Hillary Clinton lost the 2008 Democratic primary for president to an upstart named Barack Obama.

Then she lost the 2016 general election to Republican Donald Trump.

And some of her supporters claim she will vie for the nomination in 2020.

But now you can see her agree with a supporter’s claim that she’s already the “real president.”

It was at a recent event with the late Eric Garner’s mother, Gwen Carr.

“This really is ‘just sad,'” said a post on the Twitter news aggregating site Twitchy.

Twitchy noted the reaction of Twitter user Angela Morabito: “Sad to say some people think the earth is flat or that chocolate milk comes from brown cows …. Like I know you want this to be true, but it never will be.”

The Twitchy post said: “And she’s even less of a president that Elizabeth Warren is Native America.”

Her thinking may be guided by supporters who still have refused to accept the results of the 2016 election.

A million people in 2016, through a Change.org petition, urged members of the Electoral College to go against voters and choose Clinton.

The petition declared, “There is no reason Trump should be president.”

To those who argue the election of Trump is “the people’s will,” the petition insisted otherwise, because Clinton “won the popular vote.”

The petition pointed out the U.S. Constitution establishes that the electors choose the president, and it criticized the 24 states that bind electors to the state’s popular vote, in some instances assessing a fine if the elector votes against his or her party.

While the U.S. Constitution does not require the electors to vote for a particular candidate, there have been only 157 so-called “faithless electors” in U.S. history who have gone against the wishes of their state’s voters, according to the nonprofit FairVote.
