Hillary Clinton Sure Is Funny

Expect this little skit to hurt Hillary Clinton in the minority-dominated New York Democrat primary next week. Clinton joined New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio on the stage of an annual Big Apple press dinner to crack a few political jokes in the boring, rehearsed presentation politicians do. But boring turned painful when de Blasio made what some are calling a racist joke.

Clinton had just walked onto the stage after de Blasio "rapped" (what he was doing shouldn't actually be called rapping) his endorsement of Clinton. "I just have to say, thanks for the endorsement, Bill. Took you long enough," Clinton jabbed.

"Sorry, Hillary, I was running on C.P. time," de Blasio replied in a clearly rehearsed line. The audience gasped. "C.P." time is short for "colored people" time, stereotyping blacks as being late.

"Cautious politician time," Clinton quipped, delivering the tripped-up punchline. "I've been there."

Clinton and deBlasio faced criticism left and right. "That's not — I don't like jokes like that, Bill," said Leslie Odom Jr., the black star of the Broadway hit "Hamilton," who was standing to the right of Clinton. Salon call the joke "cringeworthy." Townhall said it was "absolutely painful," and asserted, "It's only racist if Republicans do it."

Billy should have quickly revised and extended his remarks to say he was talking about "Cracker Person" time. The misunderstanding would have quickly been forgotten and all present would have had a hearty laugh. Those Dems, they're just so darn cute.

I would wager that this was carefully orchestrated to get national air time for HRC's flagging campaign from an event that would only draw yawns. The saying is correct, there is no bad publicity.

Of course, anything Democrats say or do is automatically P.C. If you don't believe it then you're either a racist or a misogynist!
