Hillary Clinton needs to seek professional help over her obsession with President Donald Trump. Her loss to him is all consuming to her and driving her to feats of insanity strange even for her. Her latest trope is hitting the president on the coronavirus, no matter the facts.
On Monday, Clinton retweeted a Washington Post article that was damning of President Trump and said the administration was “beset by denial and dysfunction as the coronavirus raged.” Clinton tweeted: “It took 70 days for Trump to treat the coronavirus not as a distant threat or harmless flu strain well under control, but as a lethal force poised to kill tens of thousands of citizens…Replace this man in November.”
Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) hit her back, hard. “You may be confusing him with the Washington Post, telling America to get a grip. That COVID19 wasn’t scary, & that we should be wary of an aggressive govt response…Delete your account. This isn’t the time. This can’t be the new normal, where American tragedy is applauded for the sake of political opportunism.”
It could be the coronavirus. It could be the economy. It could be anything. Clinton’s rage and bile is so overwhelming she lashes out at any opportunity regardless of the merit of her case. True, many slobbering badly-educated Clinton supporters will heed her words. But many Democrat pros, probably including her own husband, rue the fact of her obvious personal issues.
And what this comes down to really is the personal. After putting up with so much from her husband, it was going to be her turn. All the humiliations and lies she endured from Bill would have been worth it. Now, she would have her time in history, her moment of glory.
Then this…this…orange TV star stole it all from her—her life, her dreams, the very reason she had been living since she left the White House. And now she will make him pay. It recalls Congreve in “The Mourning Bride”: “Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.” Scorned by her husband for other women. Scorned by the nation. Scorned by fate. It is not a perfect recipe for mental stability.
