Gillibrand: Hillary Was The ‘Most Qualified Person EVER to Run for President'
2020 hopeful praises failed presidential candidate iin interview
2020 White House candidate Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) said in an interview with GirlBoss Radio released Wednesday that twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was “the most qualified, capable person ever to run for president.”
Gillibrand, who worked on Clinton's 2016 campaign, said 2020 Democratic hopefuls are 'standing on Hillary's shoulders,' adding that Hillary had 65 million cracks in the highest and hardest glass ceiling.
The long shot presidential candidate seemed to accept that she amongst other contenders are in the shadow on Hillary, saying she was most 'qualified, capable person ever to run for president ever.'
According to the transcript:
NEHA GANDHI: You worked on Hillary Clinton’s senate campaign, right?
SEN. KIRSTEN GILLIBRAND:
She’s been a supporter of yours. What are the things that you’ve learned from here? Both good and bad.
What are the things that you emulate and the things that you maybe say that didn’t work for her from her campaign, particularly as your bid for the presidency?
I do think all of us who are running, particularly the women candidates, are standing on Hillary’s shoulders right now.
She did achieve 65 million cracks in the highest and hardest glass ceiling, and she actually won the popular vote.
She did a lot right. I mean, to win the popular vote by 3 million votes just shows she ran a strong campaign, and she certainly, in my opinion, was the most qualified, capable person ever to run for president ever.
I loved what she put out there in terms of herself and how much confidence she had and how much she believed in herself and always had a strong vision for America.
Gillibrand recently called for American taxpayer money to be used to fund social security checks for illegal immigrants living in the United States.
The Democrat made the calls during a campaign stop in Iowa Tuesday, where the Democrat argued that America needs to give amnesty to all illegal aliens living in the US in addition to allowing them into the social security system.
Last week, Gillibrand made comparisons between the pro-life stance and racism as she made her pro-abortion case during an interview with the Des Moines Register, according to The Washington Free Beacon.
The interviewer noted that her vow to use abortion as a litmus test for judge could be seen as an infringement on judicial independence.
Gillibrand promptly responded that, like racism, anti-Semitism, and homophobia, being pro-life is so morally wrong that judicial independence is a secondary concern:
"I think there are some issues that have such moral clarity that we have as a society decided that the other side is not acceptable."
