When it comes to Hillary Clinton, there has always been a bit of an air of desperation about her – particularly in regard to the Presidency.
It now seems somewhat inevitable that Clinton’s team will consider yet another run at the Oval Office in the coming weeks. The obvious telegraphing of the idea, along with Clinton’s own remarks as of late, have the Democratic Party rightfully concerned that the former Secretary of State may wish to play spoiler in 2020.
A large part of her drivel as of late has been directed at the victor of the 2016 election, President Donald Trump, who will almost certainly be the Democrats’ opponent come next November – another indication that Clinton could soon be on the campaign trail herself.
She has been so desperate to diss Trump, however, that she has lost any sense of tact that she may have once possessed. Her latest anti-Trump insults came during a eulogy of late Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings.

“He weathered storms and earthquakes but never lost his face,” she continued, before delivering a subtle dig at the Trumps.
“Like that Old Testament prophet, he stood against corrupt leadership of King Ahab and Queen Jezebel,” she said to extended applause.
Social media users were appalled at Clinton’s choice to politicize the event.

Hillary Clinton is so bitter and spiteful that she has to inject politics into a funeral.
Clinton said Elijah Cummings “stood against the corrupt leadership of King Ahab and Queen Jezebel.”https://t.co/SmWtSa74nn

Hillary Clinton just gave a eulogy at Elijah Cummings' funeral and compared President Trump and First Lady Melania to King Ahab and Queen Jezebel

Clinton’s inability to separate her politics from the grieving process is just another reason why the left is hoping and praying that she will not attempt to enter the 2020 race.
