She just won’t go away and he won’t stop adding to their ongoing rivalry. Hillary Clinton announced she will not run for President in 2020 and President Trump gleefully tweeted about it.
“(Crooked) Hillary Clinton confirms she will not run in 2020, rules out a third bid for White House.” Aw-shucks, does that mean I won’t get to run against her again? She will be sorely missed!

No doubt President Trump would love a re-match with Clinton. The Democrats, however, are responding to Hill and Bill these days with a resounding lack of interest. Their time has passed now and the party is searching for new leadership. Will it be fellow septuagenarians Joe Biden or Bernie Sanders? Will it be the group of candidates that fall within the 50 to 60-year-old category? If they want someone young and new on the scene, they can go with Beto O’Rourke or Tulsi Gabbard or even the young mayor of South Bend. There is a large field already available and it will grow more before all is said and done.
Crooked Hillary responded and upped her game a smidge by using a gif. She asked why he’s so obsessed with her.

A more important question, though, was asked by a friend of mine and a campaign veteran. Who thought that gif response was a great idea?
Who on earth is convincing her this stuff is a good idea? https://t.co/YSadBqcVRz

The leader of the Nasty Women turned to a Mean Girls gif which is pretty much what I expect in 2019. The reason Trump continues to call-out Hillary is because many on the conservative side are sick of double standards when it comes to investigating politicians. Hillary Clinton is in the middle of many corruption scandals and yet she’s as free as a bird and hasn’t faced legal consequences for anything. She skates while many in Trump’s world now face jail time, mostly over perjury traps and actions taken well before Trump’s presidential campaign. Plus, I think he just likes to taunt her.
President Trump consistently brings up Clinton, her email scandal and his 2016 election win during rallies and other events.
Since taking the White House, he has urged the Justice Department and special counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election, to investigate the handling of her emails and a uranium deal with Russia.
As long as Hillary refuses to get off the stage, she’s a target. That’s just how it works. She made quite clear that she may not be running again but she’s not going anywhere. She is fighting an obsession of her own. She can’t take a break. She has filled Bill’s spot as the Clinton who must be in the center of attention. She ran for president twice and lost so she will continue on. She is incapable of making a speech without bringing up her loss and playing the victim. Last weekend she made the absurd leap that the reason she lost was because of the Supreme Court’s decision on the Voting Rights Act. That happened in 2013, yet somehow we are to believe that this decision caused Hillary to lose thousands and thousands of votes in key states. She made the claim that people were turned away from polling places because of their skin color, their age, and other random reasons. The Queen of Identity Politics lives on to complain another day.
The Supreme Court on Tuesday effectively struck down the heart of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 by a 5-to-4 vote, freeing nine states, mostly in the South, to change their election laws without advance federal approval.
Hillary didn’t lose because of some imagined voter suppression in Wisconsin or Pennsylvania or Michigan. She lost because she is a bad candidate. She concentrated on large urban areas to peddle her divisive identity politics and American voters who don’t live on either coast decided they didn’t want what she was peddling. She should be enjoying her sunset years with her daughter and grandchildren instead of lecturing Americans and grousing about her political loss.
