Appearing on election lawyer Marc Elias‘ podcast “Democracy Docket” in an episode that dropped Friday, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton whined about her 2016 election loss and hurled baseless charges against former President Donald Trump, accusing him of wanting to be like Russian strongman Vladimir Putin and murder his enemies. 


Even for the divisive former First Lady, this was pretty obnoxious stuff.

A fawning Elias welcomed the “true American hero” who has “been right about everything” to his podcast, and promptly asserted that 2016 was rigged and it was the Russians who handed Trump the presidency. Guess he hasn’t heard of the Mueller Report, which proved no such thing. In fact, the infamous Steele Dossier, which Hillary’s campaign financed, has been thoroughly debunked and is basically hot garbage.

But when Hillary got on the subject of Trump and his potential second term, a screw seemed to come loose:

Putin does what [Trump] would like to do. Kill his opposition, imprison his opposition, drive journalists into exile, rule without any check or balance. 

That’s what Trump really wants.

There, she said it. She flat-out alleged her former opponent and the presumptive ’24 GOP nominee for the presidency is a wannabe murderer. This is truly sick stuff. Ironically, earlier in the podcast, she had been praising Joe Biden for not using inflammatory rhetoric against his opponents, a ridiculous lie given that Biden routinely demonizes half the country, those he sneeringly calls “the MAGA crowd.”

Watch (I’ve cued it about to the 35-minute mark where her Putin remarks begin). [My question: why can’t the multimillionaire former United States Secretary of State afford better lighting? Just have to ask.]



Clinton said that Trump just wants to be a dictator, ignoring the fact that he did not show dictatorial tendencies during his one term in office.

…we have to be very conscious of how he sees the world because in that world, he only sees strong men leaders. He sees Putin, he sees Xi, he sees Kim Jong Un in North Korea. 

Those are the people he is modeling himself after and we’ve been down this road in our, you know, world history. We sure don’t want to go down that again.

The obvious problem with her argument is that it was not Trump who showed dictatorial tendencies—it’s been Joe Biden, who she says is doing such a fantastic job as president. (Although she admitted that “the results are not always blaring and great big neon lights,” which I guess is her way of saying that the American people aren’t thrilled with Biden’s disastrous presidency but they aren’t smart enough to know what’s good for them.)

In reality, it’s Joe Biden and the Democrats who have been weaponizing the justice system and trying to take out their enemy because they fear he will beat them at the ballot box. It’s Joe Biden who scoffs at the Supreme Court and ignores their rulings; it’s Joe Biden who refuses to perform his Constitutional duty and protect the porous southern border


It’s Joe Biden who acts like a dictator—it’s not Donald Trump.

Hillary Clinton has said many repulsive things in her “I-know-better-than-you” supercilious attitude—remember the basket of deplorables?—but by saying that Trump actually wants to kill people, she may have reached a new low, even for her.
