Hillary Clinton Says of African-Americans, 'They All Look Alike'

The Five on Monday discussed Hillary Clinton's remark on Friday saying that she'd still "like to be president". She then paused and repeated "no".

Jarringly, Clinton had just delivered a "haughty speech" before she made her racist joke, as The Daily Wire noted.

"Yeah, I know they all look alike", said Clinton to laughter and applause from the audience.

But she and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, announced earlier this month that they are going to embark on a 13-city tour across the United States and Canada beginning later this year and continuing until May 2019.

Clinton sat down with Kara Swisher for the Recode Decode podcast over the weekend.

"Tweeps, simmer down", she tweeted.

Clinton had just finished arguing that what some call "political correctness" was "just politeness" that Democrats valued because they were all about diversity.

Clinton has become a more visible presence in recent weeks, increasing the number of her public appearances and raising money for Democrats across the country.

Another unnamed longtime confidante added: "She's not running".

"Because I'm hearing crickets right now after Hillary said it", Trump Jr. added. Like House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Clinton has been depicted as a villain in Republican campaign ads that attack Democratic candidates. "Mitt Romney is going to the Senate, that's where he's going".

If she does decide to run, though, Trippi added in his interview, she'll be the immediate front-runner, well ahead of anyone in the field, on name recognition alone - and she'll force Democrats to contend with her in primary states she won handily in 2016, and to tangle with the "superdelegate" system that nearly assuredly favors the well-connected Clinton.

"I know they all look alike", Clinton said nearly instinctively, perhaps making the viewer think the footage may have been doctored because, of course, what former Democratic presidential nominee who was overwhelmingly supported by Black voters would ever say such a thing; especially in public? "I'm not even going to even think about it till we get through this November 6 election about what's going to happen after that".

The president commented on the potential 2020 field during an interview with Fox News host Laura Ingraham. 'And I don't think it's politically correct to say, we value that'. "We may have as many as 15, 20 candidates".

"But I feel confident in saying I think Hillary is never going to be on the ballot again".
