Hillary Clinton: 'One Man’s Ego' is Damaging Integrity of US 'Democracy'
Twice-failed presidential candidate unloads on Trump during rant
Twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton took to Twitter Friday to rage that "one man’s ego" is "damaging the legitimacy of our democracy."
Clinton’s comments triggered an avalanche of mockery, however.
By apparently declaring that President Donald Trump’s ego is a threat to the legitimacy of US democracy, she proved that her efforts to delegitimize the 2016 vote still haven’t been forgotten.
But as some have pointed out, her remarks could just as easily have been referring to Joe Biden or indeed herself.
Protecting one man's ego is not worth damaging the legitimacy of our democracy.— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) November 20, 2020
The comment was presumably a reference to Trump, who has challenged the results of the presidential election earlier this month, refusing to concede to Democratic nominee Joe Biden.
However, social media users did a double-take, pointing out that Clinton’s tweet was an uncannily accurate description of her own behavior following her 2016 loss to Trump, according to RT.

“It’s cool to take over 3 years of lies to protect one woman’s ego, amirite?” snarked one user.
Meanwhile, others reminded Clinton in detail how she had been one of the primary forces behind the Russiagate conspiracy theory that attempted to delegitimize Trump’s victory four years ago as the product of his “collusion” with the Kremlin.
The claims have been debunked through an enormous amount of time and taxpayers’ money spent on multiple investigations of the allegations.
But “Russia Russia” is acceptable?— AstrO (@Mi_Astronauta) November 20, 2020
Easy to see how we got here.
Both HRC and DT the problem here

Some took Clinton’s failure to actually name Trump and ran with it, “agreeing” that democracy should be preserved even if it hurts Biden’s ego.
That's exactly why the investigations into this election is a good thing. Biden's ego isn't worth protecting— Kristi (@cutecanukgirl) November 20, 2020
Yeah, Biden has a big ego. Er, well his handlers do.— MenOnStrike🚫 (@MenOnStrike) November 20, 2020
Last month, Hillary said the thought of President Donald Trump securing a re-election victory "makes me sick to my stomach."
The former secretary of state spoke about the possibility of President Trump winning another four years in the White House during a podcast released Monday.
"It makes me literally sick to my stomach to think that we'd have four more years of this abuse and destruction of our institutions," Clinton blasted.
"And damaging of our norms and our values.
"And lessening of our leadership. And the list goes on," Hillary told journalist Kara Swisher while a guest on her podcast.
The 2016 election loser said she "can't entertain the idea of [Trump] winning" again in 2020.
