Is Hillary Clinton gearing up for a third presidential run?
All signs point to…potentially.
Clinton recently declared she’d “like to be president,” and is confident a Democrat will defeat Trump in 2020.
Here’s the scoop:
During a Friday evening Q&A with Recode’s Kara Swisher, the subject of the next presidential election came up.
“We’re going to talk about 2020 in a minute — do you want to run again?” Swisher asked.
“No,” Clinton responded coyly, triggering groans from admirers. “No.”
“Well, I— well, I’d like to be president,” she admitted, bursting into laughter and cackles.
“Look, I think, hopefully, when we have a Democrat in the Oval Office in January of 2021, there’s going to be so much work to be done.”
Celebrity lawyer Michael Avenatti, who has lost big cases with Stormy Daniels against President Trump and defended a Brett Kavanaugh accuser, said the Democrat nominee should be a “white male.”
From National Review:
Does . . . Michael Avenatti really operate in the best interests of his clients? Are these women better off now than before they met him?
The irony is that might not even be Thursday’s most damaging news story for Avenatti. He sat down for an interview with Time magazine, and basically said the Democratic party shouldn’t nominate a woman or a minority for president in 2020.
“I think it better be a white male,” Avenatti said of the 2020 Democratic presidential nominee. “When you have a white male making the arguments, they carry more weight. Should they carry more weight? Absolutely not. But do they? Yes.”
Besides shameless and self-serving — par for the course for Avenatti — his argument is historically illiterate. We just had a two-term African-American president! Women have been elected to statewide offices in 49 out of the 50 states. The holdout is that notorious bastion of right-wing misogyny . . . er, Vermont. Forty states have elected minorities to statewide office. The electorate didn’t have a problem with a woman president. The electorate had a problem with that particular woman as president.
Then Avenatti told the Daily Caller that he never made such a statement. The Time interview describes him “leaning back in an easy chair in his well-appointed New Hampshire hotel suite” and the article begins with describing Avenatti at a mid-August event in New Hampshire.
