Hillary Clinton Slams Trump: ‘He Knows He’s an Illegitimate President’

Former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has mostly been out of the public eye since she lost to President Donald Trump in 2016, but she returned to the news cycle last week with a string of appearances on the talk and late-night show circuit.

Speaking to a crowd on Monday, Clinton said, “Trump knows he’s an illegitimate president.”

The former presidential candidate was speaking about Trump’s phone call with the president of Ukraine, in which he asked the leader to dig up dirt on Joe Biden. Clinton likened Trump’s request of the Ukrainians to his request during the 2016 election season — the time that he famously spouted “Russia if you’re listening” and asked the Russians to dig up Clinton’s emails.

Clinton said, “In the 2016 election, Trump basically said ‘Russia if you’re listening, you will be richly rewarded if you can find Hillary Clinton’s emails.’ And it was all out in the open and, of course, we know the Russians hacked the DNC, hacked my campaign. So now, it’s also in the open.”

Here’s a clip of her remarks:

Clinton’s recent public showings have largely focused around criticism of Trump. During one recent appearance on “CBS Sunday Morning,” Clinton said that losing to Trump was like “losing to a corrupt human tornado.”

The smear tactics that Trump is trying to use on Joe Biden — accusing the former vice president of corruption based on a string of flimsy conspiracy theories — are almost identical to the playbook that he used with Hillary Clinton.

The president has seemed entirely focused over the past few weeks on declaring that he is simply trying to root out corruption. He insists that the phone call in which he asked the Ukrainian president for dirt on Biden was perfectly routine and that Democrats investigating his calls and dealings are only head-hungry politicians.

What do you think?

Hmmm, if the tables were turned and she had won the electoral but not the popular vote would she willingly admit she was an illegitimate President. No answer needed, we all know it would never even be brought up. She has no class.

LOL…NOT ONE IJR poster can defend the statement that losing to Trump was “like losing to a corrupt human tornado”!!!


Ugh… go away lady. Find a hobby outside of politics…


I really hope she runs again. BWAHAHA! She’s a sore loser (like the rest of the Dims) and seeks to “de-legitimize” the results of a three-year old election. Living in the past, Hillary? The rest of your party obviously is doing so.

She lost. Her party picked a loser. She insulted at least half of the voters in this country and CONTINUES to do so with statements like this.

She lost twice. She’s not confused. She’s Einstein’s definition of insanity.


She’ll do anything to be President. Perhaps weigh in as Bernie or Warren’s VP. How long can a 78 year old with heart problems last? Warren might be a little trickier to get rid of but Hillary has lots of experience there. She’s not done yet. Think back to previous elections, did the loser make the talk show circuits, write a book, more late night shows? She’s clearly not done with politics and that is scary.

He knows he is illegitimate?
He won the election and some folks still can’t believe it. 3 years later.
Come on H and her peeps- enough is enough. H has come up with so many “excuses” why she lost. SHE is the reason she lost. I would think that a “woke” population would know that.
No personal responsibility- that is the lefts mantra.

We need to get back to personal responsibility. Then we can have honest conversations but until then all you have is entitled people who aren’t entitled to anything
