Twice failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton revealed just how afraid the Democrats are that they will lose the presidency in 2024 – resorting to a desperate attempt to convince Americans that a Republican victory would be “the end of our democracy.”
Clinton spoke with NBC “Today” anchor Willie Geist to make the claim that if former President Donald Trump or a Republican candidate of “his ilk” wins in 2024, Americans will not “recognize our country.”
“If I were a betting person right now I’d say Trump is going to run again. He seems to be setting himself up to do that and if he’s not held accountable then he gets to do it again,” Clinton told Geist. “I think that could be the end of our democracy not to be too pointed about it, but I want people to understand that this is a make or break point.”
The interview with Clinton saw the Democrat reflecting on her embarrassing 2016 loss to Trump, as she expressed disgust about the possibility of Trump running – and likely winning – again in 2024.
“I tried to warn people. I tried to make the case that this was really dangerous, the people he was allied with, what they were saying, what he might do,” Clinton said. “I feel terrible about not stopping him and the people around him, but I feel like now everybody can see for themselves what kind of leader he is.”
Clinton continued, claiming that she “hoped for the best” for the country after Trump defeated her in 2016, but she said Trump’s inauguration speech turned her off, saying it was “outrageous” and that there “wasn’t one grace note” in the speech.
She then pivoted to slamming Republicans in Congress for following his lead in “abusing” their office.
“Sadly the Republican Party has gone along with him. Honestly, they have hung their spines up on the wall as they walk into their offices. They have no conscience,” Clinton said. “They have no spine and we are seeing the results of a party that has been taken over by a demagogue. It is a time to decide whether we are going to be a grown-up country or not.”
Later in the bizarre interview, Clinton was asked about the state of the Democratic Party, prompting her to say it is “time for some careful thinking about what wins elections,” not that she would know.
“I understand why people want to argue for their priorities. That’s what they believe they were elected to do, so look I’m all about having vigorous debate,” Clinton said.
“I think it’s good and it gives people a chance to be part of the process, but at the end of the day it means nothing if we don’t have a Congress that will get things done and we don’t have a White House we can count on to be sane and sober and stable and productive.”
Clinton’s interview, as a whole, served as little more than an obvious and frantic attempt by the Democrats to spin up the familiar false claim that Republicans are somehow “evil” to counter the crisis dooming the Democratic party as President Biden is plagued by historically poor approval ratings, and they run the risk of losing control in the coming years.
