You really need no further explanation as to why this is a laugh line.
Just know it was someone talking about Hillary Clinton.
That “someone” is President Obama, furiously trying to save Hillary’s sliding campaign amid the FBI re-opening her criminal investigation.
One of the millions of Americans who would never be convinced of such a construct would be Democrat Dave Schippers.
Breitbart contributor Aaron Klein recently interviewed Schippers, once chief investigative counsel for the House Judiciary Committee investigating Bill Clinton for impeachable offenses
Schippers says of Hillary, “We know that there were people who disappeared.”
“Today, I am still terrified of Hillary. Absolutely I am terrified. Because if she gets into office. In fact, I’ve told my wife, I said, ‘If Hillary gets elected, look for the FBI or somebody to come and pick me up the next day,’” Schippers said.
“And I think I’m the only one left. [Former Congressman] Henry Hyde is dead. [Independent Counsel Kenneth] Starr didn’t really hurt her. Yeah. I was scared when I was out there… I’ve been terrified ever since. Because things happen,” Schippers continued. “Things happen.”
At a rally in Ohio, President Obama passionately addressed an enthusiastic audience of Democrats with some rather bizarre escapes from reality.
“Hillary Clinton is consistently treated differently from any other candidate out there.”
This is the “woman card.” She’s not being investigated by the FBI for criminal mishandling of confidential and top secret documents. No, no, no. She’s the victim of a paternalistic society afraid of a woman in charge.
So, then, we should just pretend the liberal women on “The View” didn’t really mock Republican candidate Carly Fiorina.
“You know what Carly said which really made me laugh?” Michelle Collins asked. “She kicked off her thing saying, ‘You know, people tell me that I didn’t smile enough during the last debate.’”
“She looked demented! Her mouth did not downturn one time.”
“I wish it was a Halloween mask,” Joy Behar said. “I’d love that.”
So much for the myth that Republican men are the sole judges of women’s appearances.
In one way Hillary is, indeed treated differently than other candidates.
She is the only candidate with such a history of political corruption.
President Obama didn’t hold back:
“She doesn’t make things up on the spot.”
Apparently, he forgot about the many times she has. Like the times she would tout as her military credentials landing in Bosnia under sniper fire with no time for dignitaries or flowers. Then, the news video showed her landing in Bosnia, peacefully, greeted by dignitaries and given flowers.
Or often lying about classified emails on her illegal server.
Or claiming credit for creating the State Children’s Health Insurance Program.
“She understands the world.”
Except for the Iran nuclear deal, which she somehow believes keeps Iran from developing nuclear weapons, while it actually allows them to develop nukes.
What part of the “Reset” button that really read, “Overcharge” in Russian did she actually understand before being embarrassed by such a display of ignorance?
“And when things don’t go her way, she does not whine or complain or blame others…”
This is the moment in Obama’s speech when you can almost hear Hillary whining about “vast right-wing conspiracies” or “trailer trash bimbos” responsible for her husband’s multitude of sexual abuses and affairs.
Obama continued, “… or say everything’s rigged.”
Interesting he would use that particular word, as Hillary, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and Obama himself have all been captured for posterity on YouTube complaining about rigged elections and a rigged system.
In fact, those Democrats actually use the word, “rigged.”
It’s one thing to cheerlead the party and encourage the faithful to get out the vote.
It’s quite another to indelibly tie oneself to a legacy of hyping such a truly flawed individual as “the currently unindicted” Hillary Clinton.
In 2008, Obama told America, “She’ll say anything and change nothing.”
Today, he says she’s good, decent and accomplished.
For his own legacy, perhaps President Obama should stick with the truth he spoke in 2008.
