Hillary Clinton was a guest on CNN Wednesday where she had quite a bit to say about her likely presidential opposition, Donald Trump. When the conversation turned to Democrat concern that Clinton would be unable to match campaigns with the ruthless Trump, Clinton scoffed and even dared Trump to “come at her.”
“I’ve seen the presidency up close from two different perspectives and I think I know what it takes. And I don’t think we can take a risk on a loose cannon like Donald Trump running our country.
Donald Trump has said it’s okay for other countries to get nuclear weapons. I think that is downright dangerous.
He has said wages are too high, I think we need to have a raise for the American people. Raise the minimum wage, get wages back going up.
I think when he says women should be punished for having abortions, that is just beyond anything I can imagine, I think that most women can imagine…
He’s a lose canon… I do think he is a loose canon, and loose canons tend to misfire…”
When asked how she would handle the Trump campaign dredging up the worst evils of the Clinton family legacy, Clinton practically dared Trump to do his worst.
“If he wants to go back to the playbook of the 1990s, if he wants to follow in the footsteps of those who have tried to knock me down and take me out of the political arena, I’m more than happy to have him do that. This, to me, is a classic case of a blustering, bullying guy who has knocked out of the way all the Republicans because they were just dumbfounded.”
I’m not sure how things will turn out in November, or about which candidate will prove to be more merciless than the other. What I do know is that in Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton the nation has chosen the two most ruthless politicians in recent American memory. Whatever happens next will be memorable, bordering on… historic.
