I can has election now?
Hillary Clinton responded Thursday to Donald Trump’s latest bizarre and hostile speech with a crazy statement of her own in which she said the GOP nominee’s rhetoric had become so unbearable that she’s begun soothing herself by watching “cat GIFs.”
“There’s hardly any part of America that he has not targeted, it makes you want to turn off the news,” Clinton said in a statement released just hours after Trump’s latest broadside painted his campaign with delusions of grandeur and hurled insults at alleged victims of his own sexual assaults, reporters and “the Clinton machine.”
“It makes you want to unplug the Internet or just look at cat GIFs. Believe me, I get it,” Clinton said. “In the last few weeks I’ve watched a lot of cats do a lot of weird and interesting things.”
“But we have a job to do and it’ll be good for people and for cats,” added the normally serious Clinton.
The Democratic nominee didn’t explicitly mention the Daily News cover that called out Trump, using cat emojis, for boasting he could grab women “by the p—y” because he was so famous, but she did blast her opponent over the disgusting remarks.
Earlier in the statement, she wrote how “the whole world, the whole world has heard Trump brag about how he mistreats women and the disturbing stories just keep coming but it’s more than just the way he degrades women, as horrible as that is.”
“He has attacked immigrants , African Americans, Latinos, people with disabilities, POWs, Muslims, and … our military, which he’s called a disaster,” she wrote.
Her unusual statement came just hours after Trump gave one of the most damning speeches of his hate-filled campaign, taking aim with renewed anger at the women who had come forward in recent days with allegations that Trump himself had assaulted them.
He also appeared to employ unprecedentedly delusional visions of the grandiosity with which he sees his own campaign, painting his bid as a “journey to heaven” that marked a “a crossroads in the history of our civilization that will determine whether or not we the people reclaim control over our government.”
“I take all of these slings and arrows for you. I take them for our movement, so that we can have our country back. Our great civilization, here in America and across the civilized world, has come upon a moment of reckoning,” he said.
