Hillary: Trump Wants ‘To Be Like Putin,’ Wants ‘Unaccountable, Unchecked Power’

Share:

On Tuesday, failed former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton (it always feels good to type those words!) appeared on Pod Save America, the official Barack Obama out-of-power podcast. There, she explained that President Trump is an authoritarian who desperately wants to recreate “Moscow on the Potomac.”

Yes, really.

Her description is beyond parody, actually:

“I think Trump, left to his own devices, unchecked, would become even more authoritarian than he has tried to be. Also, remember the right-wing … is very serious about calling a constitutional convention. They need 34 states. Last I checked they were like at 28, 29. Part of their gerrymandering is to control state legislatures, elect Republican governors, and to call a constitutional convention. And if you really get deep into what they’re advocating — limits on the First Amendment, no limits on the Second Amendment, limits on criminal justice — I mean there is a very insidious right-wing agenda. So when I say that he doesn’t just like Putin, he wants to be like Putin, I’m not saying he’s gonna start killing journalists, but I am saying he likes the idea of unaccountable, unchecked power. And we’ve never had to face that in a serious way in our country.” – READ MORE
