CNN Editor Chris Cillizza’s tweet about Hillary Clinton having a “moment” was met with mockery from both sides of the aisle at the prospect of her making another presidential run.
Cillizza published an article on Tuesday titled “Hillary Clinton 2024 whispers have begun,” in which he reported that some political operatives — Republicans and Democrats alike — are predicting another Clinton run for the White House in 2024.
“Immediately after the Supreme Court’s monumental decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, conservative writer John Ellis took to the internet to make a provocative case: It was time for Hillary Clinton to make a (new) political comeback.” , wrote Cillizza.

“Ellis’s argument centers on ideas that 1) President Joe Biden, who will turn 82 shortly after the 2024 election, is simply too old to run again (Ellis is far from the only person to champion this cause) and 2) the Democratic Party the bench is not very strong,” he continued.
Cillizza went on to cite other commentators’ arguments for a Clinton 2024 campaign.
While Cillizza said the argument for Clinton running for president “should be viewed with some healthy skepticism,” he noted that “if Biden agreed to run,” that “would be something he would be hard for Clinton not to at least Watch.”
Both Republicans and Democrats have lambasted the idea of Clinton running again on Twitter.

Some specifically hit out at Cillizza for her focus on Clinton.
Rolling Stone editor Noah Shachtman tweeted, “dude runs this piece every two months,” with a link searching Cillizza’s Twitter feed for mentions of Clinton.
Freelance writer for The Week Joel Mathis tweeted, “Stop. Trying. Doing. Going for. Performing.”
“My man will post anything for content purposes,” said National Journal Hotline staff correspondent Matt Holt.
Sarah Jones, senior editor of New York Magazine, tweeted that “today is not the day to start taking Chris Cillizza’s political analysis seriously.”
John Walker, who writes for Vice and other left-leaning publications, tweeted, “Hillary Clinton could be dead and we’d still have troll headlines like ‘Insiders say now is the time to clone Hillary so the clone can operate in 2042 “”.
Conservatives also joked about the tweet.
Sen. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., tweeted, “Only way Democrats can get worse than Biden,” in response to the article.
“The best these guys can do is speculate that a 75-year-old Hillary who lost to Donald Trump is going to replace an 82-year-old Joe Biden in 2024 for reasons,” wrote Stephen Miller, editor-in-chief of The Spectator.
Tim Murtaugh, who served as the Trump campaign’s 2020 communications director, mockingly responded to the article: “Yes, please. #Hillary2024 Make it happen.”
