Lanny Davis said Clinton’s run would be a catastrophe
Former President Bill Clinton’s past advisers have ‘begged’ with Hillary Clinton not to run for president in 2020 for her own ‘family’s sake’ according to reports.
Lanny Davis, the former special counsel to President Clinton, said on Wednesday that Hillary running for president in 2020 would be a catastrophe amid speculation that she is mulling throwing her hat once again in the ring.
“She has so much to give in public service, and for her sake and her family’s sake, she has so much to give in public service, I hope she doesn’t put herself through it again,” Davis said.
Davis is currently is a member of the legal team representing President Trump’s former attorney, Michael Cohen.
According to FoxNews: Former chief strategist for both Bill and Hillary Clinton’s election campaigns says that while Hillary Clinton may not be done with public service, the suggestion that she is mounting a secret White House run is ‘fantasy news.’
Davis noted that he does not know if Clinton is actually considering another run, which would be her third, but speculation has kicked up again since the New York Post reported over the weekend that she might be gearing up for another bid.

While most Democratic strategists doubt that Clinton would go through this again – with former Clinton campaign strategist Adrienne Elrod calling it “a pipe dream” – the former secretary of state’s ramped-up schedule of public appearances and her fundraising appeals in recent weeks have done little to temper the rumors.
Clinton has appeared at a number of high-profile events, such as ones for the Clinton Foundation and at Oxford University – and she is slated to appear alongside potential 2020 candidates Sens.
Continuing her strong criticism of Trump, Clinton has also started a fundraising drive for migrant children and their families being separated at the border.
With donations coming in via Twitter, Instagram and Facebook, the former first lady has raised more than $1.5 million with the funds going to several groups such as the American Civil Liberties Union, the Asylum Seeker Advocacy Project, the Florence Immigrant and Refugee Rights Project.
Thanks to everyone who gave what they could to make an impact for those children & families who need all of our support right now.https://t.co/gFtjV3sZRc https://t.co/Gw0q8UnCPs

Clinton is next scheduled to appear at the third annual Ozy Fest, which bills itself as “part music festival, part TED Talk, part food fair,” on June 21 and 22 in New York City’s Central Park.
Is Hillary Clinton to ‘hated’ to run?
Well, if Veteran actor James Wood’ recent attack on Hillary Clinton is anything to go by, then yes.
Wood called Clinton a “Drunken, Lying Hag” during a short but sweet outburst.
In what has been hailed as his “best ever tweet,” Woods made reference to Hillary’s alleged corruptions and a long-rumored drinking problem in response to talk of her running for US president (again) in 2020.
She’s officially running second in polls for the 2020 Democrat contenders behind “Creepy Unkle” Joe Biden.
