In Hillary’s cringe-producing appearances over the past year and a half – since she lost the U.S. presidency in 2016 to Donald J. Trump – she has offered upward of 38 excuses to rationalize her loss, which Amanda Prestigiacomo has documented here exquisitely.
Among those excuses were sexism, the mainstream media, the electoral system, the Democratic National Committee, the Democrat Party, suburban women, stupid Americans, technology, deplorables, and, laughably, the claim that she was “too honest.”
You get the picture – a classic, clinical case of paranoia and delusional thinking.
Oops…did I say 38 excuses? Make that 39! At a Shared Value Leadership Summit in New York City this past April, Hillary told the audience that she lost because she was a capitalist!
Right…and Donald Trump won because he’s a Communist!
Oops…did I say 39 excuses? Here, lawyer and Fox News commentator Greg Jarrett lists 56 of Hillary’s excuses…and counting!
Among that Mt. Kilimanjaro of Hillary’s excuses, Jarrett lists racism, misogyny, James Comey, the FBI, the Russians, Vladimir Putin, WikiLeaks, Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Twitter, Netflix, Chief Justice John Roberts, and the Drudge Report.
You get the picture – a classic case of Hillary’s pathological inability to look in the mirror!
Actually, the genuinely pitiful and self-deluding Hillary is so blind to her own behavior, and so clueless about even the concept of accountability, that she has spent her entire adult life not seeing what is obvious to literally everyone in the world!
Specifically, people don’t like it when someone speaks one way and acts another. It is all well and good for this or that self-described feminist to talk about equality in the workplace, shared responsibility for raising children, and “woman power.” But everyone knows the following:
- That Hillary’s “workplace” experience was a direct result of her husband’s position, first, as Governor of Arkansas, and second as President of the United States.
- That their shared responsibility for raising their only child Chelsea fell largely to nannies.
- That the woman power thing meant nothing in the face of decades she spent tolerating her husband’s multiple affairs and humiliating abuse – while she vilified his victims!
Excuse No. 57 seems be that she was bullied in school…at least that’s the tale of woe she chose to tell a class of eighth graders when she gave the commencement speech at a tony San Francisco private school just a week ago.
Can excuse No. 58 be that Eleanor Roosevelt told her during one of Hillary’s famous séances that the election was rigged?
A SORDID HISTORY
Hill and Bill graduated from Yale Law School in 1973, married in 1975, and moved to Arkansas, where in pretty short order Bill won election as the Attorney General (1977-1979) and Governor of Arkansas (1979-1981 and 1983 to 1992).
During those years, Bill had a 12-year affair with singer and model Gennifer Flowers. Every day and every night of that affair, Bill was spitting in the face of his wife Hillary, the “human spittoon.”
A spittoon, by the way, is a receptacle for spit, largely obsolete today, except for the human variety, such as Hillary – the arch poster girl for literally more than four decades of non-stop abuse.
This is not an article about Bill Clinton’s testosterone levels or irresistible compulsion to seduce women other than his wife, but rather about why any woman – particularly his wife – would withstand almost half a century of wiping saliva off her face and pretending that it’s raindrops.
My personal observation is that Hillary somehow realized – probably as a young girl – that there was something about her, both her personality and her character that was strangely unlikeable, even repellent and alienating. And that realization led her to conclude – accurately – that she could never actualize her far-left goals on her own without significant help from powerful men.
In 1973, fresh out of law school, she depended on a powerful man, Jerome Zeifman, a lifelong Democrat, to appoint her to the prestigious position of investigator on the Watergate Committee to impeach or fire President Richard Nixon.
According to Zeifman, however, he had to fire Hillary for lack of ethics! “She was a liar, she was an unethical, dishonest lawyer [and] she conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality.”
THE SALIVA TSUNAMI
As a result, Zeifman spat in Hillary’s face…big time! But the very next year, she married Bill, ushering in a virtual lifetime of saliva!
Whatever Hillary claimed she was doing in Arkansas for women and children, it pales in comparison to the uncountable affairs her husband was having in plain sight, and the buckets of saliva she was wiping off her face every day and every night!
CNN, of all the leftist and Clinton-supporting TV outlets, cataloged these “alleged” affairs and “non-consensual encounters” in elaborate detail. The very short list of those affairs, both in the “Natural State” of Arkansas and in Washington, D.C., were:
- Gennifer Flowers: a 12-year affair.
- Dolly Kyle Browning: Clinton’s high school friend who reported off-and-on sexual encounters from the mid-1970s through January 1992.
- Elizabeth Ward Gracen: Miss America of 1982.
- Sally Perdue: Miss Arkansas of 1958.
