Hillary Flips! Has NOT Ruled Out 2020 Despite Clearly Saying So on Monday
Just yesterday, the conservative world did a little dance, and maybe even had a small smirk on their face after Hillary Clinton dropped a bombshell.
The former Secretary of State announced emphatically that she would not be seeking the Oval Office yet again in 2020. While this wasn’t necessarily surprising given her long and contentious career in the DC Swamp, it did offer us the hope of being spared of her presence in the coming months.
Now, similar to Clinton’s shuffling views on border security, the Hillary is backtracking on her statement, and leaving the door wide open once again.
A source “close with” Hillary Clinton says she has not “close[d] the door” on a 2020 presidential run.
This, obviously, is a complete reversal of what she said in an interview Monday.Trending:
“I’m not running,” she told News 12, “but I’m going to keep working and speaking and standing up for what I believe.”
Then came the pseudo-explanation, and the reason why is infuriating.
Even when asked about running for another kind of elected office, for governor or mayor, Clinton laughed it off and said, “I don’t think so.”
But now, just two days later, Clinton appears to regret making those comments, and her team is leaking a walk-back through a friendly anti-Trump reporter.
“Spoke to someone close with Clinton in contact with her today. They say she wasn’t trying to be emphatic and close the door on running when she spoke to a local reporter yesterday, and that she was surprised by how definitively it played,” the far-left Maggie Haberman of the New York Times tweeted Tuesday night.
Here’s the kicker….
“The person also says she is extremely unlikely to run, but that she remains bothered that she’s expected to close the door on it when, say, John Kerry isn’t. She has told her team she is waiting at least to see the Mueller report,” Haberman added…
Clinton waiting on the Mueller report is the equivalent of the democratic party using a pinch-hitter in a favorable pitching matchup; it certainly isn’t a player whose quality has earned them a starting position, but can be used to inflict damage only in a lopsided contest.
And we know just how much Hillary Clinton loves lopsided contests thanks to the Wikileaks revelations regarding the 2016 primaries.
