Clinton ‘beholden to scumbags’

bill and hillary clintonDescribing the Clinton Global Initiative’s events as “creepy,” a journalist and onetime moderator for forums hosted by the foundation says there’s no doubt the Clintons sold access.

“I’ve spent a decent amount of time at the Clinton Global Initiative,” Davidson said during a podcast for Slate.

He continued:

And there is a real creepy vibe, to me, personally, at the Clinton Global Initiative.

It seems, to me, that it is all about buying access. It is incredibly expensive just to go to the thing … and there are sort-of these explicit ways in which you get access. You pay more money to get more access to political leaders and to really rich people and to big corporate leaders.

There’s this kinda creepy theatre that happens where you have the CEO of Coca-Cola or IBM or whatever or GE up there with President Clinton and they’re just bathing each other in love over how generous and wonderful they are and how much they care about the world and all these earnest people applauding and thrilled.

After concluding that “it really feels gross,” Davidson said his opinion of the organization hasn’t hurt his view of Clinton as a presidential candidate.

“I can’t wait to vote for her,” Davidson said. “If I had time I’d go move to Missouri or Ohio or somewhere so my vote could actually count.”
