Four years after getting her clock cleaned by President Trump in the 2016 election, Hillary Clinton said she has the “urge” to run again.
The former secretary of state and failed Democrat presidential candidate said during an interview with Variety she thinks she has what it takes.
“I could beat Donald Trump if I were running.”
“Yeah. I certainly feel the urge because I feel the 2016 election was a really odd time and an odd outcome,” she told the magazine in an interview published online Monday.
“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.”
“I think there’s a story now to be told. Before he was a blank slate. He was a guy that people saw on their TVs. As you know, he was a reality TV star,” Clinton said, according to the Associated Press. “Now I think there’s a record that he’s going to have to be held accountable for.”
Clinton then slammed the Electoral College claiming “the person who gets the most votes should win.”
Clinton said that her comments about Senator Bernie Sanders have nothing to do with the Democrat presidential primary.
“I think we did that interview about a year and a half ago. I wasn’t thinking about the election by any means. I’ve said I’m going to support the nominee,” she said of Sanders, who ran against her during the 2016 Democratic primary.
“But I do think it’s important to look at somebody’s record and look at what they’ve gotten done and see whether you agree with that or not. I think that’s what every voter paying attention should do,” Clinton added.
I must admit I laughed when Hillary said she thought she could win this time. The woman doesn’t have a prayer.
