Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton sparked an avalanche of mockery by declaring Donald Trump’s ego a threat to the legitimacy of American democracy, proving that his efforts to delegitimize the 2016 vote have not been forgotten .
Clinton took to Twitter to take the stand on Friday, saying “Protecting a man’s ego is not worth damaging the legitimacy of our democracy.“
The comment presumably referred to Trump, who challenged the presidential election results earlier this month, refusing to give in to Democratic challenger Joe Biden. However, social media users did a double take, pointing out that Clinton’s tweet was an eerily accurate description of his own behavior after his 2016 loss to Trump.
“How cool is it to take over 3 years of lies to protect a woman’s ego, Amirite?” snarked one user, like others, reminded Clinton in detail of how she was one of the main forces behind the Russiagate conspiracy theory that attempted to delegitimize Trump’s victory four years ago as the product of his “connivanceWith the Kremlin, which has never been proven despite the enormous amount of time and taxpayer dollars spent on multiple investigations into the allegations.
Some took Clinton’s inability to name Trump and followed him, “Okay“That democracy must be preserved even if it hurts Biden’s ego.
Others pointed out that Clinton herself had urged Biden not to concede in any way.
At least one user noticed something else strange in Clinton’s tweet – and indeed, similar phrases appeared to be on the lips of several “ verified ” anti-Trump Twitter accounts.
Trump has maintained since before election day that postal voting would produce fraudulent results – a claim that Democrats rejected.
