Hillary Clinton Tells a Joke - Slog

NEW YORK NY- APRIL 27 Former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton delivers the keynote address at the Regional Plan Association annual assembly in Midtown Manhattan

Clinton was clear when she told her audience on Saturday that she would "like to be president", even though she's tried twice and failed.

The moderator/interviewer, Kara Swisher, asked Clinton, "what do you think about Cory Booker.saying "kick them in the shins" essentially?" to which Clinton replied, "well that was Eric Holder", adding with a truly deadpan delivery: "I know they all look alike".

"I don't think it's politically correct to say we value that", she continued.

"This is the ultimate arrogance", Greg Gutfeld said.

Perino added that each time Clinton waffles on a presidential bid, it "prevents someone from being able to emerge".

Swisher tweeted Monday morning that Clinton seemed to mean she would have preferred to win the presidency in 2016, not that she planned to pursue it again.

"Your fantasies are out of control", he said.

"I know they all look alike", she joked, prompting a round of shocked laughter.

There was Eric Holder's call to kick Republicans, Maxine Waters' to harass Trump officials in public, Nancy Pelosi's, "I just don't know why there aren't uprisings" and Hillary Clinton's, "You can not be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for".

"I have no idea", Clinton said, "but I'm not going to even think about that until we get through this November 6 election ... but I'm going to do everything in my power to make sure we have a Democrat in the White House come January 2021".

During an interview with CNN earlier this month, Clinton said people "cannot be civil" with the Republican Party.

The discussion then turned to the likely candidates for the Democratic nomination in 2020, a race that will begin soon after the midterm elections. Conservatives from President Donald Trump himself to Florida gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis have been accused of racism for "dog whistles" and "code words" somehow only Democrats hear.

"I like her too, I'd be very happy with Hillary ..." "She didn't go to Wisconsin, she didn't go to MI enough; she didn't do what she had to do to win".

"It's respecting the diversity that we have in our society", she said.

Just before she made the racial crack, Clinton had just been stating that "what's often called political correctness is politeness" and 'not being rude and insulting to people'. Is it that she's run before?
