Dueling Headlines

A few weeks back in a moment of mischief I tweeted the following for discussion:

Dems are angry over Hillary Clinton’s latest comments

Democrats are angry that Hillary Clinton continues to discuss what went wrong during the 2016 presidential election against President Trump.

“She put herself in a position where [Democrats] from states that Trump won will have to distance themselves from her even more,” said one former senior Clinton aide. “That’s a lot of states.”

Another Clinton surrogate questioned the decisionmaking behind Clinton’s remarks. For months, some Democrats have been arguing that Clinton’s sentiments have been counterproductive to the party’s rebuilding efforts.

This of course is why I hope she sticks it out with her Bitterness 2020 World Tour (I want t-shirts!), and is nominated again in 2020.
