Some in the Democratic Party, maybe a majority by now, know the Clinton era is over. Hillary Clinton lost. She’s done. She’s not going to run again. It’s time for new blood. They would like nothing more than to just move on from their stinging defeat in 2016, and they sure would like it if the former secretary of state and two-time presidential loser, along with her inner circle, would stop mentioning it. Alas, they can’t help themselves. Hillary’s new book rehashed 2016, in which the former first lady went on a rampage against the DNC, the media, Obama, Biden, Bernie Sanders, Wikileaks, Russia, sexism, and misogyny. Then, she absconds to India, where she calls Trump voters deplorable again; she didn’t say the word, but described them as such.
The DNC seems like they just want her to get out of the way, but they can’t. Hillary Clinton has decided to book a fundraiser for her nonprofit on the same day and in the same city (via PageSix):
Just as Democratic donors thought they’d finally put away wallets for Hillary Clinton, she’s coming back to NYC for a fundraiser for her nonprofit — while also creating a party stink by throwing the bash at the exact same time as an event for DNC chairman Tom Perez.
Clinton will be in town on April 30 for her “Onward Together” organization, to support young political leaders.
With great fanfare, Clinton announced in an email to her 2016 supporters that she is launching the Onward Together Leadership Council and that they could become charter members — in return for coughing up at least $10,000.
An insider told us, “It will be interesting to see who goes to Hillary and who goes to Tom.”
The DNC is in dismal financial shape. They’re millions of dollars in debt and they just took out a $2 million loanto keep the lights on.
