If you’re like me, you may still be saying your prayers of thanks that you’re not under the fist of Clinton 2.0 after our near miss last November. The crooked former first lady, terrible secretary of state and absurdly persistent author was almost our first female commander in chief, and that was enough to scare America into showing up at the polls. Her crooked policies, perverted allies, and questionable funds procurements were enough to make anyone with two brain cells to rub together run in the other direction.
There was also the fear that we’d have the floundering Clinton original gracing the White House again. Just think, if he had time to get around while he was supposed to be running the free world, just think how much damage he could do when his chief responsibilities are just arranging dinners and digging in the rose garden.

“The man who had a boy named Elian Gonzalez ripped from his family in Miami at gunpoint and returned him to Cuba now thinks that President Donald Trump shouldn’t deport drug criminals back to their countries.
In a commencement speech at Hobart and William Smith Colleges this weekend, the former president slammed Trump for the deportation of William Perez Jr., an Army veteran who was sent back to Mexico after being convicted of a drug offense.
According to the Chicago Tribune, Perez had handed an undercover police officer a laptop case full of cocaine and ended up serving half of a 15-year prison term. When he got out, his criminal conviction meant he was slated to be deported.
‘It kind of embarrasses me that we let a person risk his life for us and then kicked him out,” Clinton said during his speech, according to Breitbart.
‘A guy that does two combat tours in Afghanistan, risks his life for the rest of us,’ he continued. “Whether you approve of what we’re doing there or not, he did things that most Americans don’t do. And he got taken off the street and sent home the other day.’
It’s worth pointing something here. First, Perez was released in 2015; Donald Trump wasn’t president then. In fact, the president at that point was a man from the city where Perez was arrested — Chicago. The deportation statutes were entirely the same then, and non-naturalized citizens were still sent back after being convicted of a crime.
Surely if the Democrats wanted to take an interest in the case, that would have been the time to do it, via clemency or a pardon. After all, Barack Obama was pretty keen on clemency.
Here’s the full speech, for those of you with strong stomachs:
Bill Clinton, Barack Obama and the Democrats don’t care a whit about keeping Perez in the United States. What they do care about is tying a sob story about a convicted drug dealer whose crimes have been glossed over to Trump’s immigration policies — after they’ve washed their own hands of all responsibility, of course.
The former president failed to see the relevance during the speech, in which there were plenty of meaningless platitudes delivered in soaring language, all with the aim of painting Republicans as a modern-day group of Blue Meanies.
‘Every single day we should each find a way to expand the definition of ‘us’ and shrink the definition of ‘them,’’ Clinton said. ‘Because, in the end, there’s not enough difference to spend our life fretting about it.’
How did Bill Clinton ‘expand the definition of ‘us?”
Oh, yeah, that way. He took a child whose mother had died on the brave trip over from communist Cuba and ripped the boy out of his family’s arms at gunpoint back in 2000.
Nice work. But please, tell these students how they need to ‘expand their definition of ‘us,” Mr. Clinton. They’ll probably see through the hypocrisy, but at least they’ll be able to say they received their degrees after sitting through a speech by the world’s most famous serial liar.”
Double standard much? There’s a sort of shameless disregard for keeping any kind of consistency in the Democratic party these days, and this shamed former POTUS has got no business throwing shade at President Trump. If there’s anybody that should be ashamed of his time in office it’s Bill Clinton, the man who’s only legacy has to do with lies and a blue dress.
Here’s hoping that everyone takes this speech for what it was; the bluster of a disgraced former President who narrowly missed out on being the first lady.
