 (full disclosure: there seem to be many more articles about Trump being hung in effigy)


Pedant alert!

Like "hanged by the neck until . . .", the same past tense of hang is more appropriate when it is in reference to "in effigy" for the same reason if it was the actual person being hanged.  Besides, considering Mr. Trump's small hands it is possible that he has never been "hung".

... and Hillary is as likely as anyone else to believe that if Trump is the Republican candidate..., the presidency is there for whoever wins the Democratic primary.

How well did that work out for her last time?

Reality check: the door hasn't yet closed on her making another attempt in 2020.  There are people who want her to run again.  There are some who want her daughter to eventually run, and those people will want to stay in whatever ledger she keeps track of "good" people.  If there is a movement to "draft" her, do you think she might welcome a rematch against Trump?   Because absent a Republican primary challenge - which might very well happen - the Democrat in 2020 is going to run against Trump, and Hillary is as likely as anyone else to believe that if Trump is the Republican candidate in 2020, the presidency is there for whoever wins the Democratic primary.

We have a discussion for that,

>This thread is U.S. Politics 2018. Hillary is not a significant factor whatsoever in that subject except in the fevered imaginations of the average right-wing media consumer. Start another thread about all the crazy stuff Hillary is supposedly up to if you want, but otherwise can we please move on?

OK. Point taken, I am sure. If he did work at 7-11, and they have forums like this, I am sure someone is there digging. Nature of the beast.

Let's keep this on track. She's doing her job.

Oh! Wait! It's already been done.

"Her"? "Her" who? Hillary? This is really getting ridiculous, and frankly a little sad. You should come to grips with the fact that that "validity" is a fabrication entirely within the insular echo chamber of right-wing media. When Hillary lost to Trump her name became mud to virtually all left-leaning progressives, most independents and many Democrats - that is if it wasn't already. She's effectively a nobody when she isn't a toxic political liability. The fact that Trump and the GOP keeps trotting her out as some kind of pinata distraction projecting her as some kind of key "Deep State" actor - when they themselves are acting exactly like the Deep State they allegedly fear - is quite telling about their capacity and desire to actually govern.

This thread is U.S. Politics 2018. Hillary is not a significant factor whatsoever in that subject except in the fevered imaginations of the average right-wing media consumer. Start another thread about all the crazy stuff Hillary is supposedly up to if you want, but otherwise can we please move on?
