, Hillary Clinton needs to take a trip to GITMO and throw away the key.
What Clinton has started with the Russian witchhunt against our President is very much like a modern day lynching, and is only the tip of her crimes. People need to calm down and stop being so PC about it too. What Lindsey Graham said recently is very much true: “this is a mob rule mentality and lynching would best describe how Trump has been treated as it is not the word, it is the conduct. It is not personal, it’s political.”
