Pandering politicians are almost a cliche, but Hillary Clinton can run with the best of them. Or is it worst of them?
Whatever the case, she is a nearly-perfect embodiment of greasy politician. I’d compare her to a used car salesman, but I wouldn’t want to defame them. She’s a chameleon. We all know it. (Even the Democrats seem to know, they just explain it away.)
It’s not just what she says, it’s even how she says it. We’ve got this breakdown of her evolving accent which changes back and forth as needed for different contexts. She has evolving positions (marriage for one example) that shift with public opinion rather than anchor themselves in any specific or definable principles. In 2008 she was against the redefining of marriage, and now she calls legislation permitting a priest not to wed Jim to Larry, an outrage.
Lies are very much second nature to her. She would have made an excellent student under some of history’s most notorious propagandists, who infamously used phrases like “Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it.” [Benghazi? Wiping an email server?]
So now she’s in Election mode and doing interviews. Recently, she did an interview in a show called “The Breakfast Club”. The show was hosted by two guys and a woman … all of whom are black.
At the beginning of the interview, they’re talking about how Hillary shouted “dominoes Motherf—er” after winning a round of dominoes. (No, she’s not pandering at all. I bet she plays dominoes every weekend and sounds just like that when she’s hanging with her pals out at Martha’s Vineyard.)
Towards the end of a lengthy interview, she got the softball question: “What’s something you always carry with you?”
“A grudge against Obama for winning 2008” might have been a plausible answer. That is not, however, the answer she gave. “Hot sauce.”
You really should watch the video just to see their reaction. They don’t believe her. Not at all.
One of the hosts, to his credit, did what the media typically fails to do. He (sort of) called her on it. Still looking shocked, he said to her, “I want you to know that people are going to see this and say that she’s pandering to black folks.”
Without missing a beat, Hillary looks back at him and asks “OK, is it working?”
I’d love for some media to call her out on this. Ask her to produce it from her purse. Interview wait staff from the formal functions she’s gone to. Ask her what brand of sauce she uses.
In keeping with today’s theme, I leave you with this video just for fun: “Hillary Clinton Lying For Thirteen Minutes Straight”. Feel free to share it to antagonize any Hillary voters you might know.
