“In the spring of 1971, I met a girl,” Bill Clinton told the captivated audience at the Democratic National Convention the other night as he slowly began to share the story of his courtship of Hillary Rodham.
I couldn’t help wondering if he was going to stray and name Gennifer Flowers, Paula Jones or Monica Lewinsky.
Talk about photoshopping history. Bubba conveniently scrubbed all the dalliances that almost ruined his marriage — and his presidency.
Younger voters may not recall these sordid tales; older Democrats probably want to forget them. But we remember.
Americans knew Washington’s most famous political power couple was putting on a show for the cameras in an attempt to spin they had a loving, intact marriage after his Monica moments.
It still appears Bill and Hillary are married in name only.
So his cringeworthy speech the other night, gushing over his wife, gave even ultra liberal MSNBC host Rachel Maddow — a staunch Hillary supporter — the willies.
Maddow called Bill’s speech “shocking and weird.” The way Bill talked about Hillary’s blond hair, long flowery skirts and “touching her back” was off-putting, to say the least.
“It was a controversial way to start, honestly, talking about the girl, a girl, leading with this long story about him being attracted to an unnamed girl and thinking about whether he was starting something he couldn’t finish, building her whole political story, for the whole first half of the speech around her marriage to him,” Maddow said.
If Bill wanted to empower women, he should have stayed focused on his wife’s accomplishments throughout her decades-long career — if he could find any, that is.
Clearly, Bubba was trying to soften Hillary’s steely image in order to make his pantsuit-loving wife more relatable, feminine and likeable. Never mind she coldly left four Americans to die at the hands of terrorists in Benghazi. But I digress.
Results? Yesterday the LA Times released a new poll putting GOP rival Donald Trump up by 7 points nationwide over Hillary.
Voters aren’t stupid. The Clintons don’t deserve another four years in the White House. We’ve had enough of Bill and Hillary’s scandal-plagued reality show.
