It is safe to say that Hillary Clinton is undoubtedly one of the most controversial, shameful, and criminal politicians to step foot in Washington. Up until recently, she was also the poster child for the Democrat Party.
Now, people on the Left are turning against Clinton, even if some of the comments are subtle. Nancy Pelosi appeared on Fox News to talk about how she was going to turn the Democrat Party around once and for all, and she took the opportunity to take a stab at Clinton. Pelosi stated, “We’re going to hear [the Democrats’ message] with more clarity. For the first time since 2006. Congressional Democrats are in charge of the message.”
Democrats recently released a statement for their message called “a better deal.” The basis of the deal is wages will increase, prescription costs will go down, and essentially, everything will be “better.”
The problem with this message is it’s just as empty as if they had said nothing at all. It is much like Bernie Sanders promising everyone free college, but couldn’t pinpoint where the funds would come from.
It doesn’t matter how strong a politician’s message comes across. If they don’t have the means to get any of it done, it is nothing more than empty words. There was a bit at the end of Pelosi’s interview where she stated, “Now it is our turn to win the Congress for the American people.”
The problem with that statement is that they just had the chance to make everything great for the American people. Former President Obama’s eight years were horrific. Businesses and individuals suffered alike under harsh and strange conditions he inflicted.
Pelosi is not the only one throwing Clinton under the bus. Her long time colleague, Chuck Schumer, also discredited her. According to The Washington Post, Schumer stated that “When you lose to somebody who has 40% popularity, you don’t blame other things–Comey, Russia– you blame yourself.”
It’s surprising that the top ranking Democrat in the Senate would pull a punch on Clinton. She has spoken publicly a few times since losing the presidential race.
Each time Clinton speaks, she blames someone–or something– else for losing the election. USA Today reported that she blamed James Comey, the former FBI Director, for her loss to President Trump.
It didn’t stop there though. PBS stated that she also blamed misogyny and Russia for her election loss.
It seems as if the Democrats are finally getting rowdy enough to disown their poster child. It won’t look good for Clinton if she decides to try and make a 2020 presidential run. Since that doesn’t seem to be the case, it is worth wondering who the Democrats will bring in to represent their party.
