Twice-failed Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton gave up the game during an appearance on CNN.
During the interview, Clinton called for “formal deprogramming” of President Donald Trump’s supporters.
“You saw the number of Republicans who voted along with Democrats to keep the government open, so there’s clearly a common sense, sane part of the Republican caucus in the House.
“But I think they are intimidated.
“They oftentimes, you know, say and do things which they know better than to say or do, and it will require us defeating those most extreme measures and the people who promote them in order to try to get to some common ground where people can again work together.
“That’s the way it used to be.
“I mean, we had very strong partisans in both parties in the past and we had very bitter battles over all kinds of things: gun control, and climate change, and the economy, and taxes.
“But there wasn’t this little tail of extremism wagging the dog of the Republican Party as it is today, and sadly, so many of those extremists, those MAGA extremists, take their marching orders from Donald Trump, who has no credibility left by any measure.
“He’s only in it for himself.
“He’s now defending himself in civil actions and criminal actions, and when do they break with him?
“You know, because at some point, you know, maybe there needs to be a formal deprogramming of the cult members.
“But something needs to happen.”
NEW: Twice failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton calls Trump supporters “cult members” and says they need to be “formally deprogrammed.”
And she wonders why she lost in 2016.
