The Democrats just can’t seem to move on. Their first stage of grief – denial — seems to be lasting an eternity. On Tuesday, Hillary Clinton told one of her strongest supporters over at CNN, “If the election had been on October 27, I would be your president.”
These prescient words were spoken to none other than CNN’s Christiane Amanpour, who famously said right after the 2016 Presidential campaign, “I believe in being truthful, not neutral.” Perhaps the two can discuss the meaning of truth together over High Tea in the Big Apple today while watching their nemesis on the hot seat in Washington.
Denial always needs a victim and an evil perpetrator. And since HRC has cornered the market on victimhood, that would leave FBI Director James Comey as the principal perpetrator. Comey, ah yes, he’s the Bill Sikes from Dicken’s Oliver Twist come to life: murderer, dog-beater – an all-around rotter run amok. Evil would be too nice a word for him in the Democrat lexicon.
So here we are one-hundred days plus into a new presidency, almost six months past election day and we’re back to James Comey again. (I suppose this is because the Russians must take a back seat since the Tomahawk missile strike in Syria.) Or maybe not. Per The Hill, “FBI Director James Comey will be back in the spotlight on Wednesday when he testifies before the Senate Judiciary Committee.”
Spotlight? More like the crosshairs of a Democrat arsenal aimed directly at him. And this will be the first of two hearings for the FBI Director in front of the House Intelligence Committee. I guess HRC and Amanpour won’t get to watch it on their flat screens as all the testifying will take place behind closed doors. Nothing new here for life in the swamp.
Not one to sit back quietly and take it on the chin, POTUS 45 has weighed in on all this senseless jabber on his Twitter feed:
…Trump/Russia story was an excuse used by the Democrats as justification for losing the election. Perhaps Trump just ran a great campaign?

So, what’s all the fuss about this time? It appears the Inspector General is seeing whether Comey broke with FBI policy regarding public disclosures during a sanctioned bureau investigation. The Hill reports, “Democrats are still fuming over Comey’s actions, particularly since the FBI director only made public last month an investigation into possible links between President Trump’s campaign and Russian meddling in the election.”
Oops – we’re back to the Russians again! Ok, let’s give Mrs. Clinton her due. She did manage a brush with reality in the following statement: “I take absolute personal responsibility. I was the candidate, I was the person who was on the ballot. I am very aware of the challenges, the problems, the shortfalls that we had…” Unfortunately, she couldn’t just stop there; she had to continue with: [I was] “on the way to winning until a combination of Jim Comey’s letter on October 28, and Russian WikiLeaks raised doubts in the minds of people who were inclined to vote for me and got scared off.”
The Clinton’s have a unique way of justifying their actions: “I did not have sex with that woman.” “It depends on what the meaning of ‘is’ is?” And now it’s “I was on the way to winning until…” They somehow have developed a language, or perhaps universe of their own, separate and apart from reality. Perhaps at some point, they will realize that the rest of us still speak actual English and reside here on planet earth.
But the whole Clinton brood should rest easy, because (to paraphrase Richard Nixon) we won’t have Hillary to kick around anymore.
