"Now [Hillary Clinton] can add 'fashion muse' and 'footwear model' to the list [of important titles], thanks to Katy Perry, who designed a pair of pumps in her honor, dubbing them The Hillary."

"And when Clinton got her hands on a pair of the baby pink pumps, she was more than happy to show them off to their best effect for Perry’s Instagram."

Effuses People Magazine's "Style" section.

Speaking of style, what atrocious writing style! When I hear "got her hands on a pair of baby pink pumps," I'm the kind of person who immediately wants to say: and got her feet on a pair of adult blue gloves. And when I hear "more than happy," I go looking for the George Carlin clip:



ADDED: I got to that link via Drudge, who follows it with what I think is a non-accidental line-up of links:



Thanks to Fernandinande (commenting in the café post below) for prompting me to acknowledge Drudge and to perceive intentional drudgtaposition. Notice how the word "pump" appears twice. Well, what do you think? Intentional comic juxtaposition? Here's another way to frame the screenshot. What do you think of this? (Click to enlarge and clarify.)



You've got the 2 images of something normally unseen. We peer in utero at unborn babies. (What are they doing?) And we gawk endlessly at a belly a man had dressed to cover. Bracketing these 2 images of human beings who did not choose self-exposure are 2 women who dearly want and demand our attention, who pose with forthright willingness for the camera: 1. Hillary Clinton, positioning herself like a cute-girl marionette, displays pop-star-branded candy-colored shoes, and 2. Ayn Rand stares at us in utterly serious black and white, imposing her imperious will that says we must see her as both distinctly beautiful and absolutely devoid of girlishness.

Stuff like this is Hillary fulfilling her destiny.

MayBee said...

The pop star captioned the shot, “⚡️POWER PUMP⚡️your way over to katyperrycollections.com for the last few hours of the spring 25% sale❗@HillaryClinton is wearing #TheHillary,” concluding with what we are all thinking while gazing upon this image, “(OMG I LOVE HER SO MUCH)”

Is that what we were all thinking?

johns said...

Keep Hillary cool and relevant for 2020!! This has to be a remake of "Death Becomes Her."

tim in vermont said...

Looks like the Trump presidency has caused her to shed some pounds maybe, is there nothing that man can't do?

tim in vermont said...

Johns won the thread early.

tim in vermont said...

"Over her life, Hillary has had many important titles bestowed on her..."

Ain't that the truth? Earned on her own? Not so much.

jaydub said...

It woulld be fun if she steps in dog poo the first time she puts them on.

JPS said...

MayBee, good catch.

The key is the scope of "we." It wasn't intended to include you, me, or anyone who thinks like us, so the statement is true.

Lyssa said...

Those are pretty high heels. If Ms. Perry had been paying attention, she would have noticed that Mrs. Clinton favors much lower heels, like most women her age. I doubt that she's keeping those on for more than a quick photo op.

stever said...

Nice to see Hillary able to stand up so effortlessly. Balance is a big deal. Next up, walking up stairs.

Big Mike said...

Hillary's fashion sense seems to be on a par with her political skills.

Roy Jacobsen said...

When I hear celebrities going all squee over Hillary, I go looking for Mr. Creosote clips.

Roy Jacobsen said...

Not the exploding part.

Drago said...

See?! Hillary is a cool "everyday" kind of gal and is just like all of us!

Team Clinton has clearly determined that the -Russia Stole This From Me!!- along with even more "Hillary Humanization Programs" will be sufficient to give Hillary what she deserves.

It's really quite astonishing that the lefties are such voice-actuated automaton lemmings that they let this continue.

“who designed a pair of pumps in her honor, dubbing them The Hillary”

You call tell that these shoe were made the Harridan herself. They have, right out of the box, the foot-stink infused in them thoroughly.

traditionalguy said...

The Trump re-election campaign must be paying Clinton to do the appearances. We know she used to appear for $250,000, and that was before her market value crashed.

Guimo said...

Not to worry...Hillary made her mark as the lead female role in the original "The Manchurian Candidate." Or was that Angela Lansbury? I can't recall.

AReasonableMan said...

Things must be going reeaaally bad over in Trump world, an Obama and a Clinton post on the same day!

Unfortunately, Buddy left this world long ago.

As for what the twins are doing, the Drudge caption says they are kissing but it looks to me like they're plotting their escape.

Ann Althouse said...

I watched the "mountain" video at Drudge's link. It's not a mountain. But if you enjoy hearing California's say "holy shit" and "holy sugar"...

Ann Althouse said...

Funny to name shoes for someone who ran unsuccessfully, especially when one of her problems was a seeming inability to stand upright.

Rick Turley said...

That clear heel is as close as Hillary will ever get to the glass slipper. On the other hand, those shoes will be ab fab with the Nantucket outfit.

"Things must be going reeaaally bad over in Trump world, an Obama and a Clinton post on the same day!"

Read the front-page of the NYT and tell me what you think I'm missing.

All I can see is: "Trump Tops Obama, Bush and Clinton in Golfing and Private Getaways So Far."

I interpret that to mean Trump is doing very well right now.

The Obama scandal came from the top of the NYT front page.

exiledonmainstreet said...

I guess Hillary's "baby pink" heels are an improvement over Abortion Barbie's pink tennis shoes.

Isn't the term "baby pink" racist and non-inclusive? Rather like "flesh" crayons? After all, only privileged oppressor babies are pink.

chuck said...

