Hillary Congratulates Macron, Trolls Media Haters
I love this tweet from Hilary:
Victory for Macron, for France, the EU, & the world.
Defeat to those interfering w/democracy. (But the media says I can't talk about that)
— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) May 7, 2017
Great look for her: both congratulating Macron and trolling her haters in the press.
Girl, you can talk about anything you want. If anyone has earned that right, it's you. https://t.co/kHSMkirlur

L. Joy Williams Puts Josh Barro Straight
L. Joy Williams vs. Josh Barro-on the Joy Reid show. Kind of a mouthful! But she nailed it in answer to Barro’s dismissial of Hilalry Clinton.
Barro again played the same media meme that Hillary should just stay in the woulds because ‘nobody likes you, and bringing you back divides the party and makes it unable to move forward.’
Williams had the perfect response: when he says she’s not even allowed in the conversation that’s telling all the many Hillary voters that their vote doesn’t count and that they’re not in the conversation.
The future of the Democratic party is not throwing Hillary in a deep, dark, cold grave with no tombstone as her haters on the Left, Right, and in the press want. Sorry, it’s our party.
We don’t really care about the ‘advice’ of people who don’t want the best for the party anyway. Barro is a great example of one of these non Democrats-who come from the Right-trying to lecture Democrats on what they have to do: turn on Hillary, put ‘identity politics’ behind us, get down with the ‘white, working class’, etc.

Just so the Hillary haters are clear-we’re #StillWithHer, and always will be. I can’t tell you how many Twitter hashtags I see that say exactly that. #StillWithHer, #AlwaysWithHer, #HillaryForever.
This is one of my favorite tweets I’ve seen-that most expresses my own feelings about it:
Night all. Bug your congress critter night & day. Tweet & call. We want a real investigation. We want justice for Hillary and for America. pic.twitter.com/YZMjZfZczB

It drives them crazy that we’re #StillWithHer-which for me, is another very compelling reason to be #StillWithHer.
“One of the more puzzling reactions to Hillary Clinton’s 2016 loss to Donald Trump is the chorus of left-leaning voices offering up an array of
reasons excuses for her loss, none of which address the real problems with her and with her historically-awful campaign.”
“Instead of addressing her unlikable personality, her myriad scandals involving poor judgment and varying degrees of corruption, and her long history of being reviled by American voters, the regressive left blames James Comey, Russia, misogyny, xenophobia, deplorables, and a thousand other things over which poor, victimized Hillary had no control.”
It’s puzzling only if you don’t see how false this framing is. Look at how this Hillary basher attempts to speak of her ‘unlikability’ as something that’s incontrovertible fact. In truth, there has been a concerted effort to tell people ‘she’s unlikable/’ Literally the Right has written books with that name.
But ‘unlikability’ is not a fact, but rather a very uncharitable opinion that is far from universal. But in point of fact her history of ‘being reviled’ is much shorter than this hater seems to realize. Hillary actually had a 64% favorable rating until the campaign. Then you had the concerted effort by the Breitbart Right working with the MSM-the Times actually collaborated with Breitbart on Clinton Cash-to assassinate her character. Just like had happened with Gore and Kerry.
Remember when Kevin McCarthy let the cat out of the bag ‘We had a Select Committee. Her numbers are dropping.’
As for poor judgement and corruption this doesn’t even pass the laugh test when you put Donald Trump in office. This is someone who uses an unsecure Android while discussing state secrets at his private business, Mar a Logo.
The Hillary hating Andrew Sullivan:
“I’ve done what I could in this space to avoid the subject of Hillary Clinton. I don’t want to be the perennial turd in the punchbowl. I’d hoped we’d finally seen the last of that name in public life — it’s been a long quarter of a century — and that we could all move on. Alas, no. Her daughter (angels and ministers of grace defend us) seems to be positioning herself for a political career. And Clinton herself duly emerged last week for a fawning, rapturous reception at the Women in the World conference in New York City. It simply amazes me the hold this family still has on the Democratic Party — and on liberals in general. The most popular question that came from interviewer Nick Kristof’s social-media outreach, for example, was: “Are you doing okay?” Here’s Michelle Goldberg: “I find myself wondering at odd times of the day and night: How is Hillary? Is she going to be all right?” Seriously, can you imagine anyone wondering the same after Walter Mondale or Michael Dukakis or John Kerry blew elections?”
I love this from Michelle Goldberg because I can totally relate.
Let’s really get under their skin and show them we’re #StillWithHer.
In that vein, there’s no better blog to show them than this one:
Finally there’s her new #Resistance PAC. Listen to the snark from the haters:
Oh God: Clinton To Launch New Super PAC To Help 2018 Candidates, Organizations Opposed To Trump.”
Hillary Clinton is out of the bunker and now part of the resistance. This was inevitable. Clinton lost the 2016 election, she just cannot move on from it, and now will continue to try and influence Democratic politics even though many just want her to go away. Regardless, now that she’s out of the woods, Clinton will be eliciting the help of her former chief development officer at the Clinton Foundation to find donors for her new super PAC that will start out helping organizations fighting the Trump agenda. Eventually it will put to work to assist candidates for the 2018 midterms. The PAC will be called Onward Together (via Politico).”
Eat your hears out, Hilary haters.
As for talk of her running in 2020, I doubt this is true-based on everything I’ve heard, including she herself says she doesn’t think she’ll ever run for anything again. But if she did, of course, I’d vote for her again. I’d vote for her 100 times-even if she lost every time.
But she is absolutely part of the #Resistance. Where did this fiction come from that the #Resistance is Bernie Bros and that’s all?
P.S. As we saw in my poll out last week, the long awaited poll results are in, and right now I’m just 11 points down vs. Peter King (GOP-NY-District 2). And the voters don’t even know who I am yet.
There is nothing more important in getting answers to Trump-Russia collusion than a Democratic House in 2019. Please donate to help me in my part of the effort to fight for a Dem House.
Thank you. We must have a Dem House. And so, we will.
