If you're like most people, you don't categorize your friends by the color of their skin --- but Hillary Clinton isn't most people. When recently asked a racist question, Hillary fumbled, trying to come up with a politically correct answer to fill in the blanks.
"Hillary Clinton was asked about her most meaningful conversation with a black friend. Have they ever asked, like Maxine Waters, what is your most meaningful conversation with a white friend?" Glenn said Monday on The Glenn Beck Program. "And who would have guessed it, it got very awkward."
REPORTER: What is the most meaningful conversation you've had with an African-American friend?
CLINTON: Can I tell you that I am blessed to have many . . . a crew of great friends. And I’ve had two chiefs of staff who were my African-American women friends, Maggie Williams and Cheryl Mills. I have been blessed to have people by my side in politics, like Minyon Moore who is one of the leaders of my campaign. I’ve had a great group of young people who I have been really motivated by and frankly learned from.
So I really have had a lifetime of friendship, going back to my college years when one of my best friends was an African-American student. So I can’t compress into one conversation . . . they’ve supported me. They’ve chastised me. They’ve raised issues with me. They’ve tried to expand my musical tastes.
So we’ve had a lot of great times because of our friendships, so I can’t really pick one conversation out of 50 years of conversations.
"Can you think of the most meaningful conversation you've had with any group. White woman. I don't know. First of all, I don't categorize them. Secondly, I don't rank them. That's not the way you would do that," Co-host Stu Burguiere said.
"Frankly, it's a racist question. It's a racist question," Co-host Pat Gray added.
The question, could have --- and should have --- been phrased in a different way.
"You could say, 'What's the most meaningful conversation you've had with someone about race?' Or, 'Most meaningful conversation that you've had that made you see race in a different way?' That, I could do. That, I could do," Glenn said. "She knows it's a trap, but she's handling it horribly. She immediately goes into that false Hillary Clinton," Glenn said.
Unfortunately, the simple and honest solution was not an option for Hillary.
"Of course, the problem with someone like Hillary Clinton, who is so disingenuous and has built her campaign on lies, is you can't say what every person should say, which is I don't categorize my conversations by the skin color of the people I'm having them with," Stu said. "But when you support something like Black Lives Matter and you have your audience booing people who say All Lives Matter, you can't answer that question that way."
Hillary's problem runs even deeper than that.
"Most meaningful? 'Well, I've only had four. So out of the four . . . oh, I argued the bill one time when I had a black waiter at my table. Well, that was probably . . . that was probably the most . . . that was probably the longest conversation I've ever had with a black person.' Jeez," Glenn said.
