Hillary Clinton, who once referred to African-American youth as “super predators,” is accusing President Donald Trump of being racist.

During an interview with The Guardian, the twice failed presidential candidate said Trump has a long “streak of racism” and “the whole package of bigotry.”
“This is a person who believes in very little, but he does have visceral responses to what goes on in the world around him. He does have a strong streak of racism that goes back to his early years,” Clinton said.
She added: “I include his anti-immigrant tirades because he characterizes immigrants in very racially derogatory ways, but he was Islamophobic, he was anti-women, he really had the whole package of bigotry that he was putting on offer to those who were intrigued and attracted to him.”
Clinton, who infamously supported former President Bill Clinton’s radical policies that many argue resulted in African-Americans being unfairly targeted and thrown in jail, also accused Trump of “raising the specter of criminal immigrants” for political points.
“He was, from the very first day of his campaign, raising the [specter] of criminal immigrants and the like. So the anti-immigrant piece coupled with things that he said, the kind of people who supported him, former Ku Klux Klan members and the like, the message that we called the dogwhistle, was incredibly loud. It was: ‘I’m on your side because I don’t like the same people you don’t like. Or at least I’m going to say I don’t and that counts for something,’” Clinton complained.

Clinton went on to claim that Trump is creating an “alternative reality” because he has studied other “authoritarian regimes and how they manipulate and control people.”
“He is someone who craves dominance over any situation he finds himself in. He craves adulation, flattery, all of which fit the profile of leaders we can remember from the past,” Clinton added of Trump.
If anyone is living in an “alternative reality,” many might argue that it’s Clinton.
Last month, she claimed that her husband’s affair in the White House, which led to his impeachment in the House of Representatives, was “not an abuse of power.”
The former president was impeached in the House for perjury and obstruction of justice in the case involving his admitted affair with Monica Lewinsky. The former president admitted to having a sexual relationship with an intern in the White House, the same home his family was living in at the time.
Several other women have also accused the former president of rape, sexual abuse, and sexual assault.
But none of that mattered to Hillary, who apparently maintains her husband is innocent and that he had no reason to step down as president at the time.
This is also the same woman who claims to be a champion for women and that they should always be believed when they come forward with accusations.
