I wrote earlier about ‘Insincerity as an art form’, and if anything, Hillary Clinton’s antics in yesterday’s third debate only served to prove that point again.
I get that people don’t see her as a naturally warm, compassionate person.
I understand that when she isn’t smiling, this sort of thing gets written: Facial analysis: How Hillary Clinton’s Resting B—h Face could be swaying voters
I also understand that she’s trying to make it seem like everything out of Donald Trump’s mouth is meaningless drivel.
However, in watching the debate, I was completely ‘creeped out’ (to say the least) to this reaction: SICK! Watch Hillary Clinton Laugh When Trump Mentions Gays Being Tossed Off Buildings.
First off, if this had been (almost) anybody else, the media circus would have savaged them terribly by now, and would demand their head, so to speak. But this morning, from the major news sources, there’s nary a peep. Even in this Daily Mail post dealing specifically with Clinton’s continual weird smiles, there is no mention of some of the most inappropriate times that they came up.
Secondly, if Hillary wanted to make people think that she’s a warm person, laughing about people being persecuted and slaughtered in countries from which the Clinton Foundation has accepted lots of money certainly isn’t the way to accomplish this. However, if one is to believe the words from the media today, Donald Trump is the one who really ‘slipped up’ by suggesting that there is malpractice afoot in US elections.
(Then again, for those paying attention this was all predictable.)
