God help us - like a bad foot fungus, she’s not going away.

While appearing on “The Stephen Colbert Show” to plug her new book “What Happened” on September 19th, failed presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton declared, “I am not going anywhere.”

The statement was in response to host Stephen Colbert, who said, “A lot of people have said, ‘I wish Hillary Clinton would just go away.'”

"Well, you know, if they'd take up a collection and somewhere really nice, I might consider it," Clinton joked.

She then added "I am not going anywhere.” Unsurprisingly, Colbert’s audience cheered the statement.

Clinton ticked off her usual resentments about her losing bid for the presidency: sexism, misogyny, “voter supression,” former FBI director Jame Comey’s “unusual behavior,” the Russians, yada yada yadda.

Clinton then referred to herself as "Paula Revere," trying to bring the truth to people about Russia, and called election night “the dark time of the soul, midnight."

It was Clinton's first late-night appearance since her November defeat by Donald Trump. Clinton and Colbert also discussed if the federal investigation into Russia's involvement in the 2016 election could undermine the legitimacy of Trump's victory. 

"Nobody's talking about contesting the election," Clinton said. "Including me."

Clinton added explained that there was no constitutional mechanism to do such a thing.

Colbert heaped on the praise. "This is someone who believes in the Constitution, unlike the guy who got the job," he said.
