Just like all those former staffers running into her in the woods, this was totally spontaneous and unplanned, or something. But how appropriate is it that she shows up at a ‘Snowflake’ Ball?
Must have been named after all the delicate snowflakes curled up in a ball unable to cope with her humiliating defeat.
Katy Perry was the night’s big honoree, but Hillary Clinton got the biggest ovation as the former presidential candidate presented the pop star with an award from UNICEF at Tuesday’s Snowflake Ball.
Clinton, who lost the recent election to Donald Trump, gave Perry the Audrey Hepburn Humanitarian Award for her charitable efforts with the organization. Her appearance at the event was a surprise, and Clinton got a sustained standing ovation from the cheering crowd.
She described Perry as someone who has “the spirit and the energy and the compassion that Audrey Hepburn brought to her work from UNICEF.”
She added that Perry had the most Twitter followers, then jokingly added that she “might have some competition” — an apparent reference to the ever-tweeting president-elect.
Clinton also said Perry’s lyrics “remind us when you get knocked down to get back up” — causing more cheers to erupt in the audience.
Perry was a big supporter of the Democrat, who won the popular vote, and even campaigned for her. She broke into tears when Clinton surprised her with her appearance at the event.
Sure, a total surprise. We think in today’s parlance that’s known as fake news.
