"Hillary can't walk to a podium without an edit."

That's the top rated comment at the YouTube video "Hillary Clinton FULL Speech Al Smith Dinner Charity, Takes Hits at Donald Trump - 10/20/16."

The edit is at 0:03:



Since you've got the whole speech there, let me give you Trump's whole speech:



Oh! He pats Hillary on the upper arm as he passes her. Is touching allowed?

I haven't watched either past the walk-up to the lectern. I consider the Al Smith Dinner a grisly event. Both candidates somehow have to go, and they tell jokes at each other's expense... for the children... or whatever. Ugh.

ADDED: It's interesting watching those fancy people in the background. It's a swank event, they know they within camera range, the presidential candidates are speaking, and they are looking at their iPhones half the time — swiping, even putting on reading glasses to get a better look. Etiquette be damned. Appearances be damned.

Hillary can't afFord to look like the 38th President.

chickelit said...

Don't you have a "Hillary stumbles" tag? It seems appropriate.

traditionalguy said...

The moderator called DJT, "the Kid from Queens with a big mouth and a big heart." That summed up Trump as only the community that has long known a man can do it.

Hillary was in her public mode where she claims she respects Catholics.

coupe said...

That woman with her breasts hanging out, playing with her gloves and taking pictures with her phone, was obnoxious. I probably know who she is, but I can't think of her name.

She seems a bit old for that much breast to be out on the table.

Clyde said...

That's Maria Bartiromo of Fox Business Channel, and I could not disagree with you more, coupe. She was clearly the winner of the night.

Bob Boyd said...

I think it's Maria Bartiromo

The Al Smith dinner is from a bygone era, when men smoked cigars and joked about each other's penis. It used to be as rough and tumble as Dean Martin's televised rousts only hinted at. This should have been ladyfinger's milieu but, once again, he phoned it in. He's working on what he's going to do November ninth instead of the eighth. Funny, but Republicans had a chance of winning this one if they had nominated someone who was the least bit Presidental.

Must SEE TV:

More interesting is the video (multiple angles) of the Clinton staffer feeding questions to Andrea Mitchell and other "journalists" on the plane after the third debate. Watch the second video when he sends the question to the other reporter and points to his phone.

She has a strong resemblance to Sophia Loren, btw.

Rob said...

So who did edit the video? Who's Ben King, who posted the video?

Which clip and at what point please so I don't have to endure watching them both.

Aha, I remember her for her wall street reporting now.

holdfast said...

Is she married to Jack Welch or something?

holdfast said...

She was the original "Money Honey" back in her CNBC days.

David Begley said...

Hillary is a sick, sick woman; both mentally and physically.

She is the most cheated on woman on in American history. More so than Bill Cosby's wife. Why does she stay married to Bill? Has she no self-respect? Was the money worth it? Why are at least 40% of Americans wiling to vote for this nasty woman?

Prediction. If she wins, Bill doesn't move into the WH. Divorce.

Serious questions and I would like to see replies.

holdfast said...

So I just watched some bits of the vid, sound muted for my sanity.

Maria's cleavage definitely won the evening.

Bob Boyd said...

She was distracting, but in a good way.

YoungHegelian said...

I think it's Maria Bartiromo

AKA "The Money Honey". She's now with Fox Business News.

AprilApple said...

Ugh. Indeed.

rehajm said...

There's no geriatric equilibrium event. The 'edit' looks like an innocent jump in video rather than a cut and splice edit.

Alternate Video.

Bob Boyd said...

I thought Trump's joke about Hillary saying "pardon me" was fantastic.

chickelit said...

David Begley predicted... If she wins, Bill doesn't move into the WH. Divorce.

Counter prediction: If Trump wins, Bill goes to the Inaugural Party and Hillary doesn't

n.n said...

The unplanned children. The few survivors of abortion rites.

Bob Boyd said...

Who's the sweaty guy with the medals who keeps blocking my view of Maria?

Ann Althouse said...

"There's no geriatric equilibrium event. The 'edit' looks like an innocent jump in video rather than a cut and splice edit."

I know, but it's funny.

sane_voter said...

