Nobody understands the Republican Party quite like Hillary Clinton. The former First Lady, Senator, and Secretary of State has been a frequent target of the GOP ever since she emerged on the national political scene in tandem with her husband, Bill Clinton. And she certainly got under Donald Trump’s thin skin like no one ever has before, or probably ever will. Her performances at all three Presidential Debates in 2016 should be considered mandatory viewing for everyone, as they were masterclasses in knowing your enemy. They’ll also serve as a reminder to future generations that she was right about everything, which will confuse them even more as to why she didn’t get the Electoral College votes to match her Popular Votes (they’ll also be confused as to why there was even still an Electoral College in 2020, but that’s another topic for another commentary).
While not enough people listened to her then because her emails or whatever nonsense they bought into, she is now seen as a political Cassandra for basically predicting everything that’s happened in the last four years. So when Hillary Clinton is speaking truth to power about what the GOP is doing to keep Donald Trump’s election lies going, it’s important that people just set aside whatever their damage might be and just listen to the wisdom of this woman.
“The election was not close. There was no evidence of fraud. The states have certified the results,” Clinton said in a tweet on Thursday. “Yet Trump continues to try to overturn the election at the expense of our democracy.”
“The emperor has no clothes,” she added. “Republican electeds who continue to humor him have no spines.”

All fifty states were certified for Joe Biden on Wednesday, and his 306 Electoral College votes are expected to be cast by the Electors on Monday–one of whom is Clinton herself, in what has to be the most delicious political irony in history. Those votes will be counted on January 6th, because they have to drag out the agony even more. But everyone who lives on Real Earth knows it’s a lock for Biden.
Step up, Republicans. The sooner you all put out the public message that Biden is the next President, the sooner you can start washing the Trump taint off of you.
If you’re not subpoenaed along with him, that is.
