Hillary Clinton, the twice-unsuccessful Democratic presidential candidate, has alleged that President Donald Trump employs psychological “projection” by attributing his own behaviors to others. Many Americans observe a tendency among Democrats to publicly accuse Republicans of actions they themselves regularly engage in, a behavior known as “projection.”

Ironically, Clinton, labeled an “election denier,” accuses Trump of projection, showcasing a clear example of this hypocritical phenomenon, as reported by the Inquisitr. In September, Clinton joined MSNBC host and former White House press secretary Jen Psaki for an interview, during which they discussed former President Trump, according to the Huffington Post.

“You know, the thing about [Trump] — and I’m not the only person who’s noticed this — is he engaged in what psychologists call projection,” Clinton said.

“So, whenever he accuses somebody else of doing something, it’s almost guaranteed he’s doing it himself or he’s already done it,” she added.

“Or whenever he denies thinking about doing something or doing it, it’s almost guaranteed he is thinking about it or he’s already done it.”

In her remarks, Clinton was addressing statements made by Trump during an interview with NBC News’ Kristen Welker. The discussion centered around persistent rumors that Trump might consider issuing a self-pardon if re-elected as president in 2024, as reported by HuffPost.

“I think it’s very unlikely,” Trump said.

“What, what did I do wrong?

“I didn’t do anything wrong.

“You mean because I challenge an election, they want to put me in jail?”

Trump is currently confronting numerous federal and state-level charges across four distinct politically charged criminal indictments. Some of these cases are slated for trial during the peak of his re-election campaign in the coming year. Given the legal timelines, it is anticipated that these cases will likely remain unresolved or be in the appeals phase after the 2024 election takes place.

“People said, ‘Would you like to pardon yourself?’” Trump told Welker.

“I had a couple of attorneys that said, ‘You can do it if you want.’

“I had some people that said, ‘It would look bad if you do it because I think it would look terrible.’”

“Let me just tell you,” Trump continued.

“I said, ‘The last thing I’d ever do is give myself a pardon,’” he added about conversations in early 2021 before he left office.

“I could have had a pardon done that would have saved me all of these lawyers and all of this — these fake charges, these Biden indictments.”

Clinton was skeptical of Trump’s assertion that he was “unlikely” to attempt a self-pardon if re-elected for the presidency in 2024, as reported by The Hill.

“I don’t believe him on anything,” she told Psaki in that September interview.

“Why should I start believing him on that?”

Regarding Clinton’s tendencies for “projection,” one might speculate whether she had contemplated issuing self-pardons had she won the 2016 election, and is now attributing similar intentions to Trump.
