Besides, it’s so easy, and it’s fun.
My sister, among others, has adopted a “Who cares what Hillary Clinton does and says?” attitude as, I think, a defense mechanism. Because Clinton won’t slink off under a rock with her husband, however, it is important to flag Hillary’s periodic reminders of how vile she is just to shake in the faces of the dishonest Trump Deranged who keep pretending that the only reason anyone would vote for this President is because they liked him. I won’t waste my brains cells trying to decide whether she was and is a worse human being than Donald Trump—they are awful in very different ways—but together they make a quartet with Richard Nixon and Woodrow Wilson as the four worst people ever to run for President. This we must always remember, along with the fact that but for the Electoral College, we would have had her in the White House.
Thus it is that I feel Hillary’s latest outbursts are still worthy of note here.
1. Clinton said, when asked by a Hollywood Reporter journalist (They can’t call themselves “Hollywood Reporter reporters,” can they?) about whether she knew about Harvey Weinstein’s sexual predator habits,
“How could we have known? He raised money for me, for the Obamas, for Democrats in general. And that at the time was something that everybody thought made sense. And of course, if all of us had known what we know now, it would have affected our behavior.”
This is one more exhibition of how Hillary just isn’t a good liar (unlike Bill) after all her experience. Any good TV procedural will teach you that when someone answers a question with a question, they are probably lying.
How could she have known? Well for one thing, if anyone knew the tell-tale signs of a male sexual predator, it would be someone, like Hillary, who is married to one, but that aside, the evidence that she did know is very strong. Several Hollywood insiders have said that the Clinton camp knew. In 2017, the New York Times reported that two celebrity Clinton supporters, journalist Tina Brown and actress Lena Dunham, warned people close to Clinton about the quid pro quo Hollywood rapist.
Brown, the former feminist editor in chief of the New Yorker, Vanity Fair and the Daily Beast, as well as a Clinton donor, said that she told a member of Clinton’s inner circle about Weinstein way back in 2008. “I was hearing that Harvey’s sleaziness with women had escalated since I left Talk in 2002 and she was unwise to be so closely associated with him,” Brown said. Dunham recalled telling 2016 campaign deputy communications director Kristina Schake, “I just want to let you know that Harvey’s a rapist and this is going to come out at some point. I think it’s a really bad idea for him to host fundraisers and be involved because it’s an open secret in Hollywood that he has a problem with sexual assault.” Dunham, who sometimes served a Hillary surrogate, said Schake promised she would pass the message to campaign manager Robby Mook. Dunham says she gave a similar warning to campaign spokeswoman Adrienne Elrod.
Then there is journalist Ronan Farrow, who says that Clinton’s campaign attempted to pressure him when he first began investigating Weinstein at NBC in 2017, telling ABC News,
“Hillary Clinton had scheduled an interview while I was at the height of the Weinstein reporting, and her folks got in touch and said, ‘We hear you’re working on a big story,’ sounded very concerned, and tried to cancel that interview over the Weinstein stuff.”
Yes, yes, but how could Hillary have known?
2. In the same interview, Hillary went off on Bernie Sanders, confirming that she had said of him, “Nobody likes him, nobody wants to work with him…” She confirmed that she still believes that, and then said,
“It’s not only him, it’s the culture around him. It’s his leadership team. It’s his prominent supporters. It’s his online Bernie Bros… and their relentless attacks on lots of his competitors, particularly the women. And I really hope people are paying attention to that because it should be worrisome that he has permitted this culture — not only permitted, [he] seems to really be very much supporting it. And I don’t think we want to go down that road again where you campaign by insult and attack and maybe you try to get some distance from it, but you either don’t know what your campaign and supporters are doing or you’re just giving them a wink and you want them to go after Kamala [Harris] or after Elizabeth [Warren]. I think that that’s a pattern that people should take into account when they make their decisions…. Then this argument about whether or not or when he did or didn’t say that a woman couldn’t be elected, it’s part of a pattern. If it were a one-off, you might say, ‘OK, fine.’ But he said I was unqualified. I had a lot more experience than he did, and got a lot more done than he had, but that was his attack on me. I just think people need to pay attention because we want, hopefully, to elect a president who’s going to try to bring us together, and not either turn a blind eye, or actually reward the kind of insulting, attacking, demeaning, degrading behavior that we’ve seen from this current administration.”
- Clinton and her lackeys dealt from the bottom of the deck to beat Bernie in 2016, and yet he steadfastly refused to attack her on the record, and even in their debates never mentioned Clinton’s self-exposed Achilles Heel, her secret email server, or her influence peddling via the Clinton Foundation.
She should like him. She owes him.
- Clinton begins by insulting Sanders, and goes on to condemn those who “campaign by insult and attack” and says voters should not reward reward “insulting, attacking,’ and “demeaning.” Hypocrisy is so natural to Clinton that she doesn’t even notice when she engages in it during the same statement!
No, we must never forget how close this awful woman came to becoming President.
