It seems whenever 2016 Democratic presidential nominee and former first lady Hillary Clinton has been popping up in public lately, it’s only with a bad word to say about somebody.
Most recently, she made a wisecrack at her successor in the East Wing of the White House, First Lady Melania Trump.
Clinton also took another shot at her erstwhile competitor for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination, Sen Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.)
“I think she should look closer to home,” Clinton told Andy Cohen on his Watch What Happens Live when asked how she feels about the first lady’s anti-cyberbullying initiative, suggesting she should examine her husband’s online behavior.
In December, the president targeted 16-year-old climate activist Greta Thunberg after she won Time magazine “person of the year,” posting on Twitter that the activist must work on her “Anger Management problem.” Despite championing her initiative that promotes internet kindness, Melania Trump remained quiet.
And after gratuitously slamming Sanders in January–by saying in an interview right as he was campaigning for his second bid for the nomination that “Nobody likes him, nobody wants to work with him, he got nothing done”–Hillary just came out again to knock him in an interview Friday on CNN, saying: “As I’ve said many times, I do not think he’s our strongest nominee against Donald Trump.”
A look back at Hillary’s most recent line of venom and criticism goes back at least as far as late last year.
It began with an almost bizarre catfight she began with Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii), who briefly ran a credible (visible?) campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination herself this time, before flaming out.
Clinton, somewhat indirectly, accused Gabbard of being a “Russian asset” in the Russian campaign to interfere in the US presidential election this year, as they did four years ago.
That war of words morphed into an almost Keystone Kops style comedy, in which Gabbard sued Clinton $50 million for her “Russian asset” remarks, but Hillary evaded being served with the lawsuit as Secret Service agents turned away the process servers.
