Hillary Clinton’s rant about Republicans is an insult to the American people. She would have you believe that the problems in our country are currently the direct result of the Republican party. The former secretary of state failed to address any real issues and complained about MAGA Republicans and voter intimidation.
Here is what she had to say.
Clinton asserted on Thursday that Republicans don’t care about voter protection; they want to intimidate people.
The former Democratic presidential contender told CNN This Morning that the Republican Party’s emphasis on crime as a significant election issue is merely an attempt to stir up all kinds of “fear and anxiety” among the electorate.
They are not addressing it or attempting to tackle it. Clinton stated that their refusal to address it should be considered an attempt to frighten voters.
Clinton said crime is a real worry for people but said Republicans “don’t want to address a problem, whether it is a crime, inflation or anything else, they want to create an issue.
She then criticized Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake for her remarks on the horrific assault on Paul Pelosi, the husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
Clinton referred to the response to the incident as a terrible sign of where we are in our society right now, stating that “people on the Republican ticket, like the woman running in Arizona,” asking who would laugh about an attack on anyone, let alone an 82-year-old man whose wife is the house speaker. She added trying to make a joke out of the attack on Paul Pelosi was wrong.
Clinton stated, “I am rarely shocked anymore,” adding that these days the party that wants us to be concerned about the crime is somehow making light of this attack and attempting to make it into a comedy. “You know, the hypocrisy is incredibly obvious,” she said.
On Thursday, Clinton is slated to rally for New York governor contender Kathy Hochul. Hochul’s campaign against Representative Lee Zeldin (R., N.Y.) has made crime a significant subject in his debate for the governorship.
Last week, when campaigning for Zeldin on Long Island, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis described the state’s crime as “totally self-inflicted.” He continued, you decrease police budgets, you do things like eliminating cash bail, and you have renegade prosecutors who won’t even enforce laws that they disagree with. It is inevitable that there will be less secure streets.
Every voter National Review interviewed mentioned crime as their top worry at the event. Hochul was criticized for her remarks about criminality during a discussion with Zeldin days before the event. Anyone who commits a crime under our rules, especially with the modification we made to bail, has consequences. She has no idea why this is so essential to you, and what she knows is that we could do more. Hochul stated, “We could do more,” in response to Zeldin’s observation that she had not mentioned locking up criminals throughout the discussion.
During the protest on Saturday, Zeldin stated that Republicans desire a government that does not enact pro-criminal legislation, district attorneys who follow the law, and unwavering support for law enforcement.
Earlier last month, two individuals were shot outside Zeldin’s Long Island home while his 16-year-old daughters were alone. Saturday, Zeldin stated to an audience that fighting crime was extremely important to him, especially when his house was the scene of a drive-by gang shooting three weekends ago; his girls were at home doing schoolwork at their kitchen table.
