President Donald Trump urged former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to run for the Democratic nomination for the presidency in 2020 “to try and steal it away from” Sen. Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren (D-MA) earlier today.
Clinton gave a response that will only fuel the rumor and speculation that she will make her third bid for the presidency next year.
Don’t tempt me. Do your job.

Clinton has recently been on a press junket, hoping to make herself a relevant figure within politics once again. With the Democratic field in shambles as front-runner Joe Biden’s behavior in Ukraine is under the microscope, the egomaniacal former first lady may have her sights set on another presidential run.
“He knows he’s an illegitimate president. And I think his obsession with trying to undermine and discredit the work of all of our intelligence agencies, of the FBI, of other governments that were part of disclosing … information they had about interactions between the Trump campaign and allies of Trump with Russians, just speaks to the underlying illegitimacy of his presidency,” Clinton said during a recent PBS interview to promote the book “Gutsy Women” written with her daughter Chelsea.
“His obsession with me and this really absurd continuation of something that was investigated repeatedly and no wrongdoing ever found is another attempt to distract and divert attention from his own behavior,” she added.
Clinton has pushed impeachment of Trump in recent days over his media-created scandal with the Ukraine:
“I did not come to that decision easily or quickly, but this is an emergency as I see it,” Clinton said in an interview to PEOPLE. “This latest behavior around Ukraine, trying to enlist the president of Ukraine in a plot to undermine former Vice President Biden or lose the military aid he needs to defend against Trump’s friend, Vladimir Putin — if that’s not an impeachable offense, I don’t know what is.”
Political pollster Scott Rasmussen has speculated that a big announcement from Clinton is coming in the near future, perhaps during a massive Oct. 16 fundraising event set to be held at her home.
BIG: Big News for Hillary Clinton supporters coming at 10:30 EST!
(Note to political press: you should have bought those tickets for the October 16th event at her house.) https://t.co/0h9pRMn0o0

“The Democratic National Committee and the Women’s Leadership Forum cordially invite you to dinner and conversation at the home of Hillary Rodham Clinton,” the Democratic Party wrote on their page for the event.
Tickets start at $35,000 per plate, and go as high as $50,000 per plate to be a “champion” of the event. It may be the venue where Clinton makes her official announcement that she will be challenging for the opportunity to lose to Trump yet again in 2020.
Obama Reportedly Said Pete Buttigieg Too ‘Gay’ and ‘Short’ to be President
Tell it like it is, Barack!
Former president Barack Hussein Obama reportedly said that former South Bend, Ind. Mayor Pete Buttigieg was too “gay” and too “short” to be a serious presidential contender during the midst of the 2020 presidential race.
Buttigieg, who ran for president in 2020 and surprisingly won the Iowa caucus, is now the Transportation Secretary under President-imposed Joe Biden. He is considered a rising star in the Democrat Party due to his homosexual lifestyle, which includes being gay married to a husband, but Obama is apparently a doubter.
Obama reportedly made his remarks while addressing a group of black Democrat donors in Oct. 2019 as he was attempting to exert his influence over the process. The revelation comes from a new book authored by The Hill’s Amie Parnes and NBC’s Jonathan Allen titled, Lucky: How Joe Biden Barely Won the Presidency.
At the time, Obama was apparently supporting Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) for president. The excerpt from the book, which includes various pot shots made by Obama toward Buttigieg, reads as follows:
When he was asked to return to the original question on his advice, Obama said he liked Buttigieg, a rising talent who’d worked on his own campaign. But despite his affinity for the South Bend mayor, he rattled off a list of reasons why Buttigieg couldn’t win.
“He’s thirty- eight,” Obama said, pausing for dramatic effect, “but he looks thirty.” The audience laughed. Obama was on a roll, using the tone of light ridicule he some-times pointed at himself — ” big ears” and “a funny name,” he’d said so many times before. Now, it was directed at Buttigieg. “He’s the mayor of a small town,” the former president continued. “He’s gay,” Obama said, “and he’s short.” More laughter.
Only months earlier, Buttigieg had sat in Obama’s postpresidential office in Washington seeking counsel on how to maintain equanimity in the face of homophobia on the campaign trail. Now, behind his back, Obama was riffing on him to some of the wealthiest Black men in America at a time when Buttigieg had been dubbed “Mayo Pete” by critics who believed he couldn’t connect with African American voters.
It goes without saying that any conservative who made similar remarks would be pilloried by the fake news media. Obama will get a pass, although the comments may make the former president’s relationship with the former mayor strained as Buttigieg climbs up the political ladder undeservedly due solely to identity politics.
