As former President Donald Trump surges in public opinion and polls, surpassing presumed opposition President Joe Biden, not only among Republicans but also the general public, Hillary Clinton has recently launched an offensive against Trump, Republicans, and any political party other than the Democrats in the White House.
Clinton compared former president supporters to cult members and warned that they may require formal “deprogramming” in an interview with CNN this month. Given the recent government smoke and mirrors during Joe Biden’s administration, this is an extremely broad characterization.
Clinton’s characterization of Trump as having “no credibility left” and “only himself in this” resembled a comedic performance. The prevailing sentiment in America is in favor of Trump’s re-election to the White House. It is indisputable which individuals are capitalizing on their positions of authority to benefit the American people, as their wealth is not in question. Clinton ought to be more circumspect with her language.
In response to Clinton’s remarks, Florida Republican Representative Byron Donalds, a member of the MAGA “cult,” is not at a loss for words.
After Hillary Clinton referred to numerous Republican Party members who defended former President Donald Trump as a “cult” in her remarks, he incinerated the candidate for the presidency twice over her remarks.
“How do you feel about being told you’re in a cult?” Donalds was asked.
“I stopped caring about what Hillary Clinton had to say long ago because she lost a long, long time ago,” Donalds replied. “And she’s largely irrelevant as far as I’m concerned. But to a broader level, since Hillary wants to engage, allow me to engage,” Donalds began.
“You lied multiple times, you destroyed emails, you destroyed evidence, and then you laundered phony information that you knew was phony into the intelligence community because you were scared you were going to lose,” Donalds added. “You did all this and you still lost, so I’m not going to listen to Hillary Clinton about who I should and should not support.”
“She has lied to the American people repeatedly. She used our government to spy on the campaign of one of her opponents. Yes, America, she did that. So if people like talking about Watergate and Nixon, look no further than Hillary Clinton and the Crossfire Hurricane.”
In addition to covering Donaldson’s response, Conservative Brief also documented another of Clinton’s recent assaults.
Another frontal assault was made by Clinton last week on an episode of The View, in which she asserted that another term of Trump in the White House would “end our country as we know it.”
Sunny Hostin asked Clinton what she thought a second Trump term would look like. “I can’t even think of that. Because I think it would be the end of our country as we know it,” Clinton began. “And I don’t say that lightly.”
In fact, Clinton called Trump an “illegitimate president” for years after his victory, although on The View she cast herself in a gracious light.
“I tried really hard, but then literally from his inauguration on, it was nothing but, you know, accusing people of things, making up facts,” she added. “Everything that I worried about I saw unfolding, and so I think that he’d be even worse now because he was somewhat restrained—believe it or not—in the first term by people who he hired because he thought they would go along with him and they stood up to him.”
Conservative Brief noted that it is improbable Clinton, should she ever assume the presidency, would tolerate appointees who ultimately held opposing views on her policies, as no other president in the modern era has done.
She continued: “Now, he’s going to—if he were ever near the Oval Office again—find people who have no principles, no conscience, who are totally tied to his fortunes, literally, and therefore would do whatever he said. And so the wreckage is almost unimaginable.”
Clinton continued by stating that aspiring autocrats would “shut things down” and imprison political opponents, similar to how Democratic governors shut down their states during COVID and how Biden administration officials have detained Capitol demonstrators since January 6 without conducting trials.
“You know, when I was secretary of state, I used to talk about one and done, and what I meant by that is that people would get legitimately elected, and then they would try to do away with elections, and do away with opposition, and so away with a free press, and you could see it in certain countries,” Clinton said.
“Trump is telling us what he intends to do,” Clinton said, adding, “Take him at his word.”
Hillary, certainly accept his word as true. Considering the opposition he has encountered from Democrats, it is difficult to comprehend how anyone could condemn his actions.
