You’ll have to forgive Grandma — she’s apparently off her meds again and has traded in her pants suit for a pair of crazy pants.
The Washington Post’s Aaron Blake tweeted this gem earlier today:
Maybe you’re thinking, “Whoa, fake news, right?”
The two-time failed presidential contender and confessed chardonnay abuser appeared on Obama campaign manager David Plouffe’s podcast yesterday, where she blurted out stuff worthy of an unhinged Reddit thread. She told Plouffe she believes the Russians have “got their eye on someone who’s currently in the Democratic primary and are grooming her to be the third-party candidate.” Apparently referring to Tulsi Gabbard, Clinton said she is “the favorite of the Russians. They have a bunch of sites and bots and other ways of supporting her so far.” Clinton didn’t actually name Gabbard, but the former FLOTUS’s intent is clear, coming on the heels of the NYT’s similar smear-job on the Hawaii congresswoman.
For her part, Gabbard called the smears “totally despicable” during Tuesday’s presidential debate, but they’re kind of funny coming from Clinton. You’ll remember that it was Hillary who once tried (and failed) to present a “reset” button to the Putin regime, back when she was Barack “Mr. Flexible” Obama’s SecState.
Also according to Clinton’s political lexicon, Green Party candidate Jill Stein is a full-on “Russian asset.” Just in case you weren’t sure what Clinton meant by that, she then added, “I mean totally.” Whoa, like, for sure?
Actually, the part about Stein rings kind of true, since she’s a committed opponent of fracking, which drives down energy prices and keep Russia’s coffers half-empty. Then again, Clinton also came out against fracking during her 2016 race. So maybe it’s Hillary who’s the real Russian agent.
See how easy it is to play this game? Russians, dontchya know — they’re everywhere.
There’s a sad angle to this story, though. Clinton and the MSM-DNC came up with the whole RUSSIA!RUSSIA!RUSSIA! narrative to distract from her embarrassing, “impossible” loss to Donald Trump in 2016, and to tarnish his presidency. #Resist by any means necessary, even by selling obvious lies and smears. But it seems that age and cheap white wine have finally caught up to Mrs. Clinton, who apparently now believes her own s*** is actually Shinola.
The poor dear — won’t someone please hustle her off the stage before she embarrasses herself further?
