Clinton’s trolling fail: Hillary mocked for taunting Trump before Putin summit
“Great World Cup,” Clinton tweeted, before deploying a clumsy metaphor to question Trump’s loyalty. “Question for President Trump as he meets Putin: Do you know which team you play for?”
Great World Cup. Question for President Trump as he meets Putin: Do you know which team you play for?— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) July 16, 2018
Twitter immediately responded. To many, Clinton’s tweet was just another example of her bitterness following her shock loss at the ballot box in 2016.
Dammm she can't get over losing😂😂😂😂😂😂🤣🤣🤣🤣this is awesome to watch pic.twitter.com/QvRK8N4nwc— Tony R (@003a04f8c2054b7) July 16, 2018
Sure, Hillary keep up with your losing tour blaming anything and everyone except yourself. Wasn’t it you with the “Reset” button for Russia. Still very bitter after your SECOND tremendous lose for a Presidential run.— 4MiddleAmerica (@4MiddleAmerican) July 16, 2018
Since losing the election, Clinton has blamed everyone and everything from former President Barack Obama to the Green Party’s Jill Stein, to the media and the FBI, to sexism and ‘self-hating women’ for her loss.
However, the former secretary of state has reserved most of her scorn for Russia and its leader, Putin. In her book, ‘What Happened’, Clinton argued that Putin’s alleged support for Trump was driven by his own sexism. “He’s not exactly fond of strong women,” she wrote.
The ‘blame Russia’ line was adopted by the Democratic Party, who filed a multi-million dollar lawsuit in April accusing the Trump campaign, the Russian government and WikiLeaks, among others, of conspiring to rig the 2016 election. A Russian government spokesperson described the suit as “a kind of attempt by the Democrats to justify their defeat.”
Despite the fact that White House Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s year-long investigation has failed to disclose any proof of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, Clinton continues to see Russian boogeymen everywhere.
“The Russians aren’t done,” she said at a book signing late last year. “This is an ongoing threat and that is one of the reasons why I wrote the book and one of the reasons I’m talking about it.”
However, some Twitter users questioned what team Clinton herself plays on. Before the 2016 election, Clinton was dogged by accusations that her State Department oversaw the sale of US uranium to Russia, in exchange for a multimillion dollar donation to her and husband Bill’s Clinton Foundation.
How can anyone that help give Russia 20% of our uranium, or paid for a phony dossier from the Russians even comment, Are you mad? Why would the Russians not want you, You have kissed up to them for 30 years— Joe Bastardi (@BigJoeBastardi) July 16, 2018
Hillary tweeted, “Q for Trump as he meets Putin: Do U know which team you play for?” @POTUS never accepted $500K dollars for 1 speech from Russian bank, taken $140m for his foundation from Russian sources, or sold Russia 1/5 of US uranium supply. Which team are YOU on, Hillary?— Gov. Mike Huckabee (@GovMikeHuckabee) July 16, 2018
As Clinton and the left continue to implode over the prospect of a successful Trump/Putin summit, the President arrived in Helsinki on Monday to meet his Russian counterpart. Trump has made no indication that he will press Putin on alleged election meddling, but told reporters that he intends to discuss “everything from trade to military to missiles to nuclear to China” when he sits down to a 90-minute closed-doors meeting with the Russian president.
