It turns out that Hillary is still out there giving the public her two cents. This time, she conducted an interview and it did not go so well for her as she just seemed FLOORED by it. In particular, when she was questioned about our first lady Melania Trump.
The Guardian’s Decca Aitkenhead writes:
“I ask how [Clinton] interpreted the jacket the first lady wore to visit a child detention center, bearing the opaque and intriguing slogan: ‘I really don’t care, do u?’ Clinton slumps back in her chair, wide-eyed, arms spread, defeated by the mystery. ‘That, I have no idea. I have no idea. I can’t even … I don’t have any idea. I don’t know.’ Does she feel sorry for the first lady? ‘I don’t know. I honestly don’t know.’”
It was pretty revealing if you ask me. In fact, they gave a quote where she basically refuses to condemn some of the more unsavory actions of the alt-left:
Clinton said, “Give me a break! What is more uncivil and cruel than taking children away? It should be met with resolve and strength. And if some of that comes across as a little uncivil, well, children’s lives are at stake; their futures are at stake. That is that ridiculous concept of bothsideism.”
In the interview, she even reveals that she has plans to help people at the border… raising $1.5 million:
She tells me she has raised $1.5m in the days before we meet, to “flood the border with lawyers, interpreters, experienced social workers, psychologists. We just have to get as much expertise down there to force the federal government to give us everything.” It’s the kind of resource-focused, pragmatic response we would expect from someone with a reputation for technocratic efficiency, so I’m a bit taken aback to see tears fill her eyes.
But I’d perhaps argue that based on the speculation (perhaps unfounded?) that her foundation has kept large sums of money from various charities we should at least question how much of those funds are actually going to get there.
