Once a democratic deity, Hillary Clinton is no longer one of the left’s most sought after icons. In fact, it seems that the democrats are downright over her.
Clinton sauntered into the 2016 election with an air of inevitability that almost immediately began annoying even the most ardent of her supporters. Her arrogance was a major downfall that turned a great many democrats to Bernie Sanders, and independent Senator from Vermont who aligned himself with the democrats to push his socialist agenda in the party. After some collusion between Clinton and the DNC, Bernie was put to bed, further aggravating the democratic base that Clinton believed that she commanded.
Then, as she faltered both physically and mentally through the campaign against Donald Trump, the left became increasingly frustrated with her performance, and the extraordinary amount of baggage being relayed to the public via Wikileaks’ access to Clinton campaign emails. Soon, much of the democratic party was ready for Hillary to just keep her head down and trounce Trump, while also secretly hoping that her mystery illness wouldn’t cause her to keel over before November 8th.
Now, we all know how things turned out: Clinton was rejected by the American people for her unwavering corruption, and Donald Trump was hired by the nation to make America great again.
Hillary, thankfully for left, went into hiding shortly after the election, giving us all a reprieve from her incessant schoolmarm act and holier-than-thou snark. Now, as Hillary is slowly crawling back into the public spotlight, the democrats have one request of their former demagogue: Just go away.
“The consensus among former Clinton aides, former Obama aides, and Democratic strategists is that Clinton’s remarks blaming the Democratic National Committee and others for her election loss are hurting her image and the image of the Democratic Party, the Hill reported.
“’She’s apparently still really, really angry. I mean, we all are. The election was stolen from her, and that’s how she feels,’ one longtime Clinton aide said.
“’But to go out there publicly again and again and talk about it? And then blame the DNC? It’s not helpful to Democrats. It’s not helpful to the country, and I don’t think it’s helpful to her,’ the aide added.
“Former DNC Data Director Andrew Therriault was a lot less restrained in his criticism of Clinton, calling her accusations against the DNC “f***ing bulls**t.’
“Clinton has also gone on-the-record blaming former FBI Director James Comey, the Russians, the press, her primary and general election opponents, and even sexism for her election loss.
“Some aides and strategists think Clinton needs to step out of the spotlight entirely and let new leaders in the party take up that role.”
Clinton has long acted as though she were owed the presidency; an attitude that has put her at odds with more than a few former colleagues in the months since her embarrassing electoral loss.
Now, as the democratic party continues its unstoppable implosion, perhaps the only way for the party to cease the hemorrhaging will be to cut ties with Hillary altogether, forever banishing her to civilian life. If that is the case, this might be one time that we agree with a decision made by the democrats.
