I’ve said this before.
But I’m convinced that Hillary Clinton doesn’t have a single friend.
Because if she did, I imagine somebody would advise her to stop. Just stop.
It’s been over a year since she lost to Donald Trump and Hillary is still playing, “Let’s pretend I won” games during interviews.
She’s turning into Mrs. Havisham from “Great Expectations” – frozen in time on November 8, 2016. Forever stuck in that moment and endlessly reliving her humiliating defeat.
But instead of a wedding dress, our Mrs. Havisham is wearing her inauguration gown until it frays at the edges and turns yellow.
If Hillary Havisham had any friends, one of them would sit her down and tell her playing these alternate reality “what-if” games is fine for a child. But when they’re played by a woman pushing seventy it makes her look all kinds of delusional.
When I was about four or five, there was this TV show called “Lost in Space.” It was based on the novel “Swiss Family Robinson.” But instead of the Robinsons being lost on a remote island, they were lost in space.
Any old how.
For some reason, I decided that June Lockhart – the woman who played the Matriarch of the Robinsons – was my mother-in-law.
Now, I had no idea what a mother-in-law was, or that you needed a spouse to have one. But since I already had a mother, it made sense to me that June Lockhart would be my mother-in-law.
From time-to-time, my Mom would ask, “How’s your mother-in-law?”
And I would launch into a long story of the exciting adventures I had with June.
When you’re four or five, having an active make-believe, fantasy life is pretty normal.
But when you’re pushing seventy?
Not so much.
I tried to watch the two-minute video clip over at the American Mirror of Hillary playing “let’s pretend we’re on Earth 2 and I’m president” with an interviewer named Nico Pitney.
But I couldn’t get through it.
It’s agonizingly painful to watch.
Encouraging Hillary to fantasize about a world in which she won the election isn’t helping her at all.
It doesn’t make Hillary look smart and accomplished.
It doesn’t make her look remotely grounded.
Instead, it makes her look like a bitter, angry woman who simply cannot let go of the past.
She’s stuck like Mrs. Havisham.
And I’m beginning to wonder if these interviewers playing “Let’s Pretend” with the near-septuagenarian loser are doing it on purpose.
Is this their way of so completely discrediting Hillary Clinton that she’s forced to retire to obscurity?
Why else would anyone insist on indulging Hillary in bitter flights of fancy?
Now, don’t get me wrong. I’m not feeling sorry for Hillary Clinton.
If she were anybody else, maybe I would. But not for Hillary. She’s hardly someone who evokes pity.
But is there not one person in her circle of acquaintances who cares enough about her to pull Hillary aside and urge her to move on?
