Hillary Rodham Clinton

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made a rare television appearance Monday morning, telling co-hosts on ABC's "The View" that America is "still in…a full constitutional crisis," and "a very dangerous continuing high level attack on the legitimacy of our government and the election of our president," thanks to Donald Trump.

Clinton, who won the popular vote in 2016 but lost the election via the Electoral College vote in 2016 has often been praised for being "right" about all the warnings she made about the Republican who sat in the White House for four years.

"You know, I think we not only came close to a full constitutional crisis, I think we're still in it," warned Clinton, who also served as a very powerful U.S. Senator and is a former First Lady.

"That gives me absolutely no satisfaction in saying this because I think we're in a very dangerous continuing high level attack on the legitimacy of our government and the election of our president. And obviously, our former president is not only behind it, he incited it, he encouraged it, and he continues to do so," she said, referring to Trump.

"And you have leaders of the Republican Party who have willingly going along as though they're members of a cult, not a political party but a cult, and they're continuing attacks on the election, their refusal refusal to say, 'You know what, we've counted these votes. It's over. We're gonna move on,' has sown so much doubt and then you combine it with the disinformation network known as Facebook, and you've got a volatile mix. So yeah, we are still in the midst of a concerted well funded effort to undermine American Democracy."

For far-right Rep. Lauren Boebert of Colorado, owning a gun-themed restaurant called Shooters Grill has been a major promotional tool among fellow MAGA Republicans and members of the National Rifle Association (NRA). But according to Daily Beast reporter Roger Sollenberger, Boebert’s promotional tool may be in trouble: Sollenberger reports that Boebert’s restaurant is “facing an uncertain” future now that the new landlord of the property she has been renting has announced that he won’t be renewing her lease.

In an article published by the Beast on June 23, Sollenberger describes the property’s new landlord as a “marijuana retailer.”

Publicly, former President Donald Trump is taking credit for the U.S. Supreme Court's overturning of Roe v. Wade and ultimately revoking women's right to legal abortions. But, behind closed doors, he reportedly is not thrilled about the ruling.

According to Rolling Stone, "privately, the former president is anxious about what the end of Roe, and the flood of extreme Republican state-level anti-abortion laws it will unleash, will mean for the GOP’s electoral prospects — and for his own."
