One of the most ridiculously outrageous yet totally unsurprising developments surrounding the first debate of the 2016 Presidential Election has been the Clinton Campaign’s preemptive excuse-making.
Heading into Monday’s debate, the Clinton Campaign’s longtime guerilla political operative, Robby Mook, claimed that the traditional debate format and role of the moderator should be changed for Hillary.
To follow that hawt gahbage up, Mook had this to say:
“So we’re saying this is a special circumstance, a special debate, and Hillary should be given some time to actually talk about what she wants to do to make a difference in people’s lives. She shouldn’t have to spend the whole debate correcting the record.”
*Fun sidenote: One of the Clintons’ Super PACs is literally called Correct The Record*
Because OF COURSE, Hillary Clinton is supposed to be POTUS. Months ago, we often spoke of how the Clinton Campaign handled the Democratic Primaries as if Hillary had some “right” to the presidency. This preemptive excuse epitomizes the Clintons’ unreal egos expectations to be handed the White House. Speaking of which:
Hillary demands an answer to why she isn’t 50-points ahead in the presidential race…
Hmmmm, I don’t know, Hillary, maybe it’s the fact that you have lied, peddled influence, and operated as a corrupt politician for multiple decades?
This is a fun reminder that Hillary is actually running for POTUS. Not only has the Clinton Campaign made Hillary unavailable for legitimate journalistic scrutiny and vetting, it now wants other people to debate for her too.
You would think if Clinton was “the most qualified” presidential candidate ever, as President Obama laughably declared, she could actually debate for herself and battle Trump with her own facts. If Hillary really was this political wonk, she not only should be preemptively making excuses, she shouldn’t even have to prepare to intensely for the deabate.
But no, Mook believes that we should change the historical format of presidential debates, because “Hillary”.
Seriously, this is a god damn presidential election! I mean, it’s called a fucking “debate” for a reason. How the fuck is it possible that a candidate believes the moderator should actively debate her opponent? Oh, I know… because, once again, the Clinton camp believes that Hillary is entitled to the presidency and that this election is simply a giant coronation ceremony.
FYI: Moderators are not human shields.
