Yes, it does seem that Hillary Clinton thinks the South will like her better if she puts on a fake Southern accent. And yes, she put one on while in South Carolina. It’d be laughable if it weren’t so cringe-worthy. Seriously, I physically winced. Then I threw up in my mouth a little.
Take a listen:
Now before you Hillary apologists start screaming that she isn’t really faking a Southern accent and that we’re just making things up, let me call your attention to a few lines:
“Bill and I are having the best time. I have to tell ya, he is just putty already.”
“And a little guy from Arkansas. I’ve said a lot. I said, you know, I’m not running for my husband’s third term, and I’m not running for Barrack Obama’s third term.”
“I love watching people redecorating their houses…”
“I don’t wanna…I-I gotta enough problems making sure I get nominated. I don’t wanna interfere…”
Listen to the way she draws out her words, the constant use of contractions. It’s sounds as forced as Liam Neeson’s ‘I’m American but kind of Irish’ schtick. Though I look forward to ‘Taken 9’.
Thing is, this isn’t her first time trying this crap either. She’s been caught before. Several times.
EXHIBIT B: A regular speech of hers for your inspection. Can you spot the difference?
Good lord, this is embarrassing.
