Sorry, Hillary, you’re still not the president.
Nevertheless, the failed candidate relished the moment tonight when she was introduced before a crowd of 75 and a fan yelled “the real president.”
Clinton was appearing alongside Gwen Carr, mother of Eric Garner, when she was introduced.

“Former Secretary of State and presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton,” the event moderator announced.
As the small crowd began to applaud, a fan yelled, “The real president!”
Clinton laughed and nodded in approval.
It’s not the first time Clinton has pined for the presidency since losing to President Trump.
Last year, while discussing a variety of topics with Now This, Clinton envisioned leaving Earth and venturing to “Earth 2,” where that planet apparently faces the same issues as the actual Earth.

“We went to another planet with Hillary,” the caption reads as Clinton and Now This’s Nico Pitney fired off a series of topics.
“People joke about Earth 2, where you are president,” he told a giggling Hillary.
Regarding Earth 2’s North Korea, Clinton said she would have “full on diplomatic pressure” to solve the crisis with the portly dictator Kim Jong-un.
Clinton said if she was in charge, she would be “putting as much money as it took into enforcing the laws we already have” on guns, and added she would want “universal background checks.”
After answering a question about the opioid crisis, a handler attempted to cut off the interview.
“I fear we have to end it here,” a voice off camera said.
“Okay,” Pitney responded.
“You want one more? I’ll be short — one more. Because I like being on Earth 2,” Hillary said.
Pitney then asked Clinton what she would do about Russia.
“If I had been president, or on Earth 2, where I am,” Hillary said she would have an “independent commission” look into the alleged Russian “hacking” of the presidential election.
