In an interview with late night host Stephen Colbert, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who did NOTHING as North Korea developed their nuclear capabilities, tried to give President Trump some foreign policy advice.
Colbert, whose epically horrendous Emmy performance on Sunday sent ratings into the basement, stood arm in arm with the twice-failed presidential candidate as together they strained to recapture relevance, individually and for the Democrat collective. They just don’t get it.
Maybe if we use former president Obama’s words, it’ll sink in: Trump won! Get over yourselves. We the People don’t want to hear from you.
As The Daily Wire reported:
“Appearing on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Tuesday night, Hillary Clinton took the opportunity to rip President Trump for his remarks at the United Nations vis-à-vis North Korea, which she called ‘dark’ and ‘dangerous.'”
The twice-failed presidential candidate warned America last night that despite epic voter rejection to not one but two political newcomers, she’s “not going anywhere.” I guess the voice of the people doesn’t matter when you’re that big a narcissist.
In her latest gripe-fest, Clinton lectured President Trump on something that, thank God, she has absolutely no experience doing: giving a speech as POTUS.
“What I’d hoped the president would have said was something along the lines of, ‘We view this as dangerous to our allies, to the region, and even to our country. We call on all nations to work with us to try to end the threat posed by Kim Jong Un, and not call him ‘Rocket Man,’ the old Elton John song, but to say it clearly, ‘We will not tolerate any attacks on our friends or ourselves.’ But you should lead with diplomacy. You should lead with the commitment to try to avoid conflict however you can.”
This from the “diplomat” who left four Americans to die in Benghazi. And yet diplomacy is exactly what President Trump has been doing for months – working with our allies in the region, and the U.N., to level a measured, strategic response. Yet, while Lil Kim Jong Un continues to fire rockets at our allies and threaten them and America, Hillary would have Trump water down his rhetoric.
Instead, Trump strengthened his rhetoric on the world stage, demonstrating American resolve:
“The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea. Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime. The United States is ready, willing and able, but hopefully, this will not be necessary. That’s what the United Nations is all about; that’s what the United Nations is for. Let’s see how they do.”
Her short memory belies Clinton’s hypocrisy.
In July 1993, her then-president husband Bill used similar language to condemn North Korea for renouncing adherence to the Non-Proliferation Treaty:
“We would overwhelmingly retaliate if [the North Koreans] were to ever use, to develop and use nuclear weapons. It would mean the end of their country as they know it.”
Further hypocrisy happened on Hillary’s watch as Secretary of State. The then JV Team on national security, aka Barack Obama’s administration, pooh-poohed a Defense Intelligence Agency report that North Korea was capable of constructing nuclear weapons. Today, America and her allies in Southeast Asia, and the world, really, reap the results of that enfeebled policy position.
When Colbert asked what could be done if it’s proven that Trump colluded with Russia to win the 2016 election, Hillary suggested voicing disapproval at the ballot box.
That’s exactly what happened. First, on June 3, 2008. Then again on November 8, 2016. We the People voiced our collective displeasure and asked her to retire, TWICE. She’s still not listening to us.
Here is a video clip from her appearance on the show.
