Mean old Hillary Clinton went to Africa’s Democratic Republic of the Congo today to discuss god knows what, current giraffe prices? Because it’s Africa?? And while she was taking questions in Kinshasa, some curious “Congolese university student” had the gall to “ask her for her husband’s thinking on an international financial matter.” But instead of just laughing it off with a “Ha ha, you don’t respect women in your country, which is why you have a rape epidemic,” Hillary Clinton murdered the student!

“You want me to tell you what my husband thinks?” she replied incredulously when the male student asked her what “Mr. Clinton” thought of World Bank concerns about a multi-billion-dollar Chinese loan offer to the Congo.

“My husband is not secretary of state, I am,” an obviously annoyed Clinton said sharply. “If you want my opinion, I will tell you my opinion. I am not going to be channeling my husband.”

The question was left unanswered as the moderator of the event quickly moved on.

Seems like someone wasn’t briefed on this issue!

    God, please let her just go ahead and keep this on the record, rather than apologizing like a great big sissy later on.

  • ManchuCandidate

    Ouch. I guess she also answered the follow up question: “So Hils, how’s things between you and Bill?”

  • orange

    I would love to be channeling some PUMAs on this one.

    “RAWWWR!”

    Like furries w/ a vag.

  • norbizness

    The hard-working indigenous white people of Pennsyltucky wouldn’t have asked her such a brazen question.

  • Darkness

    Come on Hillary, some sensitivity to cultural differences is required. Some peoples treat women as chattel. You must be used to that from your republican colleagues by NOW.

  • RoscoePColtraine

    “I am not going to be channeling my husband.”

    Is ‘channeling’ what the kids are calling it these days?

  • hobospacejunkie

    Smart move by Hillz. Let Geithner & the other adolescents in the administration piss off the Chinese. She’s got better things to do.

  • snideinplainsight

    It would be funny if this became a meme – if Joe Gibbs got asked for Mr. Clinton’s opinion during a presser, if Mrs. Obama got asked at a gardening outing, if Colbert got asked what Mr. Clinton thought about mayonnaise on hamburgers, say. Like “Save Ferris” – everyone just looking for Mr. Clinton’s opinion everywhere.

  • Hedley Lamar

    She’s just smartin’ from Bill’s successful rescue of the tourist/journos in DPRK. She still begrudges him every time he gets wood.

  • Joshua Norton

    Hey,the punk was asking for it. That palooka wuz lucky she didn’t mash a grapefruit in his face.

    Ya don’t know from nothing. See?

  • UncleTom

    Translation: I’m the one wearing the pants (or pantsuit) in this this relationship now. Bill lost that privlege 10 years ago when he kept dropping trou for that rubenesque intern.

    [re=382311]RoscoePColtraine[/re]: So that channel’s closed, then?

  • magic titty

    [re=382312]mattbolt[/re]: Jesus. I shouldn’t have laughed at all of those separately.

    But you forgot: “Did Hillary Go Ape, In Africa??”

  • Pizzuti

    To be honest, I think that’s kind of a cool answer to give. And she put it nicely.

  • My choice. My Wonkette.

    This was a more politically correct answer than saying, “Well, Bill and the World Bank think you should just fucking die before you take money from the Chinese. We’re your masters.”

    “We’re your masters” also seems to be the attitude of Sec. State Ms. Wal-Mart. Good thing you’re a piss poor country, Congo, or we’d have to civilize your backwards ways with an invasion.

  • shadowMark

    [re=382311]RoscoePColtraine[/re]: “Channeling” is what living people do for dead people. Hillary let down her guard and now we know that Bill died at some point and was replaced by a Bill-look-alike. Billy Shears Clinton!

  • chascates

    And don’t call her ‘Mrs.’ either; it’s Madame Secretary to you!

    Looks like someone’s a little upset over the fact that a certain Ex-President went to North Korea and did some diplomating!

  • Better American Than You

    Diplomacy is sooooo over-rated. It’s International Affairs that interest me (and Mark Sanford).

    [re=382321]magic titty[/re]: “Did Hillary Go Ape, In Africa??”

    amazing.

  • JadedDIssonance

    She should have apologized and then returned to her Arkansas Kitchen, where the dirt floor awaits. But it feels so good between the toes!

  • bitchincamaro

    The poor student didn’t even get to ask his follow-up question, “Was it difficult to get Mr. Clinton’s permission for your trip to Africa?”

  • zenferret

    [re=382314]snideinplainsight[/re]: It would be weird to ask Joe Gibbs about Clinton. What does Clinton know about NASCAR or football anyway?

  • Buzz Feedback

    SHe gots to start taking Sinbad on these trips.

