For many Democrats, (and an obvious majority of Republicans), there is an overwhelming desire for Hillary Clinton to just go away.
The former Secretary of State has become the de facto poster child for political corruption here in the United States, having escaped justice on any number of scandalous endeavors during her long and infamous career in Washington.
During the 2016 election, Clinton’s crookedness peaked with dueling controversies. First, she was let off the hook by the FBI after it was discovered that she had dangerously maintained a secret email server in the State Department in order to hide her emails from government agencies responsible for our cyber security. It was then revealed that Clinton has colluded with the DNC in order to rig the primaries against Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders – something that Democratic voters made her pay for during the general election.
Clinton is now back in the spotlight after issuing an ugly attack on Sanders again, this time as voters head to the polls for Super Tuesday.
From Tuesday’s Good Morning America:
Interviewer Linsey Davis asked, “Just curious to get your response to hearing that Bernie Sanders said that if he makes it to the convention with the most pledged delegates that he should be the nominee. That’s quite a bit of change in his stance from 2016. Your reaction?”
After laughing, Clinton said, “My reaction is, let’s follow the rules. We’ve got rules. We had rules last time, and we have rules this time. I think it is always a good idea to follow the rules. Everybody knew when they got into it.”
Davis asked, “In the campaign, in the documentary, you talk about his campaign from 2016 and call it, quote, ‘just baloney and I feel so bad people got sucked into it.’ Do you still feel that way now?”
Clinton said, “Sure, yeah. You know that was my authentic opinion then. It’s my authentic opinion now.”
Supporters of Bernie Sanders have long maintained an unhealthy paranoia regarding the Democratic establishment’s attempts to subvert their candidate’s chances in the 2020 primary – a fear that has been exacerbated by recent developments on the campaign trail.
