Hillary’s ‘Comeback’ Speech Is a Festival of Deflection, Durham, and Delusion – Opinion

One thing you can say about Hillary Clinton is that she sure has some gall.

Her campaign paid — through cut-outs of her lawyers and Fusion GPS — for what became known as the Steele dossier to smear Donald Trump. The debunked Alfa Bank story was then used to attack Donald Trump. We’ve seen now in the Durham probe how it is alleged that her campaign, through operatives, engaged someone to look into the DNS lookups of servers including Trump Tower and the Executive Office of the President to dig up dirt on him to push that Russia connection claim.

Despite that, on Thursday, she showed up at the New York State Democratic Convention to give what some called her “comeback” speech” and she used it as a platform to do what she has always done, all her life — deflect from charges against her by trying to blame others, including Trump and other Republicans. She had previously tried that earlier with a tweet, calling the accusations a “fake scandal.”

But even before she got in the door to the Convention, she was assailed by protesters who let her know what they thought of her, including shouting out “lock her up.”

The speech she delivered took such audacity — particularly given her actions — it was a wonder her tongue didn’t go up in flames or snap off its roller as she delivered it.

Clinton said we were a “nation deeply and dangerously divided.”

“It is one thing to have political disagreements. They are normal and healthy. It is a different matter to lose your shared sense of reality, truths, and facts. Many of us had hoped that Trump’s defeat would help to heal our divisions. Yes, I did. Maybe, just maybe, the madness would break.”

Maybe she should check the mirror for what her actions have done to contribute to that division, particularly over the last several years with the Russia collusion lie, but also demonizing Americans as “deplorable.” She still hasn’t accepted the reality that she lost fair and square, despite all that she did to twist the process.

She then claimed the Republican Party was trying to normalize “storming the Capitol, assaulting police officers, and trying to overturn an election” leading us into “uncharted territory.” Again, madam, mirror, check it. Republicans are not “normalizing” violence. You allegedly did nothing comparable in history. No one should ever sit at any power seat again for such an act.

“We must reject the big lie about the 2020 election and the cover-up of the insurrection of Jan. 6.” Clinton declared.

“And we can’t get distracted, whether it’s by the latest culture war nonsense or some new right-wing lie on Fox or Facebook. By the way, they’ve been coming after me again lately, in case you might have noticed. It’s funny, the more trouble Trump gets into, the wilder the charges and conspiracy theories about me seem to get. His accountants are now firing him. Investigations get closer to Trump and, right on time, the noise machine is turned up. Fox leads the charge with accusations against me, counting on their audience to fall for it again.”

Notice who and what she doesn’t mention? This is the Durham probe. The real indictments and filings where the Clinton campaign plotting was laid out are alleged. Nothing to do with Fox or President Donald Trump — that’s his name by the way, even if Clinton can’t even bring herself to accord him the title that he earned despite her efforts. But it does sound a bit like she’s having a throwback to her “vast right-wing conspiracy” excuse from so many years ago. Wasn’t she just talking about division? Fox viewers are being rebuked by her. So much for that — she couldn’t even make it through the speech without being the divisive person that she’s been for decades.

Clinton once more shows that Democrats don’t have anything to lose but lying and attacking Donald Trump.

Then, she ended her remarks with a handshake to Gov. Kathy Hochul was the person she had supported. Hochul does not allow masks to be worn, although she will permit masks to be used in schools.

It sounds like she’s positioning herself in the eventuality that Biden can’t continue. This was supposed to be that speech that was going to make people talk about her again, to say, “Hey, look, let’s turn to her again.” But it just showed how delusional she still is and how, even now, she still can’t accept that President Donald Trump beat her. It showed that even in a speech that was supposed to be inspiring, she’s still the same old unlikeable person that she always was.
