Hillary Clinton will betray the American holiday of July 4 by engaging in a streamed video interview with British newspaper The Guardian on Friday.
The news source is currently soliciting advice from its readers about what the interviewer should ask Clinton. A video on The Guardian‘s website proposes several possible inquiries ranging from topics like foreign policy, women’s rights and even interior decorating.
“She said she won’t address whether or not she plans to run for president, but anything else is fair game,” Guardian assistant foreign editor Phoebe Greenwood states in the video. “Like, what does she think (have) been Obama’s greatest mistakes? And, are any of those to do with White House interior design? What went through her mind when she authorized a drone strike in Waziristan? She’s a champion of women’s rights, but where does she stand on abortion? How are the U.S. failures to blame for the current violent chaos in Iraq? What makes her laugh?”
The British reporter clearly didn’t listen to Hillary’s brief speech on the Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby decision Monday, during which the former secretary of State described herself as “pro-choice.” And, if pictures count as evidence, her husband Bill certainly makes her laugh.
Why would Hillary wish to spend such an American holiday — the holiday marking our independence from England — talking to the British? Perhaps she’s sick of getting (deservedly) criticized for her comments about being “dead broke,” although her poverty controversy will undoubtedly come up at some point during the interview with The Guardian. Better that than her embarrassing book sales.
Unfortunately for Hillary, the British won’t be voting in the 2016 presidential election, and she certainly won’t appeal to American voters by snubbing such a festive holiday. Maybe her utter rejection of July 4 means she won’t be running for president after all.
