While Trump Was Freeing Hostages, Capturing Terrorists – Hillary Was Mocking His Inauguration Crowd Size

It was a big week for President Trump, but Hillary Clinton did her best to poo poo his accomplishments during her Thursday speech in Melbourne, Australia.

The US posted its lowest unemployment numbers in nearly two decades. Three American hostages were released from North Korea without preconditions. Five of the top ISIS terrorists were captured, and the Iran Deal was ripped to shreds.

The most oblivious and tone-def reaction reaction to the week came from the former secretary of state.

Clinton, speaking at a high-dollar gathering of progressives, did not touch on the recent accomplishments and instead spun the old records of Russian collusion, emails and James Comey robbing her of the presidency.

According to reporting by The Australian, Clinton said:

“The forces at work in he 2016 election are still with us in the United States and around the globe. Deep currents of anger and resentment flowing through our culture. A political press that told voters that my emails were the most important story. The unprecedented intervention in our election by the FBI director and the information warfare waged from within the Kremlin. What we have learned about Russian interference in our election is more than alarming. It is a clear and present danger to democracy. It is right out of Putin’s playbook.’’

Clinton then went on to mock Trump’s inauguration size and call his belief system “insidious and subversive to democracy.”

“When leaders deny things we can see with out own eyes, like the size of a crowd at an inauguration, or refuse to accept settled science when it comes to urgent challenges like climate change, it isn’t just frustrating to anyone who prides himself or herself on living in the fact based universe, it is insidious and subversive to democracy.

“I truly believe that our world is at a cross roads and what we do next… will matter enormously.’’

Clinton went on to call pulling out of the Iran Deal a “big mistake.”’

“Anyone who thinks bombing is the answer is woefully mis­informed. As secretary of state, I helped negotiate the crippling international sanctions that brought Iran to the table. It would be much harder a second time, now that our credibility is shot.’’

She said earlier in the week that she had considered moving to Australia after her 2016 election loss.
