Once again to blaming the Russians for her loss in 2016, Hillary Clinton is weighing in on the 2020 campaign conversation by appearing on Kara Swisher's New York Times Podcast, Sway. Clinton claiming that she was "the candidate that they basically stole an election from."
After being asked about the future if Trump were reelected, Clinton responded that she could not even entertain the idea of him winning and that "it would cause cognitive dissonance of a grave degree."
She then explained:
Well, because it makes me literally sick to my stomach to think that we'd have four more years of this abuse and destruction of our institutions, and damaging of our norms and our values, and lessening of our leadership, and the list goes on.
Clinton continued by asserting that Trump, if reelected, would "attack and punish anyone who was, in his view, an adversary. And he would be aided and abetted, sadly, by both elected and appointed officials."
Was she referring to Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett? She didn't specify.
She did claim she does not "have an opinion on" court packing but that it is "a decision that Biden is going to have to address."
Near the end of the interview, when asked if a female president would handle the COVID pandemic better.
I have no doubt, especially if it were me. No, I mean, I was born for that. I mean, that's why I knew I'd be a good president... I would have done what you see these women leaders doing. You listen to the science. You bring in people in a open, inclusive way... Yeah, I have no doubt in my mind at all that I would have stepped up to the crisis.
