Hillary Clinton certainly appears to be relishing in the apparent loss that Donald Trump took during the 2020 election, often expressing her undisguised disdain for the incumbent Republican President via Twitter.
So, naturally, as she fulfilled her role as one of New York State’s electors, Clinton couldn’t help but inject a bit of her own political belief into the ceremonial endeavor.
The 2016 Democratic presidential nominee and former secretary of state, senator and first lady, made her latest plea after casting an electoral vote for President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris on Monday as electors in all 50 states and the District of Columbia met to formalize Biden’s victory in last month’s election over President Trump.
“I believe we should abolish the Electoral College and select our president by the winner of the popular vote, same as every other office,” Clinton tweeted. “But while it still exists, I was proud to cast my vote in New York for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.”
Hillary wasn’t the only notable name casting ballots today, either.
Clinton was joined by her husband, former President Bill Clinton, and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, as part of the Empire State’s 29 electors to cast a vote for Biden.
Hillary Clinton won the popular vote against Donald Trump back in 2016, but was outwitted in the electoral college.
