Granny Clinton Magically Finds Random Guy to Quote Scripture With, CNN Gushes

This is so obviously staged, yet somehow CNN runs with it. The idea that this woman would just happen upon an guy quoting scripture and she’s knows the exact lines defies belief. Yet this is the garbage they’re trying to sell people.

Weird, but if a Republican started quoting scripture, which would actually be believable, CNN would be having conniptions about getting religion out of politics.

Hillary Clinton is a lifelong Methodist, but you wouldn’t know that by listening to most of her speeches. She rarely speaks — at least at any length — about her faith.

But the presidential candidate broke with that tradition on Wednesday when she reflected on her religious study and background, during an impromptu conversation with Rev. Frederick Donnie Hunt at Main Street Bakery.

Hunt came to the yellow-walled bakery to enjoy a sweet treat while he studied the Bible, unaware — he said after — that a presidential candidate was about to visit. His quiet reflection was abruptly turned upside down when around 20 press and campaign staff rolled into the bakery with Clinton.

Oh sure, totally unaware that Grandma was coming by. No idea, none whatsoever!

“We are heading out of town and we were told to stop by and get some good stuff to take with us,” Clinton said as she walked through the door, flanked by dozens of cupcakes and cakes.

After chatting with the bakery’s staff and picking out some cupcakes for the road, the presidential candidate saddled up to Hunt and asked him what he was studying.

Oh, she just randomly found this guy. Sure, this is credible.

“Corinthians 13,” Hunt said calmly, almost nonplussed by the candidate.

“Oh I know it well,” Clinton said.

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud,” the passage says.

Kim Jong-Un would be embarrassed by the shamelessness of it all.

“You’re doing what is the most important thing to do, it’s continuing to study and learn what the scripture says and what it means,” she said. “I have a preacher friend who sends me scripture and devotionals, sometimes mini-sermons every day.”

Hunt told Clinton that you “always learn something when you read it again and inspect it.”

“Well, it’s alive,” Clinton said. “It’s the living word.”

Think I’m going to vomit.

I was impressed and glad that she knew the scripture that I was reading and studying at the time,” he said, reached by phone after the event. “It impressed me that someone running for president has that background. It is important to me that we have a president that has some belief.

Oy. It would be so easy to prove this a fraud if a reporter ambushed her with some other passages, but that will never happen with such a staged, choreographed campaign. Besides, the media is pretty much all in her back pantsuit pocket.

    He just happened to be studying one of the most oft quotes lines of scripture. Every wedding I’ve ever been to uses this.

    This is so far beyond believable as to be absurd and this will be the norm for the next 18 months GOD HELP US!

    Is that quoting scripture too?

    1 Corinthians 13? Really? Could she choose anything more banal? (Mark me, the scripture itself is sublime with far more depth and complexity than people tend to realize, but society’s use of it is trite and vapid.) The only people this will impress are those who sometimes hear this passage (at weddings) and John 3:16… maybe.

    But she probably figures it won’t matter, and maybe she’s right.

    Script for her next trip:

    Hillary walks up to “random” guy with an American History book.

    “What are you studying?”

    “Signing of the Declaration of Independence.”

    “I know it well. July 4, 1776.”

    or

    Hillary walks up to “random” guy with a copy of Moby Dick.

    “What are you studying?”

    “Moby Dick.”

    “I know it well. ‘Call me Ishmael’.”

    or

    Hillary walks up to “random” guy with a math book.

    “What are you studying?”

    “Pythagorean Theorem”

    “I know it well. Square of the hypotenuse equals sum of the squares of the opposite sides .”

    (Well, that last one might be a bit of a stretch. I’m only giving even odds on whether she can pronounce “hypotenuse” correctly.)

    …the presidential candidate saddled up to Hunt…

    She “saddled up” to him? Is that how CNN wrote it?

    Did she then ride him like a nightmare hag?

    Nothing is ever “impromptu” and how did she know he was talking out 1 Corinthians:13 and not 2 Corinthians:13? All of these things are scripted when it comes to Hillary.

    What are the odds “Rev Frederick Donnie Hunt” got his ordination and ministerial credentials for $30 off the internet about two days prior to “coincidentally” meeting Shrillary! in a random bakery?

  7. OregonMuse on 28/28/15 at 12:58 pm

    I’ll bet if someone like, oh, say, an actual journalist, did even a cursory background investigation on Rev. Hunt, he would turn out to be some local Democrat activist.

    @RKae –
    She “saddled up” to him? Is that how CNN wrote it?

    Did she then ride him like a nightmare hag?

    CNN used “sidled up to him” but I’m pretty sure they meant “waddled.”

    In 2000, while running for the Senate after having been a New Yorker for ten minutes, Granny went on the Letterman show a and fielded questions about her knowledge of New York State.

    She correctly identified the state bird – bluebird – and the state tree – the maple. But when pressed on what KIND of maple, she hems, haws and then comes up with the correct answer – the SUGAR maple, to throngs of applause:

    http://www.theguardian.com/world/2000/jan/13/uselections2000.usa

    It was later revealed that -surprise! – she’d been given those questions in advance, so the entire thing was just Kabuki theater.

    The contempt this silly old biddie and her minions have for the lapdog media and the citizens is really sickening.
