Despite the fact the election ended almost five months ago, the left has not yet let go.
From the “Not My President” signs, to the recorded inauguration day tantrums still making the rounds on social media, to even the hope that President Donald Trump will be impeached in the near future, Democrats cannot seem to accept the election results and move on.
However, one Democratic voice had remained blessedly quiet – that is until now.
At the Society of Irish Women’s 19th Annual St Patrick’s Day dinner in Scranton, Pennsylvania, former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton indicated she will most likely be stepping back into the spotlight.

“I am ready to come out of the woods and to shine a light on what’s already happening around kitchen tables at dinners like this to help draw strength to enable everyone to keep going, that’s the spirit of Scranton,” Hillary said, referencing a video of her hiking near her New York home that spread after the election.
These comments follow a slew of articles and videos from leftists and feminists claiming they are now living in fear, or that they simply cannot stop crying over the election results. See the medium.com article “No you can’t: Why I’m still crying over Hillary’s loss” as a prime example.
Hillary herself admitted that, like many of her friends, she too is having trouble watching the news.
Clinton is already committed to several public events in the upcoming months, including a commencement address at Wellesley College, her alma mater, in May.
In a departure from the shrill accusations of fascism, racism, and every other generalized “-ism” coming from the defeated left, Clinton also stated her intentions to reach out to those who do not agree with her politically.
“I do not believe that we can let political divides harden into personal divides,” Clinton said. “We can’t just ignore or turn a cold shoulder because we disagree politically. We have to listen to each other and learn from each other.”
It is doubtful, though, that the politician who unashamedly told coal miners she would put them out of work if elected will actually “learn” anything from the middle-America Trump voters she previously labeled as a homophobic, racist, xenophobic, Islamaphobic “basket of deplorables.”
What is even more disturbing than the knowledge that Hillary Clinton will be attempting to sway national discussion once again, are the whispers that she will be running for political office soon.
Mere days before her announcement that she would be coming back into the public eye, TMZ released a story indicating the former Secretary of State was considering a run for mayor of New York City.
Their source claimed to have been at a small gathering of “politically connected” people, along with Clinton herself.
She seemed to be gauging the interest and potential support for her candidacy within her political circles, making it clear that she was considering throwing her hat in the ring, according to TMZ’s source.
While the meeting does not count as any concrete preparation for a mayoral campaign, the timing, just before she begins increasing her public speaking schedule again, is disheartening to those who hoped America had seen the last of Hillary Clinton.
We may soon need to brace ourselves once more against the out-of-touch rants of this defeated presidential candidate.
