CNN’s Toobin: Democrats ‘Pathetic’ to Worry About Hillary Clinton Motivating GOP Base

CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin called Democrats “pathetic” and “afraid of everything” in response to a new interview from Hillary Clinton.

Clinton slammed Republicans in the CNN interview and said, “You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about.”

Wolf Blitzer asked Toobin tonight if Clinton helps or hurts Democrats with her comments mere weeks from the midterm elections.

Toobin responded, “I think Democrats are pathetic. They are afraid of everything. It’s like ‘Oh, we can’t have Hillary Clinton talk because it’ll motive the Republican base. We can’t have Barack Obama talk because it’ll motive their base. We can’t talk about impeachment or it’ll motive their base.’ You know what? Hillary Clinton got three million more votes than the other guy in 2016. I don’t see why she shouldn’t be campaigning around the country. I don’t see why Barack Obama shouldn’t be campaigning.”

“She is an enormously important figure in American history,” he continued. “She got 60-plus million votes. I don’t see why she shouldn’t speak out like any other famous person.”

Phil Mudd, on the other hand, argued Clinton needs an “extended vacation.” He said, “An east coast liberal lost to the biggest clown candidate in presidential history.”
