What has this woman done the past few years, other than leaving Americans to die in Libya, to deserve an award?
Hillary Clinton said Tuesday she’s proud to have been part of an administration that worked to ban brutal interrogations and said the U.S. should never condone or practice torture anywhere in the world.
Clinton spoke about the importance of the nation acting in accordance with its values as she accepted an award from The Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice & Human Rights at a New York gala.
Clinton said Kennedy, who was assassinated in 1968, would agree it’s possible to fight terrorism and reduce crime and violence without relying on torture abroad or unnecessary force at home.
During her speech, she declared, “yes, black lives matter,” a mantra of demonstrators around the country who have been protesting recent grand jury decisions not to indict white police officers involved in the deaths of unarmed black men in Ferguson, Missouri, and in New York.
Clinton, a former U.S. first lady, New York senator and U.S. secretary of state, is viewed as the likely Democratic presidential nominee if she runs. She was honored at the Kennedy organization’s star-studded Ripple of Hope Award ceremony.
Now that’s bold, decisive leadership to come out weeks later and agree with the liberal mob. Meanwhile, she was also recognized as the worst selling People magazine cover of 2014, which was not mentioned at her award ceremony.
The infamous People issue featuring Hillary Clinton was a total flop, according to data. The cover created some controversy. For example, some argued it was a subtle attempt by People to portray Clinton as elderly and differently-abled by creating the impression that she was using an old person’s walker. Efforts to deny the walker claim only served to raise further questions. Washington Postcolumnist Ruth Marcus investigated the matter.
The controversy, however, failed to translate into sales. AdWeek reports that the Clinton issue wasPeople’s worst-selling cover of the year, barely cracking 500,000 copies.
