Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, September 11, 2017

Former secretary of state Hillary Clinton said Sunday that she will not pursue the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination. "I am done with being a candidate," Clinton said on CBS's Sunday Morning. Clinton -- who on Tuesday will release What Happened, her memoir of the 2016 campaign -- does plan to stay involved in national politics, just not as an "active politician" who may launch a campaign. "But I am not done with politics because I literally believe that our country's future is at stake," she said in an interview with Jane Pauley.

Clinton also was critical of President Trump's preparedness for the White House.

"We have a reality show that leads to the election of a president. He ends up in the Oval Office. He says, 'Boy, it's so much harder than I thought it would be. This is really tough. I had no idea,'" Clinton said. "Well, yeah, because it's not a show. It's real. It's reality, for sure."

The former Democratic nominee said she has moved on from her 2016 election loss but acknowledged that the sting of defeat has not entirely faded away.

The former Democratic nominee said she has moved on from her 2016 election loss but acknowledged that the sting of defeat has not entirely faded away.

The fact that she has a book explaining away her loss coming out suggests she's hardly moved on.

#1 is still running a campaign against her whilst insisting that she hasn't moved on.

Start the chant, #1.

"Lock her up! LOCK HER UP!!!"

It isn't "a campaign against her" if one is commenting on her own words.

I don't believe a word she says. She's running in 2020 BANK ON IT!!!!!

That is, unless there should be an unfortunate string of misfortunes to leading Dem candidates, and The People clamor for me to run.

She was done four years ago.

Yap.

Reading or listening to her words and then speculating that she's lying is simply "commenting on her own words."

It's cool. Maybe one day you will be able to admit that you are obsessed with Hillary Clinton. Your friends and family wish you would admit that you have the sickness and seek help.

Hillary Clinton: ‘I Am Done With Being a Candidate'

Couldn't trust a word she said back then, no reason to trust whichever direction she leans today.

And #11 is still campaigning against the person who says she isn't running for any office anymore.

"Lock her up! LOCK HER UP!!!"

She may be done running for office. But Hillary doesn't seem to be finished damaging the chances of other progressives.

But you believe every lie Trump tells. The "Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy" was able over 25 years of constant repetition to successfully demonize Hillary to the point that they see her as the liar, when everything out of Trump's mouth is worthy of "Pants On Fire". When are they going to demand that Trump be questioned under oath for 11 hours?

Hillary statements are only true 24% of the time (politifact). If we're playing the odds, well...

And, according to politifact, Trump's statements are only true 5% of the time.

Hillary's True + Mostly True = 50%

Trump's True + Mostly True = 17%

Hillary's Mostly False + False + Pants on Fire = 31%

Trump's Mostly False + False + Pants on Fire = 69%

Which one was/is the biggest liar, again?

Just go away and make the money off your cry baby book because the bribe funds have dried up at the Clinton Foundation.

I'll bet you wish you could write a book about yourself and make $millions, like Hillary and Barack can. Do you have anything to say that people would pay money to hear/read?

The Clinton's teamed with the Republicans to dismantle the new deal. They were able to accomplish more legislatively than any Republican ever. Republicans respond honestly and viciously to poverty, Democrats succeed by being two faced.

Donnie Drumpsterfire has always been the biggest liar.

It's how he won ignorant, middle America.

Hillary is a liar too. She just needed to lie bigger and better.

Ok so she's not running again. Yay!!!!! Any bets that, she'll still endorse, campaign, and raise money for the next DNC person, just so she can get her face on tv again and feel important? Where's corky? People are talking about his girl....

32, corky, true to form, shows that reality has very little to do with his words. I would imagine there is a lot of bitter salty drivel over the past 10 months

So let me just add a quick observation, to corky and bcc cadence and all the other manipulated, sad neoliberals: NYA NyaNYA, nya-nya, NYA!!! TOLD YOU SO TOLD YOU SO TOLD YOU SOOOOOOOO!!!!

But be happy! If you are really progressive, the base has a chance of forming with someone playing boogeyman instead of acting like a left wing person when everyTHING She does is more reactionary than the boogeyman

If u can't be happy at least use this to recalibrate your confirmation bias away from hypocritical

If u can learn those things, I have made a good first step...

Lol I'm not progressive just tired of hearing about HRC. The old nags been lame for a while yet the DNC keeps beating this horse to see if it runs again...
