After her stunning loss in the 2016 presidential election, it was no surprise that failed Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton sort of went into hiding, only being spotted occasionally like Bigfoot on lonely walks in the woods.
But according to the Independent Journal Review, Hillary is back and loaded for bear, having emerged from her self-imposed exile to presumably resume a position of leadership in the “resistance” to President Donald Trump.
The former senator and secretary of state spoke to the crowd at a Professional BusinessWomen of California conference on diversity in San Francisco, but all anyone is really talking about after her speech was the fashionable leather jacket she had apparently traded in her traditional pantsuits for.
“I am thrilled to be out of the woods and in the company of so many inspiring women…And there’s no place I’d rather be than here with you — other than the White House,” Clinton said, according to CNN.

“Obviously, the outcome of the election wasn’t the one I hoped for, worked for, but I will never stop speaking out for common sense benefits that will allow moms and dads to stay on the job,” she added in what was but one of many thinly veiled attacks on what would be Trump’s agenda — if Trump’s agenda were really what deluded liberals pretend to think it is.
Here she is complaining about the treatment of women (haven’t you missed this?):
But while Clinton took shot after shot at Trump in her return to the speaking circuit, culminating in her big takeaway message — “Resist, insist, persist, enlist” — (no word on who wrote that catchy phrase for her) all anybody seemed to focus on was the leather she was wearing, likening it to warrior’s armor as she prepared to lead the battle against Trump, according to Time.

@AprilDRyan Hillary Clinton is an unrepentant badass. ?Just look at her showing up in a leather jacket like a 21st century superhero.

Whether Clinton was truly going for the “badass” superhero or militant resistance leader ready to take on the patriarchy look remained unclear, but one thing is perfectly clear and absolutely unquestionable: Katniss Everdeen Ms. Hillary Clinton is not.
