Bill Clinton continues to generate controversy wherever he goes.
Ever since his wife was defeated by Donald Trump, Clinton has not shied away from inflammatory remarks.
Now he’s attacked Donald Trump with outrageous comments that stunned everyone.
Clinton spoke to a forum in Dallas, along with former President George H.W. Bush.
Neither former President addressed Trump by name, but they did make remarks that many saw as a shot at the current President.
Clinton claimed being President was about the people and not you.
Clinton said: “If you want to be president, realize it’s about the people, not about you.”
“You want to be able to say ‘things were better off when I quit, kids had a better future, things were coming together.’ You don’t want to say, ‘God, look at all the people I beat.'”
Bashing Trump is not new for Clinton.
The former President took a shot at Trump after the 2016 election.
Business Insider reports:
Bill Clinton did not mince words when asked by the editor of a small New York newspaper for his thoughts on President-elect Donald Trump.
The editor of the Bedford-Pound Ridge Record Review, a community newspaper in Westchester County, New York, bumped into Clinton at a local bookstore last week, where the former president proceeded to give candid answers about a series of election-related topics to a group that had gathered around him.
One man asked Clinton whether he thought Trump was smart, to which the former president said “he doesn’t know much.”
“One thing he does know is how to get angry, white men to vote for him,” Clinton said.
Clinton continued his attack on questioning the official story about Russia meddling in the election.
Business Insider also reports:
The former president also criticized Trump’s response to the suspected role of Russia’s meddling in the U.S. election. Reports after the election indicated that U.S. intelligence agencies believed Russia intentionally worked to help elect Trump.
“You would need to have a single-digit IQ not to recognize what was going on,” Clinton said.
Clinton also brushed off Trump’s claim that he won the election in a landslide by defeating the former Secretary of State by a 306-to-232 electoral-vote margin.
“Landslide?” Clinton said. “I got something like 370 electoral votes [in 1992]. That was a landslide.”
It’s understandable Clinton is bitter about the election.
His wife suffered a humiliating defeat in a contest all the so-called “experts” treated as her coronation.
Trump’s victory ended her decades- long quest to become President.
But that was months ago.
Critics say it’s time to move on and carry on the tradition of former Presidents not criticizing their successors.
