One of the more troubling yet telling reactions to the Fulton County District Attorney’s indictment against former President Donald Trump this week came from twice-failed Democratic candidate for president Hillary Clinton, who was a guest on MSNBC Tuesday night, allegedly to talk about something completely unrelated before the indictment was handed down.
As we previously reported, MSNBC host Rachel Maddow and Clinton both were gleeful over Trump’s predicament, with Clinton literally laughing out loud at the turning of America into a banana republic where the judicial system can be politicized and weaponized against your political opponents:
“Oh, I can’t believe this,” a giddy Clinton said while laughing and leaning back in her chair.
“This is not the circumstances in which I expected to be talking to you,” the liberal MSNBC host said to the former Democratic presidential candidate who lost to Trump in 2016.
“Nor me, Rachel,” Clinton replied. “It’s always good to talk to you but honestly I didn’t think it’d be under these circumstances — yet another set of indictments.”
For those who missed it, watch:

At another point during the interview, they both – without a shred of self-awareness regarding their respective penchants for election denialism – talked about how important it was that people have trust in the electoral process and how vital it was for candidates to be able to admit when they lost rather than drag something out because they can’t accept they were defeated.
“…it maybe wounds us as a democracy and in a way that’s hard to repair” otherwise, Maddow proclaimed.
No, seriously. That’s what they talked about. Watch:

In a recent media appearance, South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem was asked about Clinton’s cackling, and Noem absolutely let Clinton have it, saying Clinton made her “sick” because she was literally laughing at “the breaking of America”:
“She makes me sick. What’s happening right now in this country is a literal breaking of America. It’s a breaking of America because they are proving to us that there is no equal protection under the law, there is no treating every citizen the same. They’re using this as a weapon to destroy a political opponent and ignoring the violation of crimes that their own party and their own friends have committed. So, to have someone that has had so much information, recognizes the consequences of this type of inaction to openly sit on national TV and laugh? That person doesn’t love America. That person doesn’t love our freedom, our Republic as it was created by our great founders. Yeah, she makes me sick, and the fact that she is lightheartedly laughing at this breaking of our foundation and our Constitutional rights.”
Hillary and the left make me sick with their celebration of this hypocrisy and no equal protection under the law. pic.twitter.com/FHAH8W99pa

As I’ve said before, Hillary Clinton (and Stacey Abrams) are two of the very last people on this planet who should be standing up front and center preaching about how it’s important to “respect the results” of the “democratic process” or whatever – but they are, because the same media figures who refuse to interview Trump and his surrogates because of their “election denialism” fall to their feet in reverence for the Hillary Clintons and Stacey Abrams of this world. It’s Democrat Privilege in action.
Honestly, it’s why a growing number of people on both the left and the right are suspect of not just the electoral process here but over the pious lectures from our supposed intellectual betters on how we should “respect our sacred institutions” – unless they tell us otherwise, as Hillary Clinton has done for the seven years since she lost in 2016. Not to mention how she and her campaign and the Obama-Biden administration perpetuated the Russia collusion hoax in an effort to derail Trump’s 2016 campaign.
Yeah, pretty sure I’ll accept Hillary Clinton’s lectures on trusting the process on like the 12th of Never.
