Any time I see reports of a Clinton mulling a run at political office, I shudder in fear. Well friends, buckle down, because I’ve got some bad news for you.
A pair of Clintons are considering a run at political office.
Former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton attended a meeting of political bigwigs and “made it clear she was honestly (re)considering” a run for mayor of New York City. She also told the Society of Irish Women at their annual St Patrick’s Day dinner in Scranton last Friday that she is “ready to come out of the woods and to shine a light on what’s already happening around kitchen tables at dinners like this to help draw strength to enable everyone to keep going.”
Meanwhile, daughter Chelsea, who couldn’t even operate a pancake maker successfully, is looking to be the next occupant of the seat in the Senate currently warmed by Kirsten Gillibrand should the Democratic congresswoman from New York run for president in 2020.
TMZ reported on Hillary’s aspirations:
Hillary Clinton was at a small gathering recently with some politically connected people in NYC, and it seems she’s noodling the idea of running for mayor.
A source who was at the gathering last month says Hillary brought up the topic of running and made it clear she was honestly considering it.
We’re told she was talking to people in her close circle to gauge the level of interest and support in a Clinton candidacy.
The Hill reports that Chelsea Clinton’s presence on Twitter – attacking President Trump and other Republicans – is driving speculation that she could run in 2020. If you’ve seen Chelsea on Twitter, you know she’s about as charismatic and charming as a librarian who stayed at her job well past retirement.
Clinton has only stoked the rumors further, particularly on Twitter, where she has repeatedly gone after President Trump and his associates since Inauguration Day. On Sunday, she also took the opportunity to rail against Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) for racially charged comments about immigrant babies.
Notice the pair have to plant roots in a liberal cesspool of corruption such as New York – where arrests and charges are so commonplace that there is a Museum of Corruption in the works – in order to attain any level of political success.
Even that might not be enough to finally carry a Clinton not named “Bill” to victory. A recent poll showed that over 58% of New Yorkers don’t want Hillary running for mayor of their city.
