Hillary staged Iowa coffee shop talk, what about Chipotle?

Hillary staged Iowa coffee shop talk, what about Chipotle?

Probably nothing, move along.

Via Drudge, The Daily Mail reports to the surprise of no one who has followed the Clintons, that Hillary’s coffee shop talk in Iowa was staged:

Hillary Clinton’s astroturf candidacy is in full swing in Iowa.

Her Tuesday morning visit to a coffee shop in LeClaire, Iowa was staged from beginning to end, according to Austin Bird, one of the men pictured sitting at the table with Mrs. Clinton.

Bird told Daily Mail Online that campaign staffer Troy Price called and asked him and two other young people to meet him Tuesday morning at a restaurant in Davenport, a nearby city.

Price then drove them to the coffee house to meet Clinton after vetting them for about a half-hour.

The three got the lion’s share of Mrs. Clinton’s time and participated in what breathless news reports described as a ’roundtable’– the first of many in her brief Iowa campaign swing.

Bird himself is a frequent participant in Iowa Democratic Party events. He interned with President Obama’s 2012 presidential re-election campaign, and was tapped to chauffeur Vice President Joe Biden in October 2014 when he visited Davenport.

‘What happened is, we were just asked to be there by Troy,’ Bird said Wednesday in a phone interview….

It’s unclear how many Iowans featured in photographs with Clinton that rocketed around the country on Tuesday were planted.

If the coffee shop crowd was planted, what about that near-perfect Chipotle incognito appearance.

You know, the one which was so incognito that someone tipped off Maggie Haberman at The NY Times that Hillary was there.

Haberman then called the Chipotle manager, who professed not to know, but pulled security camera video to create the Burrito Bowl image heard round the world.  The media went gaga, and conservatives went gag gag.

It was more than perfect. Hillary was just a person buying a Burrito Bowl, like the regular folk, minding her own business on an All-American road trip. Not looking for publicity. But publicity just happened to find her. Uh huh.

That Chipotle appearance was just too cute, by half.

So who tipped off Haberman? The campaign? An operative working for the campaign? People playing the same role as in the coffee shop, making sure the photo ops were just right?

I emailed Haberman about her tip, whether it was from the campaign or someone else, but she didn’t respond.  Can’t say I blame her, I wouldn’t reveal the source of a tip.

Oh, it’s probably nothing.  Just a little birdie.

Oh crap. The media are going to do for her what they’re doing for Obama.

Will the sycophantic lap dogs never cease?

At least we still have LI to bring us the facts.

Of course, Juan Valdez is no where to be seen.

The MSM worship Obama, but they love Hillary. Critics of Obama have been treated as if they’re non-believers or ignorant savages. Critics of Hillary will be treated as if they just called someone’s kid homely and stupid.

Her whole campaign from beginning to end will be a scripted Hollywood production. Thank goodness it’s not porn.

I predict that she is not going to be the Democratic candidate. My rule of thumb is that whoever is the front-runner before the primaries start will NOT be the candidate for either party.

Moreover, today I overheard a couple of very Democratic women discussing the race. They don’t want her to run, and they expect somebody else to show up.

Also, you would be dismayed but not surprised to hear what they think of that fine Republican field. The Democratic slander machine has been running overtime, already. It was particularly choice to hear their scathing takedown of Sens. Paul and Rubio, those arrogant, inexperienced fools who think they can be president. One of them did comment that she never paid attention to politics until Barack Obama ran. (This woman is at least 50). As one put it “Jeb Bush was at least a governor!”

Of course, this is California, where the voters pay no attention to what is happening, elect the same party to office cycle after cycle, and blame the Republicans for everything that goes wrong, despite the fact that there is no viable Republican presence in the state. Seriously, California has exactly the government it deserves.

I bet the Wellesley grad, Yale Law grad, First Lady of Arkansas, First Lady of the U.S., U.S. Senator and Secretary of State is looking forward to the Iowa state fair. She’ll get to enjoy watching a pig judging contest and eating delicious fried Twinkies. Then maybe she’ll drop by a Chick-Fil-A on the way home. It sure beats having to fly around the country in a private jet staying in five star hotels so rooms full of sycophants can pay you $300,000 a pop to breath the same rarefied air she breaths.

Actually, I’m holding out hope that Iowa’s junior Senator, Joni Ernst, will invite Hillary to a bi-partisan hog castrating event while she’s there. Then they can ask other very regular people to join them in a mountain oyster fry. Nothing like munching on fried pig testicles and washing it down with lots of warm flat beer on tap. I doubt it gets any better than that for a regular old gal like Hillary.

    ha … pretty good .. except for the part where you characterize farmers as drinking warm flat beer and eating pig testicles. They could arrange that for Hillary, I’m sure, but farmers generally eat higher on the hog. heh

These perpetual, farcical and contrived PR stunts of Queen Hillary — who has amassed an absurd amount of wealth doing nothing productive post-Clinton-presidency — attempting to mingle with the proletariat and act as if she has something in common with their aspirations, anxieties and modes of existence, are going to be the most revolting and nauseating aspects of her campaign.

Hillary Clinton goes to a primary school in New York to talk about the world. After her talk she offers question time.

One little boy puts up his hand. Hillary asks him what his name is. “Kenneth.” “And what is your question, Kenneth?” “I have three questions: First – whatever happened in Benghazi? Second – why would you run for President after your husband shamed the office? And, Third – whatever happened to all those things you took when you left the White House?” Just then the bell rings for recess.

Hillary Clinton informs the kiddies that they will continue after recess. When they resume Hillary says, “Okay where were we? Oh, that’s right, question time. Who has a question?”

A different little boy puts his hand up; Hillary points him out and asks him what his name is. “Larry.” “And what is your question, Larry?” “I have five questions: First – whatever happened in Benghazi? Second – why would you run for President after your husband shamed the office? Third – whatever happened to all those things you took when you left the White House? Fourth – why did the recess bell go off 20 minutes early? And, Fifth – what happened to Kenneth?”

    You’re an excellent speller Henry.

    “MSNBC/NYT/LAT/CBS/NBC/ABC/PBS/NPR… is how you spell the name of the party to which doddering Hillary belongs!
