Hillary Clinton Says Trump Supporters In Need Of ‘Deprogramming’

In an interview conducted on CNN by Christiane Amanpour, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton indicated that some Trump supporters are in need of ‘deprogramming’. In the clip released late on Thursday of this week, Clinton said: “Maybe there needs to be a formal deprogramming of the cult members,” she said in reference to ‘MAGA cult Trump supporters’.


Clinton, who unsuccessfully ran for president against Donald Trump in 2016 also went as far as to state that: “At some point, there needs to be a backlash against the control that this small group of extremists have,” she told Amanpour. “And I don’t know who will lead that, but let’s hope whoever becomes the new Speaker will.”

Clinton indicated however, that Jim Jordan, who is currently the top GOP runner for the new Speaker of the House is one of the “principal ringleaders of the circus” in the GOP.


Congressman Byron Donalds posted on X (formerly known as Twitter) condemning Hillary Clinton for her comments on the CNN interview: “7 years ago, Hillary Clinton infamously labeled half of our country "deplorable" & "irredeemable." Last night on CNN, she called Republicans "extremists," a "cult" & called for the "formal deprograming" of Republicans across our country. This is unhinged behavior.”


Conservative activist and founder of Turning Point USA, Charlie Kirk also posted on X in response to Clinton’s comments: “Seven years ago it was a scandal for Hillary to just call Trump supporters Deplorables. Now, she says Trump supporters should be sent to Soviet-style indoctrination camps and the press doesn’t blink. Fifteen years ago closing Gitmo was a top left-wing issue. Now, they just want a thousand Gitmos, in America, for their political enemies instead of for terrorists. The left has become totalitarian with frightening speed.”


These comments from Hillary Clinton come after Newsweek published an article indicating that the FBI may be targeting Trump supporters as the 2024 election draws closer. According to Newsweek:

“The federal government believes that the threat of violence and major civil disturbances around the 2024 U.S. presidential election is so great that it has quietly created a new category of extremists that it seeks to track and counter: Donald Trump's army of MAGA followers.


The challenge for the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the primary federal agency charged with law enforcement, is to pursue and prevent what it calls domestic terrorism without direct reference to political parties or affiliations—even though the vast majority of its current "anti-government" investigations are of Trump supporters, according to classified data obtained by Newsweek.”

This has led to concerns from numerous conservatives that a witch-hunt for Trump-supporting conservatives is beginning.
