Hillary Clinton appeared on CBS’ Face the Nation on Friday to talk about the state of the presidential race and her plans for taking on presumptive GOP candidate, Donald Trump. Clinton promised that there would be no mud-slinging from her in the race because she was going to be running on ideas (a likely story), she also seemed to be actively trolling both Donald Trump and the GOP when she argued that many Republicans were considering supporting her as opposed to Mr. Trump.
“I don’t feel like I’m running against Donald Trump. I feel like I’m running for my vision of what our country can be.
For a lot of people, again, who take their vote seriously and who really see this as a crossroads kind of election, I am asking people to come join this campaign. And I’ve had a lot of outreach on Republicans in the last days who say that they are interested in talking about that.
The Republicans themselves are raising questions about their presumptive nominee. And I think that is in large measure because they do understand how hard the job of being president is… High-ranking Republican officials in Congress raising questions about their nominee, I don’t think it is personal, so much as rooted in their respect for the office.”
Expect to see a lot more foolish conversation like this as the race really starts to heat up in the summer. Also, this should go without saying considering the two candidates are Donald Trump (a reality TV star) and Hillary Clinton (one of the most notoriously dirty politicians of the era), but just in case it needs to be said…
The 2016 presidential campaign will be among the ugliest, most carnival-like affairs our nation has EVER seen. Hillary Clinton is a likely felon who has always been one of the most negative people in Washington, D.C. Donald Trump is the consummate showman, who if nothing else, knows how to put on a good spectacle.
Grab your popcorn and settle in; this summer’s entertainment will be the political circus we call the 2016 presidential election.
