Video: The HRC Squirrel welcomes Hillary Clinton at book tour stop

posted at 4:01 pm on June 14, 2014 by Jazz Shaw

Here’s something fun for the weekend. It’s quickly become clear that Hillary Clinton’s widely touted book tour has been swept up in unraveling current events and turned into what Investor’s Business Daily described as nothing less than disastrous. But at a recent stop on the campus of George Washington University, the RNC sent along a new sort of supporter to greet her. Wearing a shirt which read, “Another Clinton in the White House is nuts,” the crowd was treated to the debut of the HRC Squirrel.

The squirrel’s spokesman issued a brief statement following the rally.

The media has given Hillary $50 million worth of free media this week without being offered the chance for a Republican response. So we are making sure everyone knows that Hillary has no accomplishments as Secretary of State by having a squirrel hand out fact sheets and bumper stickers, because we all know another Clinton in the White House is nuts! Maybe now the media will get the message.”– Raffi Williams, spokesman for the HRC squirrel

The Squirrel is now up on Twitter in case you want to catch up with him on the campaign (and book) trail.

Meanwhile, on the Ready For Hillary bus tour

ReadyForHillary

“Obviously the bus isn’t ready” says a guy walking past as Ready for Hillary staffers crawl under bus try and fix it

An hour after Hillary Clinton finished signing books at the Free Library of Philadelphia, a bus with her name and picture remained stuck on the street nearby. A hydraulically operated platform that raised and lowered the bus stopped working, and the team didn’t have a jack. The presence of the 37-and-a-half-foot Winnebago raised some questions. “Is she in there?” one passerby asked. It was natural to wonder. The former secretary of state’s iconic texting photograph is plastered on the back, and the bus says “Ready for Hillary” all over it.

The truth is, Clinton has never been on the bus, and she probably never will be. This is the Ready for Hillary PAC bus, and even though the gang has driven 10,000 miles, following Clinton wherever she goes, not one of them has even laid eyes on the possible presidential candidate. “I see the b-roll on the news, so I know she’s been [around],” says Seth Bringman, the PAC’s communications director.

Man… it’s got to be party time all the time on that bus. I wonder if the mini-bar is stocked?

The Hilldabeast `16 campaign is already an unmitigated DISASTER more than 2 years before Primary Season begins. Further proof that she is not going to be the nominee, much less President.

Frankly, I think all this is a farce anyway, a stunt to boost sales of her book. And even that’s failing. The local Books A Million has stacks of Hildabeast books on display (they hide conservative books) and they are already marked 35% off.

It give Shrillary a little credit if she hired someone to follow the squirrel in an Almond Joy costume with a sign that said “Sometimes you feel like a nut.”

If MoveOn or some other Lefty group had this same gag following Jeb Bush around, the usual subjects would think it brilliant performance art.

To be fair, Hillary’s cheeks are more like a chipmunk’s than a squirrels. They probably should have Alvin, Theodore and Simon following her around….

The book tour and rehabilitation tour for Hillary is going better than her term as SOS.

Hillary’s CV:

1. Eliminated and smeared over twenty women that my husband either forced himself on or raped.
2. Failed at getting health care reform passed.
3. Coined the term “Vast rightwing conspiracy”.
4. Stood by man after the Lewinsky cigar incident.
5. Was a carpet bagger senator that did not put one piece of legislation through.
6. Voted for all of Bush’s wars.
7. Got beat by a first term inexperienced black guy for the democrat presidential race.
8. Ran up $20 million in campaign debt.
9. Secretary of State:
A) Couldn’t translate the word “RESET” into Russian.
B) Assisted in plunging Egypt into political and economical chaos.
C) Assisted in plunging Libya into political and economical chaos.
D) Called Assad of Syria a “REFORMER.”
E) Added electric car chargers to several embassies around the world.
F) Created highest carbon footprint of an SOS.
G) Refused to call Boko Harem a terrorist organization
H) Misplaced $6 billion dollars.
I) Screwed up arms shipments to terrorists in Syria.
J) Refused to assist an ambassador and responsible for four American deaths.
K) Evolved on homo marriage.

Maybe I’m an easy sale, but I swear Juan actually believes the stuff that falls out of his mouth. Sometimes I just shake my head thinking he’s misguided and sometimes I have to pick my jaw up off of the floor. He’s not quite on the Beckel level. I swear Bob could be offended and deny it completely if you insinuated that the sun would come up tomorrow.

Just as long as the entire bus is padded. Multiple concussions have a cumulative effect.

I’m not sure this is the best line of attack for the GOPe. A goofy mascot that makes an argument which is applicable to Jeb Bush as well? Well, I guess they’re not really trying to beat the Democrats anyway. I always thought “COEXIST” was a lefty slogan, but the Republicans embrace it as well.

Nuts aint even close. Her “handlers” make sure any police escorts nearby are not in uniform and if they are they must stay out of her site. One time as Sec State her phone dropped a call and she threw a coffee cup at her driver like it was his fault. She was so angry.
Yup, crazy town.

A comment about Juan Williams. He may believe the left wing nonsense he spouts, but a couple of years ago he had a rational moment that cost him his job at NPR. He has devoted his every waking hour since that time to convincing liberals that he believes what he says. To them he’s a conservative, because he once said something mildly critical of this administration.

Juan is capable of seeing reality in areas that transcend politics, like the breakdown of the black nuclear family over the last 50 years. But as soon as politics are the primary focus, he is a reflexive water-carrier for Democrats.

But there is a “tell” for when Juan knows he is losing the argument: he raises his voice and talks over others’ comments.

If I were on a panel with him, the first time he interrupted I would request he not do that and note that I did not break into his time. The second time I would remind him I had already asked him once not to do that, and that if it happened again I would knock him out of his chair, and demand he acknowledge that we understood each other. And then follow through.

It would be worth the bribe I’d have to pay DC cops to get the charges dropped.
