During an appearance on MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show”, failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton attempted to mock President Donald J. Trump by making the same joke he did about the Russians finding her deleted emails.
While on the campaign trail, President Trump famously joked that he hoped Russia could find Clinton’s purged emails. Many Republicans believed she broke the law when she deleted thousands of emails before they could be reviewed by the government, and President Trump seized on this issue during the 2016 campaign.
“If [the hacking] is Russia, it’s really bad for a different reason, because it shows how little respect they have for our country when they would hack into a major party and get everything,” said the president. “I will tell you this: Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you are able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing. I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press.”
Many Democrats have attempted to reframe this obvious joke as the mythical “Russian collusion” they have been desperately looking for since President Trump’s election, and now Clinton appears to have joined in on the fantasy, calling for China to steal President Trump’s tax returns.
“Why don’t we ask China to back us?” asked Clinton, rhetorically. “Hey China, if you’re listening, why don’t you get Trump’s tax returns. I’m sure the media would richly reward you.”
“Let’s have a great power contest, and let’s get the Chinese in on the side of somebody else.”
Clinton also made the baseless claim that the Russians are attempting to aid Republicans, when the Mueller report revealed that they not only also supported Sen. Bernie Sanders, they also supported Black Lives Matter, the LGBT community, and Islam.
Of course, the irony becomes palpable when considering the reports that former vice president turned Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden’s son completed a deal worth $1.5 billion with China.

POLL: 15% of Sanders Supporters Plan to Vote For Donald Trump in November
They prefer Trump to an establishment Democrat.
New polling from ABC suggests that Donald Trump is primed to win over a significant share of Bernie Sanders primary voters in the November general election, suggesting that some of Bernie’s Bros don’t intend to bend the knee to likely establishment Democratic nominee Joe Biden.
The poll reveals that 15% of self-identifying Bernie Sanders supporters already plan on voting for Trump in November. President Trump ultimately ended up winning the votes of 12% of 2016 Sanders supporters, suggesting he’s increased his appeal to the democratic socialist’s supporters.
Some centrist Democrats have expressed their personal distaste of Sanders(and some Gabbard) supporters on account of their perceived unwillingness to vote for the Democratic nominee, forgetting that it’s the obligation of American political candidates to win the votes of citizens who chose to support their opponents in primaries.
While Trump and Sanders are on opposite ends of the American political spectrum, they could be compared in a sense that they’re both considered political populists. Trump’s policy positions on trade, some foreign policy, and American manufacturing are closer to the Sanders’ views than Joe Biden’s reheated neoliberal political program.
Perhaps even more significantly, the poll shows that Biden gauges the lowest ever recorded “enthusiasm level” for a Democratic Presidential nominee. A paltry 24% of likely Biden voters describe themselves as “very enthusiastic” to vote for him in November.
With a voter base that seems lethargic in an unprecedented fashion, it’s possible that Joe Biden could go down as the most “low energy” major Presidential candidate in recent American political history.
The poll’s general election survey reveals a tight contest between Biden and Trump, with the former Vice President leading within the margin of error by 49% to 47%. Trump’s polling has improved significantly in recent weeks in ABC’s surveys, in part because of high public approval of the federal response to the Chinese coronavirus epidemic.
Biden seems to have largely disappeared from the national conversation in the wake of the historical epidemic, only sparsely appearing on public broadcasts in bizarre gaffe-filled livestreams from a converted recreation room in his Delaware home.
