OBSCENE: How Hillary Wanted To Make SURE Hurricane Matthew Didn’t ‘Go To Waste’

As the deadliest hurricane was preparing to decimate Florida’s eastern coast Hillary wanted to buy Weather Channel TV ads to get their vote, according to Washington Times, reporting. With millions of Americans living and potentially being devastated by Hurricane Matthew’s 120 to 140 mph winds, Clinton was prepared to take advantage of them not assist them. Was this typical insensitivity out of touch Clinton theatrics? In a word: YES!

To say that this takes remarkable hubris to believe that Americans living and taking every precaution against the destructive hurricane forces that approached, would take the time to watch or care about a Hillary Clinton commercial is incredibly insensitive.

Can you imagine that with homes and even communities being ripped apart by Category 3 and 4 winds, you would be willing to take a minute or even 30 seconds to listen to a Clinton attack ad while worrying about what necessary emergency actions to take? Clinton believed so.

Anyone that has been through a tornado or a hurricane and have seen families and loved ones decimated because a family member, neighbor or friend lost their lives because of a violent storm realizes that Hillary was tone deaf to even propose this.

It is not even relevant that she succumbed to political pressure and has now withdrew her intention to purchase political commercial air time on the Weather Channel. She wanted to maximize her opportunist goal at any cost, even if it potentially cost a Weather Channel viewer their or their family’s safety.

What does she care? When the violent storms went through Baton Rouge, Louisiana in August, leaving 10,000 stranded while 20,000 had to be rescued she avoided visiting those who lost homes, family members. But if she could have gotten her political ads on the Weather Channel, she certainly would have given the storm survivors lots of political spin but not political help to assist them in their hour of need.

One can imagine that she was only following President Obama’s lead, since he refused to visit the grief-stricken and now homeless survivors of the storm. It was the GOP presidential nominee who visited the storm destroyed area and brought food, supplies and even toys for the youth. That was true Christian charity that he and running mate Indiana Governor Mike Pence displayed. Hillary, on the other hand could not be bothered except to send her regards courtesy of a tweet.

So it should not surprise that Clinton’s only regard for the Floridians is to be on the receiving in of the 29 electoral votes in this battleground state. If Republicans had not voiced their indignation to this callousness she was displaying, she would have gone on with her designs. According to the Washington Times, the Clinton campaign backed away from their opportunistic and insensitive five-day $63,000 ad buy on The Weather Channel before it began to air.

Clinton spokesman Jesse Ferguson claimed, “Earlier in the week we made changes to our TV ad reservations across hundreds of stations in several battleground states including Florida.” He added. “Less than 1 percent of those changes included The Weather Channel.” After the criticism they requested that stations in Florida delay the ads until after the massive storm. How very charitable of them,

The plain and simple reality is that the Clinton campaign got caught and nothing short of an admission that their conduct was “unredeemable” to borrow her word, should satisfy Florida voters. Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus, agrees and tweeted, “Pulling these ads after getting caught won’t cut it. @HillaryClinton should apologize for using the storm for votes.”
