Hillary Clinton may be losing the election – and losing her mind. She recently taped a video message to the Laborers’ International Union of North America that can only be described as loud and bizarre.
Here are the details from Western Journalism:
“As polling shows Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has all but lost the lead she had over Republican rival Donald Trump both nationally and in several important swing states, prominent leaders in her party are growing nervous about her chances in November.
“The candidate herself addressed the issue during a video message to the Laborers’ International Union of North America.
“During her remarks, Clinton touted her labor platform in an attempt to rally support. Both the tone and content of her address, however, earned Clinton widespread ridicule online.
“‘I will fight back against so-called right to work,’ she said, referring to the right of workers not to be forced to support a labor union.
“She called such provisions ‘wrong for workers and wrong for America’ before elevating the volume of her voice for what has since become a roundly mocked rhetorical question.
“‘Having said all that,’ Clinton continued, ‘Why aren’t I 50 points ahead?’ you might ask.“
Donald Trump and others online had some excellent responses.
“Townhall’s Guy Benson also threw a few ideas out, chiefly that Clinton is a ‘conniving, unrelatable, unaccountable, terrible candidate who people don’t like and don’t trust.’
“[Trump said] his rival was not 50 points ahead of him because she is ‘terrible’ and ‘everything she touches is bad.’
We can’t argue with that. This latest video shows a candidate who isn’t confident of her chances in November, and wonders how she could ever end up in this political position. Hillary has to be more than a little nervous about a Trump presidency, and the possibility that her and Bill could really go to jail and pay for their numerous crimes.
Do you think that Hillary’s political goose is cooked? And do you think that she’s using an outdated playbook (giving ‘red meat’ to union members) this late in the election cycle?
