Thankfully Hillary Clinton didn't run for president again this year.
By the way, don't misconstrue that to think that I believe she would win against President Trump...far from it. I say thankfully only because I'm tired of seeing her enough already.
She's the annoying sweat bee that just keeps flying around and won't go away no matter how much you swat at it.
But maybe we shouldn't count her out yet based on an interview Clinton did with Variety.
Variety asked Clinton, I know you’re not running for president, but do you ever feel the urge to think: “I could beat Donald Trump if I were running.”
Clinton responded, "Yeah. I certainly feel the urge because I feel the 2016 election was a really odd time and an odd outcome. And the more we learn, the more that seems to be the case. But I’m going to support the people who are running now and do everything I can to help elect the Democratic nominee."
She made similar comments earlier this month after she prompted a whirlwind of criticism for remarks she made about Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), a leading 2020 Democratic presidential contender, in her forthcoming Hulu docu-series, which is set to drop on the streaming platform in early March.
In the documentary, she said that "nobody likes Sanders [or] wants to work with him,” adding: “He was a career politician. It's all just baloney, and I feel so bad that people got sucked into it.”
After receiving backlash for the comments, which ended up sparking viral praise for Sanders among his fans on Twitter, Clinton vowed to support whichever Democratic candidate wins the nomination.
“I thought everyone wanted my authentic, unvarnished views!” she tweeted. “But to be serious, the number one priority for our country and world is retiring Trump, and, as I always have, I will do whatever I can to support our nominee.” (The Hill)
