Hillary Clinton Makes Hilarious Claim About Her Debate Skills

This week, former president Joe Biden listened to presidential debate tips from Hillary Clinton, who ran against Trump in 2016 but lost, saying that her preparation for the race “worked.”

In Tuesday’s op-ed, which appeared in the NY Times, the former secretary of state and first lady wrote:

I knew I had to figure out how to get under Mr. Trump’s bluster and get the American people to see the forest for the trees in 2016, so I trained hard for the debates. In 90-minute mock debates held on the same platform, I practiced maintaining composure in the face of hostile questioning and flat-out falsehoods about my background and character. An old advisor pretended to be Mr. Trump and did his best to frighten, irritate, and provoke me. That was successful.

Trump would ultimately defeat Clinton in the race.

However, she portrayed Trump in a negative light, saying that he is impossible to discuss and advising Biden to be “straight and forceful.” She also said that it would be pointless to attempt to disprove Trump’s claims.

She further attempted to lower expectations for the president, who is eight decades her senior, by stating that he “starts from a certain disadvantage because there is no way he can spend the time preparing as I did some eight years ago.”

Being president isn’t a 9-to-5 job; it’s a full-time, multi-tasking gig. She stated that this has a long-standing trend of making the incumbent do worse in the first debate.

After that, she made an effort to present her own case for why Biden should be the nominee.

Biden is already benefiting from the debate environment, even though Clinton is downplaying the importance of concentrating on his performance.

Moderators for the debate will be from CNN, a news outlet known for its anti-Trump bias. Moderators not only forbid an audience, but they also have the authority to silence candidates, a power some perceive as favoring Biden.

Trump recently told Byron York of the Washington Examiner that he thinks CNN offered him conditions they believed he would reject, but he nevertheless accepted.

My best guess is that they confronted me with an argument that I simply did not have the mental capacity to handle. Turn off the microphones when you’re not talking, so I can’t interrupt Jake Tapper and Dana Bash in this dead argument. There was no audience, but they were both sitting down. They expected my rejection because it involved CNN, Dana Bash, and Jake Tapper. I enjoy interacting with viewers, whereas he may not. They anticipated that I would decline, and then they claimed that we could not debate due to Trump’s rejection. I consented even before they offered me the conditions. He allegedly told York that they had “roped him into it.”

In an interview with Benny Johnson on Tuesday, Trump campaign spokeswoman Karoline Leavitt called it “bold” for President Trump to engage in a three-on-one confrontation on a network that is openly antagonistic to him.
