When you think about everything Hillary Clinton told us about disgraced, failed, one-term former president Donald Trump when she ran against him in 2016, it’s fair to say that not only was she prescient, she was also 100% right.
Jennifer Senior of The New York Times noted in 2020 that Clinton had indeed summed Trump up perfectly:
But she did have some strikingly good insights. You see it in the “she warned us” memes on Twitter: Here’s the snippet of her listing possible reasons Trump hadn’t released his tax returns (he’s a tax evader, he’s in hock to mysterious creditors, he’s not the bazilionaire we think), all of which turned out to be true; there’s the snippet of Hillary telling Trump that he was a puppet.
And now Hillary is back, and she’s still perfectly on-point (and funny as hell), The Independent reports, when asked what message she has for Melania Trump:
“How’s your summer going?” she bluntly told host Andy Cohen she would ask the former first lady in the wake of the FBI’s raid of her and Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home and the seizure of top secret documents.
The former secretary of state appeared on Cohen’s Bravo show Watch What Happens Live with her daughter Chelsea Clinton to promote their Apple TV show Gutsy.
But it wasn’t just Melania that the former secretary of state had questions for, and she was kind enough to share those with us, too:
The former presidential candidate was also asked what question she would ask Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, whose wife Ginni Thomas has been linked to the attempt to overthrow Joe Biden’s 2020 election victory over Mr. Trump.
“Don’t you want to retire?” Ms. Clinton said she would ask Justice Thomas, who also played a key role in overturning Roe v Wade.
What about all of those eerily accurate predictions Clinton made about what a disaster Trump would be as president? Cohen asked.
