The only thing Hillary Clinton does well is lose presidential elections. She’s done it twice now, and she’s really perfected the art form. She’s driven by her overweening ambition and seething resentment of anybody who disagrees with her about anything, so she keeps seeking the highest office in the land. Unfortunately, she’s held back by her robotic rictus grin, utter lack of charm, and decades of enabling an alleged serial sexual predator. She’s just a bad candidate and pretty obviously a bad person. Many Americans would vote for literally any other woman in the world but her. She is singularly awful, and whatever else you might not like about Trump, at least he beat her.
One of the theories about Trump’s prodigious tweeting is that he trolls his opponents into such a state of rage that they make mistakes, to his advantage. I’m skeptical that there’s any sort of planning or forethought to any of it, but sometimes it really works. It sure worked with Hillary Clinton:
I think that Crooked Hillary Clinton should enter the race to try and steal it away from Uber Left Elizabeth Warren. Only one condition. The Crooked one must explain all of her high crimes and misdemeanors including how & why she deleted 33,000 Emails AFTER getting “C” Subpoena!

Hillary just sat down with PBS’s Judy Woodruff to promote some stupid book, and she was asked to react to this. Boy, did she ever:
“You know, it truly is remarkable how obsessed he remains with me. But this latest tweet is so typical of him. Nothing has been more examined and looked at than my e-mails. We all know that. So he’s either lying or delusional, or both. There was no subpoena, as he says in a tweet this morning. So maybe there does need to be a rematch. Obviously, I can beat him again.”
She actually said this. On camera and everything:
Hillary: Obviously, I can beat him again.

Will Hillary Clinton make history as the first POTUS to run for reelection without serving a single day in office?
But don’t worry, she’s just pullin’ your leg:
in response to Pres Trump urging her to jump in the 2020 race, @HillaryClinton told me today “So maybe there does need to be a re-match. I mean obviously I can beat him again.” before saying she’s just kidding @NewsHour tonite

Just kidding! Ha ha ha, she’s only joshing, everybody. A bit of drollery.
No, she’s not kidding. She really does think she won. She doesn’t think it matters that she ignored Wisconsin and Michigan and Pennsylvania. She doesn’t think it matters that after she and all the pundits insisted Trump didn’t have a “path to 270,” he beat her anyway. In her mind, that just means the Electoral College is bad and needs to be abolished. It was her turn, the Oval Office is her birthright, and she accidentally said out loud what she really believes.
Let’s hope she does run again. It’s fun to watch her lose.
