Hillary Clinton is back in the news for all the wrong reasons. First, she went to Europe and denounced their immigration policies blaming them for most of the problems Europe faces.
Shockingly, Hillary was finally right on an issue and if she had been on the right side of that issue in 2016 she may even be president.
But it is too late for Hillary save the mocking, of which she deserves a heaping share. Her second brush with the spotlight came when a Fox News reporter compared Hillary Clinton to herpes.
Fox News guest Anna Paulina apologized for comparing former first lady and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton to a sexually transmitted disease in a Thursday segment broadcast by the network.
In the clip, Paulina is introduced as the director of Hispanic engagement at a conservative organization. She is asked to comment on recent news surrounding Hillary Clinton, but she instead begins to talk about border security.
After directing a question to another guest, Leventhal expresses amazement that Clinton is still making national headlines two years after she lost the 2016 presidential election to Donald Trump.
“She won’t go away,” Paulina said with a sigh. “She’s like herpes.”
Leventhal immediately distances himself from the comment: “Um, okay. That’s news that we’re breaking here. Not appropriate.”
He later apologized to viewers for “the language that was used in the segment,” Fox News said in a statement.
Another host also apologized later: “We want to reiterate that we do not condone the language that Anna Paulina just displayed here, and we apologize to Secretary Clinton for that.” Arthel Neville said, according to a Fox News statement. “Fox News does not condone her sentiment.”
She apologized later tweeting: “Yesterday on Fox I was placed on the wrong segment & in the confusion made a brash and unprofessional joke. To Fox and those watching, I am deeply sorry.
My feeling simply is that Big Government creates dynasties like the Clintons that won’t go away & Americans are over it.”
Enter Juanita Broaddrick. From The Daily Caller:
Comparing former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to herpes was enough to get a Fox News guest dropped from her segment, but Juanita Broaddrick believes the comparison did not go far enough.
Citing The Daily Caller’s coverage of the segment, Broaddrick tweeted, “Not awkward at all. Hillary is worse than Herpes.”
