Citing ’Right Wing’ Attacks, Hillary Clinton Plays Victim Card

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has another card in her political deck, which she deployed on the campaign trail: the victim card.

Clinton reminded supporters that the “right wing” was still trying to destroy her, after 25 years of attacks.

“The right wing never gives up attacking me,” she said during a campaign event in Kentucky. “I think they are really going to throw everything including the kitchen sink this time.”

(Speaking of things coming Clinton’s way, the anti-Hillary documentary film Clinton Cash debuts at the Cannes Film Festival on May 16.)

Clinton was likely referring to attacks from Republicans surrounding her questionable e-mail and private server practices, as well as Trump’s decision to label her as “Crooked Hillary.” Last week, Trump referred to Clinton as “an unbelievably nasty, mean enabler.”

Clinton told supporters that she was looking forward to debating Donald Trump in the presidential race. She also criticized Trump for his comments about others.

“We can’t be scapegoating, and finger-pointing and blaming, and demeaning and degrading and insulting our fellow Americans,” she said. “That is not what we are, and it’s time that we said ‘enough.’”

Kentucky is scheduled to hold the Democratic presidential primary on May 17.
