Trump Derangement Syndrome and denial of reality continues, even after almost six months of Trump in office. Newsweek imagines what life would be like with Killary as president. Thank God it’s not our reality.
From Newsweek: Hillary Clinton sits behind the resolute desk in the Oval Office, pulling out a large blue binder and a jar of hot peppers—her typical snack as the leader of the free world. It’s 9:30 p.m., and madam president spent the day successfully rallying House Republicans and Democrats behind a health care bill that will improve upon her predecessor’s landmark initiative, the Affordable Care Act. The bill passed an hour ago, but she isn’t anywhere near done fulfilling her duties to the American people.
“I won’t be taking any more calls,” Clinton tells senior adviser Huma Abedin, who is walking toward the door near the grandfather clock. “I want to look through these Russian sanctions one more time. Tell Bill not to wait up for me.”
Abedin, leaning on the half-open door to one of the most powerful rooms in the world, gives one last look at the president before leaving the White House. “You did a good job today, Madam President.”
“Who runs the world?” Clinton asks, positioning her glasses higher on her head as she stares down at her documents.
“Girls. Girls run the world,” Abedin responds, closing the door and leaving the president to her work.
Of course, none of these events have played out in reality: Donald Trump is the president of the United States in 2017. He prefers Diet Coke during his (near) daily briefings, tweets his frustrations about the “fake news” media and regularly continues blasting his former opponent in last year’s election, often imagining what the state of the union would be like under Clinton.
