If I were Hillary Clinton, I would be laughing and feeling pretty darned good right about now! Sure, she won the election but lost the presidency, most likely due to some high-level hijinx. But Donald Trump has paid her the highest compliment she may ever receive, though I doubt he realizes it yet. How so, you ask?
For the entire six months Trump has been in office, he has not let up on his criticisms of his former opponent, Hillary Clinton. Almost weekly there is some new empty threat or meaningless accusation from his tiny-twitter-fingers. He simply cannot let it go, cannot seem to get her out of his small mind. All of which tells me one thing …
Donald Trump, the man with an ego the size of Manhattan Island, feels very insecure and very threatened by Hillary Clinton. There is simply no other possible explanation. He won the electoral vote and thereby is now sitting with his pudgy butt in the chair in the Oval Office, yet he is still bashing Hillary Clinton, a woman who can do him no harm now and who probably only wishes she could put the ugly memory behind her.
February 15th – “This Russian connection non-sense is merely an attempt to cover-up the many mistakes made in Hillary Clinton’s losing campaign.”
March 20th – “What about all of the contact with the Clinton campaign and the Russians? Also, is it true that the DNC would not let the FBI in to look?”
March 27th – “Why isn’t the House Intelligence Committee looking into the Bill & Hillary deal that allowed big Uranium to go to Russia, Russian speech…. …money to Bill, the Hillary Russian “reset,” praise of Russia by Hillary, or Podesta Russian Company. Trump Russia story is a hoax. #MAGA!”
March 28th – “Why doesn’t Fake News talk about Podesta ties to Russia as covered by @FoxNews or money from Russia to Clinton – sale of Uranium?”
April 3rd – “Did Hillary Clinton ever apologize for receiving the answers to the debate? Just asking!” and “Was the brother of John Podesta paid big money to get the sanctions on Russia lifted? Did Hillary know?”
May 31st – “Crooked Hillary Clinton now blames everybody but herself, refuses to say she was a terrible candidate. Hits Facebook & even Dems & DNC.”
June 9th – “How long did it take your staff of 823 people to think that up–and where are your 33,000 emails that you deleted?”
June 25th – “Hillary Clinton colluded with the Democratic Party in order to beat Crazy Bernie Sanders. Is she allowed to so collude? Unfair to Bernie!”
July 12th – “Why aren’t the same standards placed on the Democrats. Look what Hillary Clinton may have gotten away with. Disgraceful!”
July 16th – “HillaryClinton can illegally get the questions to the Debate & delete 33,000 emails but my son Don is being scorned by the Fake News Media?”
There’s more, but you get the picture. Donald Trump has a very unhealthy obsession for Hillary Clinton that can only stem from feeling insecure and threatened. It would be funny, were he not supposed to be focusing on the things we pay him to do, like running the country. It would be funny … if he were a 16-year-old kid who lost his best marble in a game against a girl. It would be funny if it did not speak volumes about the mentality of the man who has the nuclear codes at his tiny fingertips.
Although there is evidence to the contrary, Trump continues to claim that “In addition to winning the Electoral College in a landslide, I won the popular vote if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally”. Then in March, Trump established the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity, or as Trump himself refers to it, the Voter Fraud Committee. As per my July 1 post, the commission attempted to jeopardize our voting rights by requesting private information on every voter, but the majority of the states refused to comply. The commission held its first meeting yesterday, during which vice-chariman of he committee, Kris Kobach said that due to voter fraud, “we may never know” if Hillary won the popular vote or not. It is apparent that this commission was established, at least in part, to attempt to legitimize Trump’s unsupported claim of voter fraud, though Kobach claims otherwise.
In elections past, the losing candidate congratulates the winning candidate, then goes home to lick his/her wounds. The winning candidate then spends his time preparing for the job ahead, learning from people already in office, reading and studying. Then on January 20th, that winning candidate assumes the heavy responsibility that is the office of president. His days and sometimes nights are occupied with decisions, foreign policy, budgets, policy-making, learning the ropes, etc. But in the case of Donald Trump, he eschewed the learning process, partly because he did not understand what he was being told, and partly because he already thought he knew everything. Then once in office, rather than knuckling down to the task ahead, he chose to spend his time ruminating on two people: Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. His own insecurities are costing this nation in ways we may never fully understand. But to return to my initial point, if I were Hillary Clinton, I would be laughing long and loud, for even eight months after the election, he is still afraid of her!
