Is it possible that Hillary Rodham Clinton missed her calling? She has been a constant source of entertainment and characterization for the press, television, and media for years.
In fact, for probably as long as she’s been in politics. We do know, in her defense, that she was very successful in the legal realms as an attorney.
As a politician though, her public life has been talked about and viewed as some type of reality show complete with sex, scandal, and surprises!
This most recent report, that captured Hillary speaking out about Trump (no shock there), is a shining example of her potential as a comedian. As the story reported, she had apparently heard some of those laughable and obviously bogus reports about President Trump’s supposed plan to “bomb” hurricanes.
As effectively as President Trump has used Twitter to promote his plans, his ideas, and his goals are just as ineffectively as Hillary has used this social media medium. Her latest tweet is just another example of this as she said regarding those aforementioned plans, “we should not nuke hurricanes… .”
Really Hillary, are you sure? Because most of us thought it sounded like a good idea. Okay, that’s not true at all. The truth is, even for those of us who don’t have the backstory, that nobody really thought he was serious. Because he wasn’t.
Somehow, however, Hillary didn’t catch that. Then she (as she often does) ran with it. All the way to Twitter and then for the whole world to see! It would be so much easier to believe that she was just joking too – but she wasn’t.
If you aren’t caught up, here is the context of the President’s comments about dealing with hurricanes.
The source of this fake news report was none other than that longstanding and reputable reporting organization Axios. Since 2017 (yes, that’s correct!) they have been diligently reporting and informing people about the news that matters.
Now based on this ultra-reliable and reputable news organization, they reported that the President asked about the possibility of bombing hurricanes to disrupt them. According to this news outlet founded by former members of that infamous group, Politico, a senior admin official did not confirm or deny but said: “We don’t comment on private discussions that the president may or may not have had with his national security team.”
But didn’t they?
In any event, that was all that Ms. Clinton needed and she was off to the races. Despite the questionable source, the hazy details and the President’s strong denial of ever having that conversation, she continued undaunted.
President Trump could not have been more clear in his rebuttal Tweet saying: “The story by Axios that President Trump wanted to blow up large hurricanes with nuclear weapons prior to reaching shore is ridiculous. “I never said this. Just more FAKE NEWS!”
Now, back to that question at the onset, because it seems that Hillary Rodham Clinton has a knack of drawing attention and a flair for being funny. What if she really did miss her calling, how funny would she have been as a stand-up comedian? How much more successful would she be as a comedic actor than a politician?
Do you remember, not so long ago, when she was the Democrats one shining hope? When she was being viewed as the first woman President and the leader who would take the Democrats to the mountaintop? And here is the most frightening aspect of that entire reality, she actually was that close to becoming the next President of the United States!
Yeah, think about that scenario for a moment.
No, the story isn’t true and yes it is “fake news” just as the President claimed. What isn’t fabricated or fake, however, is Ms. Clinton’s continuing saga with social media and her deep-rooted hatred of our Commander and Chief. Or her natural ability to make us all laugh – except for that one time when she ran for President – and nearly won!
