If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em. Or mock ’em. Or something.
Hillary Clinton, who in case you weren’t aware lost the presidential election in 2016 to Donald Trump, has been creeping back into the daily news cycle.
One theory about her re-emergence is that she is planning to enter the 2020 race. Earlier this month, Trump responded to the rumor by urging Clinton to run to which she replied, “Obviously I can beat him again.”
Another is that she has just lost her marbles. This would explain her recent claims that Democratic presidential hopeful Tulsi Gabbard is a Russian agent and that “10-year-olds are hacking our voting systems and the networks that connect them.”
Perhaps as part her “look at me … again” campaign, Clinton attempted to make a funny yesterday by tweeting out a letter written on presidential stationery meant to mock Trump’s approach to foreign policy. The letter, which purports to be from the desk of Pres. John F. Kennedy (and is dated Oct. 16, 1962), follows:

All the “joke” managed to do was heap more ridicule on Clinton for being such a sore loser. Here are a gew of the many responses the tweet generated:

Another, perhaps far-fetched explanation for why Hillary did this is that fabricating a letter on presidential stationery gave her a rush. After all, when she had a chance to sit at a mock-up of the “Resolute desk” that graced the Oval Office during the presidency of Ronald Reagan and others, she seized it, as the photo at the top of the page reminds us.
