from Bill Still
lass=”” >Good afternoon. I’m still reporting on the Clintons.
It’s widely know that Hillary Clinton’s health is not good. She sometimes disappears for days off the campaign trail to rest, in hopes of being able to stumble across the finish line in one piece.
As a result, she is so highly scripted that her handlers are now even inserting cues for her fake emotions into her teleprompter.
Also notice the enthusiasm the crowd in the background is showing for her stirring message:
The online news site, The Hill, first pointed out last week:
“… [that it] was unclear whether Clinton intentionally read the word or whether “sigh” was actually a cue for her to sigh audibly.”
Clinton campaign spokesman Nick Merrill lashed out at The Hill’s assertion of some sort of fakeness being displayed by the former Secretary of State:
“ … I’m not sure your sleuthing that determined that it ‘appeared’ she was reading those words off the glass is reporting… [or just] … moronic.”
It’s obvious that she did, indeed, read the word off the teleprompter, and, for an instant, she got confused and was not sure what she was supposed to do, so – she did both.
I’m Still reporting from Washington. Good day.
