Former First Lady Hillary Clinton criticized President Trump and his coronavirus pandemic response Thursday saying, “We need a real President.”
Clinton, who most decidedly believes she’s the ‘real president’ in her own mind, also took Trump to task for a controversial retweet.
“Over the last 24 hours, the 100,000th American died of COVID-19 on Trump’s watch,” she wrote. “He’s spent the last 24 hours sharing videos that begin ‘The only good Democrat is a dead Democrat’ while complaining Twitter’s censoring him.”
Clinton concluded, “We need a real president.”

Trump’s Controversial Tweet
Hillary’s tweet also shared one from the President in which he thanked a group known as “Cowboys for Trump.”
The group posted a message referring to the media as “fake,” but included a video clip of their leader, Cuoy Griffin, a commissioner for Otero County in New Mexico, stating, “I’ve come to a place where I’ve come to the conclusion that the only good Democrat is a dead Democrat.”
Trump, in the middle of a tweetstorm, likely was sharing the message about fake news. It is unclear if he actually saw the clip in question.
That said, the video is taken from an event earlier this month in which Griffin clarified the comment by adding, “I don’t say that in the physical sense” and predicting his words would be taken out of context.
The full comment:
I’ve come to a place where I’ve come to the conclusion that the only good Democrat is a dead Democrat. I don’t say that in the physical sense and I can already see the videos getting edited where it says I wanna go murder Democrats. No, I say that in the political sense because the Democrat agenda and policy is anti-American right now. It’s where our country’s not coming to a place if you love or hate Donald Trump, our country’s coming to a place if you love or hate America.
The night Hillary Clinton lost the Presidency, the Left officially lost their minds. They haven’t gained it back since. When Joe Biden loses in November, it’s going to reach pandemic levels of insanity.

The Pretend President hillary real president
Look, we know Hillary loves to play pretend president on social media because she’ll never be one in real life.
But the reality is that the coronavirus pandemic would have been far worse if President Trump did not get ahead of this thing by implementing a travel ban and declaring an emergency – even in the midst of an impeachment circus created by Clinton’s own party.
Had Hillary been in charge, she’d have exacerbated the crisis by keeping open borders and open travel into the country, all while thanking China for the virus even as they were the sole reason for the 100,000+ deaths in the United States.
