As the nation grows ever more divided, with President Trump emboldening hate groups by not expressly condemning them after the deadly protest in Charlottesville, a voice of reason has emerged.
Unfortunately for us, however, that voice is from a year ago, when Hillary Clinton attempted to warn voters of the dangers of electing Donald Trump. The problem with Hillary is that she was fundamentally unlikable going into the election and played the "high road" against Donald Trump. Unfortunately, when your opponent is mud-slinging at every toss and turn, you're going to look like "every other politician" standing next to him. Maybe if Hillary had owned up to the fact that she can be downright vicious and played Trump for the moron that he is, she would've been able to eek out a victory. But now, he we are.
In a video that has reemerged and gone viral, Clinton explains exactly the circumstances we find ourselves in at the moment:
Many on Twitter felt the stinging clarity of Clinton's words:
And while some said she was partially to blame:
They still gave her props for telling it like it is:
Looking back at her loss to Trump, one can only wonder what could've been if she was more forceful and blunt. Even though Trump and his consituents are quick to play the victim despite being full of hot air and vitriol, it might've been a way better strategy to proverbially "slap" Trump in the face with his own hateful rhetoric. If she owned up to the fact that yes, you are deplorable if you honestly think that Trump's policies and words are true, then there's something wrong with you that you need evaluate. Oh well.
