January 20th, 2017 was supposed to be Hillary Clinton’s biggest day.
And while she was on stage for the Inauguration of the 45th President, it wasn’t exactly in the role she – or anyone in the so-called “mainstream” media – had predicted.
During the presidential campaign, the media acted as if campaigning was but a mere formality and that Hillary’s victory as President was inevitable.
However, the voters had other ideas, and Donald Trump was elected as America’s next President.
And because Trump had questioned whether she should be in jail or not, exposed the Clintons as pay-for-play hucksters, and brought the women who had accused her husband of sexual misconduct to debates, many wondered if Hillary Clinton would actually attend the inauguration.
But, as the wife of a former President, she was invited – and had to sit through a humiliating experience where a man she attacked in the most personal of terms was administered the oath of office.
Clinton’s rhetoric throughout her campaign included calling Donald Trump dangerous and a threat to the country.
“Hillary Clinton said Monday that Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee, was the most dangerous presidential candidate in the history of the United States.
Clinton, in an interview with CBS News’ Charlie Rose, said Trump has “no self-discipline, no self-control, no sense of history, no understanding of the limits of the kind of power that any president should impose upon himself.”
After hitting Trump for advocating for a return to torture and killing the families of terrorists, Clinton said: “What he has laid out is the most dangerous, reckless approach to being president than I think we’ve ever seen.”
Rose, seemingly surprised by the comment, asked: “The most dangerous man ever to run for president of the United States?”
“I believe that,” Clinton said.
Clinton’s top campaign aides believe that the way to beat Trump in November is to not only stoke voters’ distrust of him, but to cast a vote for him as a vote for putting the United States in danger. The goal is to convince voters that Trump is unprepared and unfit for the job.”
But her campaign strategy failed in spectacular fashion, as voters judged Trump’s promises to put America First and bring back jobs as not dangerous at all and exactly the right course for America.
So Hillary Clinton was forced to sit there and watch someone she had lambasted as unfit for office, assume the Presidency.
Attending the inaugural may very well be Clinton’s final public political act.
Her future in electoral politics is over.
It ended when she was defeated by Donald Trump.
And having to sit through an inaugural address Hillary Clinton always assumed she’d be delivering was a humiliating end to her political career.
