BILL CLINTON & PUSSY RIOT: Bill Gives a Warm Welcome to Russian Punk Band ‘Pussy Riot’

Obama and Bill sure have made the office of our Presidency a flippin’ joke, eh? BTW, Bill also defended Hillary’s receipt of foreign donations.

Former President Bill Clinton hit back at critics as he defended his foundation’s acceptance of foreign donations before warmly welcoming Russian female punk band Pussy Riot onstage.

Bill spoke during the Clinton Global Initiative University on Saturday in Florida, where he discussed the receipt of donations from foreign governments that were accepted while the former first lady served in the State Department and after she departed in early 2013.

He pointed to the track record of his global philanthropy as Hillary Rodham Clinton nears an announcement on a 2016 presidential campaign.

Later in the day, he was joined by musicians Maria Alekhina and Nadezdha Tolokonnikova who were detained in 2012 for staging a protest in one of Moscow’s largest cathedrals.

The women, who advocate for gender, LGBT and human rights, were convicted for extremism but were released several months short of their two-year sentence in December 2013.

They were a part of the eight annual conference that focuses on education, environment and climate change, peace and human rights, poverty alleviation and public health.

Bill told moderator Larry Wilmore of the cable channel Comedy Central: ‘My theory about all of this is disclose everything and then let people make their judgments.

‘I believe we have done a lot more good than harm and I believe this is a good thing.’
