Hillary: Hot!

Hillary: Hot!

When Beyoncé  sang “got hot sauce in my bag, swag” white people asked black folks “is this a thing?” It is. When Hillary Clinton revealed the bottle of hot sauce in her own handbag, she was accused of pandering for the black vote. She wasn’t. She’s carried hot sauce around for years, and had 100 different brands in the White House when she was First Lady.  What brand is she packin’ these days? Ninja Squirrel Hot Sauce, from Whole Foods.

President Hillary Will Release the Files — the X-Files

President Hillary Will Release the Files -- the X-Files

“When Jimmy Kimmel asked Hillary Clinton in a late-night TV interview about U.F.O.s, she quickly corrected his terminology.

‘You know, there’s a new name,’ Mrs. Clinton said in the March appearance. ‘It’s unexplained aerial phenomenon,’ she said. ‘U.A.P. That’s the latest nomenclature.’

Known for her grasp of policy, Mrs. Clinton has spoken at length in her presidential campaign on topics as diverse as Alzheimer’s research and military tensions in the South China Sea. But it is her unusual knowledge about extraterrestrials that has struck a small but committed cohort of voters.

Mrs. Clinton has vowed that barring any threats to national security, she would open up government files on the subject, a shift from President Obama, who typically dismisses the topic as a joke. Her position has elated U.F.O. enthusiasts, who have declared Mrs. Clinton the first ‘E.T. candidate.’”

Hillary Will Release All Secret Files -- on UFOs
Clinton 2016 Campaign Chairman John Podesta told a Las Vegas interviewer that he has urged Hillary Clinton to declassify all government UFO files if elected, and the candidate is considering it. In fact, back in January Secretary Clinton herself told a New Hampshire reporter that Mr. Podesta “has made me personally pledge we are going to get the information out. One way or another. Maybe we could have, like, a task force to go to Area 51.” Extraterrestrials: we want them accounted for.

Why do otherwise serious politicos care about UFO sightings? The most-viewed declassified FBI document is the “Hottel Memo” about flying saucers.

Hillary's Happenin' Heartland Road Trip
Former limo-riding senator and jet-setting Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton kicked off her campaign by riding from Westchester to Iowa in a Chevy van. It was a gas-pumping, burrito-bowl-eating road trip. Now Ms. Clinton’s “Scooby Van‘” is cruising the Hawkeye State, chased by stray dogs and reporters, as she campaigns for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination.
