Hillary Clinton has now crossed over from conspiracy theorist to straight up delusional.
The two-time loser appeared Saturday with husband Bill Clinton at The Forum in Los Angeles for another installment of their national tour, “An Evening With the Clintons.” Sitting in comfy chairs on stage, actor Ted Danson, who played host for the evening, asked Hillary what advice she would give to the slew of 2020 presidential candidates now running for the Democratic nomination.
“Keep your eye on the whole landscape as it is moving forward,” she said. “I think it’s also critical to understand that, as I’ve been telling candidates who have come to see me, you can run the best campaign, you can even become the nominee, and you can have the election stolen from you.”
The crowd whooped. “And that, my friends, has nothing to do with the economy, does it?” she continued. “And so part of our challenge is to understand what it will take to put together not just the popular vote but the electoral college” as well.
Hillary got crushed in the Electoral College in the 2016 election, losing to Republican Donald Trump in a landslide, 304- 227. She did win the popular vote, but Trump won 2,626 counties nationwide to Clinton’s 487 counties — another landslide.
Clinton lost states that are usually won by Democrats, like Wisconsin — which she never visited during the campaign — and Michigan. And she lost other swing states, too, like Ohio, Florida and Pennsylvania. Yet she has blamed the Russians for colluding with the Trump campaign to somehow — inexplicably — prompt millions in those states to vote for Trump.
Hillary has continued to press those claims during her flagging tour, questioning how Trump could continue to talk with Russian President Vladimir Putin after the release of the report from special counsel Robert Mueller.
Mueller’s report, she said, “not only decisively proves, but goes chapter and verse about how the Russians — in the words of the report — conducted ‘a sweeping and systemic interference in our election,'” she said, according to the Seattle Times. “And then you wake up and your president is spending an hour on the phone with Vladimir Putin, who was the mastermind of the interference and attack on our election.”
And she isn’t the only Democrat still claiming victory after losing. Georgia Democrat Stacey Abrams on Friday again asserted that she won the state’s 2018 gubernatorial race, despite losing the election to Brian Kemp.
“I’m here to tell you a secret that makes Breitbart and [Fox News host] Tucker Carlson go crazy: We won,” Abrams said, according to The Houston Chronicle. “I am not delusional. I know I am not the governor of Georgia — possibly yet.”
The Clintons’ tour did not go so well, as The Daily Wire reported last week. “A winter-long hiatus has not improved demand for tickets to Bill and Hillary Clinton’s joint ‘book tour,’ and seats can be had for the pair’s final performances for less than $10.”
On Friday night, the New York Post reports, organizers were forced to “slash listed prices and even offer discount ducats through Groupon to boost sales” at Seattle’s WaMu Theater. Even the best seats in the house, which once cost around $1700, were available Friday night for around $800 — more than half off the suggested retail price.
Even “The West Wing’s” Bradley Whitford, who emceed the event and conducted the interview with Bill and Hillary Clinton couldn’t manage to salvage the affair.
Secondary ticket marketplace, StubHub, has tickets for Saturday evening’s show in LA available for a mere $6 — and that’s for a floor seat. Similar-priced tickets are available in the arena’s first and second bowls. The best ticket currently available on StubHub — a third row, middle, floor section seat — is just $47.50.
