How quickly the opinions of political elites change amid impeachment proceedings.
Ms. Hillary Clinton, who will clearly never get over her real loss to top GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump, has apparently shifted gears over Biden’s age, which she previously denigrated in one of her many interviews.
As detailed by Fox News, Clinton was quite forthright about concerns regarding Biden’s age during a discussion with Financial Times editor Edward Luce in May.
Biden had recently taken one of his many tumbles or near-tumbles, which formed the context for Luce’s question regarding the president’s advanced age.
“There was that heart-stopping moment when he almost fell over coming down the stairs a day or two ago. He didn’t use a railing, and Jill wasn’t there with him. Every time that happens, your heart is in your mouth because these things could be consequential. Is that a concern?” Luce inquired.
Clinton, all too eager to position herself as a potential candidate in the event that Biden doesn’t work out, was quick to detail the “concern” she feels over the president’s age.
“It’s a concern for anyone. We’ve had presidents who had fallen before who were a lot younger, and people didn’t go into heart palpitations … But his age is an issue, and people have every right to consider it,” Clinton declared.
It’s rather remarkable, really, to observe how quickly Clinton shifted her position once the impeachment inquiry was set in motion.
During a recent appearance on MSNBC, Clinton delivered a very different response to questions from “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski on the concerns voters should have regarding Biden’s age.
“The question is legitimate, but the conclusion that people draw is, I think, off-base,” Clinton hedged.
So, in other words, Clinton blames the voters, again, just as she lambasted Trump supporters as “deplorables.”
Clinton proceeded to double down on her support for Biden and Harris, despite the fact she would happily snatch 2024 from both of them if she were able to do so.
“Look, I am supporting President Biden and Vice President Harris because of what they’ve gotten accomplished. I’m kind of old-fashioned that way. I like to see people, you know, as I said, tackle big problems, bring people together, and try to forge solutions. And I don’t know about anybody else, but I’m kind of happy that we’re fixing our bridges and our roads and the rest of our infrastructure,” Clinton brayed.
Bring people together? Who is she kidding?
And as far as “fixing bridges” is concerned … how about fixing the border?!
Conveniently, Clinton made no comment about border security, and she clearly had nothing favorable to say about geopolitical security.
“So when people say to me, ‘Well, he’s old.’ Yeah, that’s right, but look at what he’s gotten done, and then if that’s not enough for you, look at the alternative,” Clinton added, as if the word “alternative” speaks for itself.
However, considering Biden’s mantra is “America Last” and Trump’s is “America First,” it’s not too difficult to see that “the alternative” Clinton refers to is vastly better than the incumbent.
