They just can't quit her

by digby

















Some of my wingnut trolls have been sending me this piece from Townhall and I thought it was a nice representation of the kind of thing I see popping up all over the place among right wingers as the pressure mounts against Trump:
She feels safe enough to “come out of the woods,” exactly the time for a Trump administration special prosecutor to launch a broadside.

Mentally strong people don’t need five months to overcome setbacks. Thomas Edison famously said: “I have not failed 10,000 times. … I have succeeded in proving that those 10,000 ways will not work.” Instead of dwelling on setbacks, true leaders are resilient and persistent. Their passion for their mission—or goal—is independent of external circumstances.

Hillary says she’s been licking her wounds in the woods since November. Why can’t she pull herself together?

On the campaign trail, Trump promised supporters he would “lock her up” for what he considered to be criminal activity. He even told Clinton to her face: “If I win, I am going to instruct my attorney general to get a special prosecutor to look into your situation. Because there have never been so many lies, so much deception.” If he were president, he added: “You’d be in jail.”

I realize the Trump and Clinton families have a history of amity, including the public friendship of Trump’s eldest daughter Ivanka and Hillary’s daughter Chelsea. Which may explain why Trump has withdrawn his campaign promise to prosecute her, telling New York Times reporters she already “suffered greatly.”

Hear me out: The most loving act President Trump can do for Clinton is give her the professional and institutional help that will uphold justice—and prevent her from further hurting herself or others.

Borderline Personality Disorder

Nearly nine in 10 Americans did not find Hillary to be “honest and trustworthy” going into the 2016 presidential election. While we can’t assess Clinton’s mental state, we do know that uncontrollable lying (mythomania) is common among individuals suffering from borderline personality disorder (BPD).

Individuals with BPD may also sustain romantic relationships solely for utility (think Hillary’s choice to cling to an unloving and unfaithful man in order to climb the political ladder). Another BPD trait can be difficulty with interpersonal relationships (think WikiLeaks revelations that Clinton staffers advised her to develop a sense of humor and learn to smile).

President Trump will keep his campaign promise—while still doing right by Chelsea—if he helps Hillary get the mental help she needs in an appropriate establishment. Meanwhile, Clinton will do propitiation for her unlawful deeds that endangered our country’s national security and President Trump will send the message that no one is above the law in America.

The Woman Who Sold 20% of U.S. Uranium to Russia

Ever heard of the Uranium One deal? If not, don’t beat yourself up. It’s not like the media let you know about it.

It’s amazing to see President Trump get pummeled by the press for alleged conversations with Russia about alleged inappropriate topics when we know—for sure—that, as Secretary of State, Clinton brokered a deal on behalf of the Obama administration that released control of at least 20%, and up to 50%, of American uranium production to the Kremlin.

Wyoming was home to one of Uranium One’s biggest uranium mine holdings. Clinton’s deal, negotiated via the Committee for Foreign Investment in the United States, ensured that Wyoming uranium is now being exported and Uranium One changed from a public company to a private corporation in which Russian President Vladimir Putin’s company ARMZ owns 100% of the stock.

Uranium, when enriched, can be used to create nuclear weapons. It also can be used to power atomic energy plants. No worries.

Inventory Count

Hillary is innocent until proven guilty. That said, President Trump could fill a warehouse with files of evidence on her misdeeds for which he would be warranted in enlisting the aid of a special prosecutor.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions agreed to recuse himself from any Clinton-related probes. But Sessions could appoint someone else to investigate Clinton for these reasons:

Email Scandal: Why did she use a private, non-secure email address and server to send and receive classified information while Secretary of State? Why do WikiLeaks emails indicate that Hillary’s husband, Bill Clinton, colluded with former Attorney General Loretta Lynch on the results of the DOJ’s probe into her private server use when they met on June 29, 2016?

Sept. 11, 2012 Benghazi Terror Attack: Why did Clinton mislead Americans as to the cause of American death? (She blamed an obscure online video, even though virtually no one in Libya—or anywhere in the world—watched the video.) Why was she unprepared for and unhelpful during the attack? What role may her proposal to smuggle arms to Syrian rebels have had in this attack?

Uranium One: Why did Clinton broker a deal that gave the Kremlin ownership of 20-to-50% of American uranium production, while the Clintons and Clinton Foundation purportedly profited to the tune of $130 million?

Campaign Crookedness: What was Clinton’s role in fixing the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination in her favor over Sen. Bernie Sanders? Why did she receive help from CNN commentator Donna Brazile on presidential debate questions?


And that’s not even a complete list of Hillary’s alleged crimes. Bottom line, President Trump should pursue his campaign promise to investigate Hillary. He may feel she’s suffered greatly, but the American people have suffered far more. Besides, she appears to need serious psychological aid. She will only hurt herself and others by “coming out of the woods” to resume her old ways.

Who knows, Hillary Clinton might look great in orange pantsuits.
The writer may think this has a satirical tone but I am sent other things by readers who say the same things. They fervently want to see this.

I don't know how desperate Trump will get. But this is the kind of conspiracy stuff he reads every day and stokes with his manic tweet storms. If he gets backed into a corner it's always possible that he could decide that going after Clinton might just be the ultimate distraction. I doubt it. But this stuff is all over the internet, fueled by God knows who and for what reason. Never say never --- Trump is president after all and i don't anyone could have believed that a couple of years ago either.

*If you haven't heard the facts on the uranium thing, Politifact just fact checked it again last week after Trump tweeted it out to his millions of deluded cult followers.
