Hillary Clinton is losing her mind!
In a recent CNN interview, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton expressed her concern about the divisions within the Republican Party, particularly between what she referred to as the “sane” faction and the “cult” devoted to former President Donald Trump. Clinton remarked on how political discourse has evolved, emphasizing the growing influence of extremists within the GOP who follow Trump’s lead.
According to Fox, Clinton discussed the current state of politics, recalling a time when strong partisanship existed in both parties but without the extreme influence seen today. She noted that many of these extremists within the MAGA movement take their cues from Trump, a figure she believed had lost credibility due to his self-serving actions and ongoing legal troubles.
She went on to suggest the need for some form of intervention, saying, “Because at some point, you know, maybe there needs to be a formal deprogramming of the cult members, but something needs to happen.” Clinton’s comment elicited a light-hearted reaction from CNN’s Christiane Amanpour.
Clinton predicted that Trump would likely be the Republican nominee in 2024 but expressed confidence in President Biden’s ability to defeat him. She analyzed Trump’s appeal to a segment of the population, characterizing it as an authoritarian populist movement rooted in emotional and psychological factors. She speculated that Trump’s followers may be drawn to his divisive politics for various reasons, such as opposition to migrants, LGBTQ+ individuals, people of color, or workplace grievances.
Clinton likened this phenomenon to a cult and believed that someone needed to disrupt this momentum. She hoped that Biden’s victory would mark a turning point, allowing Republicans to refocus on policy discussions and electing more responsible and accountable leaders.
Clinton’s remarks echoed her 2016 statement about Trump supporters being part of a “basket of deplorables.” At the time, she had characterized some of them as holding prejudiced views.
While Clinton has consistently advocated for the acceptance of Biden’s 2020 election victory and criticized those who deny it, she had previously referred to Trump as an “illegitimate president” and promoted the narrative that Russia and other factors had influenced the outcome of the 2016 election in her favor.
