Racist? Hillary on Eric Holder, Cory Booker: ‘They all look alike’ — Video

Over the weekend, potential 2020 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton made a statement that would have gotten any Republican inundated with accusations of racism.

According to The Hill, Recode’s Kara Swisher asked Clinton during a Q&A session, “What do you think of Cory Booker … saying, ‘Kick them in the shins’?”

It was actually former Attorney General Eric Holder who made the statement, as we reported here.  Clinton corrected Swisher, but it was her follow-up statement which raised eyebrows.

“I know they all look alike,” she said, prompting laughter from the audience.

“No, they don’t,” Swisher said, adding: “Oh, well done.”

The Hill added:

Holder and Booker are both black men.

Clinton during the back-and-forth also said she believes “what’s often called political correctness is politeness.”

“It’s respecting the diversity that we have in our society,” she continued. “The Democratic Party is a much more diverse political party, attracting people who are African-American, Latino, LGBT … And I don’t think it’s politically correct to say, we value that.”

“I don’t want to go around insulting people, painting people with a broad brush,” she said. “That’s childish.”

Unless, of course, they happen to support Donald Trump — then they’re “deplorable.”

Naturally, her statement, which was seen as a “joke” by the mainstream media, didn’t sit too well with many.

No doubt…

Here’s video of her statement:

Of course, being a Democrat, Clinton — the most evil person ever nominated to the White House by a major party — will get a pass for this.
