Sore Loser Hillary Clinton: President Trump a “Corrupt Human Tornado”
Defeated 2016 Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton called the man who beat her, President Donald Trump, a “corrupt human tornado” and a “clear and present danger” in an excerpt of an interview with CBS Sunday Morning promoted Thursday by CBS. Clinton’s comments echoed remarks she made to People a few days before in which she also called Trump a “corrupt human tornado” when she announced her support for his impeachment.
Former Obama Secretary of State Clinton spoke to Jane Pauley for an interview with daughter Chelsea about their new book, “The Book of Gutsy Women”.
…”My view is that, given the latest revelation, which is such a blatant effort to use his presidential position to advance his personal and political interests, there should be an impeachment inquiry opened,” Clinton said. “And I think, sadly, there are a number of grounds. But this one is incredibly troubling.
“The most outrageously false things were said about me. And unfortunately, enough people believed them. So, this is an effort to sow these falsehoods against [Vice President Joe] Biden. And I don’t care if you’re for the [Democrats] or you’re a Republican, when the president of the United States, who has taken an oath to protect and defend the Constitution, uses his position to in effect extort a foreign government for his political purposes. I think that is very much what the founders worried about in ‘high crimes and misdemeanors.'”
Will it be harder for a woman to be elected president now? Pauley asked Clinton.
“Well, I hope not, and I don’t think so – because the objective is to field whoever is the strongest candidate to defeat Donald Trump,” Clinton replied. “Because Donald Trump right now poses a direct threat, a clear and present danger to the institutions of our government, to the rule of law, to our standing in the world.”
…”You know, Jane, it was like applying for a job and getting 66 million letters of recommendation and losing to a corrupt human tornado,” Clinton added. “And so, I know that he knows that this wasn’t on the level. I don’t know that we’ll ever know what happened.”…
Some of Clinton’s comments to CBS were an almost verbatim repeat of comments she made in an interview with People published Tuesday.
“We are in a crisis,” Clinton said.
…She told PEOPLE she was now supporting Trump’s impeachment.
“I did not come to that decision easily or quickly,” she said, “but this is an emergency as I see it. … This latest behavior around Ukraine, trying to enlist the president of Ukraine in a plot to undermine former Vice President Biden or lose the military aid he needs to defend against Trump’s friend Vladimir Putin — if that’s not an impeachable offense, I don’t know what is.”
…Calling Trump a “a reckless, corrupt human tornado who cares only about himself,” Clinton told PEOPLE it is the constitutional duty of the House of Representatives to begin impeachment proceedings “not happily or with glee,” but in the interests of national security.
“The president of the United States is betraying our country on a daily basis,” she said, adding, “This man who is in the Oval Office right now is a clear and present danger to the future of the United States.”…
