If you ever wondered whether Hillary Clinton’s repeated promises that she won’t run again are just bunk (seriously, who has wondered that?), she told BBC Radio 4 in an interview on Tuesday that she is not going to run for president a third time.
She maintained that she will continue to monitor and criticize Trump, saying she believes her voice will “be magnified because I am not running.”
Before you go off celebrating too much, try to imagine that nasal monotone magnified. I get shivers down my spine.
The funny twist to this latest declaration that Hillary is done with seeking the White House is that apparently President Trump has been baiting her to run again.
“Oh, I hope Hillary runs,” he said during a news conference in the White House Rose Garden Monday afternoon. “Is she going to run? I hope. Hillary, please run again.”
He had tweeted a similar sentiment earlier in the day. “I was recently asked if Crooked Hillary Clinton is going to run in 2020? My answer was, ‘I hope so!'” he wrote Monday morning.
Looks like Trump wants to kick around his favorite opponent one more time. Who could blame him? After all, he did well enough against such a terrible candidate last time that one more round seems like a piece of cake.
What about the rest of us? If you’re anything like me, you can breathe a sigh of relief that we don’t have to see her in public that often anymore. #ImWithHer retiring for good.
