Clintons Can’t Escape Trump at Event Celebrating 1992 Win

As Fleetwood Mac’s “Don’t Stop” blared over the speaker system, few Democrats in attendance agreed with the 1977 hit’s notion that “yesterday’s gone.”

Clintons Can’t Escape Trump at Event Celebrating 1992 Win

The Clintons cannot escape Donald Trump.

At an event in Arkansas celebrating the 25th anniversary of Bill Clinton’s 1992 presidential election win, the topic on everyone’s mind was Hillary Clinton’s 2016 loss, according to the New York Times’ Jonathan Martin.

The weekend gathering was supposed to be a reunion of the first Clinton for President campaign, an exercise in escapism from the recent unpleasantness, set to the familiar chords of Fleetwood Mac’s “Don’t Stop,” which opened and closed the event. But thinking about tomorrow is all the harder when you are locked in a nasty feud that continues unabated a year after Election Day.

Clinton hurled insults at the man who defeated her over a year ago.

“Apparently, my former opponent is obsessed with my speaking out,” she said, noting that Mr. Trump had just trained his Twitter fire on her earlier in the day. “Honestly, between tweeting and golfing, how does he get anything done?”

Clinton also blamed Russia for her a loss, a familiar refrain from the defeated former secretary of state in the year after her stunning loss:

She savaged Russia for “weaponizing information, stealing information,” but her critique plunged far deeper than the events of last year. She said democracy itself was under duress because avenues of communication with the electorate had been compromised.

“A democracy depends upon an informed citizenry that has access to accurate information,” Mrs. Clinton said to applause, imploring leaders to stand up to what she described as “partisan advocacy” masquerading as news.

Twenty-five years after Clinton used “Don’t Stop” to implore Americans, “Don’t ya look back,” it seems looking back is all the Clintons can do in 2017.