- Juanita Broaddrick, R.N.: Arkansas nursing home administrator who accused Clinton of rape in 1978.
- Paula Jones, who said Clinton propositioned and exposed himself to her in 1991 – he settled her lawsuit for $850,000.
- Kathleen Willey (Democrat activist and White House volunteer who said that in 1993, Clinton grabbed and kissed her in the Oval Office’s private study.
- Monica Lewinsky: White House intern whose affair with Clinton led to his impeachment.
In each and every instance of these extramarital encounters – which occupied many, many hours of his days and nights – Bill Clinton was hawking large globs of saliva into Hillary’s face. As if that were not enough humiliation, a 1995 biography “contained irrefutable evidence from one of their most trusted friends, Betsey Wright, who had been his chief of staff for seven years when he was the governor of Arkansas,” that Arkansas state troopers helped to solicit women for Bill. Of course, the White House put pressure on Wright to deny her account and she issued a statement saying she had been “misinterpreted.” But the author of the book insisted that he had cleared all the quotes with her in advance.
More telling is that in every single instance of Bill’s purported affairs, what did Hillary do? She sided with her abuser and against his victims!
Was this dumb of Hillary? Pathetic? Cravenly political? Or, perversely, were Bill’s infidelities a turn-on for Hillary?
Indeed, one can speculate about motives, but some motives are crystal clear, as Kathy Shelton can tell you. In 1975, when she was 12 years old, according to journalist Bre Payton, Kathy was brutally raped by 41-year-old Thomas Alfred Taylor. Unfortunately for Kathy, Hillary represented Taylor and told the jury that young Kathy essentially asked to be raped.
According to reporter Alana Goodman, Hillary knew – and laughed about the fact – that Taylor was guilty at the time, but “used a legal technicality to plead her client, who faced 30 years to life in prison, down to a lesser charge.” She also laughed at the crime lab’s accidental destruction of DNA evidence that tied Taylor to the crime.
Some advocate for women and children! Even before Bill’s serial pattern of spitting in Hillary’s face, she herself was spitting in the face of a preteen rape victim!
NEW NAME FOR AN OLD PATHOLOGY
Women who spend their lives taking abuse from men – like Hillary has – are not a new phenomenon. All over the world, there are women in relationships with or married to men who spank them, beat them up, chain them, walk them around like dogs on leashes, and yes, spit on them.
Given Hillary’s lifetime of passively tolerating her husband’s non-stop, in-her-face spitting and her habit of blaming the women he pursued, I think it’s high time that the American Psychiatric Association considered including a new category in their bible of psychiatric disorders, the DSM – The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders – much like NPD (narcissistic personality disorder), or BPD (borderline personality disorder), or ASPD (anti-social personality disorder).
The new category might be called HSTD – Hillary’s Spit-Tolerating Disorder.
I could rest my case right here, but there might be another reason Hillary has long put up with an abusive husband.
THE ULTIMATE APHRODISIAC
Some women melt at the sight of an athlete. Others swoon at a guy who has M.D. or C.E.O. after his name. Yet others get stars in their eyes when they see a guy toting a big wad of cash.
But for other women, the biggest aphrodisiac of all is a guy they perceive as having power. Power in business, on Wall St., in philanthropy, in politics, in the mob. Guys who call the shots, who others genuflect before, who know what power is and how to use it.
I suspect that Hillary has always been a power junkie, and that she hoped her proximity to power would rub off on her.
But just like her cluelessness about losing the presidency to Donald J. Trump because of the 58-and-counting excuses she’s been spouting to anyone who will listen, she was equally clueless about winning the New York Senate seat because of the immense and genuine power and influence of Bill Clinton, and about becoming Secretary of State under Barack Obama because of the same immense and genuine power and influence of Bill Clinton.
What Hillary never “got” is that power is not heritable, not transferable, not something you get by osmosis just because it happens to be your particular fetish.
Perhaps the most pitiable thing about Hillary – other than the criminal indictment that is likely down the road – is her almost childlike belief that if she weathered all the saliva that her husband and other powerful men spat in her face, she would somehow inherit their power.
Can you imagine the massive vats of saliva Hillary would be receiving from dictators like Vladimir Putin (Russia) and Kim Jong-un (North Korea) and Recep Tayyip Erdogan (Turkey) and Bashar al-Assad (Syria) and Nicolás Madura (Venezuela) and Mahmoud Abbas (the PLO) if she were the leader of the free world?
This is a woman who will go down in history as the very embodiment of a spit receptacle – a veritable human spittoon. This is the woman who God, in his infinite wisdom and mercy, spared us from having as our president!
