Hillary Teases a 2020 Run: I Want to ‘Retire’ Trump

On Tuesday, failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton told BBC Radio 5 Live that she is under “enormous pressure” to run against incumbent President Trump for the White House in 2020.

Asked about her future in politics, Hillary replied, “I feel a sense of responsibility partly because, you know, my name was on the ballot, I got more votes, but ended up losing to the current incumbent in the White House who I think is really undermining our democracy in very fundamental ways. And I want to retire him.”

When asked if she is absolutely ruling out a 2020 bid, Clinton said, “I, as I say, never, never, never say never. I will certainly tell you. I’m under enormous pressure from many, many, many people to think about it. But as of this moment, sitting here in this studio talking to you, that is absolutely not in my plans.”

Hillary is being coy, if not outright disingenuous. Her lust for presidential power is bottomless, and her bitter refusal to accept the loss to upstart populist Trump has been evident since election night itself.

Sanders, AOC Back Bolivian Leftist Morales After Resignation

Aging Communist Bernie Sanders and avowed socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) issued statements of support on Monday for Bolivian strongman Evo Morales following his resignation.

On Sunday after nearly 14 years in power, Morales chose to resign in the wake of revelations of voter fraud in the October 20 election granting him an unprecedented fourth term. The Bolivian military had urged Morales to step down, prompting angry leftists to complain.

“I am very concerned about what appears to be a coup in Bolivia, where the military, after weeks of political unrest, intervened to remove President Evo Morales,” Sanders tweeted. “What’s happening right now in Bolivia isn’t democracy, it’s a coup,” AOC wrote. “The people of Bolivia deserve free, fair, and peaceful elections – not violent seizures of power.”

Sen. Marco Rubio offered some perspective, noting that the election was unconstitutional, evidence of voting irregularities” was rampant, and Morales left only after the military “refused his orders to attack protestors.”

Durbin: Trump ‘Has Been so Cruel When It Comes to Immigration’

On MSNBC’s Morning Joe on Tuesday, Sen. Dick Durbin commented on the legal case against the Trump administration for trying to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, accusing Trump of being “so cruel when it comes to immigration.”

“Many of the people in DACA, no longer very young, are far from ‘angels,'” Trump tweeted Tuesday. “Some are very tough, hardened criminals.” But he then went on to say that “[i]f Supreme Court remedies with overturn, a deal will be made with Dems for them to stay!”

“Willie, it’s a pathetic charge to think that each and every one of these [780,000 or 790,000] have gone through a thorough criminal background check to qualify for this protection,” Durbin told the MSNBC host. “And for the president to call them toughened, hardened criminals is just pathetic.”

He added, “[Trump] has been so cruel when it comes to immigration, particularly when it comes to children and young people.” No, he has just started enforcing the law, which open-borders Democrats consider cruelty.

De Blasio: Bloomberg ‘Epitomizes the Status Quo’

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio slammed his predecessor Michael Bloomberg, who is contemplating a 2020 run for the presidency, arguing that the Democrat Party should not nominate “a billionaire who epitomizes the status quo.”

“When he was mayor he had no understanding of the inequality crisis. I think he was absolutely tone deaf to what working people are going through in this city,” de Blasio told reporters on Monday.

“Would he be better than Donald Trump? Of course. Should he be the Democratic nominee? No,” he added. “This is a Democratic Party today that’s getting more progressive, that wants to address the concerns of working people, that does not accept the status quo.”

“There’s no way in the world we should nominate a billionaire who epitomizes the status quo,” said the millionaire de Blasio, who ended his own presidential bid in September. “I can certainly prefer him over Donald Trump. But does he represent today’s Democratic Party? Of course not, not even close.”

Cummings’ Widow Will Run for His Congressional Seat

As expected, Dr. Maya Rockeymoore Cummings, widow of the late Rep. Elijah Cummings, has announced she will run for his empty Congressional seat.

“I’m going to run this race and I’m going to run it hard, as if he’s still right here by my side,” Mrs. Cummings told the Baltimore Sun, according to Breitbart News. Her husband, who had represented Maryland’s 7th Congressional District since 1996, passed away at the age of 68 on October 17.

“I am a fighter. I don’t shy away from the label,” she stated. “I will continue to press on and fight. I will fight the Trump administration, which is trying to undermine the social safety net.” Prior to Elijah’s death, Trump had sparred with him on social media for allowing his Baltimore district to decay into rat-infested poverty.

Rockeymoore Cummings will face competition from at least three Republicans and eight other Democrats for the seat in a special election scheduled for April 28. The winner will complete Cumming’s term, which ends in January 2021.

Omar Slammed For Another Antisemitic ‘Dog Whistle’

Somali-born Rep. Ilhan Omar has once again drawn fire for an anti-Semitic remark — this time for commenting on an endorsement received by former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg for president.

On Saturday, Omar responded to an article quoting billionaire hedge fund manager Leon Cooperman stating he would support Bloomberg’s 2020 White House bid. Both men are Jewish.

“I wonder why?” the Muslim Omar wrote on Twitter. Her suggestion was clear to many on social media, such as Michael Dickson, executive director of Stand with Us, an organization that fights anti-Semitism. “I suppose you think it’s all about the Benjamins,” he tweeted, referring to a previous Omar tweet stereotyping Jews as greedy. “We get your insinuation. True to form.”

Muslim anti-Israel activist Linda Sarsour predictably defended Omar, tweeting, “Oh for God’s sake, stop this ridiculousness. This obsession with every word Ilhan says or tweets is tired and it’s getting old.” As old as Jew-hatred itself.
