Well there’s a differentiator you don’t normally see a political candidate, especially a presidential candidate, invoking. Apparently Hillary Clinton wants us all to know that regularly communes with the spirit of Eleanor Roosevelt. Well, either that or Bill’s getting back at her for something or other by claiming that she speaks to the dead on a regular basis…and theoretically the dead answer her too.
Yeah, nothing says, “I’m fit to be POTUS” like claiming you regularly commune with dead people. 😯
“A special thanks to the members of the Roosevelt family who are here,” Clinton said, at the park, located on Roosevelt Island. “And the one who is not, Eleanor, who made sure that the four freedoms were included in the preamble to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948.”
“I know that because, as all of you famously learned when I served as president, my wife, now the secretary of State, was known to commune with Eleanor on a regular basis,” he said. “And so she called me last night on her way home from Peru to remind me to say that. That Eleanor had talked to her and reminded her that I should say that.”
But let’s leave the truth, falsehood, or appropriateness of Hillary’s purported mediumship aside for a nonce. Perhaps more telling of Hillary’s character and qualifications is which dead person she’s talking to so often – Eleanor Roosevelt.
So what we have is an alleged lesbian former First Lady who was largely estranged from her husband due to his infidelity, ran a “Shadow Presidency,” and never showed much love for- or loyalty to America communing with a a dead alleged lesbian former First Lady who was largely estranged from her husband due to his infidelity, ran a “Shadow Presidency,” and never showed much love for- or loyalty to America.
Yeah, those are some “lovely” qualifications…
