When is the mainstream media just going to treat Hillary Clinton like a presidential candidate-in-waiting?
The failed 2016 Democrat nominee blistered President Trump to a group of college graduates on Wednesday, underscoring she’s thinking about politics as students are hoping for a positive message to send them out to their careers.
Speaking to graduates of Hunter College in New York City, Hillary Clinton address school president Jennifer Raab.
“Madame President — that has a nice ring to it,” she said as the crowd at Madison Square Garden responded positively.
Not long after, she set her sights on the man who defeated her in 2016.
“There may not be tanks in our streets, but make no mistake, we are witnessing an assault on the rule of law and the foundations of our democracy,” she said as graduates looked bored, with some staring at the floor while others perused the the rafters.
“Just today, before this graduation ceremony started, we heard from the special counsel, Robert Mueller, who said there were multiple systemic efforts to interfere in our election, and that allegation deserves the attention of every American,” Clinton said.
“But what we’ve seen from the administration is the complete refusal to condemn a foreign power who attacked our democracy or to take even the most basic steps to protect our voting systems for the future,” she claimed. “Despite the fact that all the professionals who study this say more attacks are coming,” she continued as a woman in the front row looked at her watch.
“And it’s so clear that there is a real challenge to get to the root of that problem. In fact, it seems clear, it seems absolutely clear we’ve got to deal with what has been investigated and reported,” she said.
A graduate yawned as Clinton continued, “It can be tempting to read the news and throw your hands up and conclude nothing matters, nothing will change so why even bother. But it does really, really matter. And this is no time for apathy. Instead, it should be a time for action,” she told the graduates who looked like they could care less.
“Citizenship is not a spectator sport. You’ve got to get in the game,” she said as a smattering of applause slowly arose from the audience.
“And in a time we are beset by lies and propaganda, it is more important than ever to seek out credible sources of information,” she said, claiming many leaders fail to act due to a lack of “political will.”
