Clinton Claims ‘Most Republicans’ Want To See Trump Lose the Election but They ‘Can’t Say It Publicly’

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton thinks Republicans would not be too upset if President Donald Trump loses the 2020 presidential election. 

In an interview with The New York Times Opinion podcast, “Sway,” Clinton told host Kara Swisher, “Most Republicans are going to want to close the page,” Axios reports.

“They want to see him gone as much as we do, but they can’t say it publicly,” she added. 

She also took a shot at how the president has handled the coronavirus pandemic and argued she would have handled it better, “I have no doubt, especially if it were me. I have no doubt. I mean, I was born for that.”

She also said that she “can’t entertain the idea of him winning. … It would cause cognitive dissonance of a grave degree.”

“[I]t makes me literally sick to my stomach to think that we’d have four more years of this abuse and destruction of our institutions. And damaging of our norms and our values. And lessening of our leadership. And the list goes on,” she added.

Finally, she said, “I think I live rent-free in his head.”

Clinton’s daughter, Chelsea Clinton, earlier this month claimed that Trump “obsessed” with his former rival. She said, “He talks about her in interviews. He talks about her in rallies. He tweets about her. And I think it’s really clear that he has never gotten over the fact that she won the popular vote by more than 3 million votes.”

While Republican officials have increasingly become more reluctant to criticize the president in the last two years, some are willing to speak out. 

In a call with constituents, Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) blasted Trump for “the way he kisses dictators’ butts. I mean, the way he ignores that the Uighurs are in literal concentration camps in Xinjiang. Right now, he hasn’t lifted a finger on behalf of the Hong-Kongers.”

“I mean he and I have a very different foreign policy. It isn’t just that he fails to lead our allies. It’s that the United States now regularly sells out our allies under his leadership, the way he treats women, spends like a drunken sailor. The ways I criticize President Obama for that kind of spending; I’ve criticized President Trump for as well. He mocks evangelicals behind closed doors. His family has treated the presidency like a business opportunity. He’s flirted with white supremacists.”

Throughout his presidency, Trump has an average of 87% support among Republican voters. Still, polls show the president appears to be losing support among seniors, a demographic that was key to his victory in 2016. 

Additionally, national polls show Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden holds an eight-point lead over the president.

  1. I guess I confused Lying Paul The Emeffer.

    Holding on to a women’s skirt means something different than what YOU seem to think that it means.

  2. Says the lady who was overly optimistic that she would win in 16 and still whines about it.

  3. Sadly, not paying bills for services rendered is the “Trump way.” Litigation is also the “Trump way.” The Trump campaign has sued PA over 4 issues and lost them all.

  4. King Donald The Loser’s campaign is broke. How broke do you ask?

    His Majesty’s campaign is so broke that they still owe cities for costs involved with previous excursions into those cities, such as $80,000 to Tuscon. They owe well over $150,000 just to cities where he held rallies a while ago.

    His Majesty’s campaign is so broke that they are calling up people that THEY have chosen to sue, such as Amorosa for $1 million, and they now want to settle for a fraction of that amount ($52,000).

    He has a bunch of lawsuits that he could lose because his campaign can’t afford legal fees and regular lawyer fees. This is also probably quite illegal, but who is counting nowadays?

    What it looks like he is doing is hiring crappy back-alley lawyers, getting bad advice, running up costs so that the campaign can declare bankruptcy, and just not pay bills generally, as he is known to do.

    And THIS is the guy you want to run this country “like a business”? You are such fools. Such fools.

    We MUST elect better politicians.
