So, if you had thought that with the merciful departure of Barack Obama we would see a return to the dignity of the office of President.
Don’t count your chickens quite yet.
If the Democrats have their way, the same lack of dignity will continue without interruption if Hillary Clinton were, Gott zol ophiten, to become the 45th President of the United States.
Last week, proving that if Barry will stoop so low, so will she, Hillary “Me Too!” Clinton lowered herself to be interviewed by GloZell Green.
So desperate to appear “with it” and “cool,” Hillary seems to be seeking out any flash-in-the-pan celebrity to goose her poll numbers with young people.
Look, you can slap green lipstick on a Granny, but it won’t make her hip.
Really, the only time the word “hip” will be used in a sentence with “Hillary Clinton” it will probably be in the context of discussing the danger of navigating an icy sidewalk when you’re an old, decrepit hag.
The one thing in GloZell’s favor is, at least she didn’t sexually abuse her younger sister like Hillary’s pal Lena Dunham.
Is there anything Hillary won’t do to pander for votes?
The truth is, when it comes to running for President there is such a thing as bad publicity.
And stooping to be interviewed by a lady known for her neon green lipstick and splashing around in a bathtub full of milk and cereal is what we on Planet Earth call “bad publicity.” Sure, it’s fine for some movie actor or television star. But for someone seeking the office of President?
Most Americans expect those running for President to appear, oh, what’s the word? Presidential.
Consider this, Hillary.
David Spade — comedian and Saturday Night Live alum — had this to say about the publicity-hungry Barack Obama just the other day:
“I criticized Obama because I thought, you know, a president should have a little more dignity than – I mean, I realize that Woodrow Wilson went on ‘Dancing with the Stars’ once, but what president’s doing reality shows? It just sounds weird to me, you know, it’s just too much. I think that, you know, Michelle Obama’s on ‘Ellen’ more than I am. I mean, what first lady – it’s just a new world, it’s just I’m not used to it. And they’re out … it seems a bit thirsty to me. That’s all. I think they’re gonna do fine, but they’re sort of plotting after the White House. Like, he’s on GQ?! I’m like, leave that to Bradley Cooper. You don’t need to go – the president, you’re above all of us, you’re above stars, you’re above everything. When he’s trying to get in the mix, like, I want to present at the MTV Awards – all right guy, relax, you got it.”
When even Hollywood comedians know that this obsession with popular culture and fame is not in keeping with the dignity of the office of President, imagine how most everyday Americans feel.
Now, to be fair, it isn’t that Hillary is a celebrity whore the way both Barack and Michelle are.
For her it is nothing but a desperate need to pander to every possible voting bloc in the country.
It’s why she speaks with a southern drawl when talking to blacks.
It’s why she gets all “hear me roar” when talking to women’s groups.
It’s why she seeks out Latino celebrities to try and make her look less like a white, upper crust, stand-offish, entitled one-percenter.
It’s why she wants to be photographed with Katie Perry, Lena Dunham and GloZell Green when trying to convince younger voters that she’s down with the cool stuff you young people dig.
So desperate is Hillary to win, she will lower herself in any way imaginable if she thinks it will help her gain the Presidency.
Even if she has to further damage the dignity of the very office to which she aspires.
So all these ridiculous attempts to “relate” to young voters come off as being frantic, grasping, and about as embarrassingly painful as watching a sixty-nine-year-old grandmother twerking on camera.
