In a recent interview with PBS News Hour, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made some controversial remarks about former President Trump. She referred to him as a “wannabe dictator,” a statement that sparked a flurry of reactions from both sides of the political spectrum.
Clinton’s comments came in response to a question posed by PBS’s Geoff Bennett. He asked her if she agreed with President Biden’s assertion that Trump Republicans, or as he calls them, the MAGA Republicans, are semi-fascists and there is a growing authoritarian strain within the Republican Party.
Clinton did not hesitate to express her agreement with this sentiment.
Listen to Hillary (Witch) Clinton say that Trump manipulates social media and mainstream media.
At least she realizes that Trump is going to be the nominee.

However, it’s worth noting that these accusations come from the same individual who was part of an administration that arrested its main political opponent. Yet, she has the audacity to label Trump as the dictator.
This irony seems to be lost on Clinton, who continues to make sweeping statements without providing substantial evidence to back them up.
Clinton didn’t stop at just labeling Trump. She went on to criticize the leadership of the Republican Party, accusing them of promoting lies, being divisive, and showing loyalty to a “wannabe dictator.”
She expressed her concern about the growth of an authoritarian political force within the country, a claim that many conservatives would argue is a gross misrepresentation of their values and principles.
In her interview, Clinton also called for a return to regular politics and fact-based political discussions. She urged politicians to move away from personal attacks and lies, and instead focus on important issues such as climate change and economic growth.
However, her call for a fact-based discussion seems ironic given her own unfounded accusations against Trump and the Republican Party.
Trump doesn't hold back! This roast of Hillary Clinton is bold and fearless, one for the history books. 🎙️🔥

Clinton’s comments have been met with criticism from conservatives who argue her accusations are baseless and politically motivated.
They point out it is not Trump or the Republicans who are acting like dictators, but rather those on the left who are trying to silence dissenting voices and impose their own ideologies on the American people.
While Clinton’s comments may have made headlines, they have also highlighted the deep divide between the two major political parties in the United States.
