Hillary Clinton claims she won the presidency in 2016; teases she’ll run again

That woman has no shame.

In the 2016 presidential election, Hillary Clinton lost the electoral vote by a wide 304–227 margin. She then blamed and trashed Americans who had not voted for her, calling them “deplorables,” racists, woman-haters (“misogynists”), and white nationalists.

Aided and abetted by then-FBI Director James Comey’s refusal to investigate or indict her, Hillary also continues to deny she had violated the law when, as Obama’s secretary of state, she ILLEGALLY used a non-State Department personal email server to receive and transmit emails and documents, some of which were classified.

On Tuesday, October 8, during an interview on PBS News Hour, Hillary falsely claimed she’d won the 2016 presidential election and repeatedly teased that she may run again in 2020.

Hillary made that preposterous claim in response to host Judy Woodruff quoting President Trump’s tweet earlier that day. Trump wrote:

“I think that crooked Hillary Clinton should try to enter the race to try and steal it away from uber-left Elizabeth Warren. Only one condition: The crooked one must explain all of her high crimes and misdemeanors, including how and why she deleted 33,000 e-mails.”

Hillary replied:

“You know, it truly is remarkable how obsessed he remains with me. But this latest tweet is so typical of him. Nothing has been more examined and looked at than my e-mails. We all know that. So maybe there does need to be a rematch. Obviously, I can beat him again. But, just seriously, I don’t understand, I don’t think anybody understands what motivates him.”

Clinton later responded to Trump’s tweet directly with this tweet:

Ryan Saavedra of Daily Wire reminds us that during the first 2016 presidential debate, Hillary had grandly proclaimed she would “respect” and “honor” the outcome of the election because “To say that you won’t respect the results of the election, that is a direct threat to our democracy.” She said: “Well, I support our democracy. And sometimes you win and sometimes you lose, but I certainly will support the outcome of this election.”

According to Saavedra, “Despite teasing otherwise, those close to Clinton claim that she is not going to run in 2020.” Former Hillary campaign strategist Adrienne Elrod told The Hill on Monday:

“It’s silly. It’s a pipe dream. I mean, look, she’s made it very clear that after this last run she’s done. It’s time for new faces to come in. To be honest with you, I don’t know that a run this time around would yield a first- or second-place finish. I think there’s a lot of new people in the party who are stepping forward. I think we’ve got a very deep bench of strong candidates, and she knows this. I would advise against her running, not because I don’t think she’s qualified. Of course, she is, but I think that she knows it’s time for faces and new leadership to step forward.”