  • DoctorCulturae

    One must note another notorious pants suit-wearer Kim Jong Il knew what benefits would accrue to him, including knowing it would tick off SOS Clinton for this very reason.

    And SIWWookies: Might there be a Nate Silver-like calendar set up so one could chart monthly progress and prepare for aberrations?

  • Airborne Toxic Event

    Sucks that she’s not President.

  • snideinplainsight

    [re=382351]zenferret[/re]: Sorry I meant Maurice, he’s the cute one. [screams with delight, flings underwear onstage]

  • naveed

    Maybe she’s an honorary man now? Mr. Sec State no matter the actual gender?

  • Native of SL UT

    She should have kicked the young man in the nuts and told him “Bill thinks I’m a bitch. Want to know what else Bill thinks?”

  • travellabyrinth

    Hillary channels Bill? Have fun, but use a condom. In Africa.

  • Bearbloke

    [re=382315]Hedley Lamar[/re]: Harry Shearer (AKA Derek Smalls from Spinal Tap) addressed this very issue in his weekly radio show (about 20 minutes in, I think) podcast from Santa Monica, CA, USA:

  • horned_viper

    Go Hillz. I’d be pissed too – go ask Bill yourself if you care about his opinion so much. She’s not that kind of secretary. It’s secretary with a mutherfukin capital S!

  • trickyrick

    I, too, wish people would stop asking Hillary what Bill thinks. It is teh suck. If someone kept asking me that question about my significant other, I would get annoyed too.

    I loved that she laughed at Boltons statement about North Korea, too-just cold laughed at him. Hillary got some cajones of steel now.

  • Extemporanus

    The translator was apparently the same dude who turned that Grandma Obama interview into Birther bait. The student actually asked what Barack thought of the deal, not Bill.

  • liquiddaddy

    [re=382396]Native of SL UT[/re]: LOL

  • Sophia

    You go, Hillary. Maybe the question was set up…

  • miquonranger03

    It’s obvious why she didn’t say what Bill’s opinion was. Just listen to Faux News and they tell you why! So nice of them! He was TOO BUSY SEXUALLY ABUSING THE JOURNALISTS WHO HAD BEEN TAKEN PRISONER THAT HE WAS RESCUING! Duh! He was so busy trying to grab some prisoner tits that he had no time for banks or stuff like that. Also, he’s a Nazi, apparently.

  • Kingbee

    You see, my dear, this Congolese student Prince is the heir to an account set up by his Great Grand Uncle, King Wanga Kubongoleze, Third Grand Sitoombo of the Shakalaka People. Due to the corruption of the present government of the Republic of the Congo, the Prince is unable to access his account directly. However, if Hillary could provide Bill’s bank account number, Social Security Number, and PIN number, the Prince would be able to arrange for the bulk of his money to be transferred into Bill’s account. It won’t work to transfer it into Hillary’s account, because she has a “kuntomambo” between her legs, which makes her “juju” to the Congolese banking community. That’s why.

  • prophet1195

    She should’ve done like the Bush Family and called in an air strike on the university.

  • SlipperyDick

    Hillary’s just a bit testy ’cause her nuts are aching from the boner she got threatening Africa.

  • Guppy06

    [re=382427]Extemporanus[/re]: Ah yes, it’s Barry that Ms. Clinton should be “channeling.”

  • CollegeStudent

    [re=382311]RoscoePColtraine[/re]: It’s pretty obvious that Bill and Hillary haven’t channeled since sometime in the early 80s.

  • zhubajie

    Bill is still with a pair of grateful Koreans, so he’s thinking about important things, not Congolese investment scams.

    Good thing the moderator was on top of things. Someone else in line was going to ask for her chocolate chip cookie recipe.

  • Kingbee

    [re=382608]Jukesgrrl[/re]: Or ask her to wash his shirts.

    To be completely fair to Hillary, it is awfully hot in Africa, plus it’s much harder to find male prostitutes there.

  • Barry White Zombie

    [re=382330]SayItWithWookies[/re]: Hillary is 61. I think the time of the month in question may have last occurred when she still lived the white house.

  • LoweredPeninsula

    To be honest, this stuff is so refreshing, to me. I wish Obama would let his guard down more than he does, especially with those bat-shit insane birthers and bat-shit insane health-care opponents.

    BTW, I love how the story wrapped up with the idea that this was a “mistranslation”. lol Because, Mr. Clinton and Mr. Obama roll sound almost the same to the untrained ear, right?

  • zenferret

    [re=382421]trickyrick[/re]: She really does. I think my reply would have been similar. She’s been asked about Bill constantly since she landed in Kenya and onwards.
