Former Secretary of State and 2016 popular vote winner for President of the United States Hillary Clinton seemingly announced this week that she would not be running for the Oval Office in 2020 in an interview with a New York local news station. THE RESIST REPORT Panelists Alex Mohajer, Daniel Fusselman, Rance Collins, and Thomas McAbee weigh in on this week’s episode on whether the announcement was actually an announcement or whether it was misinterpreted by the news media.
The announcement unsurprisingly drew the taunts of Donald J. Trump, the illegitimate victor and Clinton’s former rival, which elicited an epic clapback from the former Democratic nominee.
