Hillary Clinton: Trump should go back to the golf course full-time
2016 presidential nominee Hillary Clinton joined comedian Amy Schumer for a virtual interview that aired Tuesday where she said she spends most of her time working to send President Donald Trump back to the golf course full-time.
“I’m spending most of my time trying to do everything I can to retire him and to send him back to the golf course full-time,” Clinton told Schumer.
Clinton said she feels a sense of responsibility for Trump’s presidency having lost to him in 2016.
“I didn’t think I was going to lose. But I felt a sense of real responsibility, like how did this happen? Of course, I was really worried about Trump,” Clinton said. “But he’s been worse than I even feared he would be, and as I tried to warn people he would be.”
“So, I have carried with me this real sense of deep responsibility that, ‘Oh, my gosh, I just can’t bear the fact this man became president.’ For whatever combination of reasons, and there were a lot of reasons, I win a popular vote and lose the Electoral College by literally a handful,” she added.
The former secretary of state has mainly hidden from the spotlight since her loss to Trump but has surfaced again recently as a Biden surrogate. She’s specifically taken issue with Trump’s response to COVID-19 and ongoing protests.
“These terrible decisions he made around peaceful protesters and trying to send in the military and so much that is contrary to the Constitution, to our fundamental values to humanity,” Clinton said.
Clinton said that the protests are really a moment of moral reckoning and that the country can’t turn away from the video footage showing the murder of George Floyd.
“They can’t turn away from that eight-minute-and-46-second video. They can’t turn away from the look on that policeman’s face where he just literally shifted his body and put his hand in his pocket and put greater pressure on Floyd.”
Schumer is a second cousin to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.