Sarah Palin would have been a far better model for shoes. I mean, who looked at Hillary's feet? Seriously, google "palin shoes", then try "hillary shoes".

Darrell said...

Hillary Clinton is as smart as she is cute.

exiledonmainstreet said...

" I mean, who looked at Hillary's feet?"

Looking at her feet is preferable to looking at her face or at her pantsuits.

readering said...

The screenshot should include the color photo of the beautiful Congresswoman Gabbard. Drudge is a big fan of the controversial isolationist.

AJ Lynch said...

Gabbard is not an isolationist. I think she is more likely an opportunist who is eyeing a VP slot in the 2020 election and so she is trying to be whatever [she thinks] the Dem base wants. That is why the old Dem regime is condemning her- they fear she will siphon power away from them.

EDH said...

Maybe Katy Perry can come out with a set of fuzzy pink manicles to honor of the return of slavery to Hillary's Libya?

johns said...

This thread qualifies as Hillary Derangement Syndrome. I say this as one who has a bad case of it. Can't get over it. My wife had OJ Derangement when he was found not guilty. But I said to her, "Sweetheart, sometimes people get away with murder." And that cured her. She still credits me with giving her the perspective to quiet her hysteria.
Does anyone have a similar bromide to get over Hillary Derangement? Or is the media's love of Hillary just beyond knowing? I thank you in advance.

Darrell said...

Does anyone have a similar bromide to get over Hillary Derangement?

Sure. Sometimes people get away with murder.

MadisonMan said...

How much was Hillary paid for the photo?

Portlandmermaid said...

It's very Easter-y.

madAsHell said...

Someone thought is was a good idea for Cankles to model shoes??

Professional lady said...

Those shoes would go really nicely with a pussy hat. Sorry, could not resist.

John said...

I saw a pair of shoes similar to this the other day in Payless when I was stocking up on shoes before they close. I now have a lifetime supply no matter what happens.

I suspect they were $29.95 with a BOGO if you bought 2 pr in Payless. Slap Katy whosits name on them and the identical shoes are a $600 item in Nordstrom.

And what's with the housecoat? Is she pimping for the Salvation Army? Surely the Sally Anns can dress her better than that. All she lacks is curlers.

John said...

I can never remember how to spell Hillary. Over at the Isthmus I routinely get mocked for spelling ti with one l. It is a sign of disrespect, apparently. So now I try to remember to spell it with one l as most people spell Hilary.

This morning I had a realization that there is a simply way to remember the 2 ls. All I need to do is remember loser-loser.

Bill Peschel said...

Does anyone have a similar bromide to get over Hillary Derangement?

"Our top story tonight, Hillary Clinton says she will retire to private life."

Remember that in horror films, it's not over until the monster is destroyed.

JAORE said...

Pink shoes by a less-than-brilliant pop star.

Hmmm, does that move the "More likely to vote for Hillary" needle? Nope, still holding fast at zero.

Yancey Ward said...

Darrell wins the month of April and May. That nearly cost me my keyboard.

AprilApple said...

There she is again in another Mao jacket.

Titus said...

No she can't. She will never be fashionable.

tim in vermont said...

That was a good one by Daryl too, I may have called the thread early.

William Chadwick said...

With Hillary, wouldn't jackboots be a more suitable form of footwear?

AlbertAnonymous said...

Next up from the Katy Perry Collection... the Chelsea

JaimeRoberto said...

Is Dr. Evil responsible for her outerwear?

Drago said...

AReasonableMan: "Things must be going reeaaally bad over in Trump world, an Obama and a Clinton post on the same day"

If only there were other sources of information on what is happening in Washington DC and the rest of the world to test that theory.

FullMoon said...

Is she tap dancing? Wrong shoes for that

MadTownGuy said...

This is something new: somebody making money off of Hillary Clinton, rather than the other way around.

Jack Sherman said...

An awkward step on the comeback trail - maybe we'll finally get to know her?

William said...

That's a sort of flattering photo of Hillary. It can be done if care is taking......They keep trying to take an unflattering picture of Ivanka, but it's hard to do. Maybe if they use a long distance lens they can catch her with her mouth full at some restaurant. It's easy to take an unflattering picture of Trump. It's rare that you don't see a picture of him in mid snarl.......People here are so naive. Do you really think that Hillary doesn't get a cut from the sale of these shoes? She gets extra money if they're sold through the Nordstrom platform. The Clinton Foundation is going into talent management. It's a natural segue way for them.

J. Farmer said...

I will say one thing...those shoes are pretty damn hot. But still, this is the quintessential Hillary-as-fashionista photo. I could do without the Chico's-inspired turquoise accessories, but those sunglasses and that shot. Slays.

Birches said...

The top rated comment over at PEOPLE: A shoe for the cloven footed woman on the go.

I love America.

Bay Area Guy said...

Gorsuch on the Supreme Court and Hillary in Katy Perry pumps?

Yes, I'd say it was a good day.

veni vidi vici said...

Hillary making a big show of standing in a pair of heels, principally to prove she's capable of standing in a pair of heels without losing her precious balance.

Yeah, we care a lot.

Achilles said...

"Things must be going reeaaally bad over in Trump world, an Obama and a Clinton post on the same day!"

Where is Obama? Why is he hiding outside the country? Is he really going to stay out for the next decade to avoid all of those depositions?
