So, what’s next for two-time presidential loser Hillary Clinton? She has a PAC that’s dedicated to stopping the Trump agenda. She's still out there bashing Donald Trump, his supporters, and whining about her 2016 loss. In doing so, she’s giving half her party headaches for rehashing and reopening the wounds of 2016, while the other half still thinks she’s great, a big name attraction for fundraising, and an asset on the trail. Well, she sucks, she’s a terrible campaigner, but she does know how to fill those war chests.
For the far left wing of the party that backed Bernie Sanders, they want her gone. She’s not going to run again. She’s just reminding voters how the Democratic Party doesn’t care about white working class voters, energizing GOP voters for the midterms, and boosting their fundraising as well. On the other hand, the Democratic Party is so depleted of big names now that the Clinton chapter in American politics is over, that they have no one to fill the void. Former President Obama, yes—but he also energizes and mobilizes GOP voters against Democrats as well.
The former first lady recently announced that her dream job would be post-2016: running Facebook. Fake news alerts would be reactivated. The hate speech warnings would be launched. She made these remarks after being this years’ recipient of the Radcliffe Medal from the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard University (via WaPo):
Since her defeat in the 2016 election, speculation has churned about Hillary Clinton and what she set her mind to after losing a second run for the U.S. presidency.
On Friday, Clinton indicated that a dream job of hers, at least in the private sector, would be to run a high-profile company: Facebook.
Speaking at Harvard University before receiving an award on Friday, Clinton was asked a hypothetical question by moderator Maura Healey, a fellow Democrat and attorney general of Massachusetts: If Clinton could be chief executive of any company right now, which company would she choose?
“Facebook,” Clinton said without hesitating, as she and Healey paused to laugh with the audience.
Clinton said that she would want to be in charge of the social media giant because of the immense power it has over the world’s flow of information.
So, with Hillary in charge, I guess there would be zero negative stories about her, Bill, Chelsea, The Clinton Foundation, Uranium One, or her bashing half the electorate in 2016 appearing on the social media platform, right? Well, maybe not—but dear Lord if this turns into an actual hiring. Given Facebook’s controversy with Cambridge Analytica and privacy, they might want to avoid drumming up more controversy.
