Hillary Clinton is everywhere right now, hitting all the talk shows as she hawks yet another book.
On one of her endless stops, the two-time presidential loser said that staying with her husband despite his infidelity and lies was the “gutsiest” act of her life.
“Oh, boy, I think the gutsiest thing I’ve ever done, well, personally — make the decision to stay in my marriage. Publicly, politically run for president. And keep going. Just get up every day and keep going,” Clinton told “Good Morning America” on Tuesday.
Clinton stood by her man after he had an affair with a White House intern half his age, Monica Lewinsky. Bill Clinton later committed perjury, which led to his impeachment in the House. The Senate did not convict him so he remained in office.
Later in the week, on ABC’s The View, she was asked about that “gutsiest” decision.
“You know, for some people that I’ve known the right thing was take your kids and go, clean out your bank accounts, don’t look back. For other people, you know, get into a negotiation and figure out whether you want to stay,” she said. “In my case, after really hard, hard thinking about it, counseling, praying, all the things that I did and that we went through, I just decided it was the right decision for me but that doesn’t mean it was an easy decision. It was a really hard decision.”
Then she said her decision was similar to parents deciding how to handle a situation in which their children told them they are transgender.
“Sometimes when your child has an issue — I had a friend a few years ago who called up and said ‘I don’t know who to talk to about this, but my little girl wants to be a boy. What do I do?’ And, you know, several of us kind of — we didn’t know what to do, we never had a friend who’d faced that before. Several of us kind of read everything and talked to people and gave her advice and it was really gutsy for her to say OK, ‘I’m going to respect the feelings of my child as hard as it is for me to understand this.’
“So, I think when the question was asked, personally, everybody faces a moment of decision, and you have to reach deep down inside and decide what’s right for you to do and hopefully it’s reached with love and understanding,” she said.
With Hillary appearing everywhere last week, she has renewed speculation that she will jump into the 2020 race for the Democratic presidential nomination. “She is running. She’s just trying to decide how to fit her way in,” Steve Bannon, former Trump adviser, told Fox Business last week.
“Hillary Clinton is doing a whole thing,” Bannon said. “A meeting this week for a book, she said he’s an illegal president, illegitimate president, he’s a clear and present danger.”
Back in March, President Trump expressed sadness that Hillary had announced she wasn’t running. “(Crooked) Hillary Clinton confirms she will not run in 2020, rules out a third bid for White House.” Aw-shucks, does that mean I won’t get to run against her again? She will be sorely missed!” Trump wrote on Twitter.
