Former first lady and two-time failed Democratic presidential contender Hillary Clinton doesn’t have much to do these days so she spends most of her time playing the role of left-wing gaslighter.
In a video released last week addressed to “Indivisibles,” Clinton made the unsubstantiated claim that “right-wing extremists” were going to steal the 2022 midterm elections amid historic inflation, a chaotic southwestern border, sky-high interest rates, and a big green energy push that isn’t popular — all of which are being blamed on the Democrats who control all levers of power currently.
“Right-wing extremists already have a plan to literally steal the next presidential election,” Clinton said, urging her followers to help “crush the coup” she believes could happen in two years. “And they’re not making a secret of it.”
Translation: ‘I’m working with other Democrats to completely dissolve all trust in our elections so that my party can craft an alternative system that will always favor us.’
The Daily Wire adds:
Clinton famously accused former President George W. Bush of being “selected” and not elected over her husband Bill’s former Vice President Al Gore in 2000. And when she lost in 2016, after falsely accusing former President Trump of colluding with Russians, she waited a full day to deliver a concession speech. And she continued to hint darkly that the election was unfair.

“There was a widespread understanding that this election [in 2016] was not on the level,” Clinton told The Atlantic in October, 2020. “We still don’t know what really happened.”
“There’s just a lot that I think will be revealed. History will discover,” she said. “But you don’t win [the popular vote] by 3 million votes and have all this other shenanigans and stuff going on and not come away with an idea like, ‘Whoa, something’s not right here.’ That was a deep sense of unease.”
Civics 101 reminder: Under our Constitution, presidents are selected by the Electoral College, not the simple majority as is the case with House and Senate races. Clinton failed to win enough state electoral votes; therefore, she lost to Donald Trump. Fair and square.
Clinton, 75, has been rumored to be considering yet another presidential bid if Joe Biden doesn’t run for reelection, as most legitimate political observers believe will be the case. And while she did not make any announcement in the video, she nevertheless attempted to cast doubts about the legitimacy of a GOP win in 2024.
“The Right-wing-controlled Supreme Court may be poised to rule on giving state legislatures, yes, you heard me that correctly, state legislatures the power to overturn presidential elections,” Clinton said. “Just think if that happens? The 2024 presidential election could be decided not by the popular vote or even by the anachronistic electoral college, but by state legislatures, many of them Republican-controlled.”
Even as they ridicule Trump supporters who believe that the 2020 election was not on the up and up, most Democrats, including Clinton, have falsely claimed for years that the 2016 election was stolen and that George W. Bush’s victory in 2000 was illegitimate as well.
