Oh, thank goodness.
I was beginning to think that Hillary Clinton had finally gone back into the woods, to use that shopworn idiom. Of course, there was that adulating Hulu documentary about her earlier in the year. That dropped on March 6, just before our country and the rest of the world was about to wade into much deeper waters.

After insinuating Democratic Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard was a pawn controlled by sinister forces, she had disappeared back into those woods — which is a good way to socially distance, I would assume.

Turning Point USA’s Charlie Kirk summed up the sentiment outside of the virtual room and the left, however:
