Delusional: Hillary Clinton Dares To Claim 2016 Election Was 'Stolen' from Her

Share

She’s the Norma Desmond of the Democratic Party.

Hillary Clinton, the former first lady, New York senator and atrociously corrupt secretary of state, is still on her road tour of U.S. cities with former President Bill Clinton, but she can’t stop living in the fantasy world that follows her everywhere.

But judging by her ticket prices, it’s a story that’s not selling like it used to.

It’s the one where she was an attractive candidate in 2016, did everything right, checked all the boxes and should have waltzed to victory and a new stay in the White House and the Oval Office that’s rightfully hers.

But in Hillary’s world, her just price was “stolen” from her, and now she’s telling other Democrats that they might be in for the same thing.

“I think it’s also critical to understand that, as I’ve been telling candidates who have come to see me, you can run the best campaign, you can even become the nominee, and you can have the election stolen from you,” Clinton told her audience Saturday at an “Evening with the Clintons” stop in Southern California, according to Fox News.

It was a fitting enough venue for Clinton to cling to her faded dream. The Forum in Inglewood, just outside Los Angeles, is about a 15-minute limo ride from Beverly Hills, where the embittered Desmond gnawed at the memories of her Hollywood glory days in the film noir classic “Sunset Boulevard.”

Desmond was dreaming of a return to the spotlight that would never, ever happen — which sounds a lot like a certain former Democratic presidential candidate.

Clinton isn’t entirely out of the public eye, of course, but Democrats might wish she were — as opposed to giving advice to the Democratic candidates who are trying to win the presidency from Donald Trump.

Is it long past time for Hillary to exit, stage left?

In the Hillary script, of course, Trump is the archvillain — the man who denied her what she was due.

Reality, however, has long since intruded on that story line.

When special counsel Robert Mueller concluded his investigation into “Russian collusion” at the end of March, it was clear to everyone across the political spectrum that Clinton had lost outright.

It would be interesting to see how many Democrats are actually interested in Clinton’s account of her historically embarrassing loss. This was the woman who spent twice as much as her opponent, remember, and who had the entire media-industrial complex on her side (but for Fox News and conservative websites).

But she still managed to lose — and hasn’t stopped making excuses for it ever since.

Clinton critics on social media weren’t buying it.

Not even liberals were buying it — literally.

Stumbling to the end of the 13-city “Evening with the Clintons” tour, the former first couple was drawing prices as low as $2 for the Los Angeles event, according to Hot Air.

It seems like only yesterday that Bill Clinton was commanding a half-million-dollar speaking fee in Moscow when his wife was in a position to put the American uranium market in Russian hands.

Now, Bill and Hillary are reduced to having the faithful cough up two bucks to spend “An Evening with the Clintons.” And for that they get to hear Hillary tell the story once again that she had the election stolen from her.

For Democrats, though, this aging legend in her own mind might be starting to get as embarrassing as Norma Desmond on her worst day.
