Here is something Bill Clinton can’t do: Shut his fat mouth. Even as the Pennsylvania people are finally voting, the former president continues to make an ass of himself, make Hillary look terrible and basically bring shame to the Democrats and the entire nation. Guess what he’s talking about, again? How Barack Obama is like that Jesse Jackson, that’s what!
Talking to WHYY’s Susan Phillips, Bill totally took the “race bait” and said of his Jesse-Obama comparisons, “I was stating a fact, and it’s still a fact.”
Then he said the comment was “used out of context and twisted for political purposes by the Obama campaign,” meaning, “They were outraged by the dumb race-baiting comment, as were voters.”
With the interview done but the tape still rolling, Bill added one more charmer to his list of charming statements in the 2008 campaign: “I don’t think I should take any shit from anybody on that, do you?”
