[196] Narcissism

I was expecting more from Hillary Clinton than narcissism. But that is what we are getting. Whether in an interview, a commencement speech, or virtually any other venue, Hillary continues to talk about how the election was taken from her—by James Comey to the Trump-colluding Russians and everything in between.

Clinton regularly professes she entered politics for the public good. The key word in that sentence is public. Her sour grapes spitting rhetoric does not align with that profession of intent. It suggests a self-centered, I-can’t-believe-I-lost mindset. Worse, she seems constitutionally unable to see her defeat in the context of her own failings. I am not going to recite those. The right wingers never tire of doing that. But what is of concern is that she seems to be engaging in narcissistic self-protection rather than sober introspection. As Fox’s Greg Gutfeld stated, she and Bill have become the acid reflux of the Democratic Party. It is time for both to go away—at least for awhile. It may be healthy for them to do so. It will certainly be in the public good for now. DC
