Hillary Clinton: Trump is an 'illegitimate president'

Source: Washington Post

Hillary Clinton dismissed President Trump as an “illegitimate president” and suggested that “he knows” that he stole the 2016 presidential election in a CBS News interview to be aired Sunday.

The former secretary of state, who lost the presidency to Trump, offered a scathing assessment of the president, his 2016 win and the latest allegations that he tried to obtain incriminating information from a foreign government about Joe Biden, a possible 2020 opponent, according to excerpts released by CBS from a wide-ranging pretaped interview for its “Sunday Morning” show,

Clinton was asked whether it angers her that none of the current Democratic candidates invoke her on the campaign trail while Trump’s rally crowds still break out into “lock her up” chants.

“No, it doesn’t kill me because he knows he’s an illegitimate president,” she said. “I believe he understands that the many varying tactics they used, from voter suppression and voter purging to hacking to the false stories — he knows that — there were just a bunch of different reasons why the election turned out like it did.”

sub·ter·fuge
/ˈsəbtərˌfyo͞oj/
deceit used in order to achieve one's goal.
"he had to use subterfuge and bluff on many occasions"

Is no president. It's a thug that happens to be a trust fund baby that's entertaining enough to keep its poorly educated cult amused and distracted while the foot soldiers of the donor class deconstruct our government and turn this country into something unrecognizable.

I'm not bitter.

This was supposed to be the Producers--he was supposed to get money for things like a Border Wall he would never build. Bt then his boss Putin stole the election for him.

I have tried to find that segment of news coverage but it seems to have disappeared. If anyone can find it, please share it.

a viral meme in the body of public discourse.

After all, even if much of the public doesn't follow all the suspicious and proven aspects of the 2016 theft, everyone should NOW understand he was illegally looking for foreign assistance from Ukraine for his personal political benefit. And if that's clear, then it becomes easier to believe he's been doing that all along...likely since 2015.

in exposing the genocide that Putin supported in Russia. And the fear that she would intervene if Russia tried to invade the Baltic States. Oh shit! If Trump is impeached, Putin may not be able to invade the Baltics. Guess he will have to move up his plans.

By far IMO.

People don't realize that because the GOP turned on him. But they turned on him, and lashed out at the FBI, to cover up the fact that it was GOP influence at the FBI that drove the fake email scandal.

And as a result, Trump will very well end up in Prison. If he did not "win", he would have not been in legal trouble. Karma.

Republicans will NEVER “play nice”. You don’t behave cordially with bullies.

Hillary and all who succeeded the very real Clinton witch hunt from the 90’s should have learned that some time ago.

Oh and the clowns and MAGAts will come out in full force following this. But they cannot possibly get any nastier so there’s that ...
