Understatement of the year: the Clintons are criminals. If you were to combine Hannibal Lecter, The Joker, and the notorious Hamburglar, you would still come up short of Bill and Hillary. Their latest scandal? A suspicious birthday gift…
The Clinton Foundation has confirmed it accepted a $1 million gift from Qatar while Hillary Clinton was U.S. secretary of state without informing the State Department, even though she had promised to let the agency review new or significantly increased support from foreign governments.
Qatari officials pledged the money in 2011 to mark the 65th birthday of Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton’s husband, and sought to meet the former U.S. president in person the following year to present him the check, according to an email from a foundation official to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign chairman, John Podesta. The email, among thousands hacked from Podesta’s account, was published last month by WikiLeaks.
Firstly, the painfully obvious. Nobody gives $1 million birthday gifts. Okay, wait, let’s be clearer. Nobody from Qatar gives 1 million dollars to Bill and Hillary Clinton for a birthday. If you’re lucky enough to know someone who would give you a million smackers… I hate you. But back to Hillary and Bill. Something is going to be expected in return. Specifically something political. It’s what we’d call a “quid pro quo.” And, judging from the Clinton’s past of trading favors with friends, it’s safe to say this is more of the same. They would have better luck convincing a guy to put his tallywhacker in a toaster. Maybe Carlos Danger.
Secondly, this is Qatar we’re talking about. As in Islamic Qatar. It’s funny that Hillary Clinton, so-called champion of women’s rights, would happily take money from an Islamic country. A country that jails rape victims. Yes, you heard that right. The same government that imprisons rape victims thinks highly of the Clintons. Highly enough to give seven-figure “gifts.” Then again, it’s not all that farfetched when you look at Bill Clinton’s past.
So, we can just add this one to the pile of Clinton scandals. A pile that’s higher than Snoop Dogg in Colorado. Bill and Hillary will likely make another call or give a “birthday gift” of their own and the whole thing will go away. Much like the four Americans who died in Benghazi. That is, unless the voters have something else to say on Tuesday.
Speaking of scandals…
