Hillary Clinton jokes about black Democrats: ‘I know they all look alike’

Hillary Clinton jokes about black Democrats: ‘I know they all look alike’

During an interview with Kara Swisher for the Recode Decode podcast published Saturday, Clinton said she didn't want to run for president again, but added, "I'd like to be president".

There were also some other concerns about Clinton's joke; namely the fact that she was still trying to live down her 1996 "super predators" comment, which her then-Democratic primary opponent Bernie Sanders said in 2015 was about young Black men who were disproportionately imprisoned because of former President Bill Clinton's controversial 1994 crime bill.

"I'm not even going to even think about it until we get through this Nov 6 election", she said.

Asked by Swisher whether she would be doing any of the lifting, Clinton said: "I have no idea". 'And I don't think it's politically correct to say, we value that'.

Clinton's comments come as speculation has increased over whether she will launch another bid after the midterm elections.

"Tweeps, simmer down!" Ms Swisher wrote on Twitter.

Ms. Swisher noted to her that she hesitated. "It's respecting the diversity that we have in our society", Clinton intoned.

Democrat and former Governor of Virginia Terry McAuliffe also poured cold water on Mrs Clinton joining the 2020 race, telling U.S. television broadcaster MSNBC she will "never be in the ballot again".

"She's going to be out helping candidates".

Matt Schlapp, chairman of the American Conservative Union and former political director for President George W. Bush, said he believes Mrs. Clinton "is clearly making a play". "That's what this new Democratic Party is about". He replied: "So far, I like them all". We have confused everybody in the world, including ourselves.

Mr. Merrill said of Mrs. Clinton, "she said she would decide who to support, not whether to run".

Her longtime advisor Philippe Reines told The Hill: "She is more likely to win Powerball".

Hillary Clinton is poised to take on presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump in November. Last time she lost in the presidential election Donald Trump, the presidential candidate of the Republican party. She has surely noticed that no one Democratic candidate appears to have yet broken out. Anything is possible as the former Secretary of State seemingly left the door open to another run.

Social media tore the joke apart, noting that donning a Halloween costume is "the only way" Clinton would ever be president.

"Well, I'd like to be president", she said at the taping Friday in front of a live audience. "I think it would be pretty damn clear if she was".
