Hillary Clinton, again, and this time, she has managed to piss off the Democratic National Committee (DNC), which spent 2015 and 2016 with its thumb on the scales for her by raising money for her new PAC on the same day as the DNC is doing a fundraising event. (Yes, I know, NY Post, but still………)
I really hope that this is just another attempt to raise money for the various parasites that constitute the Clinton inner circle, because the other alternative, that she is seriously considering running for President again in 2020, is simply too horrible to contemplate:
Just as Democratic donors thought they’d finally put away wallets for Hillary Clinton, she’s coming back to NYC for a fundraiser for her nonprofit — while also creating a party stink by throwing the bash at the exact same time as an event for DNC chairman Tom Perez.
Clinton will be in town on April 30 for her “Onward Together” organization, to support young political leaders.
With great fanfare, Clinton announced in an email to her 2016 supporters that she is launching the Onward Together Leadership Council and that they could become charter members — in return for coughing up at least $10,000.
Seriously, the level of delusion self absorption is stunning, and it is tremendously destructive to both the party and our political discourse.
She's going to run again unless she is brain dead by 2019. And the DNC will almost certainly hand her the nomination again.
By the way, notice the nice little callback to the DLC in the name of her new fundraising organization? The Onward Together Leadership Council? If Hillary could rise from the grave to strangle a populist progressive movement, she would.
