Yup, she just happened to be at Costco and wandered into the place totally oblivious to all the Hillary Clinton signs. Totally random, yo!
Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor is offering the back story behind her encounter with Hillary Clinton at a Virginia Costco last weekend.
In an interview that aired Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” the justice said it was “not planned.”
Sotomayor and the former secretary of state chatted as Clinton, a potential Democratic presidential contender, signed books as part of her tour to promote her new memoir, “Hard Choices,” and generated some buzz in Washington.
“Everybody is telling me there were signs [for Clinton] out front,” Sotomayor said. “And I went through the side door, so there were no signs at the side door. Hence, I didn’t know. And a nice lady at the pharmacy counter recognized me and we started chatting.
“And she says, are you here with the other lady? And I said what other lady?” Sotomayor continued. “And she mentioned Madam Secretary. And that’s how I found out.”
Lame. Is there anything these people won’t lie about?