Hillary getting up and walking to the podium shown in rehajm's link starts at 23:18

David Begley said...

Lawyer and former Bill Clinton lover Dolly Kyle wrote that Bill Clinton bragged to her that he had had sex with 2,000 women. Let's add another 1,000 since Dolly's last encounter with Billy.

Does America want a woman who has been cheated on 3,000 times in charge of the nuke codes? It only takes four minutes to launch per Hillary. Dangerous.

Titus said...

The woman's tits are amazing.

The White Gloves though-so tacky.

rehajm said...

When was the last time the Republicans nominated someone who wasn't pretty much of a chump? Bush the Elder. And even he only stood out because of his (unappreciated by him) relationship to Reagan. The last real winner was Reagan himself.

Bob Boyd said...

Thanks rehajm.

Ford 38, meet Ford 45...

What are you talking about? I think that was a wink to the audience that would never invite him, but for this tradition with the nominees.

Where is the heart? Where is the donated school/hospital/library building from this "builder (and I have worked for non-builders who did donate whole buildings)? He has a horrible reputation for charity! People with less than he claims to be worth have done much more for New York and the world.

And the "kid from Queens" (which he is embarrassed about) grew up in a mansion in Jamaica Estates being ferreted about by chauffeurs.

Played you all for suckers.

mockturtle said...

being ferreted about by chauffeurs.

Ferreted?? Really?? LOL!

exiledonmainstreet said...

"The moderator called DJT, "the Kid from Queens with a big mouth and a big heart."

He should have called Hill "the kid from Illinois with a big ass and a big cavity in her chest where a heart should be."

exiledonmainstreet said...

Ferreted?? Really?? LOL!

I'm picturing a Roman chariot pulled by rodents.

Queen Hillary is carried aloft by a horde of sweaty flunkies with press passes.

exiledonmainstreet said...

"Prediction. If she wins, Bill doesn't move into the WH. Divorce."

No, there won't be a divorce. I think he'll spend as little time at the WH as possible, prefering to dick bimbos in Westchester County or Pedophile Island, but he'll turn up for things like big State dinners.

Their sham of a marriage has worked out very well for them - why divorce now?

I think Princess Chelsea will play a very prominent role, as she will be groomed to continue the dynasty. Let's hope they have as much success with that as the Kennedys have had with Caroline.

Birches said...

If Hillary didn't bring Bill to the White House with her, I might actually gain some respect for her. But they are apart of the same racket, so it will just be character assassinations to the other women.

Unknown said...

Chelsea? Isn't there some comment by her floating around about how she wished Hillary's mother--her grandmother -- had taken advantage of the woman's right to choose an abortion?

Ah yes. She actually said she wished her grandmother (maybe great grandmother) would have had access to Planned Parenthood's services because her grandmother was an unwanted child.

Sheesh. Chelsea doesn't want to be here, is my guess.

I just watched the tape of Trump's speech, and it wasn't as bad as the news reports led me to expect. Not great, and not well delivered in that he read the text, but not bad. I don't understand -- maybe someone can explain to me -- why Hillary pretending to like Catholics was supposed to be funny.

sane_voter said...

Does this dinner make one iota difference in the race? McCain was hilarious in 2008 and look at all the good it did him.

sane_voter said...

The press was probably disappointed Trump didn't grab Maria B by the pussy.

buwaya puti said...

Because of one of Podestas emails ragging on Catholics who were backward and unfashionable.

Mac McConnell said...

I didn't notice anything Clinton or Trump said, I did notice Maria Bartiromo's red dress in the background.

mccullough said...

Another stupid establishment tradition.

Have you seen the 2500 sq/ft home Hilary grew up in bought when the average home was 1000.

Fabi said...

I'm voting for someone who's been repeatedly ferreted? Good to know.

buwaya said...

It was a good speech, and funny.
No doubt received in a different way on either side of "The Wall" -

Michael Moore, in Rolling Stone, said that for his new documentary he went "beyond the wall, where the white walkers are".

That's so cool its cold.

The Godfather said...

