It would have been a normal day with the usual normal muckraking as the march towards Iowa neared. However, it would be anything but normal as what should have remained a docile ghost came back to haunt the stage. The Democrat’s once anointed one appeared knife in hand to try and take down a former adversary who had campaigned with her dozens of times as she choked against the most unelectable person imaginable.
We’re talking about the one and only Hillary Clinton. In her unreleased documentary, she unleashed more vitriol towards her 2016 opponent Senator Bernie Sanders (D-VT). This same person, despite the bitterness of the primary season, still showed up to endorse her and try to help the hopeful’s doomed campaign to win the presidency.
“Nobody likes him, nobody wants to work with him, he got nothing done. He was a career politician. It’s all just baloney and I feel so bad that people got sucked into it.”
The Lack of Awareness
It is clear that Hillary still doesn’t quite get how she lost to Donald Trump. Instead of reflecting on her failures, she has decided to turn her crosshairs on the people who support Senator Sanders. She can’t help but show her contempt to those who never deserved it.
Instead of being cognizant of the landscape that she helped to sculpt by losing to Trump, Hillary has chosen to punch down from her mountain privilege. To her, it’s not good enough that people are worried about the pillaging of the working class. The voters had no right to turn their noses at the ballot, much less sit at home.
What Hillary Clinton really meant was that it wasn’t her or her campaign’s fault for the election of Trump. Rather, those that have been brainwashed in hoping for a brighter tomorrow are to blame. How dare we hope for healthcare, good-paying jobs, and the fight to save us from the perils of climate change?
In Hillary’s mind, the burden of Trump is due to the Sanders voter because it was her turn to be president.
However, it’s sort of a blessing that Hillary decided to reappear. It’s a poignant reminder of how out of touch she and the rest of the establishment truly are regarding the burdens that Americans struggle with on a daily basis.
