On her MSNBC show today, Joy Reid was outraged that Hillary Clinton is being investigated by congressional committees in connection with the Uranium One deal. Reid says Hillary “is not a political adversary. She’s a pure civilian, a grandma who writes books.”
Yeah, stop picking on book-writing Grandma Hillary. She’s a “pure civilian,” and “not a political adversary.” Okay, well, true, she has formed a new political organization, Onward Together, with a logo that looks a lot like the one from her presidential campaign.
And the New York Times describes Onward Together‘s goal to be “advancing progressive causes by harnessing grass-roots opposition to President Trump’s policies.” Nothing political there!
And, if you want to get all picky about it, Hillary has said, “I am not done with politics because I literally believe that our country’s future is at stake.” But we’re sure she didn’t mean it in a political way.
Really, she’s out of politics. Not an adversary. Pure civilian. Just good old Grandma Hillary. Writing books. Got, it Joy.
JOY REID: She’s not! Hillary Clinton is not a political adversary. She’s a pure civilian. She’s a grandma who writes books and is on a book tour. So essentially you have Devin Nunes, who is the powerful chairman of the House intelligence committee, attempting to use his power to go after a pure civilian simply to try deflect from an investigation that involved the president.
