Clinton: ‘I would have been
seen as a genius’ if I won

The Hill, by Max Greenwood

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 9/12/2017 4:57:08 PM

Hillary Clinton said Tuesday that she would have been called a "genius" and her campaign "perfect" if she had won the 2016 presidential election. In an interview with WNYC, the former secretary of State reflected on being the first female presidential nominee of a major political party. She said that because of the hurdles women face, she would have been hailed as brilliant if she won. "I thought it was pretty revolutionary that I was the first woman to have a realistic chance of becoming president,” Clinton said. “So I don’t know how any woman who is not familiar to

No; she´d have been seen as a vote-rigging, power-crazed thief in a nation where in order to show how big-hearted we are, we allow illegal aliens and others to vote as many times as they please.

Att Hillary...I don´t think I have to remind you that the only reason Obama made you Secretary of State was to to keep you as far away from him as possible. He could not stand to be around you. Remember all those trips to nowhere after the 2008 election?

Trump can not stand to be around you.You are a NASTY WOMAN...Genius

Even a punch drunk boxer knows when to shut up about being a contender.

Hillary doesn´t.

Sorry, Hillary, you´re just not very smart.

This woman is a complete idiot. She was supposed to have a walk to becoming president, how does that equate to being a genius if she won? Also, if she is such a genius, how come she didn´t win even with the cheating in the primaries and undoubtedly in the general election. Sounds like just the opposite of genius to me.

No pumpkin you would have been seen as the beneficiary of the grandest propaganda machine ever to engage in swaying an election.

All it would have taken for you to win was for you to have been on the dull side of average. As it was you failed to raise to the lowest bar set for a candidate in presidential election history.

I really seriously think the Hilldebeast, Nutty Nancy Pelosi, Crazy Auntie Maxine Waters, and Johnboy McPain, all are suffering from the same viral or bacterial brain infection.

The combined level of crazy things coming from their mouths, combined with the really bizarre actions they keep doing, just scream that something is seriously wrong with them.

No joke. They need to be checked. And I mean now!!! If this is contagious, they need to be quarantined to protect their families and coworkers...

I just love these kinds of fantasy "If" comments.

Like did you guys know that IF I had been born wealthy, I would have started a restaurant called "In The Dessert"- Get it? hahaha! If I had owned the Santa Fe Rail road, I would have built ´live-on" trains. that´s right. Like motor homes but on rails! And they would have been moved all over the country about every four months! They would have had all sorts of lovely things like restaurants, play grounds, movie theaters and even libraries and schools. Summer they go north and winter they go south! Yeah. see what everyone missed because I was not allowed my own personal little "IF" fantasy!

And if Hillary had been Donald Trump, she would have won the 2016 election for President! Awesome!~ See how that fantasy crap works?

A candidate who gave canned speeches once a month, held town halls with pre-presented questions, skipped visiting states that she "had in the bag", collapsed in public and had to be tossed into the Scooby van like a sack of potatoes, canceled a fireworks display days before the election is not a genius, even if she had won. We would still be digging up the fraudulent votes.

She´s such a genius that she spent the whole campaign pandering to minorities, while hanging out with hollywood stars, fashion designers, and wall street financiers. All the while badmouthing ordinary, working Americans.

She reminds me of a winner in the Special Olympics, who, Bless Their Hearts, believe that they really accomplished something. All liberals seem that way to me. Something´s missing. They think it´s moral to murder babies. They think overrunning the country with foreign criminals is being compassionate. They believe the end justifies the means... no matter what evil has to be done on that Road of Good Intentions.

Yesterday, I saw Senator Coons, Democrat from Delaware say he couldn’t vote for the Graham Cassidy healthcare replacement bill because it didn’t have a clear definition of adequate and affordable for those with preexisting conditions. What a joke! The Affordable Care act (ACA) was an over 2,000 page bill (that most hadn’t read when they voted on it) with massive numbers of mandates and twenty new taxes and I don’t recall Democrats asking for definitions let alone on subjective terms like adequate and affordable.

Many members of the national media hate President Trump so much that they´ll even defend North Korea if it keeps them consistent in their opposition to everything he does. After Trump said at the United Nations General Assembly this week that the U.S. would crush the little Asian country should Kim Jong Un attack the U.S. or our allies, reporters and commentators reacted as if he had just threatened Switzerland on a whimsy. Trump had simply said that the U.S. "has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no

North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un is growing in popularity on America’s political left-wing as the despot engages in a war of words with President Trump. Progressives have shown an increasing willingness to embrace the brutal dictator as a means of attacking Trump, and some in the media have given the brutal dictator friendly, celebrity-like coverage. Left-wing activists, meanwhile, are eagerly spreading pro-North Korea propaganda and making excuses for the dictator’s murderous activities. Un’s public attacks on Trump on Tuesday prompted praise for the dictator by some in the media. Washington Post columnist Petula Dvorak fawned over Un in a column

The Obama Presidential Center planned for Jackson Park could be a shot in the arm for the South Side, bringing jobs, economic development and other benefits.

Still, those groups are pressing on, saying they plan to go to the city to get the legal enforcement a written document would provide.

“Americans continue to cite dissatisfaction with government above all others as the United States’ top problem,” reports Gallup polling analyst Megan Brenan, citing a new survey from the pollster that places the faulty government in first place. In second place: concern over racial tensions in the nation, followed by immigration and the lack of unity in America. Some worries had equal weight. The state of health care, the economy and North Korean threats were tied for fifth place, followed by unemployment, the moral decline of the nation and natural disaster relief — all tied for sixth place.

