Hillary Clinton mocks Trump for mentioning her EIGHT times at his campaign launch saying: ‘I didn’t stay up late last night watching InfoWars.’
- Former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton compared Trump rallies to an episode of InfoWars
- When referencing Trump’s 2020 campaign launch Tuesday night Clinton said, ‘thankfully I didn’t stay up late last night watching InfoWars…’
Hillary Clinton likened President Donald Trump’s Tuesday night rally to an episode of InfoWars, which is hosted by far-right conspiracy theorist Alex Jones.
The former Secretary of State said she could handle the attacks from Trump, which persisted during his 2020 campaign kickoff event from Orlando, Florida on Tuesday night, even though she is no longer his opponent.
Clinton made her comments regarding the president’s remarks in response to former Tallahassee Governor Andrew Gillum calling out Trump for mentioning Clinton multiple times during his launch.
‘You must be EXHAUSTED!’ Gillum tweeted to Clinton Tuesday night. ‘Cause you’ve been running through @realDonaldTrump small ind for a LONG time.’

Former Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum jested that the former presidential candidate must be ‘exhausted’ from running through Trump’s mind, in reference to his mention of her at his rally
Clinton said she could handle the heat, but said she didn’t watch the rally. ‘[T]hankfully I didn’t stay up late last night watching InfoWards,’ she tweeted
Gillum was the Democrat nominee in Florida’s gubernatorial race in the 2018 midterm elections, he was beat by Trump-backed Republican Ron DeSantis.
‘I can handle it. Blessed with stamina.’ Clinton posted back Wednesday afternoon. ‘And thankfully I didn’t stay up late last night watching InfoWars…’
Jones, who runs the live-streamed show as well as hosts, is an over-the-top figure that often yells to his viewers about the perils of the Democratic Party.
From the filled Amway Center in the swing state Trump won, the president made mention of his 2016 Democratic adversary eight times, but barely mentioned any of the Democrats he could be up against in the next presidential elections.
The usually fired up Trump was uncharacteristically tame during his 2020 ‘Announcement Day’ rally, which was attended by upwards of 20,000 supporters and occurred almost exactly four years to the day when he announced he was running in 2016.
He made one non noteworthy mention of former Vice President Joe Biden in reference to him supporting a bad deal with China during his time as former President Barack Obama’s No. 2.
During his rally in Orlando, Florida, where he officially announced he is running for reelection in 2020, the president made mention of Clinton eight times, even though she is not running against him this time around
Trump, however, barely made mention of any of the 24 Democrats running to challenge him for his seat in 2020
The president also took one jab at Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders for touting what he calls a socialist form of health care for the U.S.
Clinton is not one of the 24 candidates running for the Democrat nomination to run for president in 2020.
During her run in 2016, she often faced verbal abuse from then-candidate Trump – and she would often awkwardly fumble with how to react to a candidate like Trump.
At the arena Tuesday night, Trump brought out some of his greatest hits against Clinton, including criticizing her use of a personal email server to conduct State Department business and her classification of Trump supporters as ‘deplorables.’
The crowd chanted, ‘Lock her up,’ another throwback to his 2016 rallies.
