Since her embarrassing loss to Donald Trump in this year’s presidential election, Hillary Clinton has largely avoided public appearances in favor of lurking in the woods behind her New York mansion—apart from that one time she surfaced to give Katy Perry an award.
Hillary is about to brave the public spotlight once again. New York magazine reports that Hillary will suffer one final humiliation later this month, when she will join nominal husband Bill Clinton in the audience at Donald Trump’s inauguration ceremony. As a candidate, Trump famously called Hillary a “corrupt” “bigot,” and promised to imprison her if elected.
Former presidents Jimmy Carter and George W. Bush are also expected to attend the swearing-in ceremony on the steps of the Capitol building. According to New York magazine, Hillary’s decision to attend the inauguration came after weeks of discussions with advisers, and was made “out of a sense of duty and respect for the American democratic process.”
According to some account, Hillary Clinton may be “keeping her options open” in case she wants to run for president again in 2020. She has run for president on two occasion since 2008, accumulating a record of zero wins and two losses during that time.
