Ridiculous, yes, but here goes: Could Hillary Clinton end up as the Dems’ candidate?

Yes, her polling numbers are low, and the Clintons are so unpopular that they can’t fill a large room, much less an auditorium. But consider the current state of the Democratic field, whose only “centrist” candidate is Joe Biden, whose own star is beginning to fall, and the proposition of “Hillary 2020” sounds less, if not un-, absurd.

Former chief executive of the Trump campaign, Steve Bannon, presented the latest scenario suggesting a Hillary run while speaking with Fox Business Network’s Trish Regan. The Democrats are disillusioned with their current crop of candidates, Bannon argued, and are willing to drop the frontrunners and bring in Hillary to take down the president.

“They think they have a weak field and they’re – it’s like in chess – they’re prepared to sacrifice a rook to take down a king,” he explained. “They will throw Biden away to get to Trump and hope Elizabeth or, I even, think Hillary Clinton or Bloomberg or some centrist comes in here.”

There’s also the revenge factor. Democrats — including Clinton herself — are still bitter over 2016, which they believe Trump somehow stole. Anointing Clinton for a second run at the title against the current title holder has a certain internal logic.

Bannon explained that Hillary is almost definitely running, simply trying to find a way to wedge herself back into contention.

“She is running,” he states. “She’s just trying to decide how to fit her way in.” (RELATED: British Gambling Site Gets More Bets For Hillary Than Any Other Dem Candidate)

Bannon notes that Hillary has been very active since the impeachment inquiry was announced, emboldened by her fellow Democrats who are doing everything they can to hit the reset button on the 2016 election.

Clinton is currently on a book tour with her daughter Chelsea but has repeatedly chimed in on the current state of affairs at numerous public events.

She said President Trump “betrayed our country,” represents a “clear and present danger,” and is an “illegitimate” president.

“The Chinese Communist Party is not a clear and present danger,” Bannon sarcastically lamented of Hillary’s view. “Donald Trump is a clear and present danger.” (RELATED: Hillary Backs Impeachment: Trump ‘Betrayed Our Country’)

Recently asked whether she’s still bothered by Democrats not invoking her name on the campaign trail or the president’s comments about her, Hillary lashed out, saying that she essentially never deserved to lose in the first place.

“No, it doesn’t kill me because he knows he’s an illegitimate president,” she said, clearly distraught.

“I believe he [Trump] understands that the many varying tactics they used – from voter suppression and voter purging to hacking to the false stories — he knows that there were just a bunch of different reasons why the election turned out like it did,” Hillary added.

Clinton’s claims that she lost due to voter suppression are so dubious, even the corrupt Washington Post labeled it a complete and utter lie.

Hillary Clinton’s lies, brazen as they may be, are becoming more frequent again in light of this impeachment push.

Perhaps the Brits are onto something. A recent report showed bettors in England have been putting their money on Hillary Clinton, more so than any other candidate, to win the 2020 Democratic nomination for president.

Now Steve Bannon seems to agree.
