In an interview with MSNBC's Rachel Maddow Wednesday night, former Senator, Secretary of State, and the 2016 Democratic nominee for President Hillary Clinton hypothetically asked China for President Donald Trump's tax returns.

Secretary Clinton did so to demonstrate the severity of Trump publicly asking Russia for Clinton's emails during a 2016 presidential debate.


Watch below:

Clinton said to Maddow:

"Imagine, Rachel, that you had one of the Democratic nominees for 2020 on your show, and that person said...'since Russia is clearly backing Republicans, why don't we ask China to back us?'...And not only that, but 'China, if you're listening, why don't you get Trump's tax returns? I'm sure our media would richly reward you.'"

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was not a fan. While talking to reporters, Sanders criticized Clinton for her comments.

Watch below:

Sanders said:

"I think it's hypocrisy at its best," Sanders said before repeating a false claim that the Obama administration took no steps against Russian meddling in the 2016 election. "Honestly, I'm baffled by it and it's truly astonishing comments from Secretary Clinton."

People immediately pointed out that Sanders's boss literally did the hypothetical thing she clutched her pearls at Clinton for.

Not today, Sarah.

Since the disco era of the 70s, the Village People have been a mainstay on dance floors, in arenas, and virtually every other gathering.

You'd be hard-pressed to find a person who doesn't know the YMCA dance or the chorus to Macho Man.

Even President Donald Trump has used their songs in his rallies—most recently on his visit to India, where over 100,000 people watched the President enter to Macho Man, much to the glee of his supporters.

As the coronavirus pandemic spreads through Asia, the Middle East, and Europe, concerns are growing that President Donald Trump's administration isn't doing enough to prepare for the virus coming to the United States.

Trump's Health and Human Services department was criticized this week for only requesting $2.5 billion in emergency aid—a sum that lawmakers feared wouldn't cover the supplies and services needed to contain the virus.

President Donald Trump's constant Twitter commentary about the Roger Stone case has made an already chaotic, years-long proceeding into an even greater circus.

Trump's former campaign advisor Roger Stone was convicted by a jury of his peers on numerous felony charges, including lying to Congress and obstructing justice. The Justice Department took the nearly unprecedented step of overriding its own prosecutors' sentencing recommendation after Trump tweeted in his former advisor's defense.

All four prosecutors resigned as a result. Stone was sentenced to three years and four months in prison.