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) announced on Friday that he will vote against the latest GOP effort to repeal ObamaCare, potentially dooming the legislation. “I cannot in good conscience vote for the Graham-Cassidy proposal. I believe we could do better working together, Republicans and Democrats, and have not yet really tried," he said in a statement, referring to the legislation spearheaded by GOP Sens. Lindsey Graham (S.C) and Bill Cassidy (La.). McCain´s announcement leaves GOP leadership with no room for error.

The Senate’s top Democrat offered praise for Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) after he said he would oppose the latest ObamaCare repeal bill, which narrows the chance that Republicans can get the legislation to President Trump’s desk. “John McCain shows the same courage in Congress that he showed when he was a naval aviator,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said an hour after McCain’s statement. “I have assured Senator McCain that as soon as repeal is off the table, we Democrats are intent on resuming the bipartisan process.” McCain is the second Republican, after Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.), to announce

If NFL fans continue to turn away from football, the TV networks could lose as much as $200 million in earnings, according to a new report. After ratings for Week Two crashed, adding to the angst already felt by a poor showing in Week 1, industry insiders and analysts are sounding the alarm. A new report claims that CBS, ESPN, Fox and NBC could take a $200 million hit to their estimated $2.5 billion in NFL advertising earnings if fans continue to turn off the TV, the The Hollywood Reporter noted recently. The worries over earnings are not allayed by

A new fifth grade teacher at Canopy Oaks Elementary is asking students to use gender-neutral pronouns in the classroom. Math and science teacher Chloe Bressack sent the request home in a letter to parents headlined "About Mx. Bressack." “... my pronouns are ´they, them, their´ instead of ´he, his, she, hers.´ I know it takes some practice for it to feel natural,” the letter reads, “but students catch on pretty quickly.” The letter also asks that students use “Mx.," (pronounced ´Mix´) when addressing the teacher rather than Mr. or Ms. The note alarmed some parents.

ABC has greenlit a new sitcom tentatively titled "Sanctuary Family" about an undocumented family living in the U.S. The network says the show will follow the pandemonium that unfolds when a married couple allows their undocumented nanny and her family to live with them. The guests put a strain on the marriage of the host family but they eventually learn that “the differences both families have aren’t as significant as their similarities,” according to the description provided by ABC. Undocumented immigrants are foreign-born people who don’t have a legal right to be or remain in the United States and the

Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel used his opening monologue Thursday to once again lambast supporters of the Graham-Cassidy health care bill -- and at one point called a Republican senator from Louisiana an "inbred." The host of ABC´s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” has emerged as a strong celebrity advocate for universal health care since his infant son had to undergo open-heart surgery in April. Kimmel made an announcement about his son during a memorable monologue at the time and has taken up the cause ever since. Part of his goal is for every child in the U.S. to have the same access to

Michelle Obama said in a speech Thursday that the White House is currently being led by fear, comparing President Trump´s administration with her husband and former President Obama´s administration. (Snip) “It isn’t just us first,” she said, referring to Trump´s "America first" policies. “We live in a big country and a big world," she said. "You can’t just want to help someone in a hurricane and not make sure they can go to the doctor when they’re sick.” Trump reiterated his "America first" doctrine in a speech to the United Nations General Assembly this week, emphasizing that America would put

The San Francisco 49ers Thursday night game against the Los Angeles Rams kicked off in front of a nearly empty stadium. Los Angeles Times reporter Lindsey Thiry tweeted a photo at the time of kickoff, which showed thousands of open seats. In fact, most sections in the photo have more empty seats than fans. (Tweet/Photo/Video) ESPN’s Darren Rovell reported that 63,500 tickets had been sold for the game, but of course, simply selling a ticket doesn’t mean the buyer will actually show up to the game. It’s hard to believe there are more than 30,000 people in the stadium, judging

Sen. John McCain almost certainly just killed TrumpCare — and gave a boost to managed-care stocks such as UnitedHealth (UNH) and Centene (CNC). The Arizona Republican declared that he couldn´t "in good conscience" vote for the Graham-Cassidy plan to repeal ObamaCare and replace it with block grants to states. John McCain?Verified account @SenJohnMcCain I cannot in good conscience vote for Graham-Cassidy. A bill impacting so many lives deserves a bipartisan approach. The news brought a sudden turnaround in managed-care stocks, though much of that was short-lived. Shares of Centene, whose fortunes are more tied to the ObamaCare exchanges and Medicaid

Democratic Rep. John Lewis said Thursday he sometimes feels like “taking a bullwhip” to people in order to make them care about civil rights. “It doesn’t matter whether they’re black, or white, Latino, Asian-American or Native American. When you see something that’s not right, not fair, not just, you have an obligation to do something, to say something. They’re just too darn quiet. I really wanna use some other words sometimes,” Lewis told the audience of the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Town Hall on Civil Rights in Washington, D.C. “I believe in the philosophy and the discipline of nonviolence, but sometimes

A team of four current and former NFL players is lobbying commissioner Roger Goodell to engage the league in fighting for the cause of social justice, even asking him to formally designate November as activism awareness month. Current players Michael Bennett (Seattle Seahawks), Torrey Smith (Philadelphia Eagles), and Malcolm Jenkins (Philadelphia Eagles), along with former player Anquan Boldin, sent Goodell and another executive a 2,800-word memorandum in August requesting the league invest significant resources in the cause. The memo, available in full here, is specific and thoughtful, but its requests would almost certainly prove divisive among fans, many of whom are
