This Thanksgiving every American should be thankful Hillary Clinton is not president of the United States.
Most people probably proclaimed that exact sentiment las year when they went around the table with their families saying what they’re thankful, but still. There’s no law against being thankful for the same thing two years in a row.
More than likely, Clinton’s malfeasance would’ve come back to haunt her in a major way while in office and she – like her husband – would’ve been impeached.
Recently, Hillary made a disturbing statement on Hugh Hewitt’s radio program.
According to the twice-failed presidential candidate, racism is more ‘politically acceptable’ in Trump’s America.
From The Hill:
Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton said in an interview on Wednesday that it has become more “politically acceptable” to air racist views in the age of President Trump.
“I think there are people who are, unfortunately, kind of reverting back to rather virulent attitudes about race in part because I think that it’s become ‘politically acceptable,’ no longer politically correct to try to overcome our own feelings that often block us from seeing each other as fellow human beings,” Clinton said on the “Hugh Hewitt Show.”
“I think there has proven to be more white supremacists and white nationalists than I wish there were in our country, as we saw tragically in Charlottesville and other places,” she continued.
Go home, Hill. You’re drunk.
Clinton is defending her friend Sen. Al Franken (accused by multiple women of sexual harassment) as well as husband (and alleged sexual predator) Bill Clinton.
From New York Daily News:
The former secretary of state chatted with WABC radio host Rita Cosby in a sweeping Friday afternoon interview centered on sexual impropriety in politics, fielding questions about GOP Senate nominee Roy Moore, President Trump, her husband and Democratic Sen. Al Franken.
Clinton was quick to lump together Moore — who’s accused of sexually harassing and assaulting several teenagers — with Trump, who’s accused of sexually harassing more than a dozen women. She was also quick to extend an olive branch to Franken, her former Senate colleague, who’s accused of sexually harassing a female radio host in 2006.
“He’s a good friend of mine and I deeply regret what he did. There’s no excuse for his behavior but he has called for an investigation and apologized to the woman involved,” Clinton said. “Look at the contrast between Al Franken, accepting responsibility, apologizing, and Roy Moore and Donald Trump who have done neither.”
Oh, Hillary. Always quick to blame Republicans while refusing to acknowledge the proof before her eyes.
That’s Democrat politics 101.
She continued, “There’s a double standard: the Republicans deny, deny, deny and divert, divert, divert and they get away with it because the press is more concerned about someone who accepted responsibility than people who refuse to take responsibility.”
“That was a painful time not only in our marriage but in our country,” Clinton said, referring to the impeachment of her husband in 1999. “But it was investigated fully, it was addressed at the time, he was held accountable. That is very different than what people seem to be remembering from that period.”
In December of 2006, I embarked on my ninth USO Tour to entertain our troops, my eighth to the Middle East since the 9/11 attacks. My father served in Vietnam and my then-boyfriend (and now husband, Chris) is a pilot in the Air Force, so bringing a ‘little piece of home’ to servicemembers stationed far away from their families was both my passion and my privilege.
Also on the trip were country music artists Darryl Worley, Mark Wills, Keni Thomas, and some cheerleaders from the Dallas Cowboys. The headliner was comedian and now-senator, Al Franken.
Franken had written some skits for the show and brought props and costumes to go along with them. Like many USO shows before and since, the skits were full of sexual innuendo geared toward a young, male audience.
On the day of the show Franken and I were alone backstage going over our lines one last time. He said to me, “We need to rehearse the kiss.” I laughed and ignored him. Then he said it again. I said something like, ‘Relax Al, this isn’t SNL…we don’t need to rehearse the kiss.’
He continued to insist, and I was beginning to get uncomfortable.
He repeated that actors really need to rehearse everything and that we must practice the kiss. I said ‘OK’ so he would stop badgering me. We did the line leading up to the kiss and then he came at me, put his hand on the back of my head, mashed his lips against mine and aggressively stuck his tongue in my mouth.
I immediately pushed him away with both of my hands against his chest and told him if he ever did that to me again I wouldn’t be so nice about it the next time.
