Former Secretary of State and twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is apparently still under the delusion that she is "the real president" of the United States after taking a historic loss to Donald Trump on November 8, 2016.
At a recent event with Gwen Carr, the mother to the late Eric Garner, Hillary was introduced as "the real president." The Democrat nodded and smiled along as if this statement somehow reflected reality.
Mrs. Clinton, of course, was defeated on Election Day in 2016 despite outspending her opponent, a former reality star and success business man, nearly 2 to 1.
The Internet reacted accordingly:
This sort of thing is par for the course with Hillary, though. The 70-year-old did not take the election less well. At one point, The Daily Wire was able to compile a list of 38 outrageous contributing factors Hillary blamed her loss on, including "being too honest," content farms in Macedonia, sexism, former FBI Director James Comey, and Netflix.
Still not over the loss, rumors have circulated that Hillary thinks a third time might be the charm.
"On Friday, Former Hillary Clinton Aide Philippe Reines made comments that sparked rumors of a third presidential run. Reines, who worked with Clinton in the Senate, in the State Department and during her 2016 presidential campaign, told Politico that a third Clinton run is unlikely — but not entirely off the table," notes Bustle.
"Clinton, despite her enormous flaws and two presidential defeats, can’t be ruled out as the party’s best hope. God knows she wants it more than anybody else," said a New York Post piece published Saturday.
Additionally, Hillary and former President Bill Clinton recently announced a six-month speaking tour. "The gambit is designed to keep her name front and center without having to declare herself a candidate. Her recent phone calls to White House reporters also signal her plan," added the Post's Michael Goodwin.
