VIA| Every time a Republican didn’t embrace President Barack Obama or his White House with unalloyed joy, they were accused of being a racist. However, when it’s Hillary or Bill Clinton opposing the Obamas, the press simply stayed silent.
Most of the mainstream media is continuing to do so after an email obtained by conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch proved that Hillary Clinton didn’t want to fly on the same plane as Michelle Obama.
According to a Judicial Watch press release, the document was part of “2,078 pages of documents revealing more instances of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton sending and receiving classified information via an unsecured email server.
“They also show Clinton’s daughter Chelsea and others involved with the Clinton Foundation receiving special favors from Huma Abedin, the former secretary’s deputy chief of staff,” the group said.
While that may have been the big reveal, the one email of interest in this case was Clinton’s discussion with Abedin over a July 2011 trip to the funeral of former first lady Betty Ford, according to the Washington Free Beacon.
“Looks like plane won’t be an issue,” Abedin wrote. “Also, looks like Michelle Obama also going.”
That’s when things took a turn…
“Is it ok (sic) that we and Mrs. O take two separate planes?” Clinton responded.
“I think it’s ok (sic). But let me see what kind of plane she’s taking,” Abedin said.
“I would rather have our own of course,” Clinton continued.
Now, I’d like to point out that on Wednesday, Clinton told a conference in California that it would be “really stupid” to throw out the Paris Agreement on climate change, according to Recode.
She said that “(f)or the United States to throw our lot in with the very, very small number of countries that have turned their backs on climate change, is not only a breach of an agreement … but part of what keeps us going is that America’s word is good and you stand with your prior administration, whether it was of your party or not.”
Now, here’s a woman who said she believes the Paris Agreement is sacrosanct because it protects the environment. Yet, what did she do when she may have had to fly on the same plane as Michelle Obama during her time as secretary of state? She demanded another one.
This says nothing of the fact that Clinton snubbed Michelle Obama by refusing to fly with her. If this were Donald Trump, we would be talking about the racist move that he made. In Clinton’s case, however, the email has mostly been let slide by the media, who doesn’t feel that it’s even worth covering.
Clinton is a hypocrite of a grand magnitude. She talks about the bigotry of Republicans and how they don’t care about global warming, yet she decides to fly to California on another jet than Michelle Obama. And the press is nowhere to be found.
The press may be willing to go to bat for her, but America realized just how hypocritical she was. That’s why she didn’t get elected.
