When Hillary visited The Late Show with Stephen Colbert Friday evening, she was greeted with a standing ovation. She addressed many of the same issues she spoke about with Rachel Maddow.  I will not revisit those.

On the subject of the Mueller investigation, she did say something on this show that she did not say the other night. It is an important point. She cited a difference between crimes committed prior to assuming office and those committed in office. It is an important distinction. She said a president can be the subject of a criminal investigation. When asked if he can be indicted, she made a distinction between actions before taking office and after taking office.  If before, she believes he can be indicted. If after, it then falls under the impeachment process.

While she does have a paperback edition of What Happened out that contains an updated supplement, her real reason, I think, for hitting the talk show circuit is to emphasize that: 1) indeed our democracy is in critical condition and 2) no caped crusader, including her, is going to come swooping in to save it. She made these points on both TV appearances.

We are the only ones who can save it, and there is only one way we are going to be able to do that: get out the vote. Notice I did not say “vote.” I said “get out the vote.” That means that we have to work as hard as we did in 2016 to get people to the polls. We have to convince them of the importance of this election and talk to them about the candidates who have pledged to address the issues closest to us. We have to remind people to register before deadlines. We also have to remind people to check their registrations to be sure they have not been purged – sad as that is to say. Finally, we have to make sure we get our friends, families, and neighbors to the polls. When Democrats vote, Democrats win.

Standing ovation

Here is an article from The Daily Beast.

 

When Hillary Clinton sat down for an interview with Stephen Colbert set to air on Friday night’s Late Show, it was still up in the air whether or not Christine Blasey Ford would agree to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee next week about her sexual-assault allegation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

But stepping back to before she lost the 2016 election to Donald Trump, Colbert had a bigger-picture question for Clinton: “Do you think the nomination process in general is irreparably damaged following the Republicans not allowing Merrick Garland to be heard?”

“Well, it’s one of the reasons I think a lot of Americans are just fed up with the political process,” Clinton, who was promoting the paperback release of her book What Happened, replied. “Because in a democracy, you have to have at least enough trust to be able to work with each other and try to solve difficult problems. When the Republicans refused to give a distinguished judge, appointed by President Obama, even the courtesy of meetings let alone a hearing, that sent such a terrible message.”

Hillary Clinton trolls Trump in a surprise appearance at the 2018 Grammys

(CNN)Hillary Clinton made a surprise appearance on Sunday night in a Grammy Awards comedy bit that took a jab at President Trump.

The former presidential candidate, along with Cher, Snoop Dogg, Cardi B, John Legend and DJ Khaled were among those who read excerpts from Michael Wolff’s “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House,” the hit book about Trump’s first year in the White House.

The bit shows Grammy host James Corden holding auditions for the book reading in hopes of nabbing next year’s best spoken word album with famous musicians trying out for the coveted role.

Clinton’s face was covered by the book when she first appeared on screen in the pre-taped sketch, but the crowd cheered when she lowered the book to reveal her face.

Clinton read the famous line about Trump’s love for fast food: “He had a longtime fear of being poisoned. One reason why he liked to eat at McDonalds. No one knew he was coming and the food was safely pre-made.”
