He says Donald Trump's appeal is to angry, white men, but no white man is angrier than Bill Clinton. And Russia may be near the top of his list of grievances.
WASHINGTON, December 19, 2016 — During an interview with The Bedford-Pound Ridge Record Review, a weekly newspaper near the Clintons’ retirement home in Chappaqua, former President Bill Clinton said that President-Elect Donald J. Trump “doesn’t know much” other than “how to get angry, white men to vote for him.”
The angry, white Chappaqua male added, one would “need to have a single-digit IQ not to recognize what was going on” regarding Russian cyber attacks on the Clinton campaign and the DNC. CIA leaks suggest—and Democrats widely believe—that Russian intelligence services released embarrassing emails that showed the Democratic Party rigged its candidate selection process, and that drew attention to Mrs. Clinton’s pay-for-play deals.
It allegedly did this to tilt the election to Donald Trump.
Among the embarrassing revelations was that Russia gained one-fifth of America’s uranium reserves shortly after Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s angry white husband received $500,000 from a Russian bank for a single speech.
According to the New York Times, “Among the agencies that eventually signed off [on the uranium deal] was the State Department, then headed by Mr. Clinton’s wife, Hillary Rodham Clinton.”
If there is one angry, white male the media can get behind, it’s Bill Clinton. He and his angry white spouse thought the Russians were their partners. Madam Secretary had “presented [Russian Foreign Minister] Lavrov with a ‘reset’ button in 2009,” a gesture “meant to symbolize a new day of diplomacy between the two nations,” according to the Washington Times.
Soon after, Russia annexed the Crimea and gave support to rebel elements in Ukraine, where Russian-backed separatists shot down Malaysian Airlines Flight 17, killing its 298 passengers and crew.
In April, CNN reported that “two Russian fighter jets flew within 30 feet of the USS Donald Cook … the Russian action could have resulted in jets being shot down.”
Hillary Clinton’s reset with Russia, not to mention the Kremlin’s payoffs to her family and its foundation, clearly backfired.
A week before the presidential election, Abigail Tracy of Vanity Fair wondered, “Is Donald Trump a Manchurian Candidate?” Since then, not a day has gone by without a flurry of news stories from angry and predominantly white newsrooms claiming Russia swung the U.S. election to Trump.
Outgoing Democratic Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid—an angry white male in his own right—dashed off an angry letter accusing FBI Director James Comey of suppressing “explosive information about close ties and coordination between Donald Trump, his top advisors, and the Russian government.”
The Democratic Party’s feminist icon and her angry, white male of a husband got snookered by a nation famous for its chess players.
But the holiday season is a time even angry, white Clintons should count their blessings.
The FBI may have investigated Hillary for her illegal handing of classified government information, but they recommended that the Justice Department look the other way and not seek an indictment from a federal grand jury.
That’s a better deal than was given General David Petraeus, against whom FBI and Justice Department prosecutors recommended felony charges for allegedly providing classified information to his biographer.
There is an old Russian proverb that should reduce the ire of angry, white male Bill Clinton:
“Little thieves are hanged, but great ones escape.”
Cheer up Bill. You and your wife won’t have to pay for your crimes. So, have a merry Christmas and celebrate with a delicious White Russian.Click here for reuse options!
