Just when you thought no one could out-do how pathetic Hillary’s endless post-election swan song has been, the pro-pedophilia website Salon.com is giving the disgraced former candidate a run for her money.
While the Democratic party seems to have slowly woken up to the fact that they need to put the worst candidate in the history of presidential elections behind them or risk losing their party completely, Salon.com is standing by old Hil, making a cringe-worthy argument for why she should run yet again in 2020.
Try not to hurt yourself with the massive facepalm you are most likely attempting.
The article, unironically titled “Here’s your leftover turkey: The case for Hillary Clinton 2020” and subtitled, “What better way to honor the holiday than with a spiteful argument for yet another Clinton candidacy?”, begins:
Are you sick of Republicans? Or just right-wingers in general? Do you want to send a message to Washington that you aren’t going to buy into their racist, sexist, xenophobic, homophobic and classist nonsense for one second longer?
Then do the very thing that Donald Trump unintentionally encouraged in a recent tweet: Encourage Hillary Clinton to run for president in 2020!
Oooooh boy. It’s amazing someone can be so ignorant of the fact that this is pretty much exactly what Republicans, and Trump, want.
Trump has jokingly begged Hillary to run again, because he, along with at least half of America, knows how incredibly beatable she is. As the post-2016 adage goes, Trump didn’t win the election, Hillary lost it.
Salon is blissfully unaware of how repellant their beloved Hillary is. Quite the opposite, they’re convinced of her virtue and strength as a politician. The article features such cringeworthy subheaders as:
1. Hillary Clinton is the Winston Churchill to Vladimir Putin’s Adolf Hitler.
2. Hillary Clinton being elected president (at last) would monumentally piss off misogynistic trolls, and what’s not to like about that?
The Daily Wire‘s Joseph Curl shares his favorite passage, which is definitely quite a jaw-dropping gem:
By winning the popular vote convincingly in 2016, Hillary Clinton has earned the right to be considered the presumptive nominee in 2020.
As I wrote in September, Clinton is the first defeated presidential candidate to win the popular vote without being automatically considered a frontrunner in the next election. Two of the previous four popular vote-winning also-rans were actually elected in the subsequent cycle (Andrew Jackson in 1828 and Grover Cleveland in 1892), while two others were widely regarded as frontrunners before dropping out for personal reasons (Samuel Tilden and Al Gore).
Let us not forget that, for all of the smack talk about how poorly Clinton ran her campaign, she bested Trump by nearly 3 million votes. This was no razor-thin margin of victory, but a decisive expression of the American public’s preference. In terms of percentage points, her margin of victory was roughly comparable to that by which Jimmy Carter beat Gerald Ford in 1976 or George W. Bush beat John Kerry in 2004. She also held Trump to a lower percentage of the popular vote than that garnered by Mitt Romney in 2012.
As Curl, says, “Let’s hope Democrats take this fantastic advice to heart.” If they do, we might end up with the conservative president of the century!
