Yesterday was a tumultuous day for our Democratic Presidential hopefuls. The Bernie Sanders campaign had campaign right-hand-man, Jeff Weaver, who inferred that Hillary Clinton's policies were largely responsible for the creation of ISIS, one of the more cringe-worthy moments. But the most embarrassing soundbite to win the day came from the same person who is supposed to be Hillary's best surrogate: her husband, President Bill Clinton. The speech turned out to be anything but constructive to her campaign. In case you haven't seen the footage from Philadelphia, click here.
The giggly bunch on the curvy couch brought on ex-Bush Press Secretary, Dana Perino to weigh in on what she thought of Bill Clinton's surrogacy efforts for Hillary. She, of course, thought it was great, because who needs to hear Black-on-Black crime is the same as Black Lives Matter more than these far left 'Marxists?' She thinks Bill's honesty is refreshing and she did the little both-siderist thing and compared his candidness to the Trump Campaign's similar 'appeal.'
Slate posted an article late yesterday urging Hillary to fire her husband as a surrogate, as he seems to only bring harm to her campaign(s).
At a time when Hillary Clinton is dependent on black voters and campaigning with mothers who’ve lost sons to police violence, Bill Clinton yoked her to his own discredited policies. He reminded everyone that, in defense of his bill, she’d once spoken about underage “superpredators,” language she has since apologized for. Then, Bill Clinton aped the maddening right-wing tendency to derail conversations about criminal justice abuses by invoking black-on-black crime. He might as well have said, “All lives matter!”
Any time the folks at Fox 'News' can get in a dig against those silly BLM protesters, they take the opportunity. Steve Doocy was incredulous at the fact that a site from the 'left' is excoriating Bill for his devotion to the 1994 Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act, which even Hillary agrees, has devasted many Black communities. Perino thinks he should keep on keeping on.
The group digresses into the favorability of the candidates, Trump and Cruz being slightly more unfavorable (69% and 59% respectively) than Hillary (55%), and if all the candidates are equally unlikable, people will likely vote along party lines. No mention of Sanders' favorability, which was rather remiss, as he's in better shape than Ted Cruz.
If Hillary receives a thumbs up from Dana Perino, odds are that her husband should warrant at least a timeout, and let things cool off for a bit. Perhaps the much more liberal positions Hillary has favored are making Bill a little nervous that her administration could equal or surpass the accomplishments of his years in the White House? Or, could it be that Bill may harbor a subconscious element of sabotage when it comes to his wife? Either way, someone needs to pull him back before he 'helps' her, just like he did during the 2008 campaign.
