James Woods, Donald Trump Jr. respond to suggestion of Hillary Clinton 2020 presidential run

On Saturday, the New York Post’s Michael Goodwin wondered if Hillary Clinton, the most evil person ever nominated to the White House by a major party, might make another run in 2020.

“Hillary Clinton is up to something,” Goodwin wrote.

It seems to us that Clinton is ALWAYS up to something…  Goodwin further noted:

Trending: This tweet from anti-gun demagogue David Hogg literally jumps the shark on gun control

Five times in the last month alone, she sent e-mails touting her super PAC’s role in combating President Trump. Most seized on headline events, such as the family-separation issue at the southern border.

Under the message line, “horrific,” she wrote June 18: “This is a moral and humanitarian crisis. Everyone of us who has ever held a child in their arms, and every human being with a sense of compassion and decency should be outraged.” She said she warned about Trump’s immigration policies during the 2016 campaign.

Three days later, she was back again, saying that her group, Onward Together, raised $1 million and would split it among organizations working to change border policy, including the American Civil Liberties Union and a gaggle of immigrant, refugee, Latino and women’s groups.

He later asked the $64,000 question: “Is she really going to make a third run for the White House?”

Good question.  He noted that she “was a terrible candidate” in 2016, adding that “her endless claims of victimhood are tiring rather than inspiring.”

Nevertheless, he suggested that she may be looking at another run and speculated as to how she sees things:

First, because there’s no clear front-runner for the nomination 18 months into Trump’s presidency, Clinton remains the closest thing to an incumbent. She’s also got numerous advantages, from name recognition to campaign experience to an off-the-shelf Cabinet, that could give her a head start.

Second, a crowded, diverse field diminishes the chances of anyone knocking her off. Recall how Trump outlasted 16 GOP rivals by having a committed core of supporters that grew as the field shrunk. Clinton could be in a similar position — unpopular among many, but also unbeatable by a single opponent.

Third, looking ahead to the 2020 primaries, she sees no reason to fear the favorite daughters and sons in key blue states. She would almost certainly beat Sen. Kamala Harris in California, Sen. Cory Booker in New Jersey and Gov. Andrew Cuomo in New York.

And please — forget Sanders and Joe Biden. Sanders is already 76 and Biden, at 75, has never been a viable candidate for president and still isn’t.

Fourth, money is not an issue. Some donors will resist Clinton at first, but any Dem nominee can count on all the money in the world to run against Trump.

Goodwin’s post prompted response from Donald Trump Jr. and actor James Woods:

Woods wasn’t finished:

“For now, I am convinced Clinton wants to go for it,” Goodwin said. “Doubters should recall the line about pols who get the presidential itch: There are only two cures — election or death.”

He concluded: “Besides, the third time could be the charm.”

Riiiiiight…
