Jill Stein, the Green Party candidate who many still believe helped tip the 2016 presidential election in Donald Trump’s favor over Hillary Clinton, is at it again.
As if President Biden doesn’t have enough to worry about given his approval numbers and recent polling showing him trailing Trump, Stein announced her entry into the 2024 presidential race while releasing a campaign video on Thursday announcing that she would seek the Green Party nomination again.
“The political system is broken. The two Wall Street parties are bought and paid for. Over 60 percent of us now say the bipartisan establishment has failed us, and we need a party that serves the people,” Stein said in a video. “I’m running for President to offer a better choice for the people.”

“Let’s put a pro-worker, anti-war, climate emergency agenda front and center in this election and on the ballot across the country,” Stein wrote in an extended thread shared on X. “People are tired of being thrown under the bus by wealthy elites & their bought politicians, tired of living paycheck to paycheck, struggling to pay the rent, locked into student debt & medical debt, with child poverty doubling, rising diseases of despair, & growing hopelessness.”
“The ruling parties that got us into this mess aren’t getting us out,” she said.
“Both parties are squandering trillions on the endless war machine, fueling conflict around the world while tens of millions here at home lack food, housing, and healthcare,” Stein added. “The two parties of war and Wall Street are bought and paid for. The Democrats have betrayed their promises for working people, youth and the climate again and again – while Republicans don’t even make such promises in the first place.”
The Stein announcement came the same day Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) announced that he would not be seeking reelection. Manchin’s decision has raised the possibility he could run for president under the No Label party.
Stein did not exactly receive a hero’s welcome on social media. Deranged left-wing lunatic Keith Olbermann led the charge in eviscerating the candidate for entering the race — and potentially helping elect Trump, should he be the Republican nominee.
Here’s a quick sampling of responses, as seen on X:
I see you are unencumbered by a conscience. You helped elect Trump. You will now try it again. Burn in hell – like you’ll condemn the planet to burn by electing him.

Here’s the thing: just like RFK Jr. and Cornel West, Jill Stein knows she has zero chance of becoming president. It’s all about money for these grifters. But more importantly, they all want Trump back in the WH. That’s their mission.

You’re part of the reason we’re in this mess.
Thanks for 2016!

You helped get us Donald Trump in 2016, are you trying to do the same again?
