Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton plans to start her own TV show in order to "lead" the anti-Trump resistance. A Clinton insider said "she's convinced she'd get fabulous ratings."
Though she has largely faded from public prominence after her "crushing" defeat last November, Hillary Clinton is determined "not to fade into the background," according to Clinton insiders. Apparently unable to register the fact that she was arguably the most unpopular and unelectable presidential candidate of all time, Clinton is already plotting her come-back for a run in the 2020 presidential election. According to Clinton insiders who spoke to best-selling author Ed Klein, Clinton has "been talking very seriously about the idea of having her own television show."
In discussing what such a show would entail, Clinton has suggested that she would host the program, where she would "discuss the issues of the day from a progressive point of view, have top guests, interview world leaders and progressive thinkers." Klein's source further asserted that Clinton is "convinced she'd get fabulous ratings in a political climate where there's so much anger in Democratic circles over Donald Trump's election."
However, it appears that Clinton's expectations for her return to the limelight are out-of-touch with reality, not unlike her failed presidential campaign. Just over the weekend, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) selected Tom Perez as its new chairman. Perez, who conspired to boost Clinton over Sanders in the 2016 primary, is widely disliked by the more progressive elements of the party, spurring many Democrats to openly discuss their desire to abandon the party entirely over Perez's appointment. The "Bernie Sanders wing" of the party is both influential and sizable, yet establishment Democrats – Clinton included – continue to avoid facing the reality of the situation.
Though Clinton's TV show has yet to materialize, she is already trying to make her public comeback on the heels of Perez's ascension to the top position in the DNC. A video released over the weekend shows Clinton posturing herself as the face of the anti-Trump resistance and as the "acknowledged leader-in-exile of her party."
