Bill Clinton’s former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright has died. Ms. Albright served as President Bill Clinton’s Secretary of State from 1997 to 2001. She was the first US secretary of state.  She was 84 years old.

“We are heartbroken to announce that Dr. Madeleine K. Albright, the 64th Secretary of State and the first woman to hold that position, passed away earlier today,” her family said in a statement.

The statement from her family identifies the cause of her death as “cancer.”

While the far-left former Secretary of State stopped short of calling President Trump a fascist in 1 2018 interview with CPR News, she certainly eluded to it when asked about his presidency.

“His kind of instincts are that he does not understand the value of the institutions, specifically the press, by calling everything that he disagrees with fake news and saying ‘enemies of the people,’ that he does not respect the democratic institutions, i.e., the judiciary specifically. That he also has this tendency to really disrespect anybody that he disagrees with and not explain anything. And mostly that he is using the institutions to his own purpose and I think that he is not democratic. And he thinks he’s above the law and that’s the part that I think is essential to look at, especially given the kinds of things that are going on. But I have not called him a fascist.  I think there are, however, steps that make me very nervous.”