@buwaya puti: Thanks for the explanation of the Hillary hates Catholics joke. I follow politics pretty closely but I'd missed this. If you don't know the backstory Trump's statement sounds pretty crude.

Mary Beth said...

Because of this email.

buwaya said...

"If you don't know the backstory Trump's statement sounds pretty crude."

Because you need to be outside the media bubble to get all these references.
They are poorly covered unless you follow Drudge or Freerepublic or the like.

There are masses of stuff in the Wikileaks dumps, its coming too fast to digest.

buwaya said...

Actually, this was covered in WaPo -

wildswan said...

Cardinal Doyle was Archbishop of Milwaukee in the era when the diocese was trying to recover from Archbishop Weakland. Weakland brought in lots of gay priests who assaulted young boys in the parishes. It was all covered up by the Chancery until finally exposed by the newspapers. The diocese was bankrupted paying damages to the assaulted boys. Moreover when the truth came out it was also discovered that Weakland had embezzled church money to pay blackmail to his former gay lover. So this is part of what Cardinal Doyle means when he says that if the Cardinals and priests haven't destroyed the Church yet (as Weakland nearly did in Milwaukee) then the Democratic party will not be able to do it (see the Democratic party and its "Catholic Spring"). One reason why is that people are not as trusting as they were before the Weakland types showed what Boomer liberals mean by springtime in the Church.

SukieTawdry said...

I recall a clip of JFK at the dinner joking that his father refused to pay for a landslide. Now that was funny. I also thought Bush II got off a good one: "This is an impressive crowd, the haves and the have mores. Some people call you the elite. I call you my base."

Big Mike said...

Funny, but Republicans had a chance of winning this one if they had nominated someone who was the least bit Presidental [sic].

Funny, but many of Trump's early wins came in states with open primaries, meaning that Democrats could vote in the GOP primary.

Sydney said...

Why are Catholic Charities sucking up to a pro-abortion politician to get money? Tsk.

Original Mike said...

"Funny, but many of Trump's early wins came in states with open primaries, meaning that Democrats could vote in the GOP primary."

Wisconsin has an open primary and Trump had his hat handed to him.

CatherineM said...

I don't know how any of you can watch the two speeches and not see what a piece of shit is the Donald. Seriously, it's like Tony Soprano put on a white tie. Donald sit there while Hilary speaks with his arms crossed tightly. Weirdly. Like a child. Hillary gives a roast with self deprecating and good humor (very little texting behind her...I was like what is Althouse referring to?), Donald the dimwit goes dark. Piece of shit.

Hillary reminds the crowd how the Irish Catholics were treated (even in 1960), as Al Smith was, back in the 1930s. Meanwhile Trump's father went to anti-Catholic KKK rallies. Her speech was perfect. Funny and classy with a perfect ending. She knows the crowd. Donald did his Tony Soprano speech with his worst lines written by the guys at the Bada Bing to all the jerks in the audience who "did him wrong."

And I don't like Hillary! You MORONS who think this guy, who has no idea how the Supreme Court or any branch of government works, gives a rats ass about your guns (who said in his books he wants to eliminate) or abortion (which he was for and since 2015 he is against), have me liking Hillary more than the Republican nominee.

All he cares about is his "brand" and the Alex Jones type TV station he starts on November 9th. "Believe me!" Trump's political mentor Roger Stone, thinks JFK Jr. was murdered by the Clintons for some reason. He is probably the one who told Donald that Ted Cruz's dads was involved in the JFK assassination. This is the guy you will vote for???? Shame.

Not true.

Walker? "The next Hitler!"
Bush? "OMG the next Hitler!"
Rubio? "WTF he's the next Hitler!"
...

Do I need to go on? Point is, the Left would have successfully demonized whoever the GOP nominated. They even managed to make Mitten the Next Hitler last time around.

CatherineM.
Your are fundamentally misunderstanding the Trump phenomena. They aren't voting FOR Trump.They are voting to KEEP the Clintions OUT of the Whitehouse. Trump is the vehicle. Not the destination.
Clear now?

Good grief ! Another Hillary troll with a blank profile. Well, that money has to be spent on something.
