It has been nearly three years since President Donald Trump won the 2016 election, and failed Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton still appears to be wholly incapable of accepting that basic fact of reality.
Aside from a multitude of excuses to explain away her loss, Clinton has also repeatedly called Trump an “illegitimate” president and has even accused him of being mentally unstable — a rather ironic twist, given it is Clinton who has shown herself to out-of-touch with reality.
“Let’s talk about his mental state”
Clinton’s clear case of Trump Derangement Syndrome was on full display during a recent appearance on ABC’s The View. The former secretary of State appeared alongside her daughter, Chelsea, to promote their new book on “Gutsy Women,” according to The Daily Beast.
“Let’s talk about his mental state, OK?” co-host Joy Behar said to Clinton of Trump. “Because this guy is still obsessed with your emails, he talks about it constantly.”
Behar went on: “He’s obsessed with you! Also, they’re chanting ‘lock her up.’ I mean, he has every criminal working for him and they’re worried about locking you up. What do you make of that?”
In what strikingly resembled a prepared response, Clinton detailed at length three main things that she believes show that Trump is mentally unstable. “First, I do think that he knows that he’s an illegitimate president,” Clinton said. “And because of that, he’s very insecure about it.”
Clinton continued: “Look what he’s trying to do now. Part of the Ukraine scandal that is slowly coming to light is he’s trying to figure out how to say, ‘No, no, it wasn’t the Russians,’ even though our intelligence community and everyone who has looked at this said, ‘Yeah, it was the Russians.’ He’s trying to say no, somehow it was Obama, Hillary, whoever. So he’s obsessed with the fact that he was helped a lot in unprecedented ways.”
“A whole constellation of problems”
But that’s not all, Clinton says. “The second thing is, he accuses other people of doing what he does,” the completely un-self-aware Clinton said. “It was so odd, I mean, he accused people of all these things, and that’s like a central part of his personality.”
Thirdly, Clinton noted of Trump, “I just think that he is someone who has to dominate and be, you know, the only voice in the room and the biggest guy on the block, the master of the universe, and he can’t stand any kind of questioning or any kind of dialogue.”
But her complaints didn’t end there. “We have a president who gets rid of people who disagree with him, who tries to silence people, who is sending our attorney general, apparently willingly, on this around the world trip to make up stuff, to try to prove that his election wasn’t influenced by the Russians,” Clinton said. “So I just think that it’s a whole constellation of problems, Joy.”
Unfortunately for Clinton, it isn’t Trump who comes across as insecure and obsessed. It’s Clinton who has projected her alleged crimes and “collusion” onto Trump, and it’s Clinton who sought to “dominate” and be the “master” of her own party and the nation in 2016.
Hopefully, she will soon get some assistance dealing with her severe case of Trump Derangement Syndrome so that she — and the rest of the country — can move on with their lives.
