Hillary Clinton ORDERS Conservatives Be Put in CAMPS As FBI TARGETS Trump Supporters

Hillary Clinton: MAGA ‘cult members’ need ‘deprogramming

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton railed against supporters of former President Trump during a new CNN interview (below), comparing those who still support the former president after the Jan. 6, 2021, insurrection to members of a cult.

“Maybe there needs to be a formal deprogramming of the cult members,” she said in a clip released late Thursday.

“And sadly, so many of those extremists, those MAGA extremists, take their marching orders from Donald Trump, who has no credibility left by any measure,” Clinton added. “He’s only in it for himself.”

She predicted Trump will likely be the 2024 GOP presidential nominee, and she believes President Biden can beat him again.

“One will wreck our democracy. One violates the law on a regular basis. One appeals to the worst in our collective psyche. The other gets things done,” she said in the interview with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour. “Why is that a hard choice?”

A Trump-affiliated super PAC denounced Clinton’s comments early Friday, saying they are akin to her wanting “re-education camps.”

“President Trump has said countless times that they are only coming after him, because he stands in their way from coming after you — and Hillary Clinton just confirmed that to be true,” Make America Great Again Inc. spokesperson Karoline Leavitt said. “Tens of millions of Americans will reject the Democrat Party’s re-education camp agenda in November 2024 when we make Donald Trump the 47th President of the United States,”

Clinton also commented on the ongoing Republican leadership race in the House of Representatives, after former Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) was ousted from the job Tuesday by a small group of disgruntled GOP members voting with Democrats.

The GOP is in “an absolute hostage situation with its most extreme members,” Clinton said.

“[McCarthy] was not continuing to be captive to the far-right extremists. So they toppled him. It was a very small number as you look at the vote. But now we’re reaping the consequences of their misbehavior,” she added.

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) and Majority Leader Steve Scalise (R-La.) are the front-runners for the job. Trump backed Jordan late Thursday after rumors circulated the former president could be interested in the role.

And she urged the new Republican Speaker, whoever that may be, to rein in the party’s right wing.

“At some point, there needs to be a backlash against the control that this small group of extremists have,” she said on CNN. “And I don’t know who will lead that, but let’s hope whoever becomes the new Speaker will.”  source

Hillary takes on Trump supporters: ‘There needs to be a formal deprogramming of the cult members’

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said there needs to be a “formal deprogramming” of supporters of former President Donald Trump, calling them “cult members.”

“Maybe there needs to be a formal deprogramming of the cult members,” the former Democratic presidential nominee said in a CNN interview posted Thursday.

She said the two parties need to find a way to work together again because that’s how it used to be, even though there were “very bitter battles” over policies such as gun control, climate change, the economy and taxes.

“It will require us defeating those most extreme measures and the people who promote them in order to try to get to some common ground where people can again work together,” she said. “That’s the way it used to be.”

“But there wasn’t this little tail of extremism, waving, you know, wagging the dog of the Republican Party as it is today,” she said. “And sadly, so many of those extremists, those MAGA extremists, take their marching orders from Donald Trump, who has no credibility left by any measure. He’s only in it for himself.” source
