Hillary Will Run Again
Reinventing herself as a liberal firebrand, Mrs. Clinton will easily capture the 2020 nomination.

Look, Hillary supporters. I'm going to be honest with you. We're done with corporate shill candidates. We were done with corporate shill candidates back in 2016, but you -- YOU -- refused to listen while the orange buffoon capitalized on populism, which is what Hillary should have done. She didn't swing toward populism because she is not a fucking liberal!!! She is a center-right 1960s era Republican and she lost to a Republican extremist pretending to be a populist.

"But her e-mails..." I hear you bluster condescendingly. You all sound like the Trump cultists! It was never about her e-mails. There were a thousand reasons to dislike Hillary and you're all being every bit as deluded and ingorant as any Trumpster by ignoring all of it and attacking what you think is the weakest argument. Yes, Hillary deleted some e-mails that were under subpoena. Yes, that is obstruction of justice -- the same crime Donald Trump committed when he fired James Comey.

All of that aside, you actually liked her corporate shilling? You liked her cheating to win the primaries? You liked her rich elitist campaign strategy? Yes, you do like these unpopular things and you don't get to say otherwise if you voted for it and you still want her to be president now.

I didn't vote for Hillary's policies. I only voted against Trump.

You don't get to make that distinction and not also apply to be 3rd party voters! They also voted against Trump. The problem is that, according to you, they didn't for the right person. If your vote for Hillary is so fucking hard to defend that you must invent these one-liners and divert the blame, you are no different than a Trump cultist because that is exactly how they behave!

You got your way when Hillary "won" (sic) *cough*cheated*cough* the 2016 Democratic primary. This woman was unpopular before the election. She has a lower approval rating than Trump right now. You can argue whether or not it is deserved, but that doesn't change the reality. Voters want populism and Hillary is precisely not that, which is the biggest reason why she lost in 2016. Yet some of you want to run with her again!? Clearly Donald Trump is not alone in having his own cult.
