They say timing is everything in comedy and politics, and the timing of a cryptic tweet from Hillary Clinton has certainly raised some eyebrows.
The White House announced Thursday that President Biden, double vaxxed and twice boosted, tested positive for COVID-19 and was experiencing mild symptoms, and shortly thereafter Clinton tweeted a photo of herself from 1992 standing in front of the Clinton/Gore campaign plane.
“On the move, 1992,” the caption read.
On the move, 1992.

Somewhat ironically, given the media reaction when former President Donald Trump contracted COVID-19, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said Thursday that it doesn’t matter where President Biden picked up the virus from.
There are few politicos in America who truly believe Biden will be the Democratic nominee in 2024. Be it approval ratings threatening to chart new territory when it comes to how low they may plummet, or cognitive issues that are becoming almost impossible to ignore, Biden is not seen as a winning ticket — more and more, the odds of him completing his first term grow iffy, and this concern was made worse this week when the president declared that he had cancer. The remarkable admission was dismissed as a flub, just the latest gaffe from a man prone to gaffes, but it has people doing a double take.
Interestingly, despite her insistence earlier this year that she was not running again, former Clinton advisor Dick Morris penned an op-ed for Newsmax claiming Clinton is preparing to make a 2024 bid for the White House, citing Biden’s “quickly declining mental abilities, coupled with an economy spiraling out of control.”
“It will be one of the great political re-matches of all time,” Morris wrote, assuming the GOP nominee. “Hillary Clinton will run again for president in 2024 to stop Donald Trump.”
“It is clear to me that Hillary’s recent spate of media interviews, as well as opinion pieces penned by long-time Clinton cronies touting her as Joe Biden’s successor — are a prelude to her announcement she’s running,” he said.
Of course, Morris has a new book to sell, but the timing of Clinton’s tweet was highly suspect to many:
