Twice failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton accused former president Donald Trump of “projection” during a recent interview on MSNBC.
The “pot calling the kettle black” springs to mind.
Hillary Clinton is the queen of projection, so it’s no surprise she is projecting her projection on Trump.
.@HillaryClinton tells @jrpsaki that Trump "engages in what psychologists call projection. So whenever he accuses somebody else of doing something, it’s almost guaranteed he’s doing it himself or he’s already done it." https://t.co/8QxeNwne2S— MSNBC (@MSNBC) September 23, 2023
FOX News reports:
“Former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton claimed that ex-President Donald Trump has been engaging in “projection” throughout his political career.
Clinton, who lost the presidency to Trump in 2016, made the remarks about the former president in a new interview with MSNBC weekend host Jen Psaki. It is set to air on MSNBC’s “Inside with Jen Psaki” on Sunday.
Prior to the interview’s premiere, Psaki shared a brief preview of the conversation she had with Clinton at the most recent Clinton Global Initiative conference this week.”
Former White House Press Secretary Clinton stated:
“He recently said that he is very unlikely – it would be very unlikely that he would attempt to pardon himself. Do you believe him?”
Amused, Clinton replied:
“I don’t believe him on anything. Why would I start believing him on that?”
Hillary then described what compels Trump to make such statements.
“You know the thing about him – and I’m not the only one person who’s noticed this – is he engages in what psychologists call projection.”
How can Clinton keep a straight face?

“This is like a triple-double of projection. Hillary’s projecting about Trump’s projection threatens to rip open a projection wormhole in the space-time continuum,” a further user noted.
