WATCH: Hillary Clinton Says “Trump Tried to Hijack Christianity and the Bible in Ways that Are Deeply Hypocritical”


She's ba-aack.

During an interview with Sky News, failed-presidential candidate Hillary Clinton accused Trump of attempting to "hijack Christianity."

Observers note that the word "hijack" itself is a loaded term, evoking the images of terrorists hijacking airplanes on 9/11.

Yet, this is the word that Clinton chose to describe the leader of the free world.

Hillary Clinton said:

They were totally peaceful protesters and what he was trying to do, as he often does, is to mischaracterize them and their behavior and their goals and lump them in with the tiny, tiny minority who took advantage of a tragic moment to loot and steal and vandalize — a tiny, tiny percentage — and he wanted to cast that over the millions of very thoughtful, non-violent peaceful protesters.

View her comments on Sky News below:

Conservatives are angry that Hillary Clinton is attempting to use Christianity to attack President Trump.

Clinton was previously accused of blaming the Bible and Christianity for the high crime rates in Germany.

Podesta emails appeared to suggest that Hillary was not fond of Catholicism and Christianity.

See this segment that previously aired on Fox News:

After staying silent for much of Trump's presidency, Hillary Clinton has become more vocal the closer the election gets.

The Independent has more details on Clinton's charges towards Trump, including the claim that he "can't tell you a single thing that's in it":

Hillary Clinton has accused Donald Trump of trying to "hijack" Christianity and the Bible, saying: "He can’t tell you a single thing that’s in it.”

She also predicted that if the election was held on this coming Tuesday, Democratic candidate Joe Biden would win.

It comes after Mr Trump's administration ordered law enforcement officers to disperse peaceful protesters near a church by force, for a photo opportunity with a Bible earlier this month.

Mrs Clinton said during an interview with Sky News’s Kay Burley: “That has been a pattern. He’s tried to hijack Christianity and the Bible in ways that are, you know, deeply hypocritical.

“And that was just another occasion and the outcry by religious leaders, I think, demonstrated clearly that nobody was being fooled.”

Mr Trump’s use of the Bible at the photoshoot has indeed been widely condemned, not least given that his administration used tear gas and rubber bullets to clear peaceful protesters away from the square in front of the church.

And as Ms Clinton pointed out, Mr Trump has previously struggled to articulate his specific feelings about the Bible.

In a 2015 interview with Bloomberg that was widely recirculated and parodied after the infamous photoshoot, Mr Trump was asked whether he was “an Old Testament guy or a New Testament guy”; he replied “Probably… equal. I think it’s just an incredible — the whole Bible is incredible.”

Some observers note the hypocrisy in Clinton's comments.

The Democratic party, for instance, has appeared to deride religion and religious freedom.

Former President Barack Obama referred to some voters in a negative light, saying that they cling to their guns and religion.

Aside from bashing President Trump, Hillray Clinton appeared to plant the seeds of doubt in case Joe Biden loses.

She has publicly encouraged Biden to address the threat of Russian interference.

Ummm... didn't we spend the last 3 years doing that?

Newsweek confirms Clinton's warning:

Former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has said Russian interference and disinformation will impact the upcoming election, urging Joe Biden's campaign to address the issue.

Clinton spoke of factors in the run up to her defeat in 2016, including former FBI Director James Comey's investigation of her email server ahead of the election, before stating "Russia played a role."

The former first lady said that while she does not think something like Comey's investigations will happen again, she believes issues with Russia are ongoing, suggesting that it could impact Biden's run as Democratic presidential nominee in the build up to November's election.

"Russian interference, manipulation of social media, disinformation, that is all happening one more time," Clinton, who had been the favorite according to the polls ahead of the 2016 vote, told Sky News' Kay Burley.

"And it's going to have to be addressed by the Biden campaign, and I hope by the press, to make sure people aren't fooled again."

Russian interference in the U.S. elections has been a pressing topic in recent years, with ex-Special Counsel Robert Mueller having conducted an investigation into the issue and alleged links between the nation and the Trump campaign ahead of the 2016 election.

This concluded that the Russian government did want a Trump victory and worked towards this outcome, though did not find the president's campaign had conspired with Russia in its efforts to interfere with the election.

Despite 3 years of investigations, there was never any proof of alleged Trump-Russia collusion.

In our divided political climate, random finger pointing from the Clinton camp is the last thing we need.
