(FreedomJournal.org)- Failed presidential candidate and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Tuesday that she is an Electoral College elector and is looking forward to vote for Joe Biden. The former first lady, who famously lost to Donald Trump in the 2016 election, said that she is one of the 538 electors and will play a role in choosing the next president of the United States.
Clinton made the comments during an episode of “Signal Boost” on SiriusXM. She discussed matters surrounding the election, including voting early.
“I was going to vote early, that was my current plan because New York has done it for the first time,” she said. “But the lines, even where I live, are two, three, four hours long. So I’m waiting for a break in the line so I can vote early or I’ll just take a bagged lunch and go vote on Election Day depending upon what I can get done,” Clinton explained.
The lines for voting are undoubtedly long. With the COVID pandemic, polling places require people to keep a distance from one another. Sanitation procedures also mean it takes longer to vote, which is why so many people have chosen to vote early.
Clinton also said on the show that she would be nervous on election day.
“I’m always nervous on election days, no matter whether I’m running or not, but obviously this year I’m incredibly focused on it,” she said. I’ll be calling my friends, I’ll be getting what information I can from people who are friends of mine or people in the Biden campaign, anybody that can tell me what they’re seeing happen to feed my anxiety.”
Then, she revealed that she is an Electoral College elector.
“I’m an elector in New York,” she said. “I’m sure I’ll get to vote for Joe and Kamala in New York. So that’s pretty exciting…I can’t wait.”
If New York were to flip Republican, somehow, then Hillary Clinton would be put in the awkward position of voting for Donald Trump and Mike Pence. Can you imagine?
Clinton also said that she doesn’t believe Donald Trump will win on November 3, saying he has caused “damage.”
By the way, has anybody else noticed the great irony of Clinton being an elector when she has previously called for an end to the Electoral College?
