Since Hillary Clinton has nothing left to lose, she is giving it to the American public straight, no chaser. Clinton isn’t running for president anymore; in fact. she’s probably just going to continue speaking out against President Donald Trump, whether he’s in office or not. Clinton’s plans, once Trump leaves office, are to sit outside his nursing home just to call him a bitch whenever he leaves his room.

During an appearance on Dutch TV last week, Clinton was asked about the possibility of Ivanka Trump becoming the United States’ first female president, to which Clinton’s replied: “Bitch, please. That woman better worry about her father getting impeached and her husband getting some security clearance. Also, tell her that there was a time in the 1960s when she could have come for me. That time has passed.”

Fine, she didn’t say any of this, but I could feel this sentiment in her actual answer, which was, “That’s not going to happen.”

When pressed as to how she could definitively state that Ivanka wouldn’t be president, Clinton responded, “No,” shaking her head. “No, we don’t want any more inexperienced Trumps in the White House,” Newsweek reports.

KRO-NCRV host Eva Jinek lightweight-shaded Clinton. noting that sometimes things we don’t want to happen happen.

“I think that normally I would like to believe what everyone is saying, but I’ve also learned after these elections that sometimes, things that we don’t expect to happen sometimes do happen,” Jinek told the former presidential hopeful.

But Clinton maintained that it was unlikely.

“Well, that’s true, but you know, fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me. And I think the American people have seen for themselves what happens when a reality-TV candidate wins,” Clinton said. “I really believe there’s an enormous amount of pent-up energy to take the country back from the Trump administration.

“I believe we have a very good chance of winning the House of Representatives,” Clinton added, referring to the Democratic Party. “[That] would begin the process of righting the ship of state.”

Let’s discuss all this below.

Senior Editor @ The Root, boxes outside my weight class, when they go low, you go lower.

KC Complains A Lot

The Splinter News version of this article will basically be the same, only with more demanding Hillary Clinton shut the fuck up, live in a hole in Siberia and never talk about anything political ever again. It will be written by a white woman who has no concept of irony of why it’s so dangerous to insist someone speaking out against tyranny should shut up and never speak again, spending several paragraphs saying Hillary has no right to speak about someone’s family running for office, forgetting she was politcally active before Bill.

It’ll also slyly insult Chelsea for some reason, before saying none of this shit would’ve happened if she hadn’t cheated King Mediocrity out of his totally earned election win. It will at no point at address the fact that Ivanka running for President is a terrifying prospect. It’ll also insult the Democratic party for being huge fuck ups incapable of doing anything before concluding with another strained insistence that Hillary go live on Mars and never speak again.

It’ll go to show why so many of us hanging out on The Root and avoid the rest of the blogs like they bought Kraft Mac and Cheese to Thanksgiving.
