On Thursday’s episode of “The Ben Shapiro Show,” Shapiro talks about Hillary Clinton’s ongoing search for relevance. Video and partial transcript below:
So the media, of course, are trying to paint this race as “stop being mean to the females, stop being mean to the women…”
This is where we get the picture of the day, the best picture of the day, because they tried this with another candidate in 2016. You’ll recall, Americans were sexist if they didn’t vote for Hillary Clinton. Well, Americans did vote for Hillary Clinton, by popular vote, but they didn’t by electoral vote, and now Hillary Clinton wanders the earth sadly looking for relevance.
I don’t know if this is the saddest picture I’ve ever seen, or the happiest picture I’ve ever seen. I’m having a tough time deciding. So this is why you should subscribe folks, at DailyWire, because then you can actually see this picture. It’s a picture of Hillary Clinton, at some sort of book signing, sitting behind a fake Resolute desk.
See, because she’s not behind the real Resolute desk because she was not elected president. She’s sitting behind the fake Resolute desk, grinning, with a bunch of papers in front of her. Hillary Clinton has literally become Miss Havisham from Charles Dickens. Remember Miss Havisham? The old spinster who was once engaged and jilted at the altar, and now she’s 60, and she runs around her decaying mansion wearing her wedding dress from 40 years beforehand? That is Hillary Clinton now.
Hillary Clinton is like, you know what, I don’t know about you guys, I need to get behind this desk and pretend, just for a little while, that I’m President of the United States. I need to pretend; I’m gonna get behind this Resolute desk and I’m gonna pretend, just for a little while, that my best memory of this Resolute desk is not Monica Lewinsky beneath it, but actually just me sitting behind it as though I were President of the United States.
I mean, wow. That is a sad human being. That is a very sad human. Like some people lose an election, they go on to have a life, like Mitt Romney. He lost an election and then he went on and he had a life, He got elected to [the] Senate and he was doing some charity work. Al Gore lost an election, won the popular vote [but] lost the election went and spent the next several next couple of decades fibbing about the effects of climate change and making billions of dollars off of it — leading himself a life and winning an Oscar. John Kerry went on to be Secretary of State. Hillary Clinton loses an election, and she is basically Stacey Abrams-ing in this thing. She’s going to just claim that she won…
I mean, I have to say, I love this picture. I almost want to have it framed and signed by Donald Trump. I think I can make that happen for myself. Really, this now occurs to me that I know enough people close to President Trump that I feel like I could probably get this picture signed by President Trump, and [it] would be the ultimate wall art. Hillary Clinton sitting behind the fake Resolute desk, never having accepted that she lost the election.
