Hillary Clinton's Halloween Costume Idea Is Both Shady and Hilarious

Hillary Clinton's Halloween Costume Idea Is Both Shady and Hilarious

Hillary Clinton brought her current book tour to Chicago Monday, and told a crowd that Russian interference in the presidential election is a "clear and present danger".

Clinton made the suggestion at a promotional event for her book, What Happened, which offers her personal take on her failed 2016 presidential election bid against Donald Trump.

But then a lightbulb went off. "I think I will maybe come as the president!"

“I have to start thinking about it, ” she said.

If Clinton were to dress up as the president for Halloween, she certainly would fit right in with conservatives' recent characterizations of her.

Earlier on Monday, Trump campaign associates Paul Manafort and Rick Gates were charged with a 12-count indictment as part of the investigation into possible connections between Trump's team and the Kremlin. During her interview, she was asked what she is going to be for Halloween. Mueller's focus is to determine whether collusion occurred in the campaign in an attempt to sway the election with Russia's help. Responding to Clinton, the president's eldest met her joke with a zinger of his own. "What we should be focusing on are the continued lies of the Clinton administration, the continued fallacies that they perpetuate", former Trump campaign manager Cory Lewandowski said on "Fox & Friends" after the indictment news broke.
